Strapped for cash

Written by: mark escobar

The thing I used to worry before
when I was hard up, strapped for cash
were bills to pay and other concerns.

Indeed, they’re priorities that need attention.
Across the length of time I’ve survived,
I’ve learned to understand in some ways
I’ve opened the doors to other suggestions
that I should be wise whenever called for.

When urgent needs crop up and unfold
I’ve to be quick to attend to them
for they’re number one and essential
in life’s conditions that describes where I am.
