That is on the back of my new bookmarks (a recent marketing attempt on my behalf, my social media info is on the other side)

Is it a poem ?
Why or why not?

Does it mean anything?

Does that make a difference?
Comment your responses, I’d love to know what you think
Or hit me on social media @sinspokenword
