Sometimes self worth and pride are not the same.


I’ve been in my room this whole pandemic. The money I have is like celery in an empty stomach. Now they want me to cough up what’s in there and be full. WTF

There are 2.2 million of us staring into the future. What does our future look like?

I guess it depends who you ask. For me it’s not good. My credit score is a 625. I’m looking around waiting for a job to come back. I worked in direct sales.

IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT

Darkness sweeps over the land to cover tracks of would-be assailants. Birds stop their chirping for reasons other than sleep. Mothers call children to bed chambers early due to intuition.

PESTILENCE
