"if you're not 1st you're last"


Limits they call them.
Reality they say.
Just more propaganda to control the stem cells of society

To turn us into mindless zombies,
Riding the way of conformity
That crashes against the shores of our laziness.
Drowning the fighters

And the dreamers

And the freethinkers

The drone of their hunger rings in our ears.
The taste of our blood drips from their mouths.

With each passing day we lose a member.
With each passing month we lose a battle.
With each passing year we get closer and closer to losing the war.

I think people forget that humans are animals too.

I love this one. It is writing I can very much relate to my own. I enjoy seeing the fact that someone else is able to interpret the world the way I do.

Another awesome poem!! Again, here's another poem with a powerful message. My favorite part is the middle section. I'm bookmarking this poem only because TeenInk won't let me favorite anymore poems, but I'll try to see if I can get another one on there. Again, AMAZING job!!

I love the description here! I don't totally understand what it's talking about though. Then again, I don't always know what I'm talking about. Anyway, nice work!

Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow it's mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.

This is awesome! I had to add it to my favorites. I agree with the other reviewer who said it felt like a song. It flowed so well it began to pick up a rythm in my mind. The ending was especially powerful. Nice job!

Well I live in the US so i wouldn't know about that in preticular, but I think its one think to dress for the occation or event and simply just change who you are to fit in or because someone tells you to. To me there would never a reason why you can't be who you are or what you want to be. Eventhough a lot of us are made to feel like we have to be a certain way and a certain person. And what/ who that person is is always changing. That is the internal war we all at some piont fight.

Reminds me of those Sci-Fi doomsday prediction novels. You know, Dystopia and all that.

Very Stark image I must say. Quite unsettling.
