from my first book

Sorry you need experience

but you wonít hire me

sorry try for a personal loan

but Iím just outta high school with a part time


sorry youíre over qualified

meaning I make too much money

well I say screw you!

kiss my ass

Iím gonna show you

whether or not you care

I will not be just another one:

a statistic

on welfare by your encouragement

in debt from my ass to my eyes

so sorry to you

cause Iím not being fucked, lied, or tricked by

you ever again!

find yourself another pig

another drug

You junkieógettin high off my color

gettin high off me being a minority

gettin high off me coming from a

single parent home

I refuse to be your drug of choice anymore

You are doing the right thing. It reminds me of what my brother's wife told me about a black teacher telling her to NOT go to college, evemn though she was fairly good in high school. It is like a massive brainwashing thing in America, where even the blacks have been "trained" to discriminate against other blacks. And don't think it is just happening to blacks, although we are the drug of choice in America. It is pitiful, how people will try to hold you back, but you must be stronger than them and know your own mind. Don't let anyone define who you are (wise words to me from Eileen Waldron)because you are a mountain of "unused/unrealized/unfinished" strength.
Peace - write on!

A well said truth! Keep them coming.
