Is money everything ?

Is money everything ?

A Poem by Adesanya Yewande
"

Every now and then , people keeps talking about getting rich, having this and that , i use to wonder is money truly everything to man

"
Is money everything to human ?
Even when they are on sick bed
All they think of is their bank account
What happens to the money after their demise ?

Do we really have to kill for the love of money
Fathers against Sons
Children against Parent
Brothers against sisters

Ready to murder each other for money sake
What happens to true love ?
When all what people care for
is money

Corruption in every nation
Bribery and Nepotism
All for money sake
I wish i could say more

I just wish to know is money everything to human ?

I love this a lot. It's the same with work, we live to work...to well earn money, but sometime people work too much and forget that they still have a family at home waiting for them, or friends...whatever, it's the same. I love your work a lot, thumbs up :)

I love this, my mind can relate to how you're feeling. People think money is everything these days, I think its more important to be your cosmic self. That will make everyone happier in the long run.

These questions are everywhere, in my opinion money is not bad, it is how we use it that is good or bad. Nice series of questions:)

Money is controlled by the 3-5% of the population. Most of the people on this planet. Survive day to day. Land, oil and gold. Does control our world. Can we change this? I don't think so. A powerful poem that asked important questions. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

You are welcome.
I like it, it's really getting at a hard question which makes it compelling. I like how you don't back down and hit the nail on the head throughout. Nice job!

Interesting & compelling line of questioning. I think your poem shows us your view on this question, which I agree with. I think the word "money" is used a little too often. It would be nice to mix it up a little, using "greed" or "possessions" . . . becuz these are the real culprits, the main motivations for people to act in selfish ways. Money, in and of itself, is nothing but a symbol. I'd like to see a little more about the specifics of how people worship material things over the feelings of other people, for example. But this is just my preference. You using "money" may be enuf for other people to visualize all the other stuff that goes along with wanting money.

Capitalism is religion.
Banks are churches.
Bankers are priests.
Wealth is heaven.
Poverty is hell.
Poor people are sinners.
Commodities are blessings.
Money is God
-Miguel D. Lewis

I honestly don't know, but this is indeed a way to think of it (from the reality side)
