Welfare “Servants” I Think Not

I Know He Cares

I Know He Cares

Welfare Servants I think not
Just a number on their clock
Why did you choose to serve the public
We burden you are you above us?

Pressure pounding in my brain
Head exploding insane in pain
No relief I take the steps
The Puppet Master toys with my head

I do my part God is my witness
It’s not my fault I’m plagued with sickness
The hoops I jump a “servants” toy
With no health and food I’m raising boys

I play by the rules, I do it right
Character, morals with ethics I fight
A system that I’m just a number
I’m not you bastards I’m going under

Mental illness you stop my meds
cut off, no notice, rejected you said
slammed the door, what’s it to you?
You don’t live in my head you think boo hoo

Food stamps cut slammed the iron gate
A phone call missed is now my fate
I suit up show up take all the steps
God help me now, down spirals next

This system NEEDED unjustly ignores
I’m paperwork, another chore
Social Servant I think not
Collecting their pay while I have not

I don’t have time to play their games
Quickly I’m slipping into insane
I am the good girl I did it right
Educated, working, single Mom I fight

Into an abyss the endless spiral
Spinning falling going under
Mental hospital a luxury
All I have is to get on my knees

I call and call and call for help
My Puppet Master is always “out”.
I’m sorry boys, Mommy’s sick
Just eggs and milk and bread that’s it.

Mercy Mercy I cry out to you
Who are these “servants” they’re cruel that’s who
I’m just another needy face
What they don’t think is I run the race.

More than them to keep the pace
Survivals not living is existing space
A system that keeps fucking me over
We suffer, I’m sick, my boys… I’m sorry


I am a writer, poet, humorist, screenwriter, blogger. I am not a label. Out of tragedy comes comedy. I see hysterical in the simple. This is my head. I live an extraordinary ordinary life. I am inspired, creative, passionate and fiery. I have been through and will continue. I will put it down and hope you pick it up. I am exposed, vulnerable, honest and authentic. I am sarcastic and witty. My favorite thing to do is watch life and laugh and cry and start over again. I invite you to laugh, release and lighten up with me. When life has kicked your butt, it's all about the comedy! Comedy fuels me, poetry soothes me, and dancing ignites...
