    Can't Go On

    I now understand how folks get hooked on medication. OMG the pain in the body brings you to your knees, and you beg God to let it stop. People, no way you don't want anybody to look at you as you struggle with every step. Tears flow at the drop of a hat, oh yea emotions run deep...

    I Hate Fighting

         I can't stand the fact that to some degree or level, it is a constant to have to fight. Either we're fighting our way up the proverbial ladder of success, or we're fighting in our personal lives, or we're fighting our kids to get better grades, or we're...
