THIS is POWERFUL!! one of your best short poems I ever read from You! to be true, honest NAKED to ourselves and our souls it's how we evolve, if we hide behind our truth we will stay at the same grade. I also see here how for example the first murder will it lead you for another one or will it stops, same for prostitution, when you lose feelings, and the sense of right and wrong it becomes like a habit, you are empty and simply don't care, all starts after the first experience. again such a grad poetry dear Pete I applaud You loudly! did You hear it there? ;)
