Poem: Rorrim

  I control you. From the cradle to the grave, I will own you. You can smell me, hold me, taste me, lose me. Yet you cannot refrain from the goal to retain me. You lie to everyone about me, conduct deceitful acts to earn me, learn for me, learn from me, either way, like... Continue Reading →
