    Charity starts at home
    Not outside
    Not where everyone can see you
    Not on the streets of Naples or Rome

    You complain you don't have time
    But if you achieved what you
    Think makes you happy
    Would friends come to your
    Rescue, and even loan you a dime

    You think "what if, what could I be"
    If I didn't not have to wake
    Up so early
    And toil for my family

    You forget what they have done
    You forget the torment they had borne
    Because they never had a golden boy
    Someone to call their son

    You forget how they appreciate
    That you make 24 hours
    Into 28

    You forget how fortunate you are
    How you must work work work hard
    In order to reach and be among the stars

    Well-meaning idiots tell you to stand back
    They tell you go get a life
    You want to tell them to run up a hill
    And jump down a pike!

    Can you get happiness in sloth
    Can you get happiness in gluttony
    Can you get happiness when you go out
    Roam like a stupid animal
    And waste, waste waste your
    Hard-earned money?

    Sometimes we look for the big picture
    We think we will be happy
    If we become like the ones we see

    But how do you know the one you see
    Is looking back at you and your life
    Green with envy?

    Oh thank you so much.
    I try my best each day
    I listen to my heart
    Rather than my brain
    For the best words
    To convey!
