Favorite Quote:
The pain that have cost us, the evils which have never happened.
- Thomas Jefferson

the pent up anger
in this world
blows my mind
there is madness of every kind.

all hidden
scared to open
their hearts
scared of falling apart.

we all feel trapped
like we cant move on
or go back
were being zapped.

continuously painfully constantly
and some days
we don't see
the sun at all.

even when it beckons
with open arms
I reckon
none of us will take the offer.

because we have felt happiness before
and had it ripped from our grasp
with such a gasp
we are still recovering.

and so we wont leave
the hole that we dug
safe and snug
with no light shining through.

none to tempt
and I almost forget
what it looks like.

and these aching rhymes
are all that I have
to pass the time
when I feel blind.

“Resist much, obey little.”
― Walt Whitman
“If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar
A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer
If youre a pretender com sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in!
Come in!"
Shel Silverstein

I really like this poem but it makes me feel sad, there is a lot of though and emotoin in this.
