    Pounding The Pavement

    In search of the American
    dream I walk in search of
    a job head hung low swinging
    my self-esteem

    It seems the darkest before
    dawn I continue my walk
    got no place to run

    It’s been tuff and I should have
    been more concerned now I
    got to look out for my love ones
    and it’s been a ruff lesson learned

    Its been weeks and now months
    still can’t find no job but I ain’t
    going out like no chump got to
    get past these doors closing
    leaving me bruised and bumped

    We endured many trials and the
    victories have been few, all eyes
    are on me wondering what next
    will I do

    I am the man and it’s up to me
    I got to make it right for all the
    worrying and sacrificing my lady
    has done, she has stuck by me
    through it all in my heart of hearts
    I know she will always be the one

    So I got to keep searching and
    making my way I prayed this
    morning something I was lacking
    In my daily deeds I thought I was too
    proud thought it was something a
    man like me did not need
    I refuse to be a punk steal
    and do what’s wrong, I got
    to do it right so my freedom
    I can sustain and with my
    love ones I can continue
    to remain

    They say prayer changes
    things and this I will soon see
    got to keep pounding the
    pavement until there’s a door
    that will open for me

    A Lamentation Upon tha Struggle for self Sufficiency & Dignity...

    It written as a MANs perspective but tha moniker
    "aqueenpassing"

    implies one of feminine gender...

    Waz KrackN?

    Nice Scribe
