A Humble Man's Heart

Sat, 01/17/2015 - 19:54 -- ryanok


After 23 years, the eyes seen so much,

trying to keep up in life, but its always in a rush.

High School flew by, Undergrad did too,

struggling to get by, while my bank account gave me the blues.

You' re on the correct path, every one does say,

doing the right thing, isn't easy these days.

Parents provided, even with no shelter, no home,

Family of 5, together, never feeling alone.

Education is key, go get your Masters,

time runs out quick, but money sprints faster.

Keep straight, don't turn to the easy buck,

praying to God, that I might find some luck.

Life can be sweet, but often most times are bitter

but always keeping a smile,

this is Ryan, with no filter.
