Im Only In It For The Money

April 20, 2010

I've used up all my dreams and all I've got left are
washed up ambitions
kind of stuck in these
vortexes
horrible cyclones like the red storm on Jupiter
which has been turning and swirling
for a million years,
such is my life.
My dreams haunt me, because I have forsaken them.
I thought I wanted to write.
I thought I wanted to make music.
But now I'm seventeen and I just want money,
and that just seems like a bleak
existence.
Even as I write this I am thinking about
money.

The author's comments:
I hope that there are people who feel the same way about how introducing the element of money into the creative process destroys any chance of genuine creativity.
