I AM NOT – ID I IOT (SunWE,3/9/2014, Be Nasty)

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on March 10, 2014 0 Comments

But after a meeting last week (25.8.2006) I felt confident to move on. A new respite package and we were heard, listened to! Not so. A phone call today says it will be done in the very way I was asking it not be done. I am in despair. I turn to my muse.

He is the package 


I am not


That is a lot

Of not

The ID of Not


ID   I   OT


I would like to be able to say


I am woman I am strong

But he is the package


ID   I   OT
