Work hard, they said

Work hard, they said
Or you won’t get a job anywhere
People will laugh at you
You will have no respect

Work hard, they said
Or you’ll never succeed in life
You’d have to beg people for help
And you’d never truly be free

Work hard, they said
Or you’d have to struggle a lot
It won’t be easy for you
The difficulties will carve you a way

Work hard, they said
And then you can play in peace
If you enjoy now
You will repent it later on

Work hard, they said
And then you can take a break
Then work hard again until you’re tired
But you’re not allowed to take a break again

Work hard, that’s what I did
I worked hard all day and all night
What I got was not what I expected though
A life that I never truly lived

    It is a sad reality. We spend our days working, while life passes us by.

      But then again, we have no choice really.
