you struggle to survive

you struggle to survive

as you struggle to survive

Breaking your back to stay alive

you give your best, day after day

while your youth and dreams fade away

you work sixteen hour days

put in so many hours

weeks fly by in a haze

eat, work, eat, sleep, repeat

everyday on the go until your beat

laying in bed, staying awake,

mulling over the routine you dred

wondering what is it going to take

to get even a little bit ahead

An Ivy league or mere high school level education

can all understand this wide spread frustration

as you struggle to survive
