Your Issues, Not Mine

Brittany Wilson 1988 (Milwaukee, WI)

Your house gets foreclosed upon, Your car got repossessed, Your company/job gets tanked & you bust up my house for help? Your Issues, Not Mine.

Your amount of animosity exceeds itself, You distance yourself from honesty & love, You expect people to tend to your every whim, but you end up alone by yourself because of your snakelike bitterness? Your Issues, Not Mine.

You talk to people that drag your name through the mud & bite your tongue in the midst of it all with hurt feelings asking me for guidance when you’ve dragged your share of names through the mud with no hesitation, not to mention, you have no sense of what an apologetic remorseful bone is simply because a) you don’t have one, &/or b) you’re an idiotic bullhead?! With that being said my friends, these are Your Issues, Not Mine!!!
