"Writing does not resurrect, it buries." - John Green
"We are all just barnacles on the container ship of consciousness."-John Green


Perfection is only worth what society gives it.

These unwritten laws are implied

Wisdom is replaced by knowledge

Creativity by formulas

Beauty has stipulations

Time is a liability.

Suicude rates are climbing.

These kids panick because they cannot conform

or the conformed forget about them

But they forget what we are:

We are intelligent

The stars were gifted to us

But we box ourselves in

Throw away the key

We have the power to do anthing

and everything

But happiness has limits

If we forget who we are

Forget about them

And the stars that were gifted to us

We will burn out

In premature death

And a pitch black night sky.
