read elsewhere:
only one life
't'will soon be past
only what's done
for Christ will last

A thing i wish: to spend two years of life reading an entire library.
A paradigm: my love for knowledge and hate of school

lip syncing they approached wayside
rubbing hands and feathered hats
their sooty grime and pressured eyes
melted away at my demise
their eyes grew bright and large and warm
and closer closer near they came
fingers out from tattered gloves
first came soft
then rough and harsh
the weathered dying landscape
was laid threadbare again
and back into the open fell
the body of a dying girl

who hears the panther leap
quiet pads the softest feet
bare into the jungle night
and take me down, a triple feat:
blood, guts, and gore to eat

if such a large percentage of my brain is inactive, just with millions of other Americans, then what can i do?

"Anything that is too stupid to be spoken is sung."
- Voltaire


"People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought which they avoid."
- Soren Aabye Kierkegaard

"Give me chastity and continence, but not yet."
- Saint Augustine

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."
- Sir Winston Churchill

"The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work."
- Emile Zola

* i disagree- the gift exists and it is something- a gift is a gift- something given to a person. they possess it, and may or may not utilize it if they will to do so. the method by which it is used does not validate or "prove" its value. it's just a great great shame along with all our other shame. shame is what humans should possess the most, with all that they do. yet we have no shame*
