It is what it is


Mexican,Asian,Black or White all the races fight. Fight for freedom, fight for power, fight for what is right. But is it right to fight when the ending is out if sight and you have no guarantee that says you'll live another night?

war is one of the biggest killers in the world but why fight if you don't have to

My thoughts exactly, and I love the picture you picked!

...one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love....I love...I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on. -Mr. Darcy

I like how you took a powerful message and managed to cram it into such a short poem without taking away from the meaning.  I agree with the other comments - it does have a '60s feel!

although I like it I feel like all your poems are short and have the same rhyme scheme. I would say to have more that are longer and don't have to ryhme as much and if they do more than one word that ryhmes with all the other ones.

What do you mean, that you agree on that it reminds you of 'Sing' or by the best band? Or the poem?

Please say the band, as I have yet to find a die-hard MCR fan, such as myself :D

"Where to, Miss?"
"To the stars."

I agree with the sentiment. Sadly, it doesn't always work out that way...

It does sound very sixties, short but pretty good

"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?"

Ya I totaly agree. Vary 60's sounding ;)
