dedicated to "The Doors"

From Vegas to Madrid,
From Harnosand, Sweden,
to the highways of France,
to the yawning deserts of Egypt,

we wander,
our primal souls
battling with our modern minds

Our roots fit in suit-cases,
our heritage blown to the cyborg winds.

We are "flung" across the globe,
suffering the tribulations of pawns
in great, sophisticated games
which we cannot control

We say:
We will no longer move forward,
will no longer be sacrificed like Aztec slaves
to these cold, golden Gods of progress."

This age is not to be one of innovation
but of stationary contemplation...
of the regrowth of sacred morality,
of the re-creation of LEGENDS!!

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complicated, and more violent. It takes a lot of courage... and a touch of brilliance to move things in the other direction."

- Albert Einstein

Thanks !!
Thank you, Auldmiseryguts!; You know, just handfuls of people like you on a handful of literary web-sites, help me to sustain my belief in my own value and that of my writings.
As Teddy Roosevelt said, "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." Well, this is what I've done... and I urge those who appreciate my writings to, however, remember their relative un-importance.
I'm no juggernaut of a human: just a ragged young man who tends to look at the bigger picture and in it... have oft found inspiration!
