To Batafish
Author: Ben Franklin


questioning why your here,
your very low esteem draws me a tear.

such a talent in what you do,
your writing speaks volumes
and it shines right through.

I may have felt the way you do now,
questioning the world...
and "how".

you see we are put here for a reason that can
take a long time to find,
but me caring about about you,well..
do you not see that as a sign?

keep your head up mate.
