It Is Time To Change Our Thinking
Years of learning the hard way
Year after year we do what is right
We were taught to earn respect and things will work their way out
To do any job to the best of your ability
Your rewards will be great
To spend time fixing things that are wrong
So you will not make the same mistakes as in the past
To shoot for the stars
But don't be surprised if you are the only one their
Be happy what you have
You really don't need more
When you work hard you earn an honest living
Take your free time to rest your mind and body
Don't forget to Love along the way
Life without love is no life to live
Dedication pays off but not as quick as you might think
People will come and go
You will meet many in your lifetime
So you don't have to carry Chip on your shoulders no more
If you make mistakes it is not the end of the world
You end up paying for it through the nose
Hopefully not in blood
When it gets dark out you should go to sleep
Unless you are in college and are studying
Because you didn't do it when you were suppose to
No use asking when you were suppose to find the time to study? You know you could of did it earlier when you were goofing off
You are not the brightest bulb on the tree
That is why this year they bought a new tree
You think you have the answers?
But all you really have is more questions
Go to work like everyone else and earn a living
Writing is something for fun but their is no money in it
You think you have troubles ?
What would you of done when it really gets tough
Like when I grew up that is when boys were men
No time to waste
Haven't you already doodled enough
If you can't make up your mind now ?
How many lifetimes do you need?
Don't feel sorry for yourself
I could of told you years ago this was going to happen
Look at the bright side
You have had it on easy street till now
Your troubles won't go away
They will just keep building till you give them to me
Once a nut always a nut
You think you have a good idea ?
Then where did you get it from ?
Nothing happens without a reason
You should of seen it coming
Didn't I teach you anything ?
You only have one life
Don't screw it up
You should of learned it in school
They just pass the kids through they don't really learn
All you have to do is figure out where you went wrong ?
Do you have the time to go back that far ?
I thought you were smarter than that
You surprised me again
Don't believe everything you hear or you will be mislead and be fooled most of the time
What goes up usually hits you in the face when you look
Here are just a few thoughts collected over the years
That nocked me for a loop
