My Fir$t Love

A Poem by Lyrical Love
"

Collaboration from CYNTAX & LYRICAL LOVE

"
The root of all evil is so necessary,
January's rent gets us all through February.
We're all faith-based but currency's priority,
If I shouldn't worship dollars, then God, why torture me?
 
For everything...there is a particular price.
Like my Son-Can you pay with your life?
While in preparation for the next step.
Hold the rope... watch the risers-look down, upon your brother's neck.
 
Do we really make sacrifices?
Either 401ks or contributing to life's vices.
Hypocrites with fat pockets or prayers for wealth,
Is it God or co-payments that give us health?
 
Currency by weight was the testament of old,
Asses, land, and oils replaced with silver and gold.
Digging in the grasses, you'll always find false prophecy
Mailing 200.00 weekly, with hopes of a new democracy.
 
In the end, we worship what doesn't even exist,
Just numbers on a screen or green papers in a tight fist.
What's cash without "the man" telling us our worth?
What's life without the Lord getting us through birth?
 
Stand strong and place monetary value where it is due,
Listening to what's above... Not that distorted view.
Short-changed and cheated, an economy failed...
The real Power from God is NOT for sale.

I think this poem is a great colaboration of two very talented writers. Not only is the message powerful and insightful; but it's just as deep and factual. You both did an excellent job and the above stanza really brought this piece home! Superb write!

In all reality the place to be is to sell your soul to the devil for a dollar bill. To give your all n all for happiness that you will never find. Pain is just a place without tears to cry. The heart break of no cash to get pass. There has to be a better way to enjoy the words of your poem. So nice so true so beautiful that this is you.

Incredible! Your words are very creative and original. Something not only me, but a lot of people(I think) should hear. You're one of my favorite artist here and this piece is an example of why. Keep that pen moving, and I'm snapping my fingers violently!
