The Bible can be a difficult read so / I’ve taken some time and condensed it / It’s mainly about the subject of sin / And God is totally against it. / / The good book also has many stories, / And at the risk of seeming a prude, / Upon reading some of them / They could be considered lewd. / / It also… read more »

Dear lord / I thank you for giving me life / I thank.you for the very breath of my life / I thank you for the flowers that toil and spin in field of life / I thank you with folded hands for my family / I thank you for the breeze the caresses my face / I thank you for the moon when I am / down… read more »

This unknown thing is incomplete. unspeakable unheard meeting is incomplete, / How much do we love you, / What is that about whatsapp, / You have to meet together, and that night and that thing. / That night of yours is incomplete in my heart. / The heart cures from the fear of incomplete life even today… read more »
