The Circle of Life

Posted on Feb 3, 2012


Ten years ago he was
Out of work
Jobs were scarce
A recession lurked

He was struggling
To survive
Fighting for his
Family, his life

Food on the table
Bills to pay
Money went like
Water everyday

He worked all the
Hours that were sent
But paying everything
Across, frustrations vent

No life, as out-priced
For small things
Food and drink went up
And the freedom money can bring

He fought for his dreams
But just out of reach
Always a struggle to get there
Through the clouds to see

Ten years later still the same
The circle of life
Came back round again
And with it too late hindsight
