Poem: By the Time I'm Forty

By the time I’m forty,

I want to be financially secure.

I want my debts under control

and hefty trust funds for my children.

I want to enjoy life to the fullest

and look forward to a stress-free retirement.

I want to see the fruits of my labor

and a more accepting world

with decreased violence and inequities.

I want to live my dream instead of dreaming.
