CULTURE & ARTS
I, despite the soft nature of my personality you may assume based off the poem, do care. I make poetry and prose and that's it. It's the end product of what I do. I give it away for free in the hope that someone, somewhere will buy one of my books and I can use that money to support me and my family.
