I paid my dues

I did what they said
So I could fit in
I went and got married
I didn’t live in sin

Of course I had children
Just two and not three
So now they‘re added
To my family tree

Money was tight
I needed to work
I had horrible jobs
That made me berserk

Too much pressure
As a mother and a wife
Plus having to work
Was a stressful life

Weeks became months
Months became years
When the children left
I couldn’t stop the tears

Not enough time
I could hardly find
To spend with my kids
When looking behind

I paid my dues
I did what they said
A major depression
I had instead
