I am a poet more than human
I live in harmony and peace
I murmurs the words of wisdom
I will listen to you and at the
same time, I may not listen
I will see you but at the same
time, I will be in my dreams.
I care about the lives of unspoken
and I don't compete
Somedays I write when I feel
and somedays, feeling writes me...
