Loving your job
Isn't so simple.
Especially in this culture
Where we're taught to just sell out
Our gifts and our talents.
Quick choose: money or passion.
They don't always go hand in hand,
When lending a hand to the needy
Could mean leaving you hungry
We are not rewarded for uplifting
Or bringing good to our people.
Though others get paid take away,
make thieves out of people.
The starving, the homeless,
The poor and down-trodden
Seek only to live in a world
Where they're forgotten.
Or much more ignored
And pushed to the brink
Of despair and insanity.
Wouldn't we think
With a little compassion,
And a little love we could all be working
at a job that we love.
