Favorite Quote:
Worry is simply a misuse of the imagination.


Do you recall the proverb
Aim for the stars?
I do.
I’ve thought about it a lot.
And I often wonder…
What if you have really bad aim,
And you miss,
And you end up drifting futilely in space,
In life?
Would you be content to know
You tried?
Or would you curse yourself
And you bad aim?

God...what a eye opener!!! You might really think this is really a random thought of yours. I think you've made a very profound judge from the popular saying. I agree with you, and I also think it is genius by putting it in a poetry format. Suc point like this would most likely be elaborated fully in essays and articles, It is stunning and unbelievable to see a poet like you making poetry very useful by brainstorming it originally in such a way that all the points is said fully in a short stanzas. Bravo...

It would be an honor also if you could check out my poem "death reject" Who knows [-
