Money – A Necessity Of Life

Money is an item that can buy us things that help u live our lives;
Whether it is food, clothes or a ring for the brand new wife.
It can be gained one second, and lost so easily the next;
Whether it is the cash that is in your bank, or that priceless cheque.

Money can be exchanged so you can change it and spend it around the world;
And we find out the good and bad things about money as problems begin to unfurl.
It helps us provides for our families and ourselves;
And pay for jobs to be done like getting a car washed or giving your house a few amends.

Although money can help us, it can also cause stress and greed;
Whether you get too much and are careless or you are in debt and in desperate need.
You can get buried in bills with careless spending or not having enough money;
Meaning you couldn’t be very responsible, or just very unlucky!

Money is a necessity of life that we all need, no matter who we are;
Whether it is to spend it on a mortgage or simply spending at a snack bar.
Money can be a solution or a problem, depending on your life situation,
Although it is nice to spend a bit of extra money for your summer vacation!

Birthdays are that one special day just for you
Everyone is focused on you all day through
You get so many presents and good wishes from friends and family
Your head is spinning with happiness; you feel like you’re in fantasy

You get so many phone calls that say
“Oh it’s your special day! Happy Birthday!”
You blow out the candles on your cake and make a wish
And you find you are still smiling long after the party is done

You open the presents and joy fills your heart
For the rest of the day that feeling of love will not depart
Then you say goodbye to everyone you’ve seen
And sigh to yourself, what a great day it’s been!

Counting the last minutes down, you feel that final buzz
And you feel amazing, you don’t know why, It’s just because
You go off to bed and smile to yourself
And hear the seconds hand from the clock on the shelf

Three… two… one…
The day is finally done.
What a Happy Birthday this has been!
