Oh the soaring hopes felt with each purchase,
“how fine it will be to make easy money!”
You just know those companies will go
up in value, and make thousands for you.
But then reality comes crashing in,
with each day of triple-digit loss.
They drop and your heart sinks too.
“Patience,” counsels a better voice.
To participate in a financial world
run by minds far sharper than ours
is always a risky proposition...
seems like we only make money if they do.
Everyone has a stake in the markets,
and even experts cannot fully predict
which way it will go for sure. But
it is not a game for faint-hearted souls.
As I clench my desk with sweaty hands,
seeing each new days losses, I am left to
wonder: Just how faint-hearted am I?
