What is PEDS?

A brief explanation on what I’ve been working on this month. PEDS: Poem Every Day in September   I have been uploading a poem onto my YouTube channel almost every day this month. Why? Well let us explore why this blog exists, shall we? It started because people wanted to hear about my adventures whilst…

If There is a God: PEDS 11

If there is a God, life wouldn’t be such a hell. But how could he who knows your strength stop you from living to your fullest potential? He loves you far too much to stop you from winning this battle. If there is a God, I wouldn’t be suffocating in this darkness. Torches aren’t burned…
