Perceptions…

Every breath I take,
Every bone I break,
I’ve a story to tell.

 
A story of passion,
A story of compassion,
Deep, dark confessions.

 
I could scare away the devil,
Or I could be the sweetest angel,
 I’m the best of both worlds.

 
I’m the fiery hot fire,
I’m the stark cold ice,
I’m the opposite poles.

 
But don’t you dare try and define me,
I’m much more than can perceive ,
I’m a universe of my own!

        I remember when they did it a couple of years ago. I liked it at first, then I realized it had some limitations so I switched back. I haven’t had another prompt until this morning saying this is the “new” editor and there was no way to opt out of it, well not yet anyway. It’s a little confusing to me. 😦 I’m legally blind, I don’t like change. 😦
