About the Author
All I can say is: later! (for a detailed description). Been a long time since I had poetry published *back in my teens. Lately becoming more sensitive and aware... try to portray my thoughts so others see the reflections, meanings.

Getting up from the porch glider I mis-stepped
You cried and I felt so very bad
