Money gets us through life,
Without it we wouldn't survive.
I often ask the question,
Why do we need to pay for our everyday needs?
Food and clothing and shelter,
Not everyone can afford it.
Love, hate, life, death,
Not everyone is willing to pay.
But the things we need most in life,
We cannot buy.
Happiness, family, friends, hope,
Those are all priceless.
We can't buy happiness,
But we can buy books.
Aren't those the same thing?
