The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands dirty


Follow the dollar,
and abandon your humanity.
Soldiers committing savagery
you never have to see.
Those mad at me,
talking behind me angrily.
I'm not anti-America,
America is anti-me...

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. ~Sylvia Plath

I like it. Let's do something about America. It isn't too late to fix it.
