    she put me thru ya'll...........she put me thru
    thru six semesters, five quarters, and endless
    amounts of costly books

    college isn't for everone, especially the broke
    but she put me thru..... and not by tuition and fees
    please!
    but the extra curricular fees that one accumulates,
    that i couldn't endure,
    she handled-without a word
    and certainly i appreciated it,
    but our relationship had been long over
    she had what she called "A luv" for me that allowed her to do these things
    but i had a bad feeling about my payback plan

    something kept my heart from resting on the matter
    and when the time came for me to gain a profession,
    she supported my endeavors, caringly sent cards and
    emails of support
    knowing the possibility of romantic involvement between us was no mo'
    even in times of infidelity, she understood and continued on

    not until she'd left this world had i realized the one thing
    that i had known for many long years:
    that i'd taken advantage of my guardian angel.
    i asked her to return, but i was now on my own
    my soul never rested while on earth, no one in my life measured up
    my quality of life cheapened, and i soon transcended.........
    that's when i found her again
    sitting in a field of marigolds and dandelions
    the edges of her hair slightly blowing in the wind,
    skin lightly burned from the sun

    i approached her to ask if she was waiting for someone
    her reply was quaint,
    now i knew it was my turn

    preeshate...

    the applaus sistaz and bruthaz.
    i got summo stuff coming, so be patient
    maybe the wait will tingle a sensation
    in your nebula to read the rest of my posts
    and conjure in deep meditation
    thanx again.

    i feel @home.

    I can relate to this

    in so many ways, on so many levels. This makes me a bit less ashamed to admit it.

    Thanks, bro
