Don’t disrespect another person’s hustle

For the world to put you down, it first needs you to give it permission.

Zat Rana

Never disrespect another person’s hustle
As long as it doesn’t make anyone in pain scowl
Do not disrespect another man’s hustle
For it is how they put rice in their bowl.

Never disrespect another man’s hustle
As long as it does not do anyone foul
Do not disrespect another person’s hustle
For it’s how they make sure their stomach doesn’t growl.

Never disrespect another person’s hustle
Just cause they have not a big office to prowl
Does not mean you should disrespect their hustle
For their hustle is what put some of us through school.
