Who can understand and respect me for who I am

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job Ive had. Last Monday I got a new Alfa Romeo from bringing in $7778. I started this 9 months ago and practically straight away started making more than $83 per hour. I work through this link, www.Bling6.com (Report) Reply

    Liked your poem. Sounds like you were in a rough patch when you wrote it. I look at rough patches, like a speed bump in the road. Take it easy, and keep on going. Wishing all the best. (Report) Reply
