Imitate what he wears!

Go on
Imitate what he wears!
Even memory has no proof of
When last he took her out in
His whole carreer of poverty

Shadow of poverty

Give back my hope
Awaiting for father at night with Her
Fly high with poverty
Searching for live. Immature rare dreams
Don’t want you happy
Give back my joy
I don’t want to deprive you
Rather I will make a tune, Give me your deprived
Poverty will never ever end
The crime classes
Greedy cheapest worker
Stimulate financing the societal…yet we blame them.
You don’t know the shadow of poor
I can tell you, blame your present

It has robbed my writing
Stop stimulating scientist, great life
Spare cloth to bath
Thoughtful mother
Cold, fresh rice…all has stolen.
I want that desponded poverty
My poor belly cries
Give back my flow

What is Poverty?

What does poverty really entail?
How bad does it have to get?
For some a bad economy
Is poverty from where they sit

But if you look back to hard times
During the early years
It’s not having a home to live in
The hopelessness can bring tears

The Great Depression had it all
No jobs and no place to dwell
Barely enough to eat or nothing at all
These folks went through hell

Thread bare was the term for clothing
Dirt poor was a phrase as well
Looking at black and white pictures
Oh yes, you can surely tell

It’s a time when we hope God
Is able to see
That folks need His help because
They have slipped into poverty!

Solidarity

Here we are in America camouflaged in poverty
Our minds programmed - voice of prosperity
While there in Africa we lie starving
While there in Africa we lie dying
Unconscious of respect - subconscious of suspect
Who robbed us of our rights - and reduced our span of life

Here we are in America stagnated in progress
Our minds programmed for failure - of feeling worthless
While there in Africa we are aware
Here, there, everywhere, we're weak, we need care
There's a drought in Africa, we cry
Just one grain will keep us alive
With deceit and conceit, we lie
Our bodies parched and dry
Our minds rotting as we die

We need unity - we must achieve solidarity
We need a positive program - a positive program is in demand
We must demand, therefore we can demand. We can command.

We are sick of poverty and misery
We are sick of poverty and misery
We have come to the end of worthlessness
We support each other in the process
Of learning to love ourselves, while we protest
We love each other as we suggest steps to success

We must rescue each other, rescue ourselves
We must proclaim or claim prosperity
We are taking over responsibility
As we enter, in solidarity
We are taking control of our lives
By programming our minds to survive
