A Poor Mom’s Dream

A poor mom’s dream crushed
And a sense of respect is born
Love for self and purpose
Find expensive distracting scorn
Love and classism stand ready
To crush her and her child
Both based on value
Keyword “-ism”
Everything you feel, hear, and believe
About finding love is rich
But poor is downtown living
A lie and long losing trial
It made me question if love
Is only for the opulent
An overcompensating death wish
Falsely paying off pleasure
Wiping the tears from my eyes
To arise in judgement to my true dream
Deferred against me in anger
And I left baffled in danger
