Sloopy by G P
My feet are aching
My head is spinning
all I need is a break
A cool ocean breeze
A clear summer sky
A vacation from my
cluttered, burdened life

I've picked up
more things than I 
can put down
without paying 
a heavy price
There are no
bargins in the
supermarket of life

with dishpan hands
and bleeding soles
I struggle for
keeping the kids
well fed
in knowledge and
understanding
Hoping that they
can find a better
way than pounding 
the pavement
finding a menial job
just to get on by

Everyone talks 
of a mother's love
NOTHING of a
father's responsibility
IT DOESN'T END
when we don't love
one another anymore

Shedding his family
like  a glove 
In search of his 
identity 
It is in vain
because I can tell him
it's a lost cause

He SHOULD BE 
SEARCHIN' FOR 
HIS DIGNITY!
