A Common Man Comments

Rating: 4.7
He works so hard every day
Doing pretty much what he’s told
The days slowly turn into years
As his life carefully unfolds

Nicely written poem with gentle emotion behind it. Many people, especially husband's, work day in and day out, year in and year out, without complaining. I think we sometimes take them for granted. At the same time, you suggest that it seems somehow not right - a horse's life is perhaps better. Yes, I don't think this kind of endless toil is what we were meant to use our lives doing.

Comparing with a horse was tongue in cheek, not taken literally. But, we do need to relax in life so we can enjoy all of our hard work. Thank you for your thoughtful comment.

It certainly comes across as a master's work. A terriffic tribute to the battering a common man takes all his life without complaining. Incredible and outstanding.

Thank you very much for you sweet comment. My father was this kind of man. I will always miss him but now that I am almost 75, perhaps before long I shall see him again.

Poetry comes effortlessly to you depicting peace and constancy of the life of a common man vis-a-vis the life full of viles and intrigues with the rich. Its rhyme, rhythm and music made my day. Thanks for sharing it. Regards, CP
