Favorite Quote:
Don't be a victim; be a titan.


Daisies woven through long hair,
Purple hazy stuff fills the air,
Laughter echoes without a care,
Disapproving businessmen turn to stare.
Arms linked and hands warm,
With their sun, it cannot storm,
Jeans patched and holes torn,
Time to confront the social norm.
Faded words on a picket sign;
Hey, they think, maybe next time?
Nothing’s wrong when everything’s better than fine,
Basking in their own sunshine.
Love is the only masterpiece,
Beautiful thoughts they can’t release,
So as their numbers slowly increase,
It’s finally time for a revolution of peace.


The author's comments:
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, then the world will know peace."
--Jimi Hendrix

"I like ideas about the breaking away or overthrowing of established order. I am interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos, especially activity that seems to have no meaning. It seems to me to be the road towards freedom - external freedom is a way to bring about internal freedom."
--Jim Morrison

"I took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."
--From the poem "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost
