It's us
destroying ourselves.
Our arms bearing the scars of the hate that inside us dwells.

It's us
addictions, drugs, narcotics, marijana,
Trying to take us to anotherlife-far away

It's us
Anger, hatred, hurt, mutilation

It's us
This generation now, teenagers
We are bound to each other, to strangers

It's us
But it's not me

"Live your art" -made this one up myself. Simple, but true.

I like this poem because it makes me think even though it is so short. Good job!

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway."

Be yourself, and do what you want, because those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter.

This poem has a sort of 'haunted' feel to it that really helps get the message across. I don't really know how to describe this poem, other then WOW!

I will definitely favorite this.
