John Green


It's easier to breathe
With your eyes tightly shut;
Darkness is ignorance
And ignorance is bliss.

Short and sweet, but so true. Find your inspiration in many things. Very good.

The length of this poem is very brave -- its not easy to fit something really meaningful into a quatrain, and to be totally honest I feel like there is more here that you could add to the poem (what is the blindfold? Does seeing the blindfold create a problematic paradox?). But there's definetly potential here, and I especially love the first 2 lines. GJ!
