A Silent Promise


I'll work hard, Mom

to buy you a house

a house you would always admire

when flipping through house catalogs 

but could never afford

I'll work hard, Dad

to fill you with peace

so all the times people looked down on you

and treated you like an ox

you can truly smile

I'll work hard for the both of you

so you won't have to do anything for me

more than you already do.
