Whoever says that famous coined phrase
money can’t buy happiness
misses the whole point about security and sanity.
They never lost their home
They never stretch a dollar
to the point that it snaps.
They never wore shoes with holes
that filter water and cold into socks with holes.
They never had to hear from institutions
that yes, we care about your passion and your studies and your skills
but it’s really only your money that matters.
They never drink for cheap vacation.
They say the phrase
because they don’t understand all the things that happiness can’t buy.
