He works all day, dreams to feed each one,

Empty pockets linger, the day is done.

Children eager to learn, dreams so wide,

But the weight of poverty, a harsh divide.

At home, echoes of arguments in the air,

His partner's discontent, a constant affair.

Bills pile up, debts never-ending,

In this life's maze, no respite, no mending.

Health frail, a shadow in the night,

The cost of care adds to the fight.

Dreams of peace seem to hover,

when does a man become a monster?
