 Hearts' of my soul emotions

How Do They Do That?


As we rest after a days work,
reading the newspaper or watching TV.
We see you with all you have,
spouting success and satisfaction.
How do you do that?

Our children are lacking,
while watching yours have fun.
They grow up angry and overcome
by the images that yours present.
How do you do that?

As parents today, this is tiring
trying to compete with you
in our children's eyes.
How do you do that?

We dream of instant wealth,
spending money we don't have,
trying to be just like you.
But on 6.50 an hour, times two
tell me neighbor . . .
How do you do that?
