Favorite Quote:
"If we don't stand for something, we shall fall for anything"
-Peter Marshall


They say they feel it, listen to it, wear the symbol
I say they breathe.
The air that comes out of their lips?
It is air. Like the kind
that blows along a beachfront, cool and salty, Bitter to the taste.
Painting the sounds of
static that live in an
empty shell that I put to my ear. They breathe, and it is bitter. Harsh, their words are unforgivig like the
waves
that batter
batter
my castle of sand. And so I stand for my works and deeds, solid, solid, while they chip, chip, with their words, their air. It is bitter, and they say. I do, I believe. I have a castle and they have air. My drawbridge is up, my banners high. They say.


The author's comments:
I hope people realize that what they say can be unkind to others, and that they should stand up for what they believe in, rather than merely saying they do and then not doing what they say
