|River Phoenix was someone that I've never met.|
Someone that I never spoke to,
but opened my eyes to the world.
As an innocent child corrupted like so many others
by this place called earth and what we have created
he did his best and he ended up losing.
River was an amazing person and shouldn't
be mourned for the loss of his life,
but grateful for the time spent here
and the things he taught us in that time...
