MY EFFORT
===============
GIANT STEPS

At first I was sure
I could do it
I was positive
I told myself
I can do this
Walk in Papa's
Boots
While living back then
As a farmer was
Sweat and blood on
The roots
Could it be that hard
Today
I asked myself
Rising before
Dawn feeding and tending
Livestock
Watching crops grow
From a seed in the dirt
Harvesting vast acres
Of produce from sunup to
Sundown
Then it dawned on me
Even
With today's technology
With modern machinery
And time-saving devices
I knew those boots were
Still big
I wasn't
So positive
Anymore
