(To the parents striving for better lives for them and their loved ones.)
This is what they are
They worked hard for it
and now it’s time to acknowledge it
They’ve built their own house,
bought a town house,
rent one where they live,
but no one seems to care
They have a beautiful car,
pay school fees,
buy groceries monthly and never complain.
What is it that they don’t pay for?
Petrol, food, clothing, education and services rendered to them.
If all that is taken into account
all the years added up
It’s over a million.
They are millionaires in their own right.
They may not live like them,
but they certainly are something.
For the hard work that usually doesn’t get recognition.
It is highly appreciated,
because it benefits everyone.
Millionaires you are.
