"Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.”
- Martin Luther King Jr.


My heart is for sale
at your auction,
my mind already sold,
and my body awaiting
a price tag.

Parts of me
sit in different spots,
lost and aimless
in your pile of used junk;
the aftertaste you try to expel
from your conscience.

I've sat long enough,
its time to stand up
against how you mistreat people,
abuse their spirits,
toy with their emotions,
hurt their feelings.

If only I still had my brain,
I would figure out how
to stand up.

This really makes me feel better about what I write, so thank you. And by the way, I thought that your piece Fire, Fire was very well done!

"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."

“Crazy people are considered mad by the rest of the society only because their intelligence isn't understood.”
― Weihui Zhou

You just keep getting better and better. This is one of your best by far. Every stanza describes with perfect accuracy how many people feel today. This isn't just a love poem. It's a poem about life—life today particularly with all the prejudice in the world. You deserve the Editors' Choice and every praise for this poem. That last stanza one of the best last stanzas ever in my opinion. The emotion is raw and genuine. Flawless.
