I Said The Burdens - Poem by vincent armone

Work long and never ending
bills of emormous size
kids, hungery waiting mouths
spouse expecting other

I said the burdens

Sleep distant memory
pain constant reality
heart ache all too real

I said the burdens


Not younger
In a yuppy word
that moves too fast
for ageing knees

I said the burdens


Family loving
tolerent of refective out bursts
at pressures not from them

I said the burdens


Hands to my face
I weep tears of blood
for a world so wonderess
yet so hard
lifes gifts for there for taking
In a world that refuses to give them up

I said the burdens
