Comes from an adult mind...
Free to express itself from a hiding,... more »

They are yours...
And not mine to argue.... more »

To those who chose this direction?

And Bentleys will be driven by those deserving.

That I am troubled too.
You may never know that,
Like I do.
You may never see me frown
Or hold a grudge...
But I have been down.
So low I couldn't budge!
