Life is more than a hand-out.
You have to find ways to stand out.
To survive in this world,
you must have more than a few tricks up your sleeves.
If not, you will get swallowed up over a measly dollar or two.
Swallowed up in trying to survive on minimum wage when you’re
living in times when the rich get richer and the poor face cruelty,
or things said because hair may be “nappy” or skin just a few shades too
darkened by the sun-kissed sky under the heavens above.
We’re living in times when others climbing their corporate ladders
may even ask you to hold the ladder while they climb.
Life requires more than compensation to know there is more to all
like come to your senses,
or come to Jesus-
give Him a try.
But whatever you do,
do not swallow in your sorrow.
Keep hope alive,
do not let life get you down,
you’re bigger than that,
for a matter-of-fact,
you’re much more better than that….
You are you,
and I am me…
together with unity,
LOVE conquers all.
