Working a part-time job

Doing full-time hours

We are all trying to make money

Not realizing only half of the check is ours

Work never ends and ends never meet

So we are looking for a place to sit and think

On a way out because too long

We have been standing on our feet

We’re tired…

Overworked and underpaid

Over worked and underutilized for actual skills

Overworked and unappreciated

Did I mention we are overworked?

Hindered by favoritism

Shunned by racism

Beaten by the system but never broken

We are too strong for that

Strong for our kids

Strong for our families

Strong for ourselves

Strong because our God made us this way

Go ahead, leave us in the dark

You can’t beat a child of God

There’s a brighter day ahead.

      Thanks so much! I am glad it helped. Also, go to youtube and type in Dottie Peoples “Brighter Day”. That was the inspiration.

        Okay. I listened to All My Help from the same CD a couple of days ago.
