The Bank Of ME

Piggy Bank



In life you live within your means
You save to manage all your dreams
Paying back any debts you owe
Trying to keep your spending low

Then life hits us with ME
It sets our fogged minds racing
How to cope, our only hope
To save our strength through pacing

Can’t keep going to the energy bank
I’m often in debit, I’ll be frank
Keep withdrawing
Not putting back
A major discipline I lack

Spending energy like I have it
Has become a really stupid habit
Going into debt, addicted to doing
Actions I shouldn’t be pursuing

There’s a dwindling amount
In my account
Not as much as before
It takes little action
A minor transaction
To knock me to the floor

Trying to always do things right
Wanting to be all things
By meeting friends, being social
All this comes with strings

I have to change, to rearrange
The way I live my life
To be much wiser
Use energy like a miser
To save me this ongoing strife

So I’ll save for the future
With nothing on credit
All safe in the bank to be sure
If anything’s spent, I’ll spread it
Keeping those spoons secure

With pacing our only way to save
We’ll never get too rich
But maybe it’s the way to go
As we all know that payback’s a b***h…..
