Here we are in chemistry class. There's no chemistry in this room, though.....it's an all-girls school and no one's brave enough to be lesbian.


Because this world is mine for the taking
I shall never waste vain moments.
Never shall there be the sound of my heart breaking;
Never shall I heed bad omens.

Superstition is a luxury I cannot bear;
Love an ideal that is worth my dreams,
No more than pride shall I proudly wear
In my eyes or on my sleeve.

Courage only, whether fate or mortals take me
Desperation ONLY where I cannot stand this light
In a public place, I cannot feel myself withering
Instead, I am blind with my own fear of fright.

Shall I take this world by storm?
I shan't ask for anything more
Than you, to lay your head on mine
And say that I shall forever be thine.

Enough of ambition, out with this desire
To own the earth and play with fire
There's a crawling, seething mass that waits
For powerlusty men; their new slaves.


The author's comments:
I've never really been a competitive person, but I see so many people attempting to claw their way into not only society but money and fame and fortune. What is that to need? What is that to dream of? An exclusive life where no one knows your inside, no one cares enough to love you for more than the soulless look in your eyes when you demand pleasure? There is no other way to attain Nirvana, peace of mind? How disappointing. This earth is run by people with "ambition". Who's taking care of the EARTH? [BP, coughcoughcough]
