Working Towards Home

Sore feet,
rough, callused,
blisters from new shoes,
rubbing
hips, lower back, aching.
Tired, unused to standing
free time eaten up
weekends vanished,
workdays blend together
kids take on added tasks.
Every moment we spend together
more precious
all making sacrifices.
The goal, the dream
slowly coming more into focus
the hard work, sore body,
extra hours, less sleep
will all be worth it
when we first turn the key in the lock
first lay down in our beds
and have a place to call home.
