The Soul Whisperer

She submits to me persistently, and Her cry is tendered silently. The way is arduous and risky, I so feared the hurt I’d be risking I thought I’d rather not take the risk. With courage knowing that it’s testy, my guide offers help that’s testing as hard to hear as bad news from tests, Yes, […]
