Bread and Butter(Struggle Acceptance Speech)

posted by Geo Friend-Lee on February 16, 2016

First of all, I would like to thank god for the bread and butter,
You taught me at an early age which side of my bread was buttered,
On those hungry days and long nights, when grandmother had no bread or butter,
Empty refrigerator and stove, lord knows, we needed that bread and butter,
Behind on rent payments and bills piled over her head,
dreams of steak and eggs,
but instead,
we had butter and bread,
Still I Wonder,
how during hard times, with only Parkay and Wonder,
grandma always found a way to do Wonders,
yellow spread and a slice of bread,
abra cadabra, hocus pocus, wala we were fed, and bred,
Off of buttered bread,
So before, the music plays,
To kick me off the stage,
Or tell me I can’t stand at the podium any longer,
I want to make sure I give a shout out to bread and butter
Because “What didn’t kill me, made me stronger”,
Thank You,
