People who have never experienced the life of an over the road truck driver have no idea how difficult the job and the lifestyle is. Here's a little poem I wrote to let drivers know that some of us do understand, and that we're thinking about you all the time.

If sight seeing is all they think you do, They need to look inside for more of a view.

The chaos, the stress, and all the worry, To get the frieght from point A to B in a great hurry.

What they don't understand is how, All they want is to have it now.

Trying to explain life on the road is Something that they don't want to hear or uphold.

Their busy lives as they go about, Is all they think of without a doubt.

So keep doing what you do and Know for a fact that there's someone ALWAYS praying for you.
