    Recent poem I had written in an attempt to vent.

    Families on the street due to job loss and lease rise
    kids turn to gangs while the leader claims the peace prize
    media thrive off pain to make a dollar they release lies
    fast food ads so loud they can't hear a kid's obese cries
    freedom forbidden for those gagged and tied up
    our men end up with their toes tagged or lined up
    children starve to death as they watch the wealthy feast
    too many unanswered questions with the war in the Middle East
    government caught supplying guns to keep the drug war alive
    those looking to cross the border reach death before they arrive
    children having children, we've reached an epidemic
    the only education received is guaranteed non-academic
    getting fined for crossing streets that your tax money built
    then introduce carbon tax and blame environmental guilt
    women getting stoned to death for turning down a vulture
    'cause refusing arranged marriages is betraying ones culture
    the words they class as wisdom is just decomposing truth
    cover ups used to silence those with the exposing proof
    are these problems all political, are we thinking analytical
    why do we seek answers from the weak and hypocritical
    release a victim's photo, protect a killer with facial blurs
    hope the future generations aren't victims of racial slurs
    domestic violence shouldn't exist but cowards choose to converse with their fist
    rapists walk with no cuffs on their wrist as others still make the most wanted list
    making money is a clear addiction, to speak our mind is a near restriction
    crime so high they don't fear conviction, time to stand and start to steer prediction.

    Cali girl calls herself a 'writer'. She watches Glenn Beck and then writes about it, but says it is a secret source.

    She is jealous of real writing.

    You know what's funny.... that you have the audacity to claim you know more about my life than I do. How moronic does that make you? :lol:

    Loser. And... Liar.

    I notice you didn't have a quote from some 'thinker' to back up your ridiculous bullshit. :lol::lol:

    Pay no attention to Cali Girl, given her negativity she must lead a bitter, narrow life and is in need of our consideration and sympathy.

    Shame this turned personal rather than stayed observant of the repeats and small changes in our culture. Often though, when reading history, it seems little has changed or maybe it has, we no longer hang or kill people or treat them as lesser humans in most of the world. Given we have another 5 billion years or so before the sun burns out, maybe we'll improve, maybe.

    "If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what a people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. Men may not get all they pay for in this world; but they must pay for all they get. If we ever get free from all the oppressions and wrongs heaped upon us, we must pay for their removal. We must do this by labor, by suffering, by sacrifice, and, if needs be, by our lives, and the lives of others." Frederick Douglass

    I know enough by your response that I hit a nerve. I have enough knowledge of mankind to understand how beliefs and dogma manifests.

    I hope you were able to release some of those feelings in that vent. They are quite raw considering they are external. Poetic license.

    I can relate. :)

    yeah, I find writing to vent is a much better option than any other method.
