Looking at the work done / Staring from the king of sonnet / Maybe you never existed. / All the poems was just a story / And the name was just made up / Why you lived at the 18th? / Maybe it was written by someone to motivate us / / Oh, if you were that good... tell us: / How you made it / I mean how you got…  sign in to read more »

by Ashley Fancher, Mar 28, 2009

Its amazing how small the world really is / I've met a lot of people in my life / Only a few take life for what it is / Not many people really get to know me / The ones I let in, get the real story and get to see / My life's story unfold / Right in front of many, still only a selected few see the stories…  sign in to read more »
