Injured worker

by wishawave

He is injured
Injured at work
Work was his pride
Pride is now falling into murk

Murk engulfs his heart
Heart has suffered with fingers lost
Lost is also the peace of his family
Family lives in the struggle of exhaust

Exhaust corners him to give in
In a pain of non-returning point
Point where the family heads to be dissolved
Dissolved because unfair fate has cast disjoint

I have seen injured workers who are not properly compensated or taken care of because of the system setting or other reasons. Their lives go downward because of the mishap happened at workplace which was not their fault. More advocacy is needed for these injured workers.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
