The role they did not want

M  ountains of work, bills, burden-- the family must be fed.

A  nd a young man's dreams?

N  o.   they don't exist.

 

W  orried silver threads

O  ver the sink, bubbles sliding on wrinkles

M  ore work, more time, stuck in a role

A  ppreciation?

N  o one ever gives.
