Favorite Quote:
"They laugh at me because I'm different. I laugh at them because they're all the same"(Kurt Cobain).


Am I a monster

For trying to empathize 

With those who never sympathize?

 

Am I a bundle of insanity 

For bearing too much humanity?

-or amity to your dauntless?

 

If a man drove a machine

Without the instinct to kill,

And yet he did make that kill,

Shall he be killed?

 

Now, still,

Imagine he is you,

Alone,

No home.

 

Crash and bash,

And a crumbling figure

With a name, a home,

Bears now only blood and bone.

 

Oh, 

I shall return

To the rumble of the Earth,

Victim,

Inside a deep girth,

I cried and yet,

I've seen worse.
