How can a piece of paper,
much like the one I am writing this on,
Be so important?

Stamped with words and symbols.

How can a piece of paper,
Be the cause of conflicts?
The cause of starvation?
The cause of pollution?

How can a piece of paper,
Define who people are and how they live?

How can a piece of paper,
Be equal to all of the things it is?

How can this small piece of paper,
Be the reason why the world is falling?

People crying, dying, lying!

What is so important about this paper,
That a life created by God,
Will no longer be as important?
All because the paper,
made that life, a life with struggles and a life with no love.

What a Destructive Paper.

The paper that is being refered to in this is money. I hope people will understand that money is an item, items are not necessary for happiness.
