''I Can't Breathe!'': in Memory of George Floyd

2020-06-02
In the brevity of your text one can read the enormous bravery, frustration, hope for a better life and dignified death. 'i can't breathe' represents all garlands of anguish, represents our cries, represents us and who we are. Nice one, cheers.

Wow! It's quite nice and fulfilling to know I inspired you to pen down this wonderful text. Indeed, 'thinking' is in a realm of ethereal that provides calmness and wave of ideas. Read or not, the poetry is already out there in nature making impact. Kudos and thank you, Cheers.

Untitled

2019-04-29
I sometimes struggle to title some of my texts; but in this text, 'untitled' is the avarice, plundering, fear, sorrow, in this world. And 'untitled' is the hopeful experience of Godly joy. A nice one.
