foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of the mind

just because i broke inside,
just because i cried and cried,
just because my world is fried,
just because i’ve died and died,
just because i’ve sighed and sighed,
just because i value life,
just because my life’s a strife,
just because i had a fright,
just because i had a fight,
doesn’t mean i’m wound up tight,
just because i chose to write.

Yes, it's all lowercase. How apt of you to notice. Now figure out why. And this poem does have a meaning. Figure it out. Comment it if you so desire.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Haha, no; I haven't yet been published. I'm not sure if will, but I feel like I am getting published when my friends are published. And I'm proud and happy when my friends are published. :) But also, thank you. :)
