It always seems like,
The world is in my way.
I give life all I’ve got,
Every hour of every day.
I’m honest and kind.
Always keeping others in mind.
I can’t help but wonder when,
I will be my time to shine.
Simple things in life I seek.
Guess that’s not in the cards for the meek.
Happiness, toys, and adventures to go on.
I want to give my children,
Before they grow up and leave home.
They need innocence to hold onto.
A memory in their hearts to sing to.
I’ll give them that and more someday.
If only the world would get out of my way.
