Blindness


‘Tis a style to say, I’ve nothing to loose
I know, there to loose, the faith they choose
One wants to be free, wants to be a king
Character with rocky ego, faith to misuse

    yes faith is a correction of others
    through your correction of your own falsehood and inner illusions
    not through the hollowness words of your ego/short but shape (Report) Reply
