“Poetry is a cheap and satisfying hobby for all; the poor and the rich, the blind and the one that sees, the atheist and the religious, the hungry and the full, the angry and the happy, the slave and the free….
It’s not limited by race, creed, status, age…or any other social boundary and its water flow from a pure fountain; cleansing, thirst quenching, purging, chastising, consoling…
All can find solace in its verses, as a writer or a reader.”
