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.

I have always said that my poetry and short stories write themselves, I'm just the hand that holds the pen. Several of my poems have been published in local publications and in the 2011 World Poetry Movement book 'Stars in our Hearts'. Please enjoy the words, but do not steal them. I enjoy living and what life brings my way. My day job, I'm a geekgirl, a programmer. Coding is like using clues to solve a mystery to me. But, my happiness outside of the day job involves, cooking, baking, knitting, crocheting, writing, hiking, primitive skills. Yup, I come home and unplug. So there are many sides of me here. Enjoy.
