Money Is Not Everything!

Time is money,

Money is power.

Is it true?

Maybe yes,

Money can buy your a house brand-new !

May be No, because you can tell

Power can not measure the seeds you sow.

Time is precious,

Money is not everything.

It is costly to be pure money driven,

Because the credit of your performances

For your time on earth

Is the caring nature you spared

Before your physical death.

  1. Whoa — just beautiful in all respects. Many great lines. I shall choose to highlight “It is costly to be pure money driven,” That is so a fact.

    Lovely!

    I’d say fame would be on my top of those 5 to choose from. What can I say? I’m shallow that way. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Wow, Jannie:

      You are soooooooo close to me, I mean I am impressed about your quick reaction to my post.

      You Got Everything Because along with fame, money and fortune plus power will come along the way…

      I choose what you choose. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Outstanding Response, Jannie. ๐Ÿ™‚ :).

  2. No, money is certainly not everything. When it does become everything, it becomes powerful and overwhelming — usually not in a good way.

    Happy day to you!

  3. hello Ji lol thanks for the explanation re your sex lol, it makes no difference except me saying he/she lol, this was superb, this was something close to me, I dont like greed, I dont like materialistic people excellent post..

    1. Hi,

      Thank you for being a superb gentleman, you never wear glasses and soooo far-sighted, I like you as a blogging buddy
      very much. :).

      Take good care.

  4. Okay Jingle’s I see!!! Your post is so on time “Money” is not everything,for while it can buy many things.It cannot purchase things that will last longer than life.Have a good evening and I’ll keep checking in.

  5. Money isn’t everything. It can’t buy you happiness but I imagine it can make the sad times easier to bear. I’d rather be unhappy and have money than unhappy and not have money. It brings with it a certain amount of personal freedom. It’s not the money, it’s how money can change your life.

    1. Hello, Paul Andrew:

      Of course, if people are starving and could not fill their stomach, money can buy food to keep them alive….I used to think your way of thinking, it is still true …

      I enjoy your answer. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. If love were on that list I would choose that but since it isn’t, I will choose power. One can change the world with power. As for money not being important, all the people I owe money to think it’s important! lol Seriously, I have been quite destitute in my life, living on the street, sleeping on a bench at a bus station and to me at the time, it was pretty important. It is the oil for the machine that runs this world and people who are poor, are also powerless and therefore suffer and die. Money is a physical representation of power.

    1. Hello, Val:

      Yes, I agree with you.
      From my own experiences, I came from poor family background, I know how hard it is to be powerless because you don’t have money to afford better car …to get out of poverty, one needs to educate oneself, I mean in America, public education is free for 12 years, why not educate oneself and get a job?

      One must have the willingness to work and study hard to live a fulfilling life. My happiness is always from my own efforts.

      Great point of view, Val.
      It makes me think about relevant stuff more…

    1. Hello, Amy:

      Do you think that every single person around the world will be happy after each has enough money to buy food, shelter, and clothes?

      Your wish is great and offers hope to those who are in desperate situation…Human beings are bizarre creatures, we always hunger for more…

      Think about blogging, we need something beyond materials, agree?

    1. Thanks, Sheila.

      I love money if it is from my own hard work…
      I enjoy a meal if I believe that I deserve it…

      Thank you for the kind visit. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Jingle,
    You visited me and I returned your visit here. Please read the poem I left in my comment about not being good at poetry OR I would join you. I am already committed on Thursdays as well.
    Sorry for the confusion – you should remove my name.
    Thanks.

    1. Dear Carletta:

      It is my fault. You said that you will definitely participate, I took it as that you want to post a poem so that people visit your blog and comment on it on behalf of you…

      I did not mean to request you return favor to me…I never follow people with whom I have commented with…I reminded you because I thought that you are doing poem…misunderstanding…

      Please relax and feel free to do what’s in your mind.

      Thank you for the clarification. Apology for the uneasiness I may have caused in you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Money is not everything but everything needs money except sunshine & air at the moment. I love money as it provide food on the table. It’s the good servant but a bad master kinda thing, depending on who is in control.

  9. Yes Jingle. Money is not everything. Sure we need money to buy our needs and occasional wants, but it shouldn’t be the center of our universe, the reason for our existence.

    “Money is not everything.

    It is costly to be pure money driven,

    Because the credit of your performances

    For your time on earth

    Is the caring nature you spared

    Before your physical death.”

    Yes. So true. I couldn’t agree more.

    1. Hello,

      It is so lovely to see you in ๐Ÿ™‚
      I am glad that you lie the last few lines of the poem.

      Wishing you a bright weekend.
      take good care, friend, you deserve the best. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I love what you have done with the place Jingle! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    money seems to be everything for those who have it in excess, for us who have to weigh between shoes or sweaters, we values it, but treasure more what we have.

    1. Hello, lily:

      Thank you for the sweet comments. ๐Ÿ™‚
      the FUN of blogging and the joy of new found friendship are something that has NOTHING to do with money.

      wishing you a beautiful day.

  11. Unlike to some sentiments, better informed post still bring in readers such as me. My first time here. I noticed so many intriguing ideas in your posts particularly its discussion. Such a lot of replies reveal I am not alone with this opinion
