I know the one on the phone
Painted the false picture of a big hunk of cash
Sounded so attractive in a dash
Anyway it was a nice attractive dream for a night
Oh I know it wasn't real just to the caller know
For the one who pushes me to attend school again
During the course of the day, and what I seek
I cannot make my mind up every 20 minutes or so
Thanks for your concern anyway.
Yet One Major University is a 5 min. Buss ride I can see next year
For those who think that money gives you everything.
It buys you things.
It fixes a house, a car, you looks at times
It is earned but it doesn't do everything
It cannot replace missing rainbows in the sky.
For the ones who see the poor as the scapegoat
Sorry we do not make enough to cause the problems now occurring
We simply do as we can to survive from one month to the next
Looking and appreciating what we have as we get it.
Just to let those who look down maybe you should look around instead.
To the protesters of racial differences
What difference does it make and why does it matter the difference
We all share the same planet
We were all put on this world supposidly by the same source
Perhaps we can get along so we can keep the world we have.
The Angels above smile
Dancing around us
Showing us ways all around
Yet the hate we show one another over shadows their charm
Maybe its time we show the light of ourselves within in return.
Just to let you know
Regardless of what others say I only took a former spouses name
Not his property , not his stature
I didn't pay attention to it then,
So please remember that I simply have a last name
Perhaps acceptance Is the way
To live ones life.
Forgiving those who harmed one, letting go not forgetting
Perhaps moving forward and learning
Living and accepting are the best things there are
