Hello fellow humans:

If you take time to read my ramblings (however thought through they are, they are still ramblings ;]), you have my utmost and sincere gratitude!

Without further ado, let me begin accosting with my words ;)

A short poem to welcome you to my world:

Hey, You

Okay I’m going to lay this out straight.

These are my thoughts, my words, my feelings

That I willingly share with you.

Maybe you will understand,

Maybe you won’t.

I hope you will enjoy it.

Here, I invite you into my world, my mind.

I am an Amateur of Life.
