They Are Just Boys

They are just boys,

at 1 am, wrestling, bumping me awake.

I have to be up at six, my day starts with difficulty.

Through the day I struggle, push myself past the exhaustion.

Have to earn my living to support them.

The sun is setting and so tired I plan to go to bed soon.

I hope tonight they will settle and leave me to rest.

So tired it is hard to not take personally.

But they, are just boys.
