“I fucking love this country” (Atmosphere)
I don’t love all the people who fucking ruin it.
Corrupt fucking politicians,
Crooked fucking cops,
Greedy fucking businessmen,
Corrupt, crooked, greedy, fake fucking religions
Created by fucking profit prophets,
Worthless fucking parents,
This fucking system, that fucking system,
All the fucked up systems.
God (please, if you’re up there) bless fucking America.
I know with all the media and bad memories that everyone is pretty much tired of all the hype surrounding 9/11. I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way.
To anyone that lost someone in the attacks 10yrs. ago : I’m sorry. I’m sorry for your loss, I’m sorry for your mourning, and I’m sorry there’s no resolution. There’s no replacing the life of a loved one, especially when it’s lost at the hands of evil. You have my deepest sympathies, and my heart goes out to you and yours. God bless.
I was in 7th grade when the attacks took place. I use the word “attacks” because, in my opinion, that’s what occurred. Someone planned, waited, and attacked. Whether it was indeed terrorists, or our own government, is a debate that will rage on probably until the end of time. Whoever was behind it worries me just like it would anyone else, but I believe some people look too deep and forget one important thing.
People died. Innocent or not, people died. And they died for someone else’s gain, or someone else’s hatred Whatever the motive, they died. I feel people get caught up in the information, the ideas, the facts, the conspiracies, and they forget to be grateful that they were not involved. I’m incredibly sorry it had to happen but I’m also immensely grateful my loved ones were not harmed. I realize it’s important to understand the whos, whats, whys and hows but I feel it’s more important to care for people and take care of each other. And there was an overwhelming response of care and hope, but why did we wait until something bad happened?
I’m not the government’s biggest fan, but I’m also not a conspiracy theorist. If the truth ever does come out, and it IS the truth then I hope it makes the world a better place.
Of course with today being the 10yr. anniversary there is talks, rumors, etc. of another attack. I hope not. I know it’s hard nowadays to have hope, but someone has to. If a select few have to carry the weight of optimism then I’m more than willing.
Bottom line : 9/11/2001 was a tragedy. I hope that 9/11/2011 is a triumph in any respect minus a negative one. I hope everyone has a safe, fun, normal day (not boring normal, just normal). Love and peace.
Question what we’re told, but believe everything we hear.
Supposedly trust no one, but post all of our most personal problems publicly.
It’s not our problem until we ARE the problem.
Eat fast food but learn slow.
Blame movies, video games, and music while our parents lie, cheat, and neglect.
Get married because there’s a child on the way then blame missing our youth on being a parent.
Fall in love faster and separate/divorce even faster.
Know we do wrong, but don’t hold ourselves accountable.
The truth will set me free, but it’s expensive and I’m not buying it.
I love this fucking country.
This country is composed of composite compost,
blue collar criminals and con-artists,
contracting condolences from poets, scholars, and artists
who pity the dark and heartless.
Cynical civilians sinning in the systems symptoms,
where villains are victorious over the sickly victims.
Without shame we aim and maim,
then frame others to hang the blame,
the game and gangs maintain the same names
as they tame another flame.
… To Be Continued (hopefully)
Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds, and assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds. They are two of my favorite techniques to use when writing poetry. I’d like to continue this one but it’s tough. I’d like the subject to maintain a social and political stance but it’s difficult when only using certain words and sounds to form the stanza. Hope you enjoy.
I don’t keep up with world events too much. I feel like I have too much of my own bullshit to work through right now that I try not to let too much else bother me. I don’t need any more bad news or hard times than I already have bringing me down. But I do know what’s going on over in Egypt and after seeing so many disheartening posts about what’s going on I figured I’d give my two cents. My homie Jake (whyitscaresme.tumblr.com) has posted many upsetting images and info from the tragedy happening over there, and it’s hard not to take notice.
What’s going on in Egypt sucks. I don’t wish it on anyone. But sometimes governments need catastrophe to open their eyes. So if I’m glad for one thing out of the dilemma it’s that the people of Egypt are standing and fighting for what they think is right. I wish there was a more peaceful and less tragic way to do so but things are usually darkest before dawn. I wish them the best.
And mostly I hope that the people of other countries (especially Americans) see how blessed they are to live where they live and live HOW they live. Of course there are wrongs and injustices in the U.S., most of us see them every day. I just hope that people realize there is a bigger picture. There are more things wrong than just “who punched Snooki”, or “Lindsay Lohan going to jail, and not going to jail”. I am truly grateful that I don’t have to wake up in the morning and be worried about my family, or worried that an RPG just blew half my bedroom wall to hell. I sleep in a warm bed, listening to an iPod, with no care other than I wish I had a better job and was living on my own.
I hope people see that no matter how bad things are for you, they could always be worse. But at the same time, we could always make them better.
Love and Peace,
