Favorite Quote:
I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.
-Oscar Wilde


An offer.
An acceptance.
A question.
An answer.
Hope.

These endless complaints.
He knows what comes next.
Just an unpleasant rampage
About unacceptance.
Just shut your mouth.
No one wants to hear it.
Move, get out. This is
Obnoxious and stupid.
Crush your hopes. Crush
Your sacreligious beliefs.
Do this. Do this. Do this
Or accept that you will
Never belong. Never be
Understood. You have
Been injected with
These views which we
Cannot. Ever. Believe.
You, my son, could have
Predicted this.
You, my brother, should
Have seen this coming.
You, beloved, have
Betrayed us all

The author's comments:
Although this is not my view, I fear that more and more people are becoming unaccepting of those who are "different" and are adopting this view. The piece attempts to give insight into the reasoning behind those who are unaccepting.
