I beg you for some coins. I work very hard to earn it, but they took everything from me.

Since there is no context to go on, I would be inclined to use other wording than you, but your translations will certainly work.

I'm on my knees here. I work very hard to earn a living, but they have taken it all away.


The direct object 'lo', used in each sentence, may be referencing a singular, masculine object or it could be referencing an idea (only understood in context).

Yeah, I was hoping it wasn't you trying to come up with a sign that you could kneel behind on a corner of a busy street.
