    Some people, just like debt, need to be written off!!
    Off the register of old pain and same old patterns of destructiveness and same old issues in the same old ways about the same old people and the same ol' insecurities come up unresolved and unchanged....some people...

    Some people just like third world debt need to be written off!
    Off the dependency mode, off the I need you desperately mode of the pull her down mode...some people...until you can escape from them...you's just going to stay right where you are...

    Some people...are those demons inside of you...write them off! they holding you down...they holding me down........my mind is free flowing of life and ideas-its awake and living but my body...like somebody in a coma...can't move an inch..my mind is about to explode because my body can't move...can't move...can't move...

    lo'

    eish!! (that's a typical saying you hear in South Africa all the time "eish") but you know, even though I feel better than when I wrote the poem yesterday, I still feel like I don't know how to get free! free! free! you know, maybe I need some of Oprah's "remembering your spirit" stuff!

    lo'
