A body needs rest

At times the body forces a rest
The tiredness forces a long sleep
The morning comes and the body is still tired
how much suffering is money worth?

Duty is fulfilled
Daily needs are met
There is some for the future
The young must remember that there is a future

The eyes see the state of the house
Worry has allowed decay
There is much that needs done
When money is free, time is valuable

The tired restlessness in unbearable
Exhaustion, yet eyes that see all that needs done
Even busy new tasks are created
We eat our bread by the sweat on our brow

Slowly there is a waking
Tiredness slowly dissipates
Today must be a day of rest
Restlessness translated into housekeeping

A smile flashes on the face
There is pride at the work accomplished
