A Man’s Pride

A Man's Pride

I remember a time

When finding and holding a job

Was sacred to pay the bills

Living from paycheck to paycheck

Supporting your family

Under the control of a system

That could make and break you

Fire you and promote your wife

Robbing you from your pride

As a man, a husband and a provider

Falling victim to sub activities

Of crime, drugs and alcohol

Landing you in jail
