Get, Got, Gotten.


The one thing I know is all I know
Is spreading fear and waging wars
All I know is what I’m for-fighting
I don’t know what I’m fighting for
The business of violence is promising
When you have such a twisted attitude
But the only true things are me and my sins
And I found I’m the lesser one of the two
When these battles first begin
All your morals are compromised
Once you experience your first win
All your morals are set aside
The idea of spreading chaos and destruction
Is kind of like the idea of harmony
Because the sword is your personal army
And you become its personal army
Its nice to know that two so different
Can work together for a cause
And share their greatness with a nation
That was doing just great before it all
With such a sharp but fragile edge like mine
And an aptitude to kill with no second thought
It appears that my mighty sword and I
May not be so different after all.

This kind of reminds me of the...okay, it really really reminds me of the fire nation from Avatar, where they're like "oh so you're waging wars and killing people?" "yep, just trying to share our greatness with the rest of the world."

Actually I just love ozais face and his name and his hair.i love his evil grin.dont like his ego.i wood burn his ego to the ground. he is too simple minded zuko is ctually kinda funny to me he says things are meant to be funny but they come out hilarious I've never had anything against zuko. Sokka described katara pretty well in the runaway.

Me too. I don't like Katara but I like her power. I don't like her because of the way she was to Zuko when Zuko came to them and asked for their forgivenesss. She was very cruel to him. What do you think of Zuko? Why do you like Ozai? I hate him so much because he destroyed his family. 

I agree with you about Suki. In fact, I agree with you with everything you said. 

Me too. Also, water is the collest bending power because you can heal and you can also bend blood(did you see that epsiode) and to me it looks SUPER_COOL to bend water. It just looks like tons of fun. Oh, and I've always been a total water baby so water would be the natural choice for my element. :)

Thank you! Love you too! :)

I love Avatar! One of my favorite shows.  I just watched some episodes last night. 

And who are your favorite characters? 

Mine's Toph. 

It's funny-my mom said I'm like her. :)

And if I had to pick what element to bend, I'd choose water. 

What about you?

Very beautiful. This really reminds me of a book called "The Knife of Never Letting Go" Amazing book!! This has that plot in it.  I love the way you write, you're extreamly awesome :-)

Amen and Hallerloojah ( I would be immensely surpsided if that is correct spelling) I liked your poem a lot, interesting the way some lines reflect eachother. This poem can speak to war in general (large and small scale)

merci tres beacoup (i know that translates to 'very alot much", i did it on purpose) your comment is one of the best I've ever gotten. i guess punctuation was totally absent in that one. i dont dot my i's or cross my t's either. why does everyone think i try to confuse people? its one thing to think the author is confusing but its another thing to think it was done on purpose. guess that means i have alot to work on... x0.i dont see how it was vague. what did I miss?

Sorry, but I'm not sure why some of my posts repeat themselves and others don't. It's obvious where it ends and begins though. Apologies again! S:

My first thought was that this was a little vague, but when I reread it, it seemed almost as though you MEANT for there to be a little mystery. Is this right? [:

As for nitpicking, I have none (besides maybe punctuation, but I'm a dork with that). Haha. [:

"But the only true things are me and my sins / And I found I’m the lesser one of the two" and "It appears that my mighty sword and I / May not be so different after all" are my FAVORITE lines in the piece. They seem to flow together so nicely, and the latter ended the poem very well. [: Overall, nice job. I may even look at your other stuff. :D

I adored this one. Quite an interesting point of view of violence. I couldn't really tell what the picture was, though. Did it remind me of the fire nation from Avatar? I care too much about my reputation to answer that truthfully.

You've got a magic mind, my friend.
