Hungry for Food, Starving for Change

I'm not Nikki Minaj, no my name is Kim.
I'm 49 years young - my situation grim
You know things iz bad when grandma pens a rap song
But if you share my pain, you can sing along

I need stable housing...food and a phone
Normally I take care of this all on my own
But my back is injured-opportunities few
Haven't eaten in days...don't know what to do

Homeless for a spell, now back inside
Rent is due again-no place to hide
I got 2 good jobs if I can keep the phone on
But once I pay for housing, money's all gone

I'm hungry for food but STARVING for change
Tryin to pick myself up, tryin to rearrange
Could use a little help if you got some in your heart
It's not a solution, but it's a damn good start

Telemarketing is far outside my comfort zone
But when the service is running I am workin' that phone
Doin my best but my best is not doin it
Things were movin forward...lack of funds tryin to ruin it

In my former existence - digital designer by trade
Without a computer that's gone I'm afraid
Lookin for a hand up, not a hand out
If you feel my rhyme, give this girl a shout

(It's hard out here for a geek. I say it's hard out here for a geek...)


Translation: I was homeless due to job loss and medical issues. I am now in a pay by the week efficiency apt. I have two telemarketing jobs I can do from home if I can keep my home, and keep my phone on. I also need food...haven't eaten much this past week.

I put $5000 as my goal because this amount will get me moved to a more stable housing situation where I am paying monthly instead of weekly and provide the cushion I need to rise up to self sufficiency again. My job options are limited because of my back injury. I will use part of the money to purchase a computer so I can get back into digital design and carve out additional income opportunities.

Thank you for enduring my rap song. I am trying to keep smiling through all of this. Laughter is the best medicine. Blessings and peace to you all.
