    A Poem For All To See

    I know some people wont enjoy this, i know some people wont like my taste in words, but i figured I would give it a shot. Remember i am young. The rest of the universe is unspoken for the lot of us. Is it better this way? Living among the stars. Seeing how life, whether you...
