Art of Words: The Poetry of El David, shows love, honesty, and sincerity. El David is such an authentic person, and that comes through in his writings. Daring, bold, and uncensored, he does t shy away from portraying the raw realities of this world. From bringing us close to tears with the way he describes his love for his wife, to bringing us to laughter by letting us kw why he doesn't wear boxers, El David holds thing back.
