And you thought your job was hard
Not to undermine what it is you do for a living
But all things considered…..
Think about the Alaskan crab fisherman
tasked with hauling in nets and cages
weighing hundreds of pounds in zero degree weather
while the sky is leaking melting ice
skating on decks covered with frozen water
aboard a boat being tossed on a feuding sea
Lend your imagination to the coal miners
Whose cubicle is this dark, damp, desolate corner office space
filled with noisy yet seductive accidents
waiting to breast feed coal dust
to your black lungs until chest implausibly explodes
Who wants to walk to work with a mercenary?
This freelance fighter for misappropriated fortune
will willingly remove you from this walk of life
then auction off his illuminatic soul
for this monetary evil rooted so deeply in his employers pocket
he couldn’t reach it if he started from the bottom
Parents go ahead and tell your children
they can grow up and become president
of these divided states of America
make sure you teach them the illusion of multitasking
that way with his or her mortician like schedule of policing the world planning wars and rumors of ending wars while politicking over peace treaties they don’t become so credulous to 3rd world countries that they appear impotent
in their own domestic affairs all these jobs are extremely dangerous
but have you ever just sat and thought how difficult it must be to be a nurse?
A Substandard one, let alone a good one some may think being a nurse
couldn’t possibly compare with all the aforementioned occupations
but how good would your poker face be?
Sitting in with a Stage Four cancer patient planning their Christmas dinner in the month of May
when they’ve been given 12 weeks
with a 3 day grace period to live!
or a 8yr old girl whose body
has rejected 2 livers already a 3rd one is not an option but
all she can talk about is her sweet 16 birthday party and
you’ve been invited
I know you think doctors have it hard but no
all doctors have to do is fix you then task the nurse with telling you
when you can’t be fixed imagine the weight of the burden’s they carry
walking in that delivery room the bearer of bad news to a barren woman of 47 yrs
the doctors done all they could but couldn’t save either baby
when she only asked God for 1 By definition
nurses are only to promote good health and prevent illness
Not prevent death but some of these angelic like creatures
tackle their 12hr shifts
as if they can Trading in heavenly wings
for a pair of scrubs a stethoscope and some band-aids
Caring too much to allow you to see them sweat
so they’re constantly holding back
tears camouflaged as perspiration Selling their salvation
with every white lie they tell to make good on a bad check
between practitioner and patient and they’re just waiting….
not for accolades or accomplishments
Just simple recognition they exist I’ve spent a night or 2 with more than a few so when I get to heaven
and God and I converse I’ll be sure to tell him
Thank You for sending my guardian angel
in the form of a nurse!
Life is a trip! Or Am I tripping?
Not knowing where I’m going but I’m packed
Packed in a Society where the Political figures
pose as GOD but now they use government halls as churches
Where it’s illegal to pray to GOD
unless its terrorist season you’re draped in an American flag
and just buried every and anybody you’ve ever loved
A society baptized in discrimination! the only reason you got that job is ‘cuz that Fortune 500 company is trying to meet their TOKEN quota
they bombard you with fake grins become fake friends making you think you fit in then you go and bleach’ yo skin turning ‘yo back on ‘yo kin……
Then you up and get fired reason being you lied on your application when you were hired Saying “you said you were black!” Now how about that?
But the fact is
self is everybody’s worst enemy hell I know first hand ‘cuz even I’m afraid of what’s in me! Whether it be GOD or the devil GOOD or bad
black or white…
it won’t let my soul settle If it’s the devil look how many girls I’ve deceived
how many times I’ve said I LOVE U with my fingers crossed and made them believe! If it’s white I can’t rest until I get a six figure job a house, a wife, PLUS a secretary about three disrespectful kids a gang ‘a credit cards then commit suicide!
If it’s black all I want to do is blame the white man for holding me back never apply for a job have seven kids by six different women
sell drugs, get a fresh ride smoke weed and hycide…..but if it’s God
the world gone be surprised ‘cuz ya’ll waitin’ on the Heavens to fall
and HE got a representative rite b4 ‘yo eyes! So be careful of the words you speak, ’cuz you never know the UNSETTLED SOUL!
It may reach!
