Battle Weary Worker - Poem by Walter C. Edwards

When I have to wake up,
in the morning,
I pull myself in pain,
the earth is tugging at me,
once again,
I place myself in morning,
to the coming day,
sun is bright before me,
but all I see is gray,
battle weary worker,
tortured by economic forces,
on the line for my own liberty,
feel that in this war,
I am losing my mind,
and dignity.
