SunState Federal Credit Union

It’s like I had the rug pulled out from under me
and then thrown over me.

When things are unfair
but make plenty of sense,
anger and disappointment are the likely reactions.

Everyone understands,
But it hardly seems excusable.

I want JUSTICE.
I want OPPORTUNITY.
I want my faith back.

I wish I could depend on the levers in society to lift me.
I am too smart for that.

Money isn’t everything.
But the system seems to work hard
at keeping people without money poor.

Like it IS everything.

It would be nice to have a chance,
instead of only hoping, like an ass.

About Jessica Lee

Jessica is a twenty-something poet who performs most of her work on stage in Spoken Word. She has found writing therapeutic since she was child, and has pursued it ceaselessly. She enjoys writing even the most fleeting thoughts and dreams as SensicalRavings. Between long retail shifts, she enjoys writing observational pieces (always with a slant) of locally relevant subjects as ALLGainesville. If you appreciate inspiring, coming-of-age suppositions, become a follower. Though it's not always roses, it's raw!
