The money that I could’ve earned is hard to reach,

My experience and education says I’m worth so much,

Unfortunately, an illness made it difficult to reach,

Thus, I’m not getting paid that much,

It frustrates me that more money is hard to reach.


I should be grateful that I’m getting paid,

Yet I want more,

I don’t want to settle for what I’m getting paid,

Thus, I must work so hard for more,

I must work hard because I don’t want to settle for what I’m getting paid.


Yes, I’m married to a man in the medical field,

He’ll eventually get paid more,

Yet I want my own high paying field,

I also want to earn more,

I don’t want to settle just because my husband is in a high paying field.


So what am I going to do?

I’m going to keep working hard so I can get paid more,

That’s what I’m going to do,

I’m not going to give up because I want more,

No, giving up isn’t that I’m not going to do.
