Treasure Island

Nicollette Washington


Can't afford


the cost of life is expensive-
i can't pay the amount,
i thought i could afford but i never sat down to count.
debt is piling on top of me- bill after bill after bill after bill
all i see are 'final notice' 'very important' 'will soon disconnect' 'contact as soon as you can' bill collectors calling for money i don't have. i'm tired of it

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
