    Have they ever took your job away?
    sent you to the door?

    your all used up.. sorry but we don't need you any more?

    Have they ever talked about you?
    and thought you didn't hear?

    but really if they knew the truth they would know you are aware?

    Have they ever said your nothing?
    when they really knew better then that?

    have they ever call'd you a dog when you really are a cat?

    Have you ever been starving... and couldn't get a meal?
    Have you ever felt degraded from their hateful stare?

    Have you ever been homeless and have no where to live?
    Have you ever just stop'd and cried about all the things they did?

    Have you ever asked yourself these questions?
    And threw your hands up in the air?

    I guess what I'm asking is when did you realize...

    That they just don't care?

    oh yes i can relate
    had all this on my daily plate
    i knew from the start they didn't care
    yet i worked with all this to bare
    each look took on it own hate
    but not once did it seal my fate
    i realized and rised above it all to an outstanding ending

    I feel ya sis

    And for every hateful glare, demeaning comment and more, we still manage to soar. So many can relate, for sure.
