i live

i live life for the have- nots
who have no hope in life
i live for the homeless
who have no shelter or no food at night
my life is complex
but yet in still
i shine light on the youth
and older cizitens because
of my real will
i do things and dream big for
the little boys and girls who live in
a single parent home with no dad,
no lights, no water, and nothing else to eat because of low wealth
i give my soul to my world and my old
earth(mother) because its only right for me to put her first
its like i am willing to die to stop
all the crying and hurt
so close your eyes and see if you can see
what this is worth... i live... i live... i live...
