our society

April 18, 2010
decaying city streets

left empty because aspiration is so steep

the rebels and the brave are the same

but whos to blame for false idols

when tidal waves of easy waves create floods of conformity

when no one is scared why should I be any different

because I was sent to this world for no better goal than the current status quo

when corporations control the world

if we want money we must succumb to their curse

a verse will not provide a revolution

but a solution to the ones who need inspiration

has a very far-out 60s feel to it.  I see the message and agree with it.  The writing I think was good for the purposes of sending a message.

Good thoughts

By the way, your profile is the coolest i've seen on teenink. and i've asked to be emailed whenever you do stuff on the site.

Have you ever heard of the Billboard Liberation Front? of the blog Urban Prankster? i think you'd like them, they relate to your poem.
