I am an Entrepreneur (Poetry)

I am an Entrepreneur,
When I step in my home, my top button’s undone and my feet are sore.

I work so many hours my kids don’t know who I am anymore,
I work so late on Sundays my wife has to tell me the Sunday night NFL score.

I don’t remember how it feels to work a normal nine to five,
And I’ll never go back to that life because what I do makes me feel alive.

I am an Entrepreneur,
When I step in my home, my top button’s undone and my feet are sore.

Some people think that I am a just a stupid risk taker,
Truth is I am a risk migrator, growth agitator, and success motivator.

People call me a hustler, and that’s what I am,
But I hustle for me while you hustle for Uncle Sam.

I am an Entrepreneur,
When I step in my home, my top button’s undone and my feet are sore.

People keep thinking my business is a get rich quick scheme,
Yet what I am creating is what I see as the American dream.

I don’t do this for the money, the power, and the flexibility,
I started out broke, a no body, with no time management capability.

I am an Entrepreneur,
When I step in my home, my top button’s undone and my feet are sore.

I can’t sleep because of all of the ideas running through my head,
I stay up researching business while my wife tells me to come to bed.

Some say my life is easy, some say that I am set in my ways,
If you’ve never been in my position, you’ve never heard of black days.

Everyone has their own opinions when they’re looking from the outside in,
But when I meet a fellow Entrepreneur, we know how it is to smile and grin.

Through the good times and bad times, we’ll keep pressing on to raise the bar,
While the outsiders look up thinking, “It must be easy to be who you are!”

I AM AN ENTREPRENEUR!!!
