    Starting, Knowing less. Growing, Learning more. Some things will never be forgotten. Somethings never unlearned. My story of myself still untold.
People identify themselves by what they see, and who they are near. I must be violent, coarse and rugged, I must be angry, broke and thuggish,  I can't be forgiving let alone loving.
