Preparing for Battle

Hey Readers! I'm sorry that I haven't posted a blog in a couple weeks. I haven't been able to recover the document with the missing portion of my book on it.

Searching For Meaning in Life's Pandemonium

Originally posted on ChapterTK.comPoetry is a unique writing style where the author conveys complex ideas within few words. This is part of the reason I was drawn to poetry in my use.
