Not a Secret

Not a Secret ~~~~~ I accept my death, though I am not ready to go. That will not matter, if my time ceases to flow. We are all seeking balance, day and the night; End the beginning, despite how we may fight. We shouldn’t act foolishly, courting the reaper. No matter your plans, you may […]

A Tree Grows in Sagittarius
