Youth Dream Purchase Price Paid - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

youth dreams full of testosterone
impatience desires action completion
now now now youth is life trying

youth is working for other people
youth is working with other people
youth is learning about other people

in changing challenging life context
enjoy it or frustrated with it a lot
but at the same time youth screaming

to break out and be able to do own thing

the majority of the work force
probably feels this ghost echo
definitely crisis mix sometimes

few people get to do exactly
what they want to do
all or even most of the time

employment is necessity
unless rich financially
care free freedom independent

the less capital qualifications
the more compromise
due to lack of opportunities

working for others
is a good chance
to learn from their expertise

mistakes management
staff interaction
all necessary important

skills learn everything
you can while waiting
for your own dreams

an important
knowledge skills
career with many

interactive fields
of acquired knowledge
waits over horizons

    often hard to work for someone else's dreams at the expense of your own... however, teaches humility! (Report) Reply
