Urgently - Poem by Lyn Paul

Money...$
What For?
Sharing
Not sure
For bills, need more
Money.
Money...
Plant a seed
It is what we all need
I want to plant you URGENTLY
A Money tree.
Money,
Is it for giving?
Money
High cost of living
Money.
Money,
Such crime
Money,
People doing time
Money.
Money...
Touching, everyones hands
Germs galore; who cares I have plans
For money.
Money...
Does it make the world turn
Yes, No
One day we will learn.$$$$$$$$$$$$

    We cannot escape the influence of money in life, which your poem illustrates
    so well. Money can cause considerable worries or some satisfaction, in my opinion.

    Good poem here! The age old quandary....will more money bring joy, peace, comfort? For us? For others? For all? For none? Makes us ponder, as a good poem should. Thanks for that! (Report)Reply

    I love the Abba song very much, and I love this poem very much too.
    It underlines the need of money and the need to love money.
    We all work for money, which is the very logical thing to do.
    I think the problem arises if we work for money all the time,
    then we become money's servant.
    Ideally, we work for money and then when it comes our way,
    it is logical that we make money work for us, we use it, enjoy it.
    If we just hoard and be frugal and keep working for it all the time, we become servant and money the boss.
    Imagine all these politicians, big pharma and bankers who have much more than they ever can spend,
    how different would life become if they stop selling their own principles and values for more and more and really decide to make money work for them rather than remaining a enslaved to money.
    Wow, Lyn, this is such a nice and thought provoking poem. Excellent!

    Wonderful poem, it's all too easy to succumb to greed when thinking about money and forget there is much more of greater value in humanity. (Report)Reply

    Beautiful write on truth. Money can buy many things, yet certain things money cannot buy. But greed for money is also not good. You conveyed a beautiful message through this poem. Loved reading it. (Report)Reply

    Money, it gives us a false sense of security. Hope. that was planted deep within us, was for God. When we don't find him, a void remains and we become immensely alone. We think that money is going to fill that void. It's only after we cross the age of 40, we begin to understand merely some of the faint realities of this world. But it's too late, time has left us far behind. Money is a problem that takes a whole lifetime to realize.
    Again, a very thought provoking poem........Thanks
