Let’s Talk About Price

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/price/

You want to talk about price?

Let us talk about price.

Let us talk about money.

Let us talk about money in our hands.

Or not in our hands.

Money in our bank accounts.

Or not in our bank accounts.

Let us talk about credit cards.

Let us talk about check books.

Let us talk about cash.

Let us talk about coins.

About plastic.

About pieces of paper.

About flattened metal.

For that is all we know.

All we know is price.

When we make a friend we ask,

How much will it cost?

When we think of our futures we think,

How much will I make?

When we look back on our lives we remember,

How can I get more?

That’s what price does to us.

Instead of talking about the content of our pockets,

Let us talk about the content of our soul.

Let us talk about the content of our character.

Of our mind.

Of our lives.

Let us talk about freedom.

That thing we have fought so hard for.

Let us to about how we sell our being.

Let us talk about how price shouldn’t be mistaken for freedom,

liberty,

justice,

happiness.

Let us talk about how price shouldn’t be mistaken for personality.
