Favorite Quote:
Hope is the rise of rebellion and the downfall of nations.


I lie here remote,
Thinking,
There’s nowhere to go,
Running,
By myself I run,
Running from the things,
Haunting me,
The things they haunt me,
Constantly,
Always,
Haunting me,
They say I’m worthless,
Unaccompanied in a world of dark,

A single light appears,
Moving,
Growing,
Changing,
It is withdrawn from me as I approach,
Leaving me,
Isolated on an island of terror,
Falling,
Detached from it,
They mock me,
Remove me from the rest,
The rest of everything,

I am quiet now,
Listening,
Listening to the haunters,
They whisper,
Mocking me,
Placing me in confinement,
I try to ignore them,
To ignore the lies they tell,
They tell me I must conform,
Individuality is me,
Me,
Myself,
And I,
The one that is me,
I stand alone,
And that is how I will stand,
Stand forever I will,
Never give up,
Never surrender,
I will always stand,
Even if I stand alone,
Stand in the darkness of light I will stand,
Until the darkness fades,
Or the light is shut out,
I will always stand,
Undivided,
Whole,
And perfect,
To be the best,
The best I can be,
Me,
Myself,
And I

This started out as a project where we were supposed to include ten words that were synonyms to alone, i started, turned it in with the ten words, then finished it when i got it back. It was my "gateway" poem
