The Money Trail

Author:

Everyone's Story

Here it is 2020

The time is now

New Years Eve

Another bank robbery

Nothing new or is it?

Money starts showing up in the strangest places

In the hands of many people

The police are on the hunt

Each episode gives another description of the robbery

Each episode also gives a story of people who receive money

What are they thinking?

What will they do?

Are these honest good people down on their luck?

Then again is it the luckiest day of their life

Their feelings and emotions

What leads do the police have?

What is at stake?

More questions than answers

A billion dollars used for right or all the wrong reasons

Time will tell

Sometimes familiar people return

Are they the bank robbers?

Would you be one?

There is never a perfect anything in this world

How about a foiled robbery that goes good

Who got the money?

Why are they doing good?

A modern-day Robin Hood

Yesterdays Fool

A poet who tells the story

In such an odd way

Is there a connection

Is there a story within a story

When was the beginning or are we at the end

The average man lives to be 72 to a woman 75 years

Globally worldwide

So as each day unfolds

The older we get

One day we will not be here

So how does more money appear?

What would you do if you suddenly got 10,000 in the mail?

In a cat litter bag

Would you invest it wisely?

Save it for a rainy day?

Spend some save some?

Give half away as the note requests

If you found a hundred thousand at the beach

What amount of money would make you happy?

Is there enough money in the world?

If you do what the note says

There is still plenty more where that came from

What goes around comes around

Is it dirty money?

Can good come from bad?

Only time will tell

Thanks for reading

May all your dreams come true

In reality

Maybe in your mind

Is just good enough

Brenda Arledge There are so many thoughts that go running through our heads. The good and bad. Remember it wasn't long ago we had nothing and now we have a chance to make a real difference in our lives and in others. Is it too much too quick that will make us foolish? Will we be smart and do the right thing. Years later will we wonder were we better off without the money, to begin with. Thank you for reading and giving all your wonderful insights. Life is fun. Dreaming is fun. With or without money is my secret.

Kari Poulsen Money makes people do crazy things. It can be used for so many good uses. It can also drive people to be greedy and selfish. If we had to give away half we would maybe appreciate what we have and at the same time find someone else that may need some money to make their dreams come true. Thank you for reading and sharing. If you have little money you have plenty of time to give it a lot of thought. Then one day, if you come into more your attitude, may be so different.

I think the first thing I would do is praise the Lord. You ask a good question about giving half away. How much would it take to be easy to give away? How much would satisfy us. I hope you are having a happy day.

My reality is that if I don't make this a banner year for my writing I have better figure out other money sources. I am trying though I really am and anyone who says hey, I need this written it gets done and quickly. I hope your New Year is off to a good start

Not sure what i would do...i hope i would save some for a rainy day, but you only live once and life is short.

Interesting write.
