Under your porcelain eyes,

there is nothing but an empty cracked mind
I feel so lost sometimes

I fantasize
about marching with my friends
down wellington
forcing the government
to look below,
and think
"maybe they're right."
but instead, they think
"shut it down."


i fantasize
about taking care of the wounded
doing my part
and truly feeling
that there is power in unity
forcing the government
to look below,
and think
"maybe we're wrong."
but instead, they think
"send more troops."


i fantasize
about singing "l'internationale"
with thousands of my comrades
as we fight for justice
arm in arm,
hand in hand
forcing the government
to look below,
and think
"maybe it's us."
but instead, they think
"casualties don't matter unless the goal is reached."
i feel like..
while we're busy searching for mysteries
we're missing out on the magic.
while we're running from theories,
we're wasting time and it's tragic.
A warrior can be an artist,
but can an artist go to war

Can the craftsman ever breathe the fire,
that tempered the blade he forged

The warrior-poet not the poet-warrior,
the difference in the score

All fury do his words inspire
—to bridge the liars fjord

I stumbled to the bathroom
And as I stood there
The walls spoke
They told me
"You can change everything"
This poem is about so many stories. "Everything" has it's limitations, different for each individual's "everything"; Collectively, everything. .
