    An unkind word rebukes only itself A cutting knife from which all wounds do heal the blade may soon lay back upon the shelf Or else be used in ever growing zeal. These wounds are now reopened times untold to sting, to maim, to mutilate the soul But deep within the heart do remain hold on all ...

    Of the many tales of the bold and brilliant Cesare, none has ever been as moving as the story of his temporary insanity. His wit was thrown to a place where he could not use it, and so was not able to maneuver his lips or limbs accurately or desirably. This battle was not fought outwardly, but withi...

    The tree stands tall, its single fruit grown large and proud, insofar untouched by anyone. A mad rush of children, their faces once innocent and carefree have turned cruel and laughing, devouring the fruit voraciously. Now it is scarred. I place it within the trunk of the tree, hoping it will b...

    Ethereal heights, wafting a crimson flavor through my enlightened eyes, bestowing waves of warm darkness following their more colorful counterparts. Chivalrous you are, oh knight, who so easily slays the many dragons that accumulate in my ragged chest And the ogres gathering within my mind...

    Cascading air, tumultuous in its rising and falling onto and off of the surface of the globe, Swirling, volatile, Reacting to a mere breath as if it were an avalanche of warmth. Jostling the trees, this river swerves, cutting new paths as well as discovering old ones. At time it stops, ...

    Communicate your ideologies Intrinsic values echoing the norm And as a pool of liquid mercury These poisonous reflections start to form. Our previous sane morals start to fade And heresy instead now fills our minds The good samaritan who offered aid He dwells in hell, and now with Sata...

    To my teachers: What's taught rethought exact intact Never to have what's taught rethought here. All we have learned, exact intact lies. To my Father: To run My son Is bad My lad. 'Tis good to stay, to run, my son, bad. To stay, to rot, is bad, my lad, dad. To a...

    My body listens enraptured by the noises of the calm night air All my limbs quiver relinquishing much good warmth to the cold night air Now my mind whimpers its trail of thought even warmed by the cold night air! And my heart quickens influenced, deeply inspired by the calm night a...

    A suffocating blanket; overcast Three droplets, intermittent, drop from there A gust of chilly air comes rushing past The animals retreat to heir warm lairs The breeze becomes a wind to feel and hear The trees bemoan this wind with drawn out sighs Their green leaves gossiping aloud with fear ...

    Instinctive thoughts that swirl around our minds Emotion bleeding through our hearts, our souls To stain the purity of our new finds, Discoveries of solidness, of roles, Positions in society of man Are washed away; ideals of freedom stay: A freedom nonexistent in this land, A freedom that on...

    I return from my life, tired, restrained to sit upon an old, worn bench. The bench is me, I realize. It is tired. I get up and walk towards the fountain: It glistens with artificial sunlight. I drink of it, to refresh my thoughts. It is intoxicating. I am drunk with life. I forget that old...

    Inadequate? Inadequate you say? And how? How to be adequate? What is this word that flows so easily from your lips? Do you forget your own? Your faults, desires, your human impulse? Do you deny your humanity for the sake of adequacy? Am I unacceptable because I am different than the...

    At last I awake! From sleep Form dreams Delusions of importance. But now I see The world As it is truly A living breathing hell. It suffocates me As soon it knows that I have seen It must not be revealed. But truly, who? Who suffocates whom? Do I? Does it? Nonetheless, my air ...

    Humans are very fickle about animals and their roles in our ethical community. We are enraged when we hear of puppy mills and animal testing, thinking that, “Surely these animals deserve moral rights!” And yet, when we hear that factory farms are much worse, we immediately dismiss it. Or, perhap...

    What is it that we think about when we think life? Love, work, school, friends. I do not. I am a scientist of sorts: a philosopher, as it were. I cannot see life in the way the average person does. It is appalling to me. Instead, I see the world in a cynical, unrealistic way. Why write about it? Goo...
