money brings headache;

i wish i could be a child again
or at least a few years younger
where i didn't know the troubles
that money could bring
or lack of.
maybe it's selfish of me
to want to forget it
but i have never felt as stressed
as i am now.
i hate the fact that money
is the central point of life
without it
we starve
with it
we cannot appreciate what we have.
having to look into the u.s. military
to fund my schooling
and alleviate the stress
of day-to-day living.
i pray for a miracle
megamillions, anyone?
not to buy the fancy house
and the sleek cars
with designer commodities.
no, to know that i have a place to live
without having to worry
if we will lose everything
we have worked so hard for.
