Cantrice scripted a harsh, but realistic life-lesson that many people take too long to learn. Is love really love when you have to totally compromise?
Oneal Walters' The Age Begin is a fascinating collection of poetry that is more introspective social commentary that artistic drivel. This collection of poetry deals with the reality of shaky relationships and the struggle to maintain artistic integrity while proving profitability in the… Continue

In a perfect paradise
Acouple paid the ultimate price
Trading a piece of fruit for a lie
There insatiable appetite
Showed there Gluttonoues ways

Became puffed up with pride
Now known as the father of the lie
But pride comes before the fall
