    Which one is worse
    not making dollars out of 15 cents
    or slaving harder at a job for more pennies to pinch?
    Either way you lose
    don't nobody come in 1st place
    if you're broke, you're just a rodent in the money rat-race

    I understand living check to check
    and I ain't hating
    but i'm trying to pass financial blessings to the next generation
    I want my daughter's kids
    living off what grandaddy did
    instead of starting out from scratch give 'em something to work with

    I have the best of intentions for setting a standard of living
    But good intentions don't make millions
    they make good coversation
    I had to tell myself...Go get the wealth
    Stop procrastinating

    Talk is cheap, and plus the more you talk
    the less you make sense
    without cents it don't make dollars...it makes disapointments
    A slick tongue can sell a dream
    but it can't make a dream come true
    I'm alive on my grind baby.....call me living proof

    HI NittyGrit
    Yeah..you flow is very educational
    I just love how you set the stage in your first stanza
    then broke it down how you want the next generation to be a bit wiser
    and your last stanza..
    Talk is cheap, and plus the more you talk
    the less you make sense
    without cents it don't make dollars...it makes disapointments

    sum it up..very cool drop...re-reading it now

    Peace
