School Supplies

A mother dream of better lives

for her children to realize

to buy school supplies

for her children's youthful eyes

Simple slippers on their feet

a school uniform nice and neat

a bag notebooks and worksheet

would make this picture complete

She washes dishes and makes wishes

Her husband digs ditches and fishes

They have to take what she can get

forced to live a life of deep regret

Her desperate life is so sad

Still better lives can be had

School supplies would make her glad

And makes her life not so bad

To go to school the rules apply

to have slippers and school supplies

which she works so hard to buy so she cries

when we send her school supplies
