    Me and mine

    My purpose, is not explained
    By man.
    I give it my all, I do the best
    I can.
    But Sometimes my best don’t matter
    My climb is tough cause I work with a
    Shorter ladder.
    But I push on,
    I stay strong
    Cause I know why God has given me my time.
    Im here to produce a better life for me
    And mine.
    The life I live I give to HIM.
    I pray through the sunny days, and even days
    That are dim.
    I’m making it now, but I always want better.
    I want my ends to meet every month, but it would be nice to have
    Some extra cheddar.
    But that’s a petty wish, cause I’m putting food
    On the dish
    Of me and mine
    And at no time
    Will they want for nothing.
    By all means I’ll
    Do anything.
    To bring
    Them happiness in a world that can be tough.
    I want to be the calm in their storm,
    when the waters Get rough.
    But most of all, when it has come to the end of my time.
    I want to look down at the earth as it spins.
    And feel proud of the work I put in with Me and mines….
