I am on my feet;
boss on my back–
just won’t cut me any slack.
With only few hours of sleep,
Contemplating on taking this leap.
Not sure how I got down this path I was led.
All I know is that it is at least better than dead.
Sometimes I feel as if this hole is too steep.
At the end of the day I get go home–
hug the kids, hug the wife–
a place where I no longer feel alone.
It’s not always easy, yet I still love my life.
We’ve built something great, and it surely is shown.
Everyday, hanging on with all my might.
