MR May 2018
How far would you go?                                                              ­                            
If you had a family but no job
Three mouths to feed and no money at all                                    

Banks calling but they need to hold on
Huge debts that you need to confront                      
Nobody said life would be so rough
For an honest man who has never done wrong

"Better times will come"
You gave me your word
Trying not to let me down
And showing some self-control

"I'm waiting for my pension my dear love
I hope it comes in time
Cause I'm giving up"
my dad's response:
beautiful description about how i honestly feel.
desperate, but in control
making a serious effort not to give up
dreaming to have a better future
for all of us.  ~LR
