Am I ..

Verbal agreement

People enter for many reasons

People enter into an agreement for many reasons

Yet leave for better or worse

I hold the stories, greedy seasons

If someone breaks it, its usually that he is better off without it, and maybe because of his personal greed.

Sadly, I know not a verse

But I would if I'd lived as a tree

A verbal agreement is not written anywhere, thus no one can prove it even existed

OR

Am I ..

A Shredder

--EDIT--

A toilet seat, people enter for many reasons(duh!), greedy season(for sure, everyone enters for their personal greed). It' helpful, used often everyday, greed is important(why would anyone sit on it otherwise). OR Maybe its the "Iron Throne", who knows.

Because It had so many answers and was quite broad I thought I'd share my thoughts:

What I wanted to be was

A wallet

People enter for many reasons

Put money away, pay, show ID

Yet leave for better or worse

You can close your wallet with more money or less

I hold the stories, greedy seasons

Money is used in many greedy situations

Sadly, I know not a verse

It's describing the wallet, the wallet only holds the money

But I would if I'd lived as a tree

It would experience the same if it had been made into money
