Upward Mobility

By Cody_Goelz, Fort Wayne, IN

A little boy begins growing up with no money
When he wants ice cream, he gets great value instead of blue bunny
But in his mind every day is a sunny day
Every night before bed he gets on his knees and starts to pray
He neglects to listen to what others say he’s gonna be
He will be someone some day and every one will see
He protects the people in his position or worse
His mother works hard for every single dollar in her purse
He’s the first in his family to wanna become someone
He stayed up and played the game of life while others turned to run
For fun, he does nothing but write poetry and rap
He wants nothing more than to be known across the map
He makes a tap with his pencil simulating a beat
