Some say I’m wasting my bachelor’s degree
But they didn’t think of what happened to me.
Those jobs that had additional this and that,
Tire me out, don’t ask why I never get fat.
Suddenly the blessing of work becomes a curse to me,
I kept looking forward to retirement but I’m only twenty-three.
If only I stayed in the age below ten
Maybe my better days would keep me then.
I miss the days I was spoiled with riches
But now that wealth has turned to ashes.
I miss the days there was nothing to dread
And only joyful thoughts filled my head.
Ranting and sulking, I always feel like a failure.
But still I keep gaining confidence in my savior.
I’ll keep holding on, even though life brings me sorrow.
After all, God’s the one in-charge of my tomorrow.
