Pain Wrote A Note I Had To Quote

I am the custodian of your 
golden grain,
without me everyone's life 
will be in vain.
You have me in full me 
during child labour,
but alas, you take delivery 
of a favour!

I come for a season and I 
have a reason,
wisdom makes you learn 
from me a lesson.
You can't escape me when 
I come closer...
But it is your choice to be a 
learner or a loser.

The feeble minded hold 
unto me and frown,
the strong let go the cross 
and get the crown.
You can contact me from 
friends and foes
I stay longer if you pay 
focus on life's woes.

Do not make out with me 
or I will marry you,
I am just a passer-by... with 
a timely glue.
You can't hide but you can 
run for your life,
it's your choice to stay in 
sorrows and strife.

I am that crazy guest that 
likes to stay longer,
...that lousy pest, always 
growing stronger
sell yourself to me, I will 
make you cheaper,
do not swim in me, or you 
will go...deeper.
