My Debts Up to my eyeballs in debt I sigh I moan I truly, deeply regret What I have done To myself No one else to blame Oh, the embarrassing shame! Oh, what I cannot claim Of wisdom Loud commercials Made it seem so real Oh, their endless appeal So, I got sucked in By the alluring din Of a greedy world So now I am an endless slave This I can mostly certainly say Onward I go Trying to show A new confidence I slug away Each morning, new day At the mountainous debt Trying to correct This wreck I’ve made of my life I know it will end And I will never, ever, Ever again spend Myself into this death march toward another fresh & open financial grave
Probably not such a good poem for this time of year, right before the biggest gift giving holiday, but still timely I hope. Remember it’s only one day out of the year. Remember God loves you and wants only the best for you and your family. Have a blessed and peace filled day!
