YOUR LIFE IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

The system was not designed to be fair. It was designed to keep people like him rich at the expense of people like her. It is now time to WAKE UP and re-imagine another scenario for yourself and others that do not appear to be progressing. You were created for a purpose and it has nothing to do with the purpose of people like HIM, unless you allow it to be about his purpose instead of YOURS. Entrepreneurship is the only solution being underpaid by a corporation that doesn’t value you enough to provide you with benefits for your family. YOU are responsible for your life. Not HIM or THEM or Me. No, YOU must take life by the reins and steer your carriage in the direction of purpose, position, progress, and persistence.

My Awakened Friend Judy Joy Jones

CALCUTTA, NEW YORK

A musician friend of mine lives in New York City and tells me how many homeless people there are everywhere and how NYC reminds her more and more of Calcutta, India. People live in cardboard boxes, on bridges, in streets and everywhere.

I thought of Mayor Bloomberg and what an example he could make to try and house the homeless. I am wondering why mayors are paid: to do what? They allow their citizens to go hungry and die on streets.

I wrote this poem about the horrid suffering of the homeless because I couldn’t really believe that the mayor who is supposed to take care of the citizens of a city was not doing so.

We all go to sleep every night with the grim realities of the unimaginable suffering of homeless people in New York CIty — and most cities.

POEM FOR NYC

BY JUDY JOY JONES

mayor bloomberg

is king for day

but could be

a god thru eternity

leading all

thru heavens doors

when he feeds

houses and tenderly

cares for the poor

all over the streets

of the city he keeps

reminding everyone

greatness is earned

by the deeds we do

each person we see

with no food or home

could be our mother father

sister and brother

whose only hope

is you and me

in one day

bloomberg could

wipe every tear away

with a few dollars

from the billions he saves

trading his title of king

for compassionate god

whose only goal

is the well being of all

isn’t that

what mayors are for?
