"There are limitations and there are protocols and I’ve been warned that I’m not supposed to threaten or beg for pieces of someone’s soul."

Richard Siken, ‘The Long and Short of It

"My mother told me I had a chameleon soul, no moral compass pointing due north, no fixed personality; just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean" -unknown


We sit around
talking about changing the world

about how the president's corrupt
gas prices are too high
and the school system is totally berserk

we never try to change the world
we sit around
wait for someone else
to make everything right again

it never occurs to us
that we could be that generation
the one that starts a revolution

you can't change a world by yourself
so let's quit talking
start acting
let's change the world
one person at a time

we are the generation
of technology and freedom of self
so let's be the generation
that finally saves the world
from itself
