Isn’t Social Media About Being… Social, Human, Not Speculative? (2012)

Not that he was a rapper or a bling-bling kinda man, he was to bear the weight of time running off, before he would reach his destination. He knew the facts, the pros, the cons… he was fully aware of all the remaining options, but he was still hoping to get on the other side of that Rubicon, safe, untroubled… a victor upon his inner doubts.
