Self preservation 2 Victory!

Being carefully taught
how to gently breathe.
This world is full of poison.
Poison we inhale, then
exhale out all of the
disease.

Sometimes the remedy
doesn't always do what
it is supposed to do.
And it's likely the illness
from the drug is the very
thing that's killing you...

Some of us are not
equipped with the proper
tools to resist.
Whereas others are.
And I have seen even
some of the strongest
people flipped...

Everyone's story
is not the same. Some
stories we tell are not so
glorious. But we must work
together all the same
if we are to ever stand
as one
  VICTORIOUS!

Charles Johnson Claim this poet

Biographically I would say that this is the place where I share about me.Re veered as a someone with morals, values,and positive energy, inspiration, and responsibilities.My possibilities can't possibly be limited to nothing less than exquisite.Welcome to my page, and I'm glad you stopped to visit. A wizard with words, nouns and verbs, sometimes my proverbs are superb like a nerds. Nope let's kick that one to the curb...I use metaphors and similes by my lonesome or in assemblies if this is where you wish to find me anonymously.Now that you know just a little bit about myself....I say welcome to you once again, and please enjoy yourself:-) more…
