I sit here punching computer keys
each weekday from nine to five.
I’ve been doing it for nine years now
but I’d like to do more with this life.
A man’s not meant to sit and type
and shuffle papers ‘round.
Adding numbers and sorting data
while I gain another pound.
I want to create, to build, improve,
to think-up something new.
To pour myself into my work
and have it matter when I do.
I’m wasting my life here at this desk
as my time ticks away.
It’s time for me to change my course
I think I’ll start today!
