corners become mii
and i lose the freedom to say no
and so i strike,
hard and swift at anyone,
at anything that threatens
my need to say yes

Hi You!
I wont say I understood the poem well enough so I wont comment about it :-)

Enjoyed reading the "Cleaning out my closet, part 2" and realized that it is good to be different. LOL @ the "I love to cry" part.

@ Rita, hmmm i do love to cry it used to drive my sisters nuts when we were younger cuz they could never understand it or predict when it would start. the poem stems from the dirty closest so it's okay :)

u should be able to cry a river if u would be paid for it then. lol

love the poem, and i can put a meaning to it, that might differ from yours. anyway, poems always mean differnt things to different people.

seems like you've been doing more than just academics on yorktown. nevertheless, i suppose this compensates for that overdue q&a.

@ thefriend: no it doesn't

@ Writefreak: okay so here is the story. i like feeling like i have the right to agree and that i was not manipulated into that position. in most cases i am going to agree with whatever it is that a person wants mii to do but the moment they back mii in the corner i strike, forgetting that i had no problem with situation in the first place

so basically
i like feeling i can say no even if i was going to say yes, but the moment u take that right away from mii i FLIP
