Gratitude From the Weary

She almost gave up

And gave it one last try

To serve coffee at the 

Coffee shop, but 

There they said

She could not.

Age it was

She couldn’t keep up.

Years and years

Of education

Times well spent 

With her vocation

Teaching her children well.

And now it’s so

She can’t get hired

She’s getting tired.

Bills are huge

And bank account low

Mood is black

And surely it shows.

Until one day

A young lass does

See her resume

And values her life


Rounds and rounds

Of interviews and a

Career is born 

To one who was


Oh the gratitude

To the one who saw

A little value in

The one in her fall.
