Our Friendship is Absentee

Spent a span of my life

Working for the man

Didn’t like what I became

Had to quit, so I ran

We all must work

We work to live

But when we live to work

We can no longer give

We fill the hours, days, weeks…

Consuming our time

Prioritizing our values

In a cultural paradigm

Sharing your life

With the ones you love

The most precious gift

Given to those around us

My time in this life

Should demonstrate a devotion to present

Sharing our lives together

And to this I give my consent

When we misplace our attention

When we follow this decree

We miss out on a fellowship

Our friendship is absentee

And so I speak these words

And thus I proclaim

Do not waste your time alone

Take back a life to reclaim
