The Apathetic YouthHe's mad that this is as good as it gets. The big house, the good school, the nice neighbourhood. It's difficult for kids these days, in a way. The country's very prosperity had become a burden, a dead end. Everything works, doesn't it? At least if you're white and middleclass. So it must often seem to young people that they're not needed. So, in a sense, it's as if there's nothing more to do.
Except tear it apart.

But that's why you chose me didn't you,
Because I could speak from the heart when nothing else mattered,
Your all too familiar with the story,
It ended with you telling me to stay.
Would it worry you if I chased your demons?
To take the arduous task of driving them from your dreams,
Time heals all wounds,
Everyone has a one scar or another hidden away,
And I am not afraid of yours.
Take my hand love,
Let the water pass between us,
For it carries away all the guilt and shame we once carried,
Look deep into my eyes as I hold you in my arms,
And believe me when I say that your beautiful.
FarewellIn this hostile environment, I fight.Farewell3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I'm lost and confused, I wander.
I want more and partake a romance and adventure.
A leap of faith to be with what is
I run into a Mountain.
Massive, Dignified, and Intimidating.
In Awe and Respect,
I challenge this Behemoth.
I am escaping from this hell I once was in.
I want see more and I am going for it.
I will not miss the hell, I curse it.
This mountain will be my triumph.
I will gain power.

The TrekThe Path is trembling,The Trek3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
This may be my death.
This climb is killing me with bad footing and nearly impossible paths.
Such lack of life on this trek as well as food.
This challenge has taken me,
I have found a new hell for myself.
I'm sick of this now.
It is worse from what I was leaving.
This suffering and pain Why?
I asked for something else.
From halfway up, I'm having my doubts and growing weak.
Fatigue is taking over me and the cold thin air is choking me.
But I will not back down,
I have to do this.
I see it! I see it!
There it is! The End of my Journey!
I am scarred and battered,
Exhausted of what I

Meaning of Life IIMeaning of Life: What is it?Meaning of Life II2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Alright boys and girls, here's the big question: What is the meaning of life? From the drift of what I was getting at last time, it seems that I wanted to say that the meaning of life is to actualize whatever values any individual hold to be important for themselves. In all honesty, I think it's too hasty to make that conclusion. To make this claim is to say that the meaning of life has an objective definition, realized by a series of subjective components. (Meaning, there is only one true definition of the meaning of life, but people go about achieving it differently.) I'm hesitant to defend this claim; I don't

A land where people dream of the Sistine Chapel in 3D and there are unicorns involved and everyone knows about it.
A justification for the inconsistent triad; He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him
A cruel God indeed, to put his own creations through a test to see if they are worthy of him.
We are the choosers of what we want to believe, what sits best upon our shoulders. In prison, one may turn to God for redemption or, conversely, turn away for fear of punishment. Fear, Anger, Hope, Sadness, Loss - All drive towards the irrat

You once asked me: "Why do you look to the ground when you walk?"
"So I can see where I am treading." I said. "Why do you look to the sky?" I, equally bemused.
With a smile you reply "So I can see where I'm going."

I want to demonstrate the power of the people. Each person has so much potential that does not get harnessed and, instead of complaining about it, I want to step up and create a change. I want to make a trend where people compliment each other instead of putting each other down, where the earth fills with 'yes'es and smiles instead of negativity. I want a world that is just, accepti
