creepy-crawlers… by Toni L.A. Cross

they call them

the scum of the earth

not like us

we say self-righteously

but inside the hearts

of every man

lurks a creepy-crawly thing

you think your job

hides your monster?

you think your title

blinds us all?

you think that you

are so much better?

then look a little deeper

peer into your soul

and you will find

in truth, you harbor

the same potential.

My name is Toni Clegg, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
