    To relate

    If you are accustom to abundance
    You can’t relate to making do?

    If you are educated,
    Can you relate to, having none.

    If you have a well paying job
    can you relate to living on the streets.

    If you are a white do gooder?
    can you relate to having to steal for food?

    Can you relate?

    Have you been with out?

    Have you been scorned, rejected?

    For the color of your skin?

    Sorry dude, I just can’t relate to you




    my first try

    Thank you all, I lost this post. I thought it went into space.

    Thanks for the encouragement.

    I'll use a different color next time, Thanks.
