LONG LIVE XXX ?? “They may try to erase your face But millions spring up in your place. “ -e.b. May you find peace in the next now. May the world begin to understand the depths of living between two worlds and recognize that ( you) Jahseh Onfroy is what happens when one is in a struggle to embrace the predator and the victim inside himself at once. Many feel as you did. May your mother, family, childs mother, and true fans find moments of peace. May your growing seed receive all of the beautiful things you needed and wanted and be the perfect evolution of your design. May all those who were hurt by your hands as a result of your own hurt be healed and granted the lessons they came to receive from you. Only your eyes can see your heart but we feel it thru the love vibrations in your music. You were on a conscious constant path to healing. You asked for forgiveness and WERE forgiven by those you hurt. Now the world has a choice to forgive. I see you. The Powers don’t fear the violent part of you...They fear what you were capable of. Evolution.
