Since Life Can Be A Challenge

Since life can be a challenge in many a way
The two words be happy seem easy to say
You must work overtime with a big home mortgage to pay
And your pregnant wife due to give birth any day
For the family this should be a joyous occasion indeed
But with the arrival of a new family member to clothe provide for and feed
To add to your already three girls and a boy
The extra stress on your finances may temper some of your joy
In the dark of the morning to the ring of the alarm clock you wake
To prepare for work an hour before daybreak
With the rising cost of living and big bills for to meet
How can you feel the happiest one on your street
And with your most recent home mortgage payment overdue
Only survival not happiness is what you pursue.
