    time is full of sweat
    under the blaze of
    a tropical sun
    hands and feet
    calloused and blistered
    yeah but it feels good
    blessed to haul
    to dig to carry to clean
    to bury to move to and fro
    with so much weight in tow
    to rise before dawn
    and drive the body
    under the swelter of
    the sun
    and barely even see dusk
    for sheer exhaustion
    blessed to stress
    the body this way
    blessed to have the ocean
    less than 50 steps away
    blessed to munch lunch
    strip and swim
    before lunch ends
    and work begins again
    can't complain
    when I've seen
    so much worse in
    my days
    so even when I can
    barely keep my eyes open
    I'm knowin' blessings abound
