Favorite Quote:
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
— Plato

The human race reminds me of sam
Used, sick and disappointed
Too old to have value
And replicated to work
To remain young and healthy.
If only we realized our feelings
In the right context
To even out the balance of
Mindless and intellectual
Body and mind
Good and evil
And imprisonment as slaves we have
learned to call liberty.

The author's comments:
To clarify: Sam is a character from the movie "Moon", though this poem has further meaning than that in my perspective.
