was watching a video on virginia satir doing the satir model during today's training. the parents' love for the son was so enlightening and it struck me so much that i wrote this song/poem instead of paying attention to the vid. actually, i did pay attention la, just not so much until this was done. it was also inspired from my own parents' experiences that i remembered they briefly shared in the past when i was younger. so this is dedicated to all parents! =)

verse 1: 
working hard day and night 
in the midst of darkness and the light 
knowing that the sweat of my brow 
will help to turn the world around 

walking in the early dawn 
trduging feets on the ground 
crass is painted with fresh dew 
knowing that it'll make future generations new 

chorus: 
i'll fight, i'll work hard for my children 
to give them something i was not given 
my love, experiences and all i am 
my legacy is what i leave to give to them 

verse 2: 
mistakes i've made, it doesn't matter 
because i know it's for the better 
insults, sarcasm and beatings, i'll endure 
for my children, they'll have it better than before 

chorus: 
i'll fight, i'll work hard for my children 
to give them something i was not given 
my love, experiences and all i am 
my legacy is what i leave to give to them 

bridge: 
they may not understand 
what i have done and sacrificed for them 
but i hope that one day they'll see 
all i've given was the best part of me 

chorus: 
i'll fight, i'll work hard for my children 
to give them something i was not given 
my love, experiences and all i am 
my legacy is what i leave to give to them 

chorus: 
i'll fight, i'll work hard for my children 
to give them something i was not given 
my love, experiences and all i am 
my legacy is what i leave to give to them
