EUREKA

In MORATORIUM stuck for years here, A kaleidoscope, changes frequently, The mind, transforming made resolves in rear, How could I ever feel hope decently? Or will I stagnate in crude leniency, Of procrastination, indecision, And in treachery, most importantly. Should I discover novel precision, In making just one more bad omission?    

FINALLY, HERE

Dearest of Readers, I am twenty-two years old, and it has FINALLY occurred to me that I have been neglecting my basic duty to share words with this world.
