The mould of - inside - is not the - you see outside of -

The - of me - me is the - me the me I - to be

The mould of - inside me is the hidden me, that wants -

The mould of me - me is the me in the - you see

    I'm dumb and need this explained to me😅

  • The me is the reading your poem is the me is the liked your poem. Is the me of the Paulitical poem!

  • I feel the brokenness, the stutter of my soul, in this more than any other words I might think to supply. Well done, Paul. So well done & effective I feel a bit light-headed after reading it.
