GBE 33: Work.

Work for a living.
Work for the paycheck.

Work to pay the bills.
Work to stick to the budget.

Work at your relationship.
Work at not telling her that outfit really does make her look fat.

Work around the house.
Work to clean the toilet at least once a week.

Work at remembering to return the library books on time.
Work at remembering to call your auntie to wish her a Happy Birthday.

Work to unwind at the end of a long day
Work to rid your mind of all the unceasing worries that keep you up at night.

Work to stay clean, one day at a time.
Work at remembering why you need to stay clean, one day at a time.

Work to paste the smile on your face at a family gathering you'd rather not be at.
Work to keep from retorting back to the rude comment made at your expense.

Work to look at yourself in the mirror everyday and see a lifetime of regrets look back at you.
Work to keep plugging on and pretend that you have hope for the future.
