The Value of Money!

Do you know the value of money?
To some, it could be plenty
To some, it could'nt have any!

Money comes; money goes
Today it's there; tomorrow, who knows!
You may ride the wave, or with the wind it blows!

Even with our currency
It's relative, the value of a rupee
On a trip abroad, you ought to stop converting maybe!

So, we've established, money is not stable
It can be earned, can be lost, like a turntable
Hence, you cannot depend on it; it's not reliable!

Making money is not my top priority
Although, I really relish my retail therapy
I place a premium on doing work that makes me happy

Some people say, money is not important
But, unless you have excess, it's not redundant
Empty wallets could lead to a dire consequence

Only when you've tasted your version of luxury
Fot it, you may stop being so hungry
And concentrate less on the outcome, more on the journey

To be happy, money is not compulsory
But, it takes time to get to that discovery
Hopefully by then, there'll be scope for recovery

Money can buy you proportional levels of comfort
And it's not wrong to be rewarded for your efforts
As long as you're responsible, sure, enjoy your dessert!

Among others, money can't buy you love, joy, or peace
Through deep waters, it may provide some respite and ease
At least, you won't have to worry about food and fees

It'll keep you away from poverty-driven worries
It can surely buy you comfort amidst misery
But, it cannot save you from covetousness and treachery

Money surely solves a lot of problems
      But, all problems cannot be solved with money
You could have personal, emotional, physical demons and goblins
      You can have all the bank balance in the world, and still be lonely!
