HARD WORK They say that hard work will not kill you, just tell that to our ancestors who worked hard all their lives. Believing in the great lie, fed to them by those in charge, that hard work will not kill you. While they reaped all the benefits of their workers hard work, the rich and the powerful only got richer by their hard work of lies plundering and raping of poor countries resources and their people. then they passed their cunning ways unto their children, that continue the practice of their ancestors, to keep the rich, richer and the poor, poorer and those in the middle fighting with each other. For sure "Hard work will kill you" that is why the people at the top truly believe in a trickle down affects, knowing that it does not work, keeping the people fighting with each other. people with a sense of reason do not mind hard work, if they are paid a fare and living wage for their hard work Most people want the same things for their families a place to call their own were as the rich stands in their towers, looking over the people planning their next move wanting more. how much is enough, they are never satisfied, forever wondering the world for their next high " No woman, no man children or love can provide" Were as the poor man looks over his fields and his family and says, "How blessed I am" Hard work to put food on the table, a roof over your family's head gives you a a sense of wellbeing, that no amount of plundering and looking for the next high can give you. That is when hard work works In ending, I have travel many countries in this world, and have come in contact with many people from all status of life, and if I am truly honest with myself as I try to be while travelling on life's journey, all the above can apply to both rich and poor. Life is simple we humans make it so difficult for each other just to survive
