The Haves & The Have Nots

The Haves and the Have Nots
by Amanda Smith

The Haves and the Have Nots
Covert what each has not got

The Haves want the quiet, the freedom the ease
Have Nots want the love, the bond the family tree

The Haves know their luck even though they complain
Have Nots sigh with relief or smile through the pain

Both have to work but only one gets paid
But money for love makes an easy trade

I am a Have but was a Have Not
It's not something I have easily forgot

The best of both worlds, that's the ideal
Recognising the facts that make both lives real

Neither is less or greater or flawed
Just different. Don't judge me. Your acceptance means more.
