Hard Working Woman

Where is the happiness of my people?
What has become of their pride?
Fighting each other is where they are

Which is the ruling feeling today?
Has it evolved for the better?
Or for the worse instead?

The feeling of fear and isolation
The desperation and loneliness
are the everyday bread

Each woman is in silence waiting
not knowing what the future will bring
if there will be food tomorrow
is the mistery of her life

While people are fighting people
and both groups say they are best
she is in the middle of everything
shivering inside with fear

What kind of future does she have?
Do their children have hope?
Why is the bread so hard to buy?
They promised her better stands
she's still waiting, innocent and calm

She does not know about politics,
nor about hatred and lies,
she only knows about working
from the morning to the night
