    Life was the same from day to day
    But I was complainin, I want a new way
    Yes I have many friends and everyday they call
    Sometimes, I don’t want to be bothered, no not all
    Yes I have family here always on my back
    Needing me to help, tired of picking up the slack
    This apartment is nice, but I want something better
    Tired of this job I need some more cheddar
    Tired of these brothers darin me to fall in love
    The the next thing I know they runnin up in da club
    Khazam!!!
    Aw da----m!
    Promoted by my job,A new city is where I am
    Even though I hate this job, this is too funny
    They must have read my mind and they gave me mo’ money
    Well okay, I see they starting to work me way too much
    But at least I’m living in luxury, for some maddd extra bucks
    Well, I know I got to travel to even find a black face
    Hell I’m happy as h--ll going to Walmart seeing eight
    I know w//long distance my friends calls have slowed
    This lack of spiritual conversation is making me cold
    I can’t stand this industry, the arrogance, the drugs
    God I miss my family, their kisses and hugs
    Where’s the brothers at, oh they all with white chicks
    Barely say hi, roll they eyes, they make me sick
    I’m working and working no happiness to evoke
    Oh h--ll no, I'm at work, just had a light stoke
    Even though I hated this job it was the dollar I was after
    And now I have learned, I can never serve two masters
    Most High I understand, what u gave me is key
    Get me out of this and I'll search 4 u in me
    Khazam!!
    Aw d----mn!
    Did they say layoff and transfer me back
    Well I wasn’t prepared, h--ll yes I’ll take that
    Back to my home where I'm dying to be
    Love my friends, these men, and my family
    Love the smallest apartment this girl has ever had
    Not making half as much money, guess what
    I AIN'T MAD!![/ :bellydance:

    I know you're not saying that money isn't important at all, but it can't be the only thing. You know how to convey a message poet.

    Thanks Rich and Watzinaname. Just not realizing what u have already is a blessing and trading them unconsciously in the pursuit of money is a deadly thing. U know how they say, be careful what u ask for. :roll:
