Backyard Money Trees

They want. You give.
They take it with a smirk.
You do it because you love them.
They have help and support,
regardless of how it looks.
You do not have any.
While they’re making strides
You’re falling behind.

They keep returning for more.
You sacrifice for them.
Then you draw the line,
they get mad and upset.
You finally see them for who they are.
You’ve stopped funding their dreams.

Some Jamaicans will drain you dry.
To family and friends alike
America seems to have a money tree
sign flashing for all to see.
Constant begging for help.
