Sometimes I wish I wasn't so ambicious
Why couldn't I have been satisfied
with the first job I had?
Did it really help my pocket book
when I acquired all of these student loans?
Do I get where I need to go
any quicker in my seven year car note?
Wouldn't it have been so much easier
to live off government assistance?
...The answer to these questions is--no satisfaction.
I'm not built to just settle for what's handed to me.
I wouldn't be happy with mininum wages.
The more education I receive
the better the opportunities.
I can't help but to want more out of life
than a next to nothing piece of paper
Because I come from people that had nothing.
...No car, no education, no job, no satisfaction.

To need assistance is not a good thing, but a blessing to those in times of need, and yet a crutch to those whom are lazy with entitlements to society as they abuse the systems. I was elated when public welfare assistant programs placed a time limit on the monthly "check" whether it be poverty, unemployment or just laziness...Grabbing hold of life as you have is empowering & yes very satisfying as you reel in the sustenance of achieving goals...
Knowing Pride of Achievements Is A Grand feeling!
Kudos for getting out of the cycle of being shuffled around & standing up to stand for your aspirations & beliefs!!
Much Love & Continued Inspirations
