Favorite Quote:
Wisdom begins in wonder.
Socrates


My mouth is burning,
Aching for a way out
Of its cage.

DO NOT BLOCK DOORWAY

All sensation is dulled,
All thought numbed. The
Door is the only way
Out, but the door
Is locked.

DO NOT BLOCK DOORWAY

I have the key. I am
The key, and if I could,
I would open the door
And hold it open until
Everyone escaped.
Until everyone was free.
We must keep moving,
Keep going.

DO NOT BLOCK DOORWAY

We are a new tomorrow.
Our parents, our grandparents,
Our teachers, our bosses, our
Society can try to hold us
Back, to maintain control,
To sew our mouths
Shut and lock us away
For seeking and speaking
The truth.

DO NOT BLOCK DOORWAY

They can stand in our
Way all they want,
But let them be
Forewarned...

DO NOT BLOCK DOORWAY

Because a fire is raging.
That fire is about to
Break free.
