Theme: Money

Sweeter than honey but also dangerous than atomic bomb, Aromatic than pishori rice, Sometimes stinks more than unbathed menses, Can take you to hell and heaven too.

Welcome to my world where being chase money, A generation that wear sewed money cloth, Walking on carpet filled with money, They want to smell, taste and hear money.

Without money you will forever remain single, Money is on top list of ignorant ladies, They demand what they can't afford in their porch, How can you demand something you don't have?

Money is like a beautiful flower, Can refresh your breath at the same time intoxicate you, Many have drowned while chasing for money, Many have forever remain unhappy even with money.

Listen my dear hottest girl in town, Spoiling with money won't make you happy, Rather work hard and get what is genuinely yours, If you are rude and disrespectful, money won't mend your marriage.

Many have forgotten their Creator, And started worshipping money, Remember you won't carry them to your grave, Because you didn't come with any penny.

Dear Atim,
Money definitely stirs a passion in your message. There is a love/hate relationship. Money has been given absolute power, for better and for worse. The one who holds it, or needs it creates the relationships with it, which is basically everyone. Money does not do any of it. People create its power. People create its outcomes. Without hard currency, it would be barter for something else. Same scenarios would exist. I believe that mankind has to work on its relationship with itself. Mankind has to evolve to not need this form of exchange. Mankind must learn to give, without reward in return. And erase the distinction between the haves and the have nots. Therefore, there will be no lack. Can you even imagine such a world? Money is the reward and the lack that we have created...which is the power it has.
Hugs...JoMarie

Dear Atim,
They say that money makes the world go round. In times like this, even those with a lot of money were infected by the virus and unable to recover. Worse for those without money who cannot afford to seek healthcare. While money is important, earning a lot of money should never be the reason or purpose of our human existence. What good is having money when you have no peace of mind because of fear of being robbed or attacked by thieves. The love of money has caused many politicians to steal from the public coffers. It has also torn families apart.

Money is not the problem. It is the love of money which is the problem. Right?

Thanks Atim for this post.
Take care.

Hello dear
The love of money is the route to evil, yet money is more important to us!
There are things we can't do without money
