Favorite Quote:
"It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be."
-J. K. Rowling

Every day
I put on the same gray flannel
Every night
I take it off for you
Every word
Seems disjointed
Every dream
Has disappeared from view
Every second
I am slipping
Every moment
My mind maintains a midnight hue
Every sound
Is too loud
Even sunshine
Is too bright

My incongruous hypersensitivity
Is selective
My music could explode eardrums

I am part of the
Desensitized generation
That assiduously avoids the question:
Are we the victims of society or
Are we its paramount oppressors?
