Violent Ends

November 14, 2010
Tough times have tough ends, but they will pass. Tough people have tough exterriors, but they surpass. Impoverished countries house impovrished citizens, but their homes are defiled. Impoverished worlds house impovered dead, but they still smile. Suberban neighborhoods let suburban children play, but they still fall. Suberban parents reject non-suberban families, but they will brawl. Privileged teens live privileged lives, but they still cry. Privileged girls love privileged boys, but they still lie. Resilient lives produce resilient people, but they remain underdressed. Resilient women attend resilient schools, but hope for the best, because tought times have tough ends, and violent lives have violent ends.
