Stop and Smell the Roses

image I've never had a silver spoon, my spoons have always been plastic.

I've had to work most of my life, more than the rest.

While my friends went and partied, I worked.

No time for relationships, I had to work.

Even on my off days, I worked.

I worked so that my mom and I would have food in our refrigerator.

I worked so that I wouldn't be made fun of for not having name brand clothes.

I worked so much that I forgot to live. I forgot fun. So now, after my bills are paid, I smell the roses.
