I am but a piece of paper.
I am used for homes and cars,
for bills and food,
for Churches and for illegal activity.
I control your stress and often your sanity.
I make some happy while making others miserable.
I provide you with security or uncertainty.
I leave you feeling successful or unfortunate.
Perhaps some would say I am the root of all evil,
or possibly the root of all joy.
You'll never know how much you need me,
until I disappear.
You will work for me your entire life,
only to find I will not provide for you until the end.
I do not care if you are young or old,
if you are hungry or tired,
if you are single or married with children.
I am indifferent to those who touch me,
for I serve but one purpose;
To keep you wanting more.
