James Elston


I struglle day and night
To provide for my family
I work real hard at night
Then go to school at day

I struggle to provide
Making sure everyone gets to eat
Watching my paycheck get depleted
Wishing the bills will cease

I struggle to get through the day
Dreading what may come
I know I will survive though because
Your love can always conquer my sorrow

    I love it because it's so truthful. It's hard for everyone whoever you are.
