a word dripping with underlying issues
a word that can bring joy or dispare
it has always been about the money
the money that my parents needed to keep that house
the money that the murdered the old dog
the money that may keep me away from what I want
I refuse to be a slave to money
so I won't write this for the money
I'll write it for me
and for the father stuggling to make ends meet
for the woman having to turn to prostitution
for those other teens that worry at night
"is money what defines me?"
No. It isn't.
Money talks, but the mouth speaks louder.
And we are better, than any price this world puts on you or me.
