It took weeks for Ryan to find a job.
It took years for Ryan to own a business.
In a field full of hunger Ryan filled out the application.
He was called crazy, but he was working, due to fear of starvation.
Ryan didn’t have a clue, the earth began to shake, the bombs began to fall from the sky but Ryan kept working and no one knew why.
His wife cheated and left him for dead, his best friend slept with her and then grew dreads but that man Ryan kept showing up everyday for work. One of his best customers even called him a jerk.
His father’s leg fell off and he literally watched the church he attended his whole life burn to the ground but he clocked in as though he were lost and found.
He eventually ended up owning the place, while learning the ends and outs he ended up purchasing more space.
He was made from the dust and never knew he would be called to do anything, but little did Ryan know was that his hunger led him to fulfill the American dream.
His work ethic and ability to show up was the fuel that his people needed.
Most of them had become lazy and heavily weeded.
Ryan, oh Ryan, what have you done? You’ve stirred up the crowd who rather enjoyed having fun.
You’ve outworked the whole nation that failed to remember that gruesome cold feeling of hunger and starvation.
Ryan, oh Ryan, why did you apply for the job? Was it really that bad for the other workers who quit and just didn’t want to be involved?
Ryan, oh Ryan, now you sit in an honorary position because you believed in the dream and stayed away from superstition.
You’re vision lit a fire under the next generation, all because you showed up to work even after your graduation.
At the end of Ryan’s journey his message was clear, you’re never too rich or to poor in a world filled with spears. Spears that are sharp and they stab you when least expected so stay on your toes and encourage those who’ve been neglected.
Ryan was dumb but he saw the light, he showed up for work and did his job day and night.
They laughed at him and called him names all because he applied for a job that brought others shame.
In the end, Ryan became a legend, for the God fearing dummy worked his way to heaven.
At his gravesite in a field full of heroes, people til this day still come to visit just to be reminded that ones are greater than zeros.
They all remembered the day when Ryan first applied now because of him the help wanted sign is still alive.
The moral of this story is simple: Fun in the sun doesn’t get the job done.
