Waste Away

March 24, 2008
By Sylvan Tsai, New City, NY

How long will you shut yourself up
in that corner of your mind
with only a pen and notebook on hand?
You will waste away your life
With silly dreams that you will move the world
As if the world would even notice—
We don't care
No one likes your silly words of teenage angst
We don't want to read them
So why do you keep on writing?
Will you ever learn?

No, I will never learn.
