This is a hard life, but I still dream ( no crown for me)

Standard

I love it when I hear those rapping saying they had it hard

I write poetry but I know I am no bard

I live a life as tough as shit

Hard work, no money do I give them short thrift

I aint looking to wear no crown

But I am fed up with always being down

I do everything and anything for family

I center myself in spiritual belief

I look to Buddha for inspiration

I am an anarchist who suffers no placation

I believe in environmental salvation

Though I am poor and my life is tough

I know what matters and I share love

Lost both my parents and my daughter

Yet somehow I still believe my life has a future

Even though hope seems to have abandoned me

I still hold on to the light that gives me energy

I fight for global equality

I fight the right for freedom of speech

That why I always back amnesty

I support Greenpeace on ecology

Extinction Rebellion trying to save humanity

David Attenborough is a legend to me

Neither left nor right has policies for me

Self serving politicians all in it for greed

I still remember Grenfell and I still grieve

No one prosecuted can you believe

Epstien raped kids and still walked free

For so many years because he was wealthy

I lived my life in conscious reality

Trying to live it good with kindness as my priority

But never has anybody offered to fit a crown on me

But I wouldn’t want it in all honesty

I want my words to be heard i ain’t going to lie

I’d hate to think I was wasting my time

But I swear if I hear rappers keep saying they’ve had it tough

I am gonna flip that’s the truth blood

For its so hard to hear when you’re broken and poor

And life hardly seems worth living for

The endless precession of work, sleep work, sleep

Very little ir no pleasures in life for me

Driving me f own on yo my knees

Is the very raw reality

For me

Yet somehow I still manage to dream

I am a writer

I do my best

To spread a message through my poetry

So why not join me

On my journey

You are welcome to come and follow me.

  1. Jeffrey Epstein is a pedophilic fiend trying to compensate for his incredibly tiny teardrop shaped penis (according to the book about him written by James Patterson). He was good friends with the Clintons, Trump and Prince Andrew to name a few scum balls.

  2. Some people don’t know what struggle is. They talk a good game, but have never lived the things they speak about. Can totally identify with your frustration in this poem, Faux. Hope you’ve been well, my friend.
