We have, in front of us, so many inspiring stories and lyrics of songs that we can apply in our personal financial life, especially the ones that can be applied to debt. This blog tries to be inspirational to live your financial life to the fullest without incurring heavy debt, along with giving practical advice how to manage debt.

I lived my life on borrowed money…

Yesterday when I was young
The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue,
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game
The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame.

The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned
I always built, alas, on weak and shifting sand (on borrowed money),
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
And only now I see how the years ran away.

My attitude towards debt was pathetic…

Yesterday when I was young
So many drinking songs were waiting to be sung,
So many wayward pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see.

I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out
I never stopped to think what life was all about,
And every conversation I can now recall
Concerned itself with me, me, and nothing else at all.

Carefree living is no more…My debt is creeping up on me…

Yesterday the moon was blue
And every crazy day brought something new to do,
I used my magic age as if it were a wand
And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond.

The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
And every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died.

The friends I made all seemed, somehow, to drift away
And only I am left on stage to end the play.

Unable to repay debt…

There are so many songs in me that won’t be sung,
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue.

The time has come for me to pay for yesterday
When I was young… young… young
