I wrote a short poem briefly touching over some issues I have with our society. These issues are mostly on my personal views but they're close to my heart and I strongly support them. I believe if people stop following and living such a "cookie cutter" lifestyle and mentality, they'll be able to see the world isn't so black and white. Life is complex and so are our problems. Enjoy.

Poetry is a place to meet. We all have a table here waiting for us. We talk, laugh, and metaphor our way through verse like intimate conversations. In our hands are the mugs matching the personalities wide and varied, they are our hearts. In them - filled to the brim - is our ink. This addictive fluid is drank slowly as we read or it's splashed down on paper. So sit and drink the ink with me.
