trapped in a place with no bars or guards
but I can leave as easily as I can fly away
locked in solitude and bound by my own weakness
I should have never allowed her in my life,
now she has a vice grip on me like a pair of pliers
I try to leave her alone but she keeps calling out to me
always around me, her strong scent finding its way into my nostrils
her loving embrace reaching out to me, gently curling and wafting around the room
I see other men put their mouth on you and get jealous.
I miss our quiet nights alone
I miss you soothing my mind when im stressed
but you're a trap!!!
for those few moments of relief, im paying the price of my life
im stuck in a rut and you are keeping me from climbing out
why do I feel like I need you?
you only comfort me for a couple hours at a time...
you cost too much money...
you're denying me the chance to do something with myself..
and you make me feel I need you.... when I really don’t
I always thought I could just walk away when ready, but it's not that easy
I made you a part of me, we made a bond
you've always been loyal to me, but in your loyalty is deceit...
making me feel good when im really doing bad
always standing by me...even when I do the WRONG thing
giving me strength to kill off my emotions...
keeping hope alive while pushing me further into the tunnel
you lie and give a false sense of reality, but I still crave you..
I NEED to find a replacement, a positive to cancel your negative make me not give a **** about anything....
but is that a good thing?
I thought it was but now im not sure.
you're keeping me from pursuing my dream and that’s all I need to see
I will never stop trying to quit weed now....

I hear your pain and see your struggle. At first I thought you were talking about a woman, but now I see you were not, I don't know if you believe in God, but God can help you break all forms of bondage. Call out to him and he will give you the strength to overcome and win this battle and conquer this restriction on your life.

peace to you

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
