Administer shackles, administer gates
Bring about change, be it dreadful or great
Be what they want, until noise has too ceased
Promise new lows, and laugh when increased

Be nothing new, be nothing righteous
Fear not the mass, when screams fall behind us
Serenade yourself, so be you better
Live for the people, but read not their letters

The crimes sought out here are not soon to pass
With no word or no vows, shall love shatter glass
Shall love shatter windows, instilled in one’s heart
Will promise be pride, ignorance be smarts

Stand aside, little one, pressing matters await
Forget your eviction on a soon fateful date
Forget what is coming, live in the bask
Forget the mistakes, is this too much to ask?

Yes, said a boy, he solemnly said
Where shall I go? My father is dead…

Is this my fault, oh little one? No
It is, said the boy, they were passed by a crow
The bird sang out, speaking loud and in fright
The shrill and harsh cry brought the young one his might

You have done this to me, and for this I see loss
You swear to protect, like the sea with its moss
You swear you will love, but it never is true
My father is dead, he is dead just like you

If you want to be a writer, pack up and go home. If you want to write, welcome aboard.

You wrote a coment on singchi's rant, and i was in agreance with you, Bye the way she has a temper but is cool once you get to now her. I was interested in your analization, so i started to read your works, and your bio. I am really impressed by your bio. Mostly becouse your commint had led me to believe you to be atleast in graduate school. You have a knack for poetry, that is sure. It is very seldom that i get that impressed. I have been writing for a short time, and feel that i am decient, but you i envy. I hope to see more posts in the future. Superb.
