How much do you owe?
I know sometimes it seems intangible
Sometimes when your stressed it seems so unmanigable
Often wonder what you bought, where did the money go?
Like Wimpy say…
“I’d gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.”
But no one in our youth
Taught us about the an intrest rate
When you finally pay off that burger that you ate
You could of bought that burger plus a side of fries… large Coke and a shake
Might even of bought the plate!
At least it fed your hunger
Remember when you were younger
You ran out of money and thought you were broke
No dinero… debt don’t stop at zero
Matter fact, getting back to zero is your hope!
But nope! I don’t think so!
It just accumulates, now the weight
Of the world is on your shoulders
Now your trying to hold it down
That’s how over half the country is living now
Living beyond their means… think we got to sell the house
Looking at the president wondering who the hell is going to bail us out!
The answer is no one
The days of “We will overcome!” have arrived
We have no one but ourselves left to be responsible for our lives
This hole that I stand in, I dug it myself
But in order to get out, I may need some help
First & foremost, open your mail… confront your bills & your debt
It’s the first step of the ladder to get out of this shit
Next- don’t be a pawn in this game that they made
Educate yourself in the matters of money so you don’t get played
To start you off, I’ll simply say
STOP spending more money then you ACTUALLY make!
& in this world that we live, when it comes to trust & your word
There’s an actual measurement for this called your “credit report score”
Like it or not you are judged by your debt
No disrespect, but you better get checked
Its just debt… You are not what you owe
But it needs to be addressed
This debt… & its time to let go.
