The little people


I started to write this for St. Patricks day

But as it so often happens

My writing takes on a mind all its own

And often where it goes is more important

Than anything I could have known

As many years went by, we thought little people were

Leprechauns, fairies, elves and dwafts and the like

Many of us do not believe they even exist

And discussing it is something they don't even like

But things are not always what they seem

And who are we to say, what is a fantasy or to step on

someones dreams

But as my mind wanders, it's really this I decide

That in this day and age little people seem to have nothing

to do with our size

The little people in this century are people just like you and me

Our appearance doesn't seem to matter at all, you see

We are the people who must go along with decisions others make

The very decisions, that are made by the powerful few

We are the people who struggle to get along from day to day

And hope that some decisions will be made to help us in some way

The ones who try so hard to make ends meet and stay strong

The little people do not have to be big or small

We are the ones who keep trying, though everything seems to

go wrong

Our size or number does not seem to matter

We are the ones who try so hard to get along

We are thin, fat, short or tall

And yet to those who make the laws we appear quite small

The little people, are just like fairy's and leprechauns when the

big people make the laws

Us middle class seem to becoming invisible too

We pay taxes, just like the big people do

And usually get less tax breaks too

Are we to become the invisible few?

The forgotten ones

The poor and middle class so often are left out

The ones who get caught in so many wars

The ones who suffer most when the budget goes over

And they begin to cut costs

We the little people...Should we not be thought about too

Us little people struggle through life just to get ahead

We don't wish to be on welfare

So we try to find ways to survive instead

Some of us our getting old now

Some of us go without medicine, heat or food

Some of us in bet-weens are now without medical at all

Shouldn't we have some Quality in our life and thrive

Are we to be looked at as unimportant and small

Not poor enough for medical help or old enough for

social security

How big do you have to be to be noticed?

Must we be the ones who fall

Caught up in society's laws, not noticed at all

And prey please tell me

What would all the big people do without us little people?

I wonder if they ever asked themselves that

We are nurses, waitress, secretary's, mechanics solder's,

And the list goes on and on

Isn't that a fact

The blue collar workers are necessary, as are so many

other things that us little people do

Isn't it time we received more encouragement?

Became noticed

Aren't we important too?

Because without us little people

What would all those big people do?

love is all...jaz

Happy Saint Patricks day

Irish or not

I hope you find your pot of gold

In everything you do

From one little person to another

Sending love and blessings to all of you...
