Poem Duet (A conversation about money)

David’s Verse:

Money creates the most stress in life.
Currency is needed to stay current
because of lack of funds
have the power to make your character old fashion.
Goals to achieve in life is a huge attraction
like NYC skyscrapers and a Garden City mansion“.

 

Tiffanee’s Verse:

Money forces reality to hit as the real status of the bank account sits.
Seeing the paycheck received lights up every twinkle in your eye. But the responsibility coming your way there’s no choice but, to kiss it goodbye.
The rent is due, groceries need to be bought, that car you drive every day needs to be paid. $500 to your name and you forgot about the dinner plans you made with your friend that day.

Dreams of a comfortable life: roof over your head, food to eat, job you like.
Sometimes money problems cause a lot of strife in life.
You worry you can’t maintain the old life you once lived, the new things going on changes you.
You realize really quick that you ain’t no fool.
You wisen up on how to save, all those money decisions you used to make aren’t necessarily craved.

Money can be the root of all evil but, if used wisely maybe it can be for good.
Tight binds, scheduled payments it can keep you on track. Life will always have it’s challenges but, at least managing money will prepare you for that.”

 

David’s Verse:

“Money changes character
like a leaf that can change a color.
Personalities become foul like a strong odor
from the zoo.
Money is the root of all evil, this is old news.
Money is needed to build more churches and better schools,
but it’s spend in the hood buying weed to look cool.
Never a balance, the broke has low self esteem,
the rich is arrogant.
Almost impossible to find that perfect balance.
How do you find the right amount of confidence?
There is a science to this madness called crime.
Lack of currency, scrilla, paper, or however you wanna phrase it, increases the murder rate.
But an abundance of this material that cause evil
have the ability to not only change personality, but to change physical shape of our bodies.
Asses and breast pop up like pop ups on computer screens.
Tattoos and piercings cover our bodies,
rappers in unison in public have the environment looking like a prison yard.
Life is always hard, but remember money make people appear out of nowhere like magic.
People will begin to follow and stalk on you, you are a target and your followers are on stealth mode.
Compliments, hugs and kisses don’t mean shit, when money is in your pocket.
This is a cold world when pocket full of money, so keep a gun nearby and keep it off safety.”
