Hard Days
 
Hard days assail me
When easy times will return
I may never know
 
Cruel words you say
Thick skin laid bare by your words
Must I always bear?
 
Think before you speak
Would you wish it said to you?
Would it hurt you too?
 
More expectations
We all have limitations
Please cut me some slack
 
I do what I must
Courtesy is all I ask
Helps me get it done
 
Take your stress elsewhere
Don’t place this burden on me
I shall become you
