"Quit... don't quit. Noodles... don't noodles. You are too concerned with what what was and what will be. There is a saying, yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present." - Master Oogway

Manipulate because that is how one is great,

Manipulate to make all men free,

Manipulate so the unfair becomes just,

Manipulate for truth to be told.

Manipulate to be different,

Manipulate for liberty,

Manipulate to stop insanity,

Manipulate so you are equal.

Manipulation, something no one knows about,

Manipulation, what someone else does,

Manipulation involves not me,

Manipulation is for the other one.

Help, I am fine,

Help, words do not hurt,

Help, the manipulator does not exist,

Help, we never feel alone.

The author's comments:

This poem is complete irony. The actual message is the one bolded within the poem itself. In real life sometimes those who are in bad situations can only tell their story, what they are going through, in hidden messages. It is important that we see the message hidden within life's poems.
