Life Is Not Currency

Fun, or so you call it

Drinking silly and smoking

Going to parties days on end

This is the “cool” life you love

Popularity is all you crave

Giving more time to seeking fame

Yet there is more to life

Much more basic things you ignore

The real essence of life

Living to fulfill your purpose

You cannot spend life, it is not currency

So once depleted what’ll be left to spend?

Find your purpose and live to see it done

There are many problems on earth to solve

Quit spending life having fun and live it

To solve one problem and help someone!
