Favorite Quote:
And before our world goes over the brink,
Teach the believers how to think.

-Philip Appleman

My only comforts are my
Books, brief walks,
And knowledge:
That one day I'll be free.

Forced to wait,
I sit and think.
About my life...
Of my condition...
The complacent, patient, pond'ring
Of a slave.

The author's comments:
I'm not one to complain, or to moan and groan, often. Nonetheless, I feel trapped sometimes, and this poem was a result of that.
