    The cost (or, rather more accurately, the costs) of freedom are, I believe, indeed worth the luxury. It is infuriating to think that people, Americans, at this very moment are happily spitting out hateful, vitriolic slime against the very values I hold most dear; against (this very ironically) the v...

    It’s no secret that smoking cigarettes is a very unhealthy habit. Everyone knows that lighting up can land smokers with deadly lung cancers, heart disease, and chronic respiratory ills. However, while the most egregious hazards of smoking are for the most part widely-known, there are also many les...

    Pot, weed, grass, marijuana, ganja, Mary Jane - the names are many and perhaps that’s why so much ambiguity seems to surround the issue of the legalization of marijuana. In the midst of all the vitriol from both sides, one thing seems clear: this issue is much more black and white that is is often...

    Women populate our military, entertainment industry, blue-collar factory floors, boutiques, salons, and just about every other professional role in American culture. There are powerful female politicians, rock stars, and athletes. Look just about anywhere and one can easily find women filling nearly...

    Frederick Douglass was supremely capable of making the most of any situation. From youth, he enthusiastically seized every opportunity in his path, later becoming one of the most prolific American writers of his time. Douglass saw slavery and freedom. Poverty and material wealth. He bore personal wi...

    An ambassador sent with plenipotentiary valor Enjoys the perks and façades of imaginary power. And as he sits and he nods with understanding unmatched, His enemy soothes him and then he does lap At his palm, which is salty, (due to the tepid sweat); Then we all start to love that which sane me...

    From 1957 hence, The troglodyte's built up his fence. Phobic of the end-times' rise, He can only anathematize. Ignorant, backwards are such prudes. Who are they to make the news? Writ on paper, sent by air; Evidently they don't care. And just as Victor Hugo spake: Arm...

    How frustratingly fecund they are, Those who, in life, are under par. The ratio of git to wit Is sadly broad, I must admit. This gap grows greater every day, For the stupid always find a way To sit at home and watch TV, Sucking off of you and me. Sequestered in their domiciles, Washington t...

    The words of others, hurt me won’t; For about such persons, care I don’t. And “sticks and stones” held true sans err, Until forth they came, from one I care About and for, and deeply so, So that her words stung like ice and snow. And unaware she was in moment, And, true, she later gav...

    And so wit begat dishonor, Though "honor" just a phrase For each polarized bystander To, by standard, appraise So when "honor" dulled perception, And thus begat the knave, 'Twas reason, rule, and consequence 'Twere sentenced to "behave" And so ...

    Poetry is nothing more than meteoric prose. Poetry requires no definition. Poetry cannot be summated Within the emotionless confines of some textbook definition, Riddled with the starched stiffness of lifeless and prosaic academia. Poetry is simple and simultaneously complex. It is both fami...

    I am never at a loss for words. I hear my voice fall on deaf ears. I see the blinded masses, sifting direction at a moment’s notice. I say unto you, ‘be content with such things as ye have[1]’. I cry for those with no tears left. I am speechless. I am surrounded by living voids. I fee...

    Oh your beauty, So fretfully maintained, Shall be stolen from you in the blink of an eye, As by a thief in the night. So treasure not What is unable to cherish thee, And pour yourself only into what cannot be lost. To pursue the physical is to find oneself, Winded at the end, With only ...

    Ask a group of school children of any age to give you their opinion on the issues of homework and I daresay one would be hard pressed to elicit a more passionate reply on any other topic than this one. School-going children and adolescents aren’t the only ones taking sides on this controversy, man...

    Putting into place a policy that would require all students to wear school uniforms is monumentally terrible idea on several fronts. To adopt such a mandate would invariably strip all students of a fundamental and extremely important right, place an undue financial burden on low income families, and...

    If you ask me I can find The hatred of mankind ‘Cause prejudice and lies Are worshipped here And when I looked out at them all I knew that what I saw Was the terminus of icebergs yet to come At quite an early age They shipped them to a place Where they shut out the sun And gave them ...

    Crazy, crazy – wait, wait Innocence or take the bait? Torn amid the truth and lies Should I believe your alibis? If you only came clean the hundredth time, Would it even be worth the ride? Blood runs thick as water But now when hot with youth Naivety envelops me When I take your word ...
