    As I Work Beside You
    And Live In Your Neighborhoods
    Shop In Your Stores
    Buy Up Your Goods
    The Question Still Remains

    What Did I Do To You?

    As I See You Undeservingly
    Climb The Latter To Success
    And You Expect Me To Wish
    Good Luck , Wish You The Best
    And I Am Always Expected To Take Less
    The Question Still Remains

    What Did I Do To You?

    As I Keep Silent
    While You Strip Me Of My Dignity
    Ever So Slowly So No One Will See
    What You Have Done To Me
    My Shackles Are Now Corporate Chains
    I Am Not Free
    The Question Still Remains

    What Did I Do To You?

    Now Another Generation
    Facing The Same Pain
    You Playing The Same Game
    Knowing The Same Faint For Them Remains
    And The Question Still Remains

    What Did I Do To You?

    What Did I Do
    But Be Me
    What Did I Do
    But Walk In Royalty
    What Did I Do
    That You Would Do This To Me

    The Question Still Remains

    What Did I Do To You?

    thanks for the encouragement

    This came out of a true story. There was a guy another ethnic background who was given the opportunity for something I had worked for for two years. They gave him the chance and he did as I thought he would. Took the knowledge and left the group. Now I asked the question what did I do. And God gave me this answer. Glad to know I am not the only one feeling this.
