It”s not just money…

Tanaya Singh:

I got up this morning and I felt so free….

Last night I thought that the world was scarred,

the things they said seemed so real to me.

Nobody’s wrong; all of us flow with the lee.

In spite of the phrase that has all of us tagged,

I got up this morning and I felt so free.

“Be rich or die trying” is the phrase for me and thee

but it’s not just money that needs to be bagged.

The things they said seemed so real to me.

With the hope of earning a pal over a cup of tea

and the desire of fulfilling the dreams I once had

I got up this morning and I felt so free

Try being rich with honour and love, you see….

money will definitely be there if you want it so bad.

The things they said seemed so real to me

Initially I feared that gold was the only key.

Later I realised; there are a many other richer things to be had.

I got up this morning and I felt so free,

the things they said seemed so real to me.

P.S.:- this is a form of poetry called VILLANELLE

A Villanelle is a nineteen-line poem consisting of a very specific rhyming scheme: aba aba aba aba aba abaa.

The first and the third lines in the first stanza are repeated in alternating order throughout the poem, and appear together in the last two lines.
