dont try to explain yourself with words others will not understand 

turn it into images

and scents

and emotions

and place it into their hand

in the form of paper weighted by your thoughts 

expression is the highest form of providing perspective 

and perspective creates respect 

respect the ones who bleed onto paper to tell you their story 

and respect the ones who choose to hide their story

under metaphores and similes 

reading is the only way youll get to me

read my story and hear my voice 

and dont forget to pay your respects 

you will never know if you are the one to write a story next
