    all eyes on me
    but they’re not watching my back
    they’re watching my pockets
    ready to attack
    looking out for themselves
    but I see through all that

    resources are limited
    but still they take from me
    i’ve leant so many helping hands
    that I’m immune to the finger pointing
    go ahead and blame me
    i knew it was coming
    i guess its my fault
    you have more month than money

    i’m hip to the game
    and on to your scheme
    i recognize hard work
    and it doesn’t wear designer jeans
    you have an childish appetite
    that looks just like greed
    maturity know the difference
    between wants and needs
    so I suggest you watch your mouth
    before you start complaining

    it used to be:
    what can I do to help
    now I realize
    i can’t give you
    what u don’t want yourself

    fish
    a Hustle or some business sense

    the only fish you have
    is sel-FISH-ness
    and I’ll be damned
    if I keep on being SELF-less
    i’m a little too smart
    not to use common sense
    and you’re a little too grown
    for me to be babysit

    get off your blessed assurance
    and start making moves
    make up your bed
    make up your mind
    make a phone call or 2
    make up for the lost time
    that a grown man shouldn’t lose

    now if you’ll excuse me daddy

    i’ve got more
    FISH-ing
    to do

    "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.
    Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"
    ~Chinese Proverb
