Wasting away my youth,
fighting for what may never come:
wasting away my youth,
fighting for the ones i love.
What they never tell you,
is to fight for those you love,
you must fight against the others
you've held so dear in your heart.
And in the end
there is no fair choice-
just a thin line you straddle
that never does suffice.

Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer. 

i like this poem, it took me a couple reads to truly understand it, but i like the message that you send with it. keep up the nice work!
