We work each day to make money to feed ourselves and buy things we need. There are people in America that can’t find work or are disabled. They apply for this and deserve it.

Unemployed, lazy. Waste of my taxes. Funding irresponsibility with the wages of the responsible.

“Ones welfare should be on the top of their list, should it not? What are these people that concern more for others problems – the ones they can do nothing about. Until they’re sick themselves in mind, body and soul. Their own welfare becomes an empty shell.” – Mouve

welfare well he said. i waved goodbye, my ship was leaving. i never saw him again. this is a story about my grandpa and the last time i saw him. he didn’t know who i was. dementia had taken him. he saw balloons in corners where there were no balloons and other things as well. i hope i see him again some day.

Welfare cheques. that seems like a cool thing to say because i hear it all the time in american hip hop and on american shows.. welfare… sounds cool. but it doesn’t sound like their welfare is much cared for.

i worry that my own welfare is terrible. that i don’t take the time for myslef and do the things for me that i know i should do. like sleep well, eat well, work out, let myself rest, cut myself some slack. everything.

Welfare is never not a good thing, but can sometimes be construed as a bad thing. Some people abuse it but more often that not it is invaluable. Welfare is often associated with laziness and ignorance but if you think about it, it’s just helpfulness. Welfare in relation to one person is not so pejoratively portayed.

Jean was young, she didn’t know what it felt like to have something handed to her for a price and not worry about it. She didn’t know what new clothes felt like

You are keeping me on welfare. You give me just enough to survive, poorly, but no more. Every morning when I get up, I know it is on you that I depend. I reach for my milk and know that it was you who bought it for me. I know that it is to you that I should be grateful. Yet somehow, I am never quite satisfied with your infuriating tidbits.

I was concerned for her personal welfare, and I was just worried. I can’t believe a normal human being could ever withstand that much pain and suffering.

what the fuck am i gonna do with this?
if i take all the words in the world
and stack them,
there still won’t be enough
to put a roof over my head.
poetry doesn’t pay the mortgage.
poetry doesn’t buy a car
so i won’t have to walk the streets
at 10 pm
and spend the rest of the way
fantasizing about being a dead body.
poetry doesn’t even teach me how to drive.
you ever tried eating paper?
poetry tastes worst because there’s the added
feeling, and it all turns to acid
given enough time.
give me poetry that fills the belly.
poetry like thick hot soup on a rainy day,
poetry like melting popsicles when the sun
is particularly nasty
and the fan’s broken.
can poetry clothe me?
can i slide words over my body, strap them
over my shoulders
can i fasten them with a zipper?
can they tell the world leave me alone
like an oversized sweatshirt
or look at me
like a low-cut sequined number?
so why do i bother?
poetry cannot keep me warm.
poetry enriches only the heart
and i’ve pawned mine
for secondhand jeans
and something good to eat.

you have a two syllable interaction
Ahh CHOO (or AHH choo)
Bless YOU (BLESS you)
Thank YOU (THANK you)
And there, it’s done.
Automatic, mindless interaction
simple and free.

LA LA LA I WANT A DIFFERENT WORD PLEASE
By Taellie on 04.11.2013
Never been on it. Been very close. Living in a rooming house, six people one income no place else to go. Sticking together in some way, some how. Thinking about all the minorities and poor who weren’t as lucky as we were. Feeling that no one cared about them at all. I was five then. I’m a grown older woman now. Little has changed. What’s wrong with us?

Girls, everything I do, is for your welfare. I swear to you. See you all on Saturday.
With that, I was dismissed.
We all groaned and trudged out of the gym with complaints on our lips. Georgina and Taylor stayed to bring down the nets. And I sighed, peeling off my kneepads before I’d even got to the changing room.
