Oh, how I longed to exist unapologetically To step onto the cold grass, barefoot To see what lies beneath the word: “me” However, what I found cannot be simply put; But I will try my best to explain this tremendous quest   The stage lights flash at my paralyzed body No char...

When I think precipitation,  I see heavy clouds; Snow clouds roll into the cold night; It’s the snow that makes you shiver.    A blizzard it has become;  The arctic winds of the storm; Millions of snowflakes fall,  And are being pushed around Thirteen inches of snow pile up...
