To invent the stories

I have no such gift.

I only had the crazy courage

To live them all.

Why then


just to tell

I hesitate and fear?

All these youthful sins

and mischiefs from the past

Some will be quick

to judge, I know.

Please don’t be so fast!

It would be unjust

to charge me twice.

For all these stories

I have paid my price

I only have kept

no receipts

to show.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
