you can make ends meet.

Bank Robbery
Bank Robbery

Countdown to go-time
Finger my gun in the line.
They're counting on me
To get it right this time--damn.
Don't they know I'd rather not
Steal to make ends meet? I pull
Out my gun. "Give me the cash."

live from hand to mouth
Live from hand to mouth

More meritorious than to live from hand to mouth
With no reserve to depend on,
And far better than
Keeping body and soul together
In hopeless destination
Make ends meet
Tete era ne nne
                      ABED ANTHONY...

I love my life
I love my life and what it gives
I am still awake and life still lives
My partner is in bed fast asleep
Dreams she has are for her to keep

I work so hard to make ends meet
But now I feel my life is complete
I try to be good because I need to now
Nothing compares to my life its wow!

Where did the love go
 Love has been lost,
  Greed has been the cost..

People don't care enough,
 LIfe is not suppose to be this rough.

To make ends meet,
 we see children sell themselves on the street.

If you don't want to hear,
 The truth is what you fear.

I have a voice,
 I am going to use it.

Where did the love go????

Premium Member TRY TO MAKE ENDS MEET
I work in a factory 10 hours a day 7 days a week the money I make is not enough to pay 
debts. But somehow someway it gets me through I live day by day sometimes I don’t see 
how. So I put faith in Jesus he always makes a way when we don’t see one. I love him and 
thank him always for being there and never letting me down. Thanks Jesus for everything....

Heartbeat Heartbreak
Smiles have come and gone away
the broken thoughts of yesterday
darkened dreams and bloody knives
plays apart in all our lives
abandoned hope lost in sin
spiraling darkness thats building within
silent cries and helpless screams
the happiness dies down the drain goes my dreams
left alone to make ends meet
my heart will soon take its last beat.

Momma
Through the monthly pains,
Despite the hassles of childbirth,
Yet,you were stoic,
You brought me to life!
In bringing me up,you worked tirelessly.
You placed your dutiful hands to acts,
To make ends meet.
You inculcated in me,the virtue,truthfulness.
You implanted in me,the stand of a virtuous woman;
The worth of womanhood.
Momma,you're my earth,my sun and my rains.
Keep my Momma,oh Lord!...

NOTHING FOR NOTHING
IN THIS WORLD NOTHING IS FREE WORKING HARD TO GET TO WHERE YOU NEED TO BE 

BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS TOILING ALL THROUGH THE YEARS JUST TO FIND OUT THAT IT WAS FOR NOTHING.

IF YOU DON'T WORK YOU DON'T EAT IN THIS WORLD YOU HAVE TO MAKE ENDS MEET.

WORKING LONG HOURS WHILE ON YOUR FEET WELL I HAVE ONE THING TO SAY.

KEEP IT PUSHING AND KEEP HOPE ALIVE BECAUSE IN THIS WORLD THAT IS THE ONLY WAY YOU WILL SURVIVE...

city girl
she wears high heels
bruises on her feet
the only way
she can make ends meet.

left out and alone
no place to hide
from another dollar
with masculine pride.

shes not addicted
its the others who are
abandoned to leave her
to count moral scars.

used to be real
but turned into fake
haunted by thoughts
that make her to quake

the only thing left is city's pretty face
a love stricken lie
and self disgrace...

I Fear No Evil
Lord
hear my prayer
hear my plea
how to make ends meet
how to put
food on our table
for the children to eat
how to put clothes
on our backs and
able to walk through
the streets
how to choose between
buying gas or how to
pay for these 
medical bills
only the 
strong survives but
if it is in 
your power and 
your will
i just wanna sing and
live my life
according to
the word of God
thus the lord is 
my shepard and
i shall not want
i fear no evil...

Premium Member Look The Other Way
There is a family down the street.
Minimum wage, trying to make ends meet.
Their choice is eat or heat.
It's not your concern.
Look the other way.

Single mother in the food bank queue
Worried about rent now overdue.
Baby child, clothes old that once were new.
It's not your concern.
Look the other way.

One day your boss says the company will fold.
You find you are left out in the cold.
No-one wants you, cus you are too old.
It's not my concern
I'll look the other way....
