Favorite Quote:
Happiness is found when you stop comparing yourself to other people.


It’s the faults placed in our morals.
The hatred in our values.
What society finally learns to love
It comes to regret.
Where a human is born with a voice ready in their brain
And thoughts spurring from their lips.
When society says we need to be corrected
Just because it does not see beauty in the wind--
The same beauty that we do.
But we know, we know that it’s still there
Waiting for us to comment
And acknowledge its presence.


The author's comments:

I was inspired to write this poem mainly as a result of the effect of society on personal values and opinions. I also wanted to include a piece that has a blend of internal vs. external struggles and how they cause conflict.
