Daily missive for Monday the 18th of August.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 18th of August.

Weary to the bone,
Head hung low,
Spine twisted
With the weight of life.
She sang,
Low and sweet.
Gospel mainly,
Old words
That lifted her spirits
As she worked.

Hard times
Never changed
They were just different.
Hard work
Never hurt before.
But she carried the pain
Of feeling less than
She set out to be.

She stood taller then,
Than now.
Head held high,
Voice soaring,
With hope of tomorrow
And songs of freedom.

She believed
Everything would change.
The world
Would be a better place.
But that did not
Come to pass.

Still, she fought
For every single inch.
Every penny pinched.
Stood face to face
With the world,
And always found time
To sing.
As she worked
Her life away
In the hope
A better day,
Would come her way,
Tomorrow.
