Favorite Quote:
“A hero is someone who rebels or seems to rebel against the facts of existence and seems to conquer them. Obviously that can only work at moments. It can't be a lasting thing. That's not saying that people shouldn't keep trying to rebel against the facts of existence. Someday, who knows, we might conquer death, disease and war.” -Jim Morrison

You tell me your fears,
I tell you mine.
You and I are two of a kind,
Resentful to what we've learned about life.

We have knowledge and we have truth.
We attained them so early in our youth.
We open doors.
And climb through windows.
Portals the sighted blind fail to see.

We create a world of equality and a code of honor.
We build a wonderful place that can never be.
We are forced to concede.
Our beautiful plans recede.

We are best at what they love,
At what we so resolutely hate.
Is it too late?
To take back borrowed beliefs?
To undo what we have achieved?

I'd rather crawl with your,
Than fly with them.

The author's comments:
This poem is about the relationship I share with one of my best friends and our opinions on life. We always talk about how we wish there was a way the world could exist without money and jobs. We dislike the competition that every member of the human race must undergo to survive--yet we are at the head of the "competition."
It basically sums up feeling trapped in a society you never wanted to be a part of.
