The other day I was cleaning out my closets,
And I must confess, I was a bit shame...
I had bags and bags and bags of clothes...
Mind you some were old,
I also had lots of shoes,
My church was doing a Soles for Souls drive,
So I was going to donate the shoes,
It made me realize how blessed I am, but it also made me realize,
How we got in the economic crisis,
We buy way to much $#@&...
I work hard, I pay my tithes, I have investments,
I help those in need and some in want,
But I think of how much more I could do and how much,
I could save if I didnt have so much STUFF...
This morning I was reminded of it again,
I walked outside to water the plants and drop mail in the box,
And looking around my hood (sic)
I noticed that almost every driveway had three cars,
At least two,
The people across the street have three cars and motorcyle,
Only two of 'em,
Now dont think for one minute that I am saying that those of us,
Who work hard should not have what we want,
No No No,
But what I am saying and I am saying it just for me,
I would be just as happy and live just as well,
With a fraction of the stuff I have,
So, dont think for one minute,
That I am going to change all this in a day,
But I am going to try,
To do better,
I need to empty one of these bookshelves in my office,
Clay county jail needs,
Books for Inmates...
