Big Dreams, No Job! - Poem by Tracie Brown

I got Big Dreams but No Job
How can I be Broke and a Snob?
I tell you, I'm a Dam Trip
I can't even afford to leave a waiter a Tip.

I tell you, I gotta get myself together
Cause lying in bed won't help me through these Hard Times and Stormy Weather.
It's time that I stop talking and do what I go to do
Cause Big Dreams with no Job, Just won't pull me through.

I had to realize that Faith without Deeds are dead
And now it's time that I get myself out of this Big Queen Size Bed.
I realize that it's OK to have Big Dreams and Great Visions
But it won't work without the Provisions.

I finally came to my senses and realized having Big Dreams with no Job just wasn't gonna work
So I mine as well put on this Jacket and Skirt
And carry myself to work.
Cause Big Dreams with No Job won't do nothing for you.
And it sure won't help you when those Bills come through.
