I remember the darker days

When night lived all around me

 

I remember the vivid haze

Of nostalgia surrounding me

 

It was not the knife that carved up the bread,

But hard work and a sense of responsibility

It was not the booth that took its toll,

But time and the hardships it set for me

 

I can now enjoy a break

My time of struggle is over

 

I sit and watch the next player play

While time sets up its next obstacles to overtake
