When you stop talking, people will tell you everything.
When you stop listening, they talk louder.

If you don't like my stuff, don't read it.

If Shakespeare had to put an ESRB, FCC, or MPAA warning on "Romeo and Juliet" from it's inception, it may have read something like, "Usage of highly lethal narcotics, imitatable violence, teenage suicide, and pre-marital sex is not condoned by the makers of this play."

Not saying I'm better than the Bard.

(But I am.)

Just kidding. The point I'm trying to make is that censorship has been carried to an illogical extreme. It's fiction, people. Anyone stupid enough to do something just because they've seen someone else do it isn't "misled by the content of the artists", they're often just "highly suggestible victims of natural selection."

I write to express the things that both thrill and scare me. It's solely to vent my frustrations at... whatever.

That being said, enjoy the anger and angst. Hopefully you can commiserate.

(And, really... I totally am.)

When you're given the job of putting up signs for a building's emergency exit, don't think too hard about how useless those signs will be in a real emergency, or how no one even thinks to look at them... It makes the job suck.

This is one of the earliest poems I have because prior to this, I was dissatisfied with all of them and threw each one out shortly after I made it. Pathetic teen angst warning and PG for the F-word.
