Toil in silence

You're unprepared, who never lost
a treasure kept, just tears
who never hungered only to find
a famine through the years

You who never wearily toiled
with only riches to pave your road
will find in the sunset of your years
a heartless, heavy load

How many griefs to overcome
before you find your way
ho many sorrows to fill you heart
how many prayers to pray

And how many more scars
to create part by part
enough hurts to make whole
your pain shuttered heart

Don't ask
Don't ask
It's a life long task
