I am a pile of mess,
a collection of beautiful words,
the sadness of a dying star.
I am angry, impatient.
I know to be kind
could still cause hurt.
I know no
it is the accumulation of my vernacular.

Self editing
a new experience.

The accumulation of knowledge
the opening of doors.

I see more

I am a pile of mess,
a collection of beautiful words,
the sadness of a dying star.
I am angry, impatient.
I know to be kind
could still cause hurt.
I know no
it is the accumulation of my vernacular.

“I think therefore I am”
