    When you look at me 7-27-07

    Just what do you see when you look at me
    do you see my past
    before you see my future

    Do you see disappointed children
    afraid to get too close
    because their daddy might be taken away again

    Someone who cant seem to love themselves
    and therefor hates them self for it

    A man who cant seem to let go of the pain
    because it's the only thing in his life thats ever been constant

    Or the mountain of financial debt owed to the same state government
    that took away his freedom and livelihood

    How about a man who's caught so deep
    in the wheels of the system that he cant get out

    Maybe someone who's only dreams that ever came true 
    were the nightmares

    Or just a simple man with more reasons to give up
    than to keep fighting

    Because thats what I see
    from my point of view.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
