Like dirty dishes that sit in a sink filled with dirty water
So to are the problems of life filled with dirty air
We have to rid ourselves of all the pollution and grudges
For life itself needs its dishes cleaned with a lot of care
 
Some of the dirty dishes of life will never come clean
But we still continue to scrub as though they will be new
I find myself trying to clean a plate that already be cleaned
And all of my expended energies are used until I am through
 
The stains of life can sometimes get so stuck on you dishes
That the most concentrated efforts cannot remove the stain
So you continue to scrub and scrub until it starts to peel away
And like removing the stains of dishes, you can remove pain
 
Life can be a sink filled with dirty dishes along with pots and pans
And the very challenges of cleaning those dishes can be an ordeal
The similarities of dishes and problems of life can be related
As the process of cleaning those dishes and problems can be real
 
There will be many artificial remedies to cleaning those dirty dishes
And in your life there will be dishes and pain that cannot be cleaned
But you scrub them anyway hoping that the top layer is soon removed
And those Dirty Dishes of Life are spotless and a smile can be seen

Such humor in truth. A lesson for us all... perhaps?
