My Reason My Purpse

It’s the end of the month and, like always, I’m 2 or 3 hundred short.

Oh, I’ll work it out.

I’ll pick up an extra gig or two.

I’ll find something to sell or pawn.

I have good friends and I’m quick to pay them back.

Unless, of course, I’m told, “Forget it. Glad to help. Just pay it forward when you can.”

And, while I don’t forget it, I take them at their word and I don’t sweat the prompt return.

I have a family to support and, by God, beg, borrow and steal is not just a song lyric when it comes to their well being.

I will do anything for the people I love.
