How much TV in the background does it take
to quiet those beasts that inequity make?
Everyday I try and grind
out as many applications for work
but I find
that with each rejection and every month that goes by
It’s getting tougher to find the strength to still rise.
I rise to the occasion time and time again
Put myself on the line
just to be told to try again.
Best of luck in all your future endeavors
in reality my future is at constant risk
and so I better
get back on that grind again and wish
that one day before I become homeless
that someone is willing to take that risk.
