They say

They say you make your own stress

And that it’s detrimental to your health

They say that success breeds success

And in life one must know one’s self

They say stars can’t shine without darkness

And money doesn’t necessarily mean wealth

But none of this means anything unless

You realise

my wine glass isn’t going to fill itself
