No Matter What They Think - Poem by Dexsta Ray

Empty handed
Such embezzlement...
No bells no whistles no embellishment
Don't dwell on issues that we'll never fix
Mortified integrity
Sophistry is evident
I need another way to make a dollar
Find a trade and try to double what I make tomorrow
I have a daughter and I want another place for mama
Jealousy does nothing for you
Only causes hate and sorrow
Only prayer can take away a problem
Loyal are the few and far between
To rip apart the dream of a person who avoided the drama
I believe ascendancy is hard to see
I try to be another shoulder but I guess I'm a target
No matter what they think
I'll be successful regardless
I think about the pain...
The oppression and darkness
I remember where I came from
That's where I started
Not where I'm going...
The road isn't easy and I know it
And just because you struggle doesn't mean you have to show it
Still growing...
From behind the eightball to a better day
Never ever break
Don't trip if there's a better way
