THE TEST OF NATURE

“The world is crazy! People out here are doing some crazy shit to prove a point to the same people who be judging them for that crazy shit!” -Yang Sabii- I Writing as it seems is quite demanding. That was just an opening statement because I have no idea how I will break down this […]
