Nothing in this big world is free of charge,
We need to earn our rights and fight for cause,
In every situation, small or large,
Whether it’s personal or by the laws.

To achieve paramount accomplishment,
We must work hard with a purpose in mind,
And put in extra hours others won’t,
To be the epitome of mankind.

After what seemed like an eternity,
Come rewards of incredulous value,
Like the pride of completing your duty,
Ready for the next challenge to pursue.

Everyone should live e’er day with a plan,
Because the time is short within in life’s span.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem out of respect for the people who work hard instead of looking for the shortcut, it is also a habitat I praise and follow.
