Stuff happens, always for some stupid reason or another.

I am the modern philosopher
I wonder about the design of human nature
I hear the plea from the depth of my soul
I see the spark of new ideas.
I want to discover myself
I am the modern philosopher

I pretend to see the world from above
I feel the collective darkness
I touch the lost souls
I worry that no matter what I do, it won’t make a difference.
I cry for the future.
I am the modern philosopher

I understand that we are flawed, but
I say we can change
I dream to find myself
I try to share this passion
I hope to change the future
I am the modern philosopher.

An "I am" poem that I wrote for a creative writing class. I thought I would share.
