"I embrace my desire to feel the rhythm, to feel connected enough to step aside and weep like a widow, to feel inspired, to fathom the power, to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain, to swing on the spiral." -Tool


Black and white;
Our
World has come to
This
Unable to make
Decisions for ourselves; the furor
owns us.
Defenseless against the
Dictator's forces.
We are sheep.
Shepherds tend our kind,
Feeding us propaganda and
Hoping they leave us in the dark,
Abusing their powers for the worse.
Is it time to make a change?
Quality for few has surpassed life;
Human life
Itself.
How did this happen to our world?
It starts out small,
Then adds on more and more.
Growing
In exponential ways.
The circle moves.
Nations are
Damned by fate.
The circumference must not live.
Yet it does.
Prolonged.
Revolution predestined.


The author's comments:
This poem is a metaphor for events in history repeating themselves. The circle creates the ultimate symbol of life. I purposely created this poem with a syllable pattern of 3-1-4-1-5-9-2-6-5-3-5-8-9-7-9-3-2-8-4-6-2-6-4-3-3-8-3-2-7 to represent pi. If we do not change our ways, the circle will remain. What I wish to accomplish from writing this poem is to not let terrible historic events reoccur. I wish to transform this circle of history into a progressing diagonal line.
