    Social inequity


    Here I am, broke, starving, and hungry
    Here I am Blind, heartless and pleading insanity
    Here I am no Color, no eyes, No Sense of Self greed
    Here I am Stuck in the middle of my plea
    Here I am feeling guilty
    Here I am with no place to belong
    Here I am hoping you understand this song.
    Here I am struggling to cope and see why others don’t see things like I see
    Here I am wondering why pain constantly overwhelms me
    Here I am being thankful with what I have even when its 50 cents
    Here I am wondering why people indulge in cooperate greed and don’t understand common sense
    Here I am thinking why people don’t stand with me
    Am I the only person that understands Social inequity and see whats need to be done to be treated fairly ?

    So many times I have wondered these very things.

    Is something wrong with people of this world, or is there something wrong with me?

    Very nice piece.
