We want to see the good in everybody, but some just merely don't have any good to offer. Even when it seems a certain individual is fooling everyone, your instinct knows best with the judgment of a character.

I also want to express a bit of motivational and inspirational poems I possess from my collection. I never used a strict criteria or a specific theme due to the ability of how I can cover a number of different topics even though my writing is more so on the lyrical rhyming scheme and/or freestyle.
