Don't be a victim; be a titan.


Shallow
And
Selfish.
What is love?
Is love dead?
Call me a cynic
A skeptic
A stupid angsty teenager with stupid angsty problems
You wouldn’t be wrong.
Judgmental
And
Judged.
Two men holding hands isn’t love?
Two a**holes holding hands is?
Whoa, there.
So much for FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.
And people wonder why
I think they’re stupid. (hah)
Overused
And
Meaningless.
Is love meaningless?
Is love a fairy tale?
Maybe I’m too young
To understand
Maybe you’re just too old
To remember.


The author's comments:
The love I speak of here is romantic love.
I think love for your family and friends is real.
I'd also like to rant about the fact that I *hate* when the ignorant kids I go to school with are all "ZOMGZ I LERVES HIM!"
The world these days, I swear it.

"To have the sense of creative activity is the great happiness and the great proof of being alive."

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
