My Inspiration

For you to feel as you feel right

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
