by Gloria Mmese, Jul 9, 2020

The day I went home, / I forgot how to ramble and roam / / In this scenario- / The universe became rude, / with bitterness in its truth / / The world unites for social fight, / with hope to heal and have everything right / / Some have shelter, some still starve, / some are with family some still desire… read more »
