“Real life”


Democrats talking global warming and gun control
Republicans proving they lack common sense and a soul
But out here none of that stuff really matters
We’re just trying to stay alive and live somewhat happily ever after
Struggling to put food on the table and make ends meet
Checking lottery numbers every other night before we go to sleep
Meanwhile rich girls take pictures of everything they’re about to eat
Reblogging ignorant quotes they think are deep
And you wonder why we never smile or say “Hi”
Their boyfriends revving their engines every time they drive by
Daydreaming about the day we can drive cars like that
What we wouldn’t do to take the negative connotation off being black
