This Life

In this long life
We struggle to build a life
We ply our trade
We labor day and night
To build a life to call our own

Yet we forget to live that life
We leave it behind through work and labor
To take it out and look at it on the weekend
Then Monday comes and its back to work
Day after day, bills paid and rent met
But life is never lived, only tasted

Though bills must be paid
And responsibility handled
I will take a moment
And live this life I have made
To be more than a human machine
