Hard Work
by Jason Tomlinson

Nothing beats hard work enthusiasm filled with drive

such hard work is the key that makes one truly alive
to be able to see what no one else can
and problem solve with an original plan
to restore order where chaos once reigned
to understand what before could never be explained
will lead to such an ethic of action
that no other could understand the attraction
and they might say something like “wow you worked hard
your dedication never dropped guard!”
just let em think it but we both know
That that’s not right it’s just not so
cause hard work in its purest state
opens up every door and gate
does that sound like labor at all?
no! hard work happens in response to a call
from One higher One better One who knows
and coming from Him you know how that goes
days weeks and months putting sweat on your head
but they only feel like moments instead
hard work like that leads to changing action
that’s the hard work that brings  about satisfaction
