I’m just like you, your just different in so many ways, regardless of looks, colour, religion, we still bleed the same. You may own a private jet, drive 2020 sport’s cars, I drive a shed with wheels but I’ll still hold a door open, manners cost nothing, regardless.
I might lack your silver spoons, extra blankets had too keep me warm. Your bank balance maybe higher than I’ve ever been but have you seen some of the glorious pics I’ve walked in-between.
Life challenges, you manage effortlessly whilst I perform a balancing act like that’s how life’s supposed to be. These hands cut steel, that steel cuts me, you cut a deal, I didn’t get that chance but I’m still working at life.
One day your not going to wake up, happens to all of us. I know that doesn’t take a genius. You might be flying high but believe me we’re all heading in the same direction, you can’t buy that last extra breath, make the most of the priceless ones we get.
I know you don’t know me but ask yourself this would you allow yourself too. Is that divide just too far apart, are you apparently better because your cut from a different cloth or is that a lie you’ve sadly become accustomed to.
The rich get richer, we survive. You either have more than enough dough or live life on the bread line, doesn’t mean you deserve it, just means you got lucky or faced life with a definite lack of it.
Take a good look around but first look into the mirror. Self made billionaires, hats off to you but you can’t buy happiness, love, respect, that’s earnt, given not purchased like some sort of annual subscription.
Governments hiding behind the ones they let us elect, puppets with strings pulled behind their velvet curtains. Wars because they have more minerals, why do they die too fill up our vehicles.
The list is endless, deep greedy pockets. Privalaged individuals pillaging the rest of us. It’s a shame we have to become rich or famous before people start listening, wonder how many people have the heart to agree even share this.
Now don’t get me wrong I’m not jealous of your wealth, your personal toys, your house. I might never eat in the same fancy restaurants, spend fortunes but I’ve lived, count my fortune with what I hold on my heartstrings. Yes we all live such different lives, depends how we live it that, “Changes Minds”.
