Not A Scholarly Thought
by Ernesto Ramirez

How old were you when you met sorrow?
Her beautiful green eyes,
pools deep enough to drown anyone but a women.
How old were you when she first made you feel alive? She doesn't just create life, give it, or take it . . . she controls it
don't take that away from her,
she might not pull you out.
