What do you know

Written by: Michele Harrison

What do you know about a nightmare coming true and a dream being just a dream?

What do you know about things looking one way, but they aren't always what they seem?

What do you know about all you've ever known as a father is a dead beat dad?

What do you know about let downs, being all you ever had?

What do you know about living in America, one of the richest countries, but you've always 
been poor?

What do you know about, in order to feed your kids tonight, you have to steal something 
from the store?

What do you know about being so stressed out, you feel like you are on the verge of a heart 
attack?

What do you know about being biracial, so you don't know if you're white or black?

What do you know about crying out but no one listens and no one cares?

What do you know about living alone in the hood of Southeast DC with your kids and not 
being scared?

What do you know about, even when you don't have you want to give?

What do you know about this hard life that I live?
