"You must strive to find your own voice. Because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all."- John Keating, Dead Poets Society

He took a hammer to it first,
shattering it then

Next he took a pen,
and chalked all over it,
as if it was a useless set of

And a dead match was thrown upon it
creating a spark
that died out before it was created.
He pretended it was fine
and his girl took his hand
and pretended along with him.

Before he left he sat his
girl down on the grass
and smiled
lying to his girl
and himself.

And leaving, he carefully placed each of the
burned, vandalized, and shattered pieces
on the crack of the sidewalks
leading himself to the next
where he would doodle, break, and scorch that girl.
