A Labor Woman
Angular, lean and tall
She trudges down the road
No lament, no complaint
While carrying life’s load.
Breathing in heavy air
She walks on burning coal
To the target ill defined
Foggy and fuzzy goal.
Below a sunless sky
Above a stony ground
She walks oblivious
Of all that is around.
Putting herself to grind
Resigned to Destiny
The moments she has lived
Counting on finger tips
Forgetting the bulk of life
She lived through slighting slips.
Living on crumbling crumbs
Without any crutch of comfort
Without even illusions
Across her life’s desert.
