The Struggle Is Real

Image

 

Intrigued by the flashiness of the upper 2 percent

We are motivated by the grind of getting up just to pay the rent

Stretching our last dollars as we try to make it count

Acting like we have it all, when we don’t have an ounce

The struggle is real, so much so that we can feel

why can’t the ones at the bottom live that life that so surreal 

Unforgiving and horrid are the roads that lie ahead

We don’t get to have it all, we’re left with just one choice instead

Rent is overdue so they send a pay or quit

My car not is also do today, dam what should i pick

The struggle is real for those of us with pockets full of lent 

When the wealthy folk could help us out, but they wont give a cent
