I Would Rather Work Hard - Poem by john chizoba vincent


I would rather work hard than steal,
What does stealing has to do with me?
Instead of being mock at the market place
I would rather toil day and night under
The rain and sun sweating like though
Am to die today.
I woukd rather work hard than beg for bread
Whic men give proudly and does not satisfy.
I would rather work hard than been idle;
An iddle hand is a devil's hand tool.
I would rather labour in tears than make
My tent among thieves and idle hands.
