What is life

Life is work and nothing of what you make it. 
You must learn to be honest and never fake it. 
You take out of life what you put into it. 
We heard this before and don’t do anything. 
But complain about what the world didn’t bring. 
Us for our challenges and because we a little selfish. 
All we have is ourselves, so why be selfless. 
To the world we should be, what we are. 
Congruent sincerity expressed and we will go far. 
In life because we know what it is. 
Life is life and not what it should be. 
It is a noun with struggles we don’t want to see. 
So don’t be delusional and lie to the mirror. 
The definition of life can’t get any clearer.
