Working Class Hero [final]

A working class hero is something to be,

And you think you're so clever and classless and free,
It is an unfortunate perception that we believe we are separate from one another. That we do not affect and infect one another with ideas, words and actions. Ideas are continuously forming and changing and growing. The search for the answer is the answer. The search will always be there. An answer leads to more questions.

But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see,

There's room at the top they are telling you still,
Can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this. Yet the path to true success is never defined or told to anyone so that they may follow it, get ahead and achieve financial freedom (though success is measured individually). The general maxim is to just work hard and you will get ahead. I’ve watched people work until their hands bleed, involved in work they’ve done for years and they are not management, middle management, on the leadership fast track.
But that carrot placed in front of you that you can attain a higher station is always there. It makes you work harder.

But first you must learn how to smile as you kill,
You must betray and sacrifice. If you can do those two things you will rise. Be ruthless and more than practical. Make business decisions without emotion and regard.
The alternative is to work with people who share your values with business acumen and enjoy what you do, working to-wards bettering the world around you.

A working class hero is something to be.

    A little piece of shear genius in that one man. Applause in order, standing ovation for each entry. -A sharp observation of what has been and still is; all of it all too true.

    Finding peace is about making decisions without emotion...

    Growing up becomes synonymous with heartlessness...

    Wonderfully written, sharp as ever I see...
    How've you been?

    Hello Lady Writer:

    The decisions of adulthood and its implications seem to take their toll if we let them.

    You have me at somewhat of a disadvantage. Have we met before??

    Honestly, fuck their carrot, go plant your own carrot. Besides, the carrots all rot at some point, and if you have betrayed yourself and sacrificed your life and loved ones....all you are left with is a tainted carrot.
