I saw a man
Everyday grinding grain into meal
His face was very Tan
Wrinkles surrounded his eyes
A gray beard clung to the loose skin of his face
Dark brown eyes looked weary
With no vision in sight

I stopped one day and ask him
If he liked his job
He looked at me and said
Why do you ask me such a silly question
I have a wife and kids
Everyday I get a little sack of meal
And a few pence in purse every week
For meat

I paused for a minute and said
I understand but I just wondered if you like your job
He looked at me and said
Why do you ask me such a silly question
I have a wife and kids
Everyday I get a little sack of meal
And a few pence in purse every week
For meat

What Sekadhar said is true - our cards are dealt. What we do with them is totally up to us.
