The content of this blog is interesting and intriguing. It looks mostly like a poem but as can also be formed into a song. A very nice writing from Alessia Cara. The blog’s form already is appealing making you want to read it. It is confusing trying to understand what it is yet beautiful. wrote on March 17, 2017 at 10:03 pm
