To see their faces to hearts desire!
But if you break to many tiny sizes,
People will fear your prickly pieces,
and sweep you away...Read More

True terror taps
on my bedroom window.
I know that I have
no choice
but for a while I

the air becoming
more and more stale

I stare each day at my available balance
And I wish I had more in the pot
I feel as if I’m under constant surveillance

They want to smuggle...Read More

So dirty, so vile 
He’s managed to steal from us all

The sky noise was very loud
As I walked upon the ground 

The path shined before me
With mysterious sights to see

As your spiritual awakening grew?
