Dawn Breaks

Eyes filled with unembraced sleeps
Looks tired on a face with overdefined age lines
Yet a weak smile blooms that’s brought out by thoughts of
Pockets filled with money that can pull through another day

Hands too tired to wash away the dirt
Still hold tools tight as they feed him everyday
The tired legs carry him home through the roads he laid
That’s how, everyday, his dawn breaks.
