Don't be a victim; be a titan.

I know people
Who are scared
Scared to live
Scared to say what they want
Scared to make people mad
But I am a writer
Writers are insane
Writers are meant to start a controversy
We say what we feel
We curse and swear
We laugh in the name of evil
We make people cry
We make people think.
We are the future
We are history
We will change the world.

Meh...it was a late night writing thing ;)

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn and say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes, 'Awww!'"
--Jack Kerouac

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
