A common man gets out of bed, goes through the day, and then goes to bed
a common man

An uncommon man
fathers a common child
a common child grows
watches a common father
a common man accepts a wife

a common man treasures his wife
fathers a child
a common man loves a child
spawns a family
a common man protects a family

a common man sweats
cherishes a wife
a common man works
loves a family
a common man knows the heat

a common man matures
loves a mother
a common man watches
understands a father
a common man knows the cold

a common man loses
his parents
a common man weeps
and sees the joy
a common man keeps on

a common man stands
takes pride in a son
a common man feels pain
takes pride in a daughter
a common man knows sorrow

a common man watches
life crumble
a common man has
knees that bleed
a common man rises

a common man is stooped
with aches and age
a common man reflects
is thankful
An uncommon man
