Stories

My heart
Is in
The stories
Of historic civilizations
But my soul
Has been enriched
By the cotton picker
The butcher
Meat hanging
The shoe cobbler
Great attention
To the details
Blue collar
Red blooded
Green they loved
Was when
Their feet
Met the
Earth
Below
Them
Label
Simple
I say
Extraordinary

    by the way, I see that we read regularly but we don't follow each other, what do you think if we follow each other too? If you feel like following me and I come as soon as possible, a beautiful hug.

  19. 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
