Praying For Change And Upward Mobility

The rich get richer.
And the poor stay on sore knees,
With it intended for them to believe...
Praying for change and upward mobility,
Is a thing done that comes to motivate...
Those who will miraculously discover,
Ambition, drive, inspiration and discipline...
To leave their expectations less delusional.
With reality and facts to face.

And those who know,
How their success and riches...
Developed with sweat and tears wept,
May have prayed during the process...
But off their knees they knew they had to get,
If dreams and wishes of their wants and needs...
Were ever for them to be met.
And with no guarantee,
Their efforts to endeavor would succeed.

'But some are just more luckier than others.
And most are not stressed,
To have their heritage oppressed.'

~And others are left to perceive,
If they remain reminded of their oppression...
Those who have achieved success,
Will keep giving them sympathy?
With a continuing to hear...
How their ancestors were able to overcome their fears,
While fighting through obstacles.
And doing it without soliciting empathizers.
To throw pennies to those choosing to play,
Stereotypical roles.~

'Well...
You must admit the routine has been kept effective.'
