Right to live

Right to live,
need to sell,
need for income.

We all need income,
life on earth depends on income,
independency comes from income.

What do we want?
Independency from work?
Well, we should.

Do you see it?

I have the right to live,
I need income for that,
I need to have the money to pay.

So I depend on money,
that is sad, not what I chose,
I say I should be free.

Of must, of obligation, of any chain.
Why not live freely, by nature?
That would be better!

It is a shame, of the modern world,
that still I am bound to be a slave,
to work, and work and never breathe.

It is only through my art and through my books,
that I could open the gates to heaven, the freedom
to live from an income, paid by fans who love my books.

What is greater? Pay for generic work, or pay for loved books?
It’s loved books, for sure, your love feeds me money, thanks.
You grant me life, you let me live and breate and thrive.

This path I had to carve by myself, for me, yes
it wasn’t provided for me at all by you the world, that sucks
Why am I forced to be a slave? That’s shit!
