Round of Applause for Why

Let’s give a round of applause for the girl who stayed up all night and studied her but off for an exam she was sure to fail due to lack of sleep.

Let’s give a round of applause for the boy who got his 8 hours of sleep but didn’t do a lick of homework  because by the time he got done watching his siblings and cooking dinner for the whole family it was bed time.

Let’s give a round of applause for the cute couple that everyone loves but they secretly hate each other because she a manipulative witch and he’s an abusive ass.

Let’s give a round of applause for the valedictorian who did everything right but has no real friends and when she turns around to see who is with her there is no one there.

Let's give a round of applause for that one teacher that believed even when they knew there was nothing to believe in.

Let’s give a round of applause for those police officers who do their jobs right but are shamed by those who do their jobs so wrong.

Let’s give a round of applause to those kids that made their way out of whatever hood they were trapped in and moved on to better pastures.

Let’s give a round of applause for you because you’re still here even through all you’ve seen and all you’ve been through it didn’t tear us down, not completely.

Let’s give a round of applause for whatever evil made you feel less than what you are. They lost, nice try.

Let’s give a round of applause for those who didn’t wake up. They are free. More free than we will ever be on this earth

Let’s give around of applause for life. Death. Love. Fear. Depression. Anger. Joy. Without which no one would be who they are today.

And I’m laying here wondering what all this is for. Why am I getting up at 7 am everyday just to follow a system that isn’t set to help me succeed?

Why am I stressing myself over what is 3x+90y/ mx+b because that has nothing to do with me paying a light bill?

Why am I praying for a light at the end of a long tunnel and I still have over ¾ of my life to live.

So many questions and so many applauses. Only one answer.

This world wasn’t set up for normal people to succeed. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

Let’s give a round of applause to any and everyone who “beat the system” god knows it took a lot.

And ladies and gentlemen a final round of applause to the system of America that has screwed us all from the start. Take a bow.
