How do you feel ecstasy if it's a feeling you've never felt before?

It's like an old man devoting himself to a whore,

How do you know the insane are not sane if the standards were set by someone insane?

It's like smoking though your lungs can't maintain,

How do you know human rights if the rights were made by some human?

It's dropping atomic bombs then signing the UN charter like Truman,

How do you know others are racist if you're not a racist?

It's like having a great band with a talentless bassist,

How do you know it's all fate if you know nothing about the existence of fate?

It's like going fishing and having no bait...

common sense
i don't know about this one. I lie the concept put the comparisons don't rock me - some my dull mind are unable to get as relevant.
It's just me - I'm sure. Thanks.

i hate to double team, goddess, but i kind of agree with jonpenny. Your concepts are fantastic, i mean, its time to scream some of these lines from the roof, but the comparisons don't grab me.

i looked over another one of your pieces and the drifting lucidity was awesome, but here it seems like you dropped the ball in attempt to make it more appealing... great concepts, but some of the metaphors dont ring with the statements.

KEEP IT UP THO GODDESS, its not about perfection, only the journey of getting better....
