Feedback Friday #4: "A Girl"

Heres another Feedback Friday with Brooks Permissions' TECHFACE, Darius Colquitt!

Today's Feedback Friday Piece:

"A Girl"

There was A Girl who set forth upon waters of life, of living. There were black stars set in the blue-whites of her eyes, before which all populace Gasped and said “The whites of your eyes are blue.” She was gracious and grateful. Meagerly, she nodded. “There are enemies in the waters of Life” it was said by those people, that populace. “When they get you they will gut you! Sometimes, when she heard this (one among certain languages) Girl would take overmuch time to shudder; but later was fit; and again would go on.
