There is Rest for the Weary

Large crowd of people

He said,

she said

her mother should apologize…

his daddy needs a backbone…

Their young children are left home again

who is running their household?…

Whose 13 years old this is wandering

the streets at night?…

The neighbors are playing their music too loud again…

Did you notice the newspaper headlines

is about another shooting?…

They caught the guy who broke into our house…

She’s pregnant again…

Should he tell him he’s not the father…

His father is the man next door…

We haven’t seen the old lady across the street for days…

They’re serving them another eviction notice…

He lost $600 gambling again,

and he just got paid…

Can I borrow a few dollars?

We’ll stop drinking next month …

We wished we’d listened to my grandmother…

They lost their family over foolishness…

We can’t borrow from Peter to pay Paul

because we already owe Peter...

We’re tired of struggling…

We’re weary…

There is rest for the weary….
