Debt [Original Poem]
Staying away from crippling debt is about one of the most important things you can do in your life.
If your television and sofa are trash
They will still be better than any new set
Unless you pay fully in cash.
Don't go buying larger, donate to goodwill.
A big house unpaid for in all kinds of weather
Just ends up sending your warm heart a chill.
If the fashions have changed since last season,
A new wardrobe will cost you a mint.
Rock that style instead of buying a look for no reason.
In expensive clothes if you know you’re in debt.
You might get some compliments from those that you meet,
But will you still feel good when they’re not paid for yet?
Something nice as you roll down the pavement.
But I know that your paycheck won't go as far
Once you notice that high monthly payment.
But I know some of you doubt it.
Listen to me steemit hear what I tell you.
I have lived it and know all about it.
Spend your pounds and dollars are you please,
But always remember those in debt have to pay.
Servants of their boss, their jobs - never at ease.
Its links all corrosion and rust.
Call it what you will – it’s the furthest from gold.
For a better life, cast it aside in disgust.
Though their heart may be honest and true.
Can they hold up their head and look brave,
When a bill they can’t pay comes due?
It will just fill your life with sorrow.
When your landlord knocks at the door
Stating you’ll be evicted tomorrow.
