    Entitled but not deserved
    Given but not owed
    Spoiled is what I am.

    I want what I want, I can't lie
    And if I can't have it I wonder why?
    Never seems to go as I planned
    Tried to get in the game but couldn't get a hand.

    Crapped out before I got started good
    Twenty-One wasn't in the cards
    I chose black they called red
    I needed O-25 they called B-26
    Trying to get in the game was making me sick!

    Entitled but not deserved
    Given but not owed
    Spoiled is what I am.

    Sweat came down and worry joined in too,
    Wanted what I wanted but didn't have a clue... think about it.

    I know most poets hate quotes like this but I must say what I think and I think this poem is so cute. It reminds me of my Godson when he was a tiny toddler. He always wanted what he wanted but he could never get it he was truely spoiled. Alll my mother's fault.


    Peace

    When you feel that you keep trying but don't get what you deserve, you get angry. As long as it doesn't consume you, hey, we're human. I liked the way you expressed yourself.
