You think it matters, but most likely you're wrong.
You sweat so hard for so little and before all that long
you find out, if you're lucky, that "mine" isn't real...
you find out you have nothing that Time will not steal.
And you swell with regret for opportunity lost,
a knife in the heart for every minute it's cost
to pile up false rewards while ignoring true worth...
so many minutes you've squandered since birth.
