“Better Than Dead” by Dalton Palmer

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.
