Struggle

struggle

Years of hard work,

They said it would pay off

 

Sacrifices you made,

Resilience you showed

 

But they said,

‘Don’t give up yet…

… it will bear fruits’

 

And today you stare,

Nothing to show for it,

But the despair inside you

 

They must have lied,

When they said that hard-work pays

 

The hope you had,

All the faith you held on to

Vanished

 

Reality hits,

Its no longer about what you always hoped for,

But the bitter reality you carry around
