Folly

On the way
To Folly
Early morn
Awaiting
The sand
And surf
The one time
I was allowed
To go without
A cane
Without braces
My feet
Could breathe
Toes in sand
Wind in hair
Sun in face
Relish those days
I got to be
Free
I soon
Traded in
The cane
For a pump
That made
External marks
But internally
Let me live
Not exist

  17. We use the tools we have to do the things we want to do and thank them for serving us, even if we'd rather we didn't have to. This is a love poem.

  18. Ever since my husband got me divorced for the past 2 years, i v'e not been my self. I was reviewing some post of how i could get back my husband then, i saw a testimony shared by Marina Choas from SWEDEN about a spell caster named Dr. tunde. I contacted Marina Chaos to confirm about how Dr. tunde helped her and she clarified everything to me of how he helped her and that gave me the courage to get in touch with Dr. tunde for help. Dr. tunde assured me that my days of sorrows will be over within 48hours after he has finished with his work. I followed his instructions he gave to me because i had the believe, faith, hope and trust in him. Verily i say to you today that i and my husband are back together and i can proudly say and testify to the world of what Dr. tunde did for me. Contact him today via E-mail:(babatundesolutioncentre1@gmail.com) OR call him or whatsapp him +2348143581382 if you seek his help. Also specialize in treating all kinds of illness, HERPES VIRUS, HEPATITIS B, CANCER, BRAIN DISEASE, INFERTILITY, DIABETES AND MORE
