I may lack the skills to get a good one,
but I know I don’t want a bad one.
I am inclined to always want more,
but there is happiness in having just enough.
something I’m told to make, save, or spend,
but time is an illusion, there to help me move about this world.
something I often think I need to find or give,
but love is an action I do for myself and others.
Act with love,
mark your time,
enjoy the money you have,
and learn enough to do a good job.
