Favorite Quote:
"We all fear death and question our place in the universe. The artist's job is not to subcome to dispair, but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existance." -Gertrude Stein in the movie Midnight In Paris.


These poems do not live
they are read and reread
but they do not say anything,
they are praised for their message
but they don't mean anything,
they are useless markings on paper
a waste of words for humanity,
they have no rhythm or purpose,
they are nothing at all,
cold and heartless.

Inspired by some poems we read in English class that I simply couldn't get myself to like
