Lesson in Life

Lesson #1 in Life
Kay Rice

I look around with weary eyes.
A society new with blurred lines.
Hands out, mouths open, no thought.
Privileges are not free but are fought.

Entitlement runs wild among the masses,
Disillusionment among soulless faces.
Believing they are owed a luxury as a right,
Forgetting everything else in sight.

So you want that fancy car?
So you want to travel far?
So you want to look like a star?
Its time thank you work to raise the bar.

It’s called work and pride with sweat.
It’s called making sure goals are met.
It’s called Work, baby,
Nothing in this world is free.
