Work in Progress

Despite the sweat that burns my eyes
No matter the countless tears cried
The ones that want to struggle 
Earning bread by my muscles
In the dark, hoping to be free
Hoping God has a plan for me
His work is hard to see
Many nights on my knees
Begging please
The end of the tunnel 
I have yet to see
Bur still moving on
My days here have been long
Filled with misery
My boss seems like she's out to get me
Where is my drink
To deal with this pain
At times, my life seems like a game
Still pushing on
Freedom is my song
Until they lay me to rest
My life remains work in progress

    A thought-provoking piece. We are all "work in progress" until our final day, I guess.
