If it's empty

    its open to many interpretations...life is like a cup of coffee, when filled half, we look at the other half tha's empty and when it is full, we empty it ourselves without realising that refills dont come free and cheap...I like the way you create poems out of small, simple and insignificant things in life....good work (Report) Reply

    I cannot imagine a purpose for this. A poem without a purpose is
    like a doctor without a patient.

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
