Famous People

remember some of the people
that help put a star behind your name
don't be greedy to the game
give back to other communities to
some poor people helped in your fame
why have millions of dollars, billions still
when millions are dying still
crying out for a helping hand
why is it you can't see others like me
this I can't understand
there shouldn't be hunger in this USA land
share the wealth, bring back someone to good health
God blessed you to be a blessing, Famous people
you can be on top today, down tomorrow
can't you see others sorrow
you live in them big homes
when others live where they can
you have one, two many cars to drive
when someone is dying to stay alive
and a little child has no food on it's feet
or in search of some heat, that stranger on the street
don't look down on others like me
don't turn a blinded eyes to see
if some Famous people, would help some hurting people
if some Famous people would, could lend a hand
there wouldn't be hunger in our USA land
it is like a circle, you have, because we buy it
but you don't share it, you are blessed to be a blessing
I was blessed with a gift to write
because I asked God for one song to sing
and He has given me many
but you have never heard of me
because I to find it hard to be recognized even as a writer
Mr. Prentice B. Elsey is my name
if i was blessed with a million dollars, still
I would bless  millions, still
and I share this gift with you, Famous people
