Making a living, making a life Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Pedus, Australia Jun 13, 2007
Human Rights , Globalization   Poetry


When you strive and toil
In the deserts heat
Or from a panoramic office view
In the scotching heat of Africa
Or in the sea breeze of Florida
You are driven to eke out a living
You are making a living, making a life

When time cruises by
and there seems to be no end in sight
You work as you pray
and pray as you work
You are inspired as you aspire
You make way for generations unborn
You are making a living, making a life

When your hope seems to have dashed
and the polity has failed
You see no hope, no way
Yet you strive anew
You relive your past
Yet your bravery prevails
You are making a living, making a life
