Choose to think he can,
or choose to think he cannot.
He will prove you right.
Pac Man, Mario,noises that reverberate.
Rock, block, flap, jump, stim.
Same sentence overand over stuck on repeat
comfort one more time
It’s loud, I like it.Too much is never enough
to fill my silence.
Developmentaldelay. Axis II deferred.
Only time will tell.
