Travails of an Immigrant..

In search of golden fleece
A man is thrown out of his reins
Unsure and uncertain of the future
He leaves his family and loved ones
For a journey into the unknown

Across thousands of miles
Leaving a whole world behind him
Immersed in a new tradition
Culture, color and creed
Into a world of the unknown

He is abused, used and dumped
He works the dirty jobs daily
Summer and winter, he's there
Holding it down to pay the bills
In a world of the unknown

Hanging in there for so long
Almost on the verge of breaking up
Back ache persist, work confronts
loved ones back home, yearning for crumbs
From a man almost made spineless
In a world of the unknown
