Lord show me the way, and If you can't show me a way... forgive me for being lost :)

So much depends upon my stopwatch
Or the urgency to work
Followed by a cashing a check
Money and material things
Anything seemed possible
Wants now became extinct
McDonalds, now my permanent scent
“May, I help you” and manners
Now became my nature instincts
Gaining weight now became an issue
But all I knew
Longs shift
When is this going to end
Blisters and bruises from the machines one my hands
But I kept going to see my check
This way the bittersweet pain of working my first job

This was inspired by my first job, Mc Donalds. How hard work pays off, literally.
