Peace Everyone, I just wanted to say, I have just finished my first poetry Book and you can get a copy of it @ www.lulu.com. If you go to lulu.com, Go to the search box and type in Why I Am! Thats the name of the book. PLease, Check it out and get back at me. Let me know what you think. I don't need you to buy 10, 5 or even 3 copies,(you can if you really like it or want to give one to a friend) but just get one. This book is my small way of bringing about change. Alone we can do nothing but together theres nothing we can't do. The piece below is one from the book.
Hope you feel it. Go check out the book and tell All your Peoples too.
Peace and Respect always.
