Greed

September 8, 2008

Time is power,
Money is key,
Together they make,
The universe we live and breath,
Showing the great,
Showing the loss,
Making us feel,
The damage caused,
It is corrupt,
The way we live,
Only greed is our life,
And we never give,
Today is bad,
Tomorrow is worse,
Next week is death,
And next time no more,
For we will not,
Speak no more,
For which comes in our mouth,
Are curses of such,
We will cry for the death.
If we are free,
We will stay silent,
We murder,
If we have greed,
Almost like devils,
In the living world,
Spread unhappiness,
To children and more,
The angels they take,
There vows to us,
To protect life,
From the devils about,
Which is worse?
Life or death,
We don’t know,
Because we will never rest,
Morning rise the battle spreads,
The angel and devil,
Come close as thin as a thread,
Why oh why,
Do we live this way?
How come there’s fighting
Everyday,
For what it’s worth,
It’s too little,
Since there is no freedom,
In this world alone,
Everyone is gone,
They flee, they flee,
But they will be captured,
Since I say to thee,
Today is bad,
Tomorrow is worse,
Next week is death,
And next time no more,
For we will not,
Speak no more,
For which comes in our mouth,
Are curses of such,
We will cry for the death.
If we are free,
We will stay silent,
And murder,
If we have greed.

I think that this piece signifies as a place in time where people have no care for others. I think that right now, greed is progressing further and we might get punishment later on.
