A Cruel World

This world only respects those who are white and rich
Everyone else, it tramples and makes them its bitch
In this school called life we take many classes
For some it’s failures
For others it’s straight passes
That’s just how life goes
And we all just go with its flows

Take a look around the world with me
Let’s go round and round till it makes us dizzy
Here we are tossed to the left, there we are tossed to the right
A few bruises and scars,
Countless battles and wars
Yet our smiles always seems to beam like the brightest light

Go around the world with us
Swing around the world with us
Everyone is smiling at us
That’s because they’re laughing at us
Some of them try to be friends with us
But we know they’re only trying to play tricks on us
Lurking like vipers beneath the dust
Waiting for their chance to burn and lynch  us
Yet here we are still living,
And to them always still giving

Many of us are lost and poor
That’s why to them we grovel and whore
Boy am I growing ever weary
Of this existence so drab and dreary
Some of us just don’t care
cause what’s the point?
Life is just unfair.

Night and day, they thrash and crush us
We do our best not to murmur or fuss
Everytime things look like they would go well for us
Their jealousy swells and they bomb us to dust
They make us live so meticulously
And when one of us rises they glare and grit their teeth enviously
For the sake of going forward, many have fought, and many have died.
Many have made orphans of their little whelps
And like the devils they are, they flip the script and knock us back a thousand steps.

    One of my favorite IMA shows is House of Cards…Its racist and psuedo gay but brutally truthful…Kevin Spacey said it best….Money is not Power and He doesnt respect anyone who simply cares about mone….The world respects White Language, White Culture, White Religion, White Ideals……its not about class….its about Cultural and Power.

        Just like the man said, you can fool all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all of the time. Hatred is a waste, let’s try love and see where we end up, please.

    Reblogged this on barclaydave and commented:
    While I agree with the poet, it’s time we changed the status quo. Stand up and be counted, I may be white but I’m never gonna be rich. I love everyone because I respect everyone, no matter who they are to you, to me they’re humans and deserving of love, life and our gratitude.
