Poetic Dan

More me today than yesterday

Money maybe emotionless
But it controls mine really well

The moment I hear about it
Every atom just vibrates in flight

To think, it makes no sense
A bit of printing does all this

If I could truly wish upon a wish
It would be for my print to do this

Change the emotions
Make the world go round
Show I am successful
Or giving life to a sound


Most of all show
Money is the problem
Not the solution
Just making it worse

I could do this or that
Reality is just becoming
paper and loopholes
We degrade all in this world
To nothing more than tit for tat

I've had enough of justifying myself
I take no more than I need
I give all that's available to give
I no longer fear what you'll do to me


While I try to change my tune of life
Others hear the old or what they want
Never knowing the truth of who we are

All loving compassionate creatures
Without the desire for greed or gold

    In a perfect world yes. You summed up money quite nicely.

      I am slowly creating that world for myself! sadly I'll not have the full freedom till my kids are older enough, that me and their mother don't have the need for printing debate!

      Being a child of the 50's and 60's, your poem brought up memories of the Hippie movement, love is everything, living off the land. A time when the worth of a man was measured not in pieces of silver, but in love and hard labor.

        Great to hear the words of the energy you project my friend. Time goes in cycles but never the same, so I thank that generation for kicking this off!

          I pride myself in those last to words of yours

          First, excellent title, Dan.

          The unfortunate reality of this world, is that "cash is king" the cash = paper, a worthless piece of paper at that. It causes stress, depression, & many other terrible things. This is caused by the banks, in an effort to control everyone, debt = slavery. So long as everyone keeps their eyes on celebrities, social, media, and keeping up with the jones's (so to speak) things won't change. Many of us don't know who we are partially due to the fact that our pineal glands are blocked. No thanks to toxic water, air, food, and energy!

          Phew sorry for my ranting!

          Thank you for posting this piece, Dan. You touched on a very important subject, money is the problem, but it stems out from there!

          Always stay true to YOU, my friend!

              Love reading the replies, I could think of some many words to give back but if there is one thing I'm learning from OB is to stop. Just give the facts, you're all awesome as f#*k

              Man was free
              He made money
              Now he's a slave

              An old scribe of mine. Nice one. May I call it a release write?

              • Poetic Dan

                Slave to himself
                Himself he has lost
                Forgetting all that was

                I never know what to call anything, I just do what I do ;)

                • Diamond

                  Release writing, because...restating the existing thing is contrary to creating a new thing. I make a bold statement I see. Hope you get my words.

                  *hugs, Cat

                    Dan, thanks for letting us rant all over here, you're awesome, my friend!

                    • Poetic Dan

                      Part time hero, full time legend. Attracting the same around me ;)
                      It sounds like a beautiful choir to me, no rant, just lots of passion!

                    • myself and me

                      Can not recall who wrote the line "I am so poor, the only thing left is money". On the contrast, there is a famous line in the movie "golden fiddles" went like this " we are not poor, we just don't have money".
                      Great writing.

                      • Poetic Dan

                        Very true, thanks for being in the same page. May we begin to write the new!
