I have Problems All of My Own


Look at you why should I care.
If you have a hard time making ends meet.
Why should I care if you child does not have shoes on there feet?
Why should I care if you sleep under the street lights?
On a cold dark winter's night.

Don't bother me.
I have problem all of my own

It not my falt that you in the condition that you are in.
Why should I care?
If your child doesn't have enought to eat.
Why should I care?

Go away and leave me alone
Don't you see.
I have problems all of my own.

In the ending as in the beginning.
You ask why I should care.
I care my child because.
I am involve in the welfare of all mankind

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
