You work all day to pay for what?
So you can grow old, play golf and putt?
Or travel the globe, packing in all the sights
To fill your days, just flying kites?
You turn to alcohol and pills, to numb your mind
Life passes you by, while you waste time
With empty pleasures, extra big size
they don’t challenge, or make you wise
Instead why not work to give back, whats been given to you
And you will build, a life that’s fulfilling and true
It will drive you to learn, develop and grow,
So you can help others, even those you don’t know
So as you grow older, remember the fate
of empty pleasures, don’t fall for the bate
Instead work to give back to all of mankind
To the planet and those who will challenge your mind.
And at your funeral they’ll write, in your eulogy book
You gave more to the world, than you ever took
You made life better, for the next coming along
You were a friend who was kind, honest and strong.
