Money masters the world
Jan 29, 2015

Money masters the world
while cancer's spreading death
Money is our lord
on which we dedicate every breath
Money is a sword
which will cut us at the first chance

Time isn't money;

Time isn't money;

time is your soul
bleeding out
onto your socks.

Money is just
an inferior brand
of toilet paper.

Use it for
what it is worth,

#time   #money  
you were spitting money of all currencies and kind
athena baluyot

you were shrieking about your problems
your teeth were all about this material world
everything was all about you
because that's how you wanted it
you loved yourself
and only yourself

you were spitting money of all currencies and kind
you adore them like how i adore humankind
you boast loudly about the material things you own
you loved your things so much, you turned into one
and you think people would actually love you

boisterous laughs were hidden behind the old brick wall
the you i used to know were a pigment of the past
you are now pitch-black, self centered and selfish

the pit can simply be covered with mud or a beautiful plant
but you dig deeper and fall and ask for succor
because that's what you crave for after all

-because money, that's all you have.
It's only money.

For the first time in my life
I felt ashamed
Of where I came from,
And where I live.

And the worst part is
I can't tell you why.
You'd laugh it off and say
It's only money.

**Money** cant buy **Love**, and **Love** cant

Money cant buy Love, and Love cant buy bread either.

Be wise in your thinking

Wallace Stevens
once wrote
that money
is a kind of poetry;
he did not say
that it is good poetry.

money doesn't just talk
Apr 17, 2015

In some cases
money doesn't just talk
it screams.
Quite frankly it has a big mouth.
