You Don't Deserve A Chance...

You Don’t Deserve A Chance

This poem is called you don’t deserve a chance
It’s dedicated to all the who people who took this stance…

Thanks for the false compliments saying how much you admire me
Claiming you’ve seen the talent but you wouldn’t hire me
Making me out to be a wildcard, I guess you didn’t see
That I can actually handle the truth, you’re scared of what inspires me

For a while I remained silent, pretended all was well with it
Thinking if I tried hard enough I’d get through this horse s@*t
Applied for jobs I was overqualified for, even that was rigged

Interviews for roles on my level and I’m questioned like the devil
I studied and I’m qualified in my profession, still I’m treated like a peasant
If my heart were different it would be filled to the brim with resent

So I forge my way and keep all my hopes up for the day
That I can stand tall, while they all feel small, for the insincere s@*t they would say
Like, “It was a real pleasure meeting you Jay. We’ll let you know when something else comes our way”
The months slowly change from October to May
No phone calls or any jobs that will pay
This is my real life’s story it’s not some young child’s play…
You Don’t Deserve A Chance
