Health is Wealth

I don’t have time, the lady said

To take my pills, to go to bed

To take the time I need to destress

Even though I feel such a mess

‘Cause work comes first

Without a doubt

But quite frankly I see no way out

Peddling the hamster wheel eternally

I never thought this life was for me

Things need to change

I need to get well

And extricate myself from this living hell

But proactive steps I need to take

My world may overturn

My heart may break

But now I know my health comes first

Ignoring it’s the very worst
