    I couldn't help but laugh at that last stanza!

    My mother used to say that kneegrows get "religion" in two places: boot camp and jail! LOL

    But, I not only hear ya on the "past due" but also on paying "past dues."

    I think its one of the worst faults of human nature that some folks only learn the hard way
    to get some 'get right'
    Are you writings published brother?
    I only ask because one the youth at my centers checks out the writing here from time to time and asked me about your pieces in particular
    so... :read:
    thats why i ask :)
    other than that... u stay a champion of truth so... teach on brotha teach on :read: :)
