The Power Of Money

               The Power Of Money
                    
Money is the common currency that we all use
to purchase goods, helping our lives to be more
fulfilling, but over the years money has become
a lot more to certain business people who tend
to make money a god, they worship over everything
 
else, their wealth has become paramount even to
the fact they will destroy people's lives, making it
impossible to survive in this world of turmoil.
They will start wars if there is a profit to be made
and governments always want money from taxpayers
 
around the world, creating taxes that have no real
meaning but an excuse to obtain money from all.
Money as we know it seems to have lost it's value
and will not buy very much these days, creating a
breakdown in our lifestyles and causing, depression
 
poverty and death through suicide, because the 
poor people cannot accept life anymore. The world
seems hell bent on the need for greed, rather than a
fairer society, it is all controlled by the power of money.

    Oh I have said the same many times. It really is terrible that we live in such a place where money trumps all. Where people will happily ruin other people's lives just to make a buck.
