- Chapter 04
He wakes up in the early parts of the morning, When the rest of his house is sound asleep So he can put in the extra hours for the sweet dreams of his family.
His children never sees his defeat Nor his wife sees the pain. He masks his troubles in front of his family Trying his best to hide his discomfort.
When the barns are empty and the livestock is dying, The smile upon his childrens' faces And the full stomachs in his house Gives this man another reason to go on.
As he lays down to rest He looks to the corner of the room Where his pitchfork stands Unsure if he will have the energy To go on tomorrow He bids a goodnight to his companion For today his work was done.
