I Hope Someday You Can Live Abundantly.

Slow down, savor it
because what I'm about
to say is important-

Just let me lend
a hand for you to shake
and a kind word
for you to take
because I don't have the money
to spare to the beggar
on the street.

I'm a writer with nothing,
not even a dollar to my name.

So instead of saying to me
your skin is the reason
I couldn't give you cash

think again,

because without my husband
and my family
I'd be exactly where you are today.

So before you judge me
for not giving you that
dollar you so desperately needed,
realize that ethnicity certainly
isn't the issue here
but I can see it is in your mentality.
