My greatest achievements!

Devon Bates 1980 (Norfolk)

Thoughts flowing into my mind!
Deeper the whole of this time!
Curved vexed by the lies!
Forsaken on and lied!
A gift indeed!
Her speech to me!
Their's nothing better than the truth!
Away, with life, mine needs it's booth! Directly in front of all my achievements was the horrible thought I did not mean it! With the sweat of my hands I wrote these pages to amend!
The hawk speaks to me!
The mongoose, and eagle beseech!
Before the time of rhymes and me being blind!
I was kind until one made me free my mind!
To dine is for me to eat alone!
Sharing my plate I'd rather not waste, I'm okay just to sometimes eat alone!
Unkind, fame is and fortune!
Wealthy and healthy!
Handsome, myself the hate still appalling!
