It Is earlier Than I Would Like

We All Have To Do What We Must Do

Go to work and provide for our families

It is nice to have two days off

Where my wife and I spend more time together

Not having to be apart for eight hours

We might be doing chores and errands

The things we didn't have time for during our busy week

It's o.k. as long as we do it together

Our jobs take us in different directions

I am a short-order cook and my wife is a customer care professional

We each chose our profession

In some cases, I think our professions chose us

I go to work and love my job

I look around me and most if not all co-workers don't feel the same way

My work is only a small part of who I am

Even after the busiest of days

Where everything went well

I feel there is something there

That I want to accomplish so much more

When I turn to write

It gives me a different sense of accomplishment

Not one of monetary value

One of great pride and ownership

The feeling of dedication and admiration

As I blend them both together

They in many different ways explain what I do and can not do

My struggles and my setbacks

My accomplishments and my greatest feelings of joy

It is in these writings that I see a bigger and better picture

One that we all live

We all try to make some sense of life

We carry on

Spending time within our own families

Sharing times with our friends

To love and be loved

Then there will come a time

Our story will end

Only to see someone else's story begin
