JESUS BETANCOURT 1955 (New York)



You know when you've reached it
There's no more reason to live
You're no longer a poet
Don't have another poem to give

    I am of the opinion that Heaven is a fine place of continued living, growth and song. Read the third chapter of the Bible prophet Zephaniah.
