My Inspiration

For you to feel as you feel right

My Inspiration

I work and I work and I know not why

To help greedy bastards

As I help myself die.

I keep on going until I no longer can

And get replaced by another

A more naive man

They take and they take until I've no more to give

So I sit there and wonder

Why do I live?

The days seem longer than all the years I’ve known

As my life flashes before me

I’ve not yet grown.

And then I remember, that was worth why!

For a hug and a kiss

Under a sun setting sky

From the most beautiful of angels sent from above

That through all my grief

Holds onto my love

I've been writing for years. Not always great... but it means a lot to me
