That Factor

It is amazing how much we can complain now wanting to work our way through any tough situation.

That Factor

Sometimes Its amusing to sit and hear my friends as they complain
As the increasing gas price, will bite into their pockets again
Not wanting to put aside their vehicles, not wanting to seem cheap
So spending a little bit more into that budget will creep.

Therefore as consumers we would see that great impact
There will certainly not be any salary increases, as a sort of combat
So it is the onus of each one to take a stand, make concerted effort
Making sure that what is done, the budget can support.

This will certainly increase the always escalating cost of living
But all should understand, that problem is not now starting
So therefore no matter how much is acquired or sometime promised
The sate of the cost of living, will not matched or diminished.

So stop fussing or fuming, keep that cool and work on a system
That can help you find a way to buffer this growing problem
Perhaps in someway, this could be sending out a subtle message
That one should really try to shed, some of that needless baggage.

As one expects,prices will rise adding another component to the recession
And complaining will not be any form of comfort, in such a situation
This will always be a factor that can create such a mess
And the quotient of the equation, will be that of stress.

Somehow many people seem not to be able to comprehend
That sometimes to survive, one has to sacrifice something
Look at a sinking boat many things have to be thrown overboard
Because for flotation, there have to be shedding of excess load.

Yes perhaps sometime in the future the situation may get better
But in the interim, we have to take control of sooner rather than later
We may pray ever so often and hope for some sort of divine intervention
It is always amazing, how as human being we call on him in a tight situation.

That's one major sign of being human. We call upon God in times of need and forget him in times of plenty and prosperity.

Great piece my friend. Thanks for sharing.
