An epitaph for youth
Oh the fall of youth!
Oh the destruction of innocence!
Simile of Me
I am a cat.
Silent and distant,
I stand apart from the others.
Different from them, I sometimes give others the feeling that I am cold.
However, like a cat I love others.
Loving from a distance.
Sometimes more than the people can love themselves.
I am a mask.
Opaque, I conceal the secrets of others as well as my own.
I shield my friends from their problems,
and as a result end up feeling their pain.
I am a perennial.
Always changing and quickly fading,
not a day goes by that I am the same person as before
I possess great beauty even though not all choose to see it,
and even though I am constantly dying,
I always come back.
Dear United States of America, So you think we're fighting prejudice?
Dear United States of America,
So you think we're fighting prejudice?
I don't deny that we are trying,
but we are failing miserabley.
Why do we make a Women's day but not a Men's day?
Why do we have African-American Scholarships and Hispanic Scholarships, but not White Scholarships?
Why do we call ourselves 'Americans' instead of United
Statesians when people in Brazil have the same right to use that term
as we do?
Why do we still use slurs like 'retarded' even though we know that people don't choose to be held back or mentally disabled?
Why do we call people 'dorks' even though there are countless stories of 'dorks' who kill themselves because they just can't take it anymore?
Why do we seek to fight division with division?
