The Cost of Living

The cost of existing is high
Prompting me to cry
No matter how hard I try
I can’t discern, my way in life

Spiraling prices place me in a fix
Per buyers spending picks
Low wages mainly a trick
To craft the minority rich

Thus creating majority poor
Per capita distinction core

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Totally, agree with you Barbara the economy is set up for the rich to get richer always. And times will always be hard for the working person even when there good. Nice poem well put. Love Roscoe..

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.
