    Nobody but you can save you but
    yourself.
    you will be put again and again
    into nearly impossible
    situations.
    they will attempt again and again
    through subterfuge, guise and
    force
    to make oyu submit, quit and/or die quietly
    inside.

    noboday can save you but
    yourself
    and it will be easy enough to fail
    so very easily
    but don't, don't, don't
    just watch them.
    listen to them.
    do you want to be like that?
    a faceless, mindless, heartless
    being?
    do you want to experience
    death before death?

    nobody can save you but
    yourself
    and you're worth saving.
    it's a war not easily won
    but if anything is worthing winning then
    this is it

    think about it
    think about saving your self.

    your spiritual self.
    your gut self.
    your singing magical self and
    your beautiful self.
    save it.
    don't join the dead-in-spirit.

    maintain your self
    with humor and grace
    and finally
    if necessary
    wager your life as you struggle,
    damn the odds, damn
    the price.,

    only you can save your
    self.

    do it! do it!

    then you'll know exactly what
    I am talking about.
