Income Inequality, Imagine

Jordyn Fishman's avatar Jordyn Fishman

We all have to step back and look what we’ve done. And I say "we" cause it's not one. This world runs on money and power. It starts at the home and where that’s at. Whether it’s concrete or grass, it’s all based on class, separated by color, collar, and dollar. The lines separating our yards are the same ones that guard the access to great education in this nation. Keeping the people from learning keeps them from earning. If you don’t have the proper label, sometimes you can’t get a job that's stable. It’s unequal opportunity that prevents us from finding unity. We strive and thrive for paper that’s not real. We got sucked into this big game and it’s a shame. Don’t blame but let’s find a new name. A name called Love. What if we could run off this? I know they’ve tried. But I’m going to give my best shot cause this is all we got. Unclench that fist, there is no order and no borders. Join us and maybe we can find more unity from community to community.
