first to rise, last to sleep
a burden so heavy on his shoulder
no one to ease his pain, no one to help him carry
he longs for rest but he has a family to feed
in this he draws strength for them he must be strong, they need to food to eat, a decent home to stay and the little ones need to go to school.
as he steps out of the house he says a prayer
he prays that good luck is on his side that he won't return emty handed.
of he goes to sweat and tire as he tools, not for himself but for his loved ones back at home.
