Thousands paid,

Thousands eliminated from my debt,

Yet there are thousands more that I haven’t paid,

I haven’t completely gotten rid of all my debt,

Thus, I’m still stressing over debt that hasn’t been paid.


My younger self spent and spent without thinking,

I didn’t think about how I’ll pay back everything I borrowed,

I just spent without thinking,

I didn’t realize then the stress I’ll end up feeling over what was borrowed,

Now I ask myself, “What the hell was I thinking?”


This debt feels like it wants to kill me,

I get so frustrated and angry,

Yet the blame is placed on me,

This I know even though I get frustrated and angry,

Still deep down I know that this current debt won’t be forever with me.
