How much

Will money set me free, or just imprison me even more

will I give more, or just take more for myself, spend more, buy more

how much do I need to live happily, how much do I need to have

the twilight breaks and there is no change in my soul, only more in my pocket, weighing me down, in my pocket

thinking that this will help others, that this will help my future, my family, but if I cannot get over myself, how will having more help solve anything, the likelihood being that it will only make it worse

we say money isn’t everything, and yet we treat it as it is so

without it we are hungry, malnourished, exposed, homeless…

since when did earth itself not become our home

rather these boxes of more

how much, how much, how much more do you need
