Life is hard

Oh how i struggle to survive ,

Such a hard time to be alive.

To make ends meet is all i ask,

Why should this be such a mammoth task?

Pay the rent or heat the flat?

The one i share with an enormous rat.

I go to work every day, 

So what is standing in my way?

The cost of childcare bleeds me dry,

I cant catch up , although i try.

If only i had someone there,

To help me cope, to care.

I do have something i should thank,

Newcastle west end food bank.
