A Spoken Word Piece

Wheels on the bus go ROUND and ROUND

Don't give a rip about the city or TOWN
Wishin’ a family would be AROUND

JUGGLIN life like a circus CLOWN
STRUGGLIN to survive
To stay above GROUND

Movin’ through life like a freight TRAIN
Strivin’ all to get GAIN
On the wheel to avoid the PAIN

Can only see what oughta BE
Livin’ in regret and can't SEE
Pushing past the pain to just BE

Just EXISTING
Constantly RESISTING
Knowing somethin's MISSING

It's name is POVERTY
not just a financial REALITY
It's all about ME

It's a MENTALITY
The feelin’ is URGENCY
Just for some CLARTY

It ends in FUTILITY

It's name is SLAVERY

It looks like HUMILIATION
It has robbed a NATION
Time to change the STATION

Enough is ENOUGH
Got it real ROUGH
It's made young and old TOUGH

Then there was ONE

He came in HUMILITY
In his SOVEREIGNTY
To fulfill a DESTINY

He was born in a STABLE
He removed your LABEL
He calls you ABLE

To contribute to SOCIETY

Say no to TRAFFICKING
Stop the BULLYING
Rescue the DYING

Removing the OPPRESSION
Pushing off DEPRESSION
Reversing the RECESSION

Use the CREATIVITY to
Meet the NEED to
Plant a SEED

Begin by LIVING
Attain through GIVING

It's not about YOU
Don't be a FOOL
Create new RULES

Change the MIND
It's the TIME
