Scarcity: is a mental serial-killer


The opposite of wealth, is poverty.
Why, is im trap, in this deficiency undertaker?
It seem like, everywhere I look; I see mental death.

People living in the ghetto's, having hard-times to survive.
You can think of any wicked thing; it happen in my environment.
Only a few make it alive; out of this render-stricken state.

To eliminate this vicious mind assassin?
Is to become a goal-orient being.
Most of the time; sacrifice and patient's, is your only way out.
Hang on to your dreams, 'don't let scarcity devour your brains! '
