Standing Outside Smoking A Cigarette Waiting For The Riches I Believe I Am Owed

I am not happy with what I have

Don't I deserve better?

Have I not suffered enough?

I give to the poor

I help my fellow neighbor

Does the cost of sin outweigh the value of a good deed?

I deserve more

Does it not work

that way

My everyday


I sometimes drink to feel better

I'm sometimes unnecessarily mean

Have I suffered enough?

I count my kharma points

I'm filled with bitterness

Standing outside smoking a cigarette waiting for the riches I believe I am owed
