Biography

I write poetry and it compares that compares good and bad. My poetry is usually depressing.

Samples

Darkness overtakes the light Horridness overtakes the good Ugliness overtakes the beauty These six things are so different Yet the same I am the three bad things You are the three good things I feel hate You feel love We are so different And yet we are the same You are yin And I am yang You are light And I am dark You are good And I am bad You are pretty And I am ugly You are a goddess And I am a titan You are the truth I am the lie You are happy And I am sad. Darkness overtakes the light Horridness' overtakes the good Ugliness overtakes the beauty These six things are so different Yet the same I am the three bad things You are the three good things And within all of these things There is something in between

There's nothing depressing about thinking, unless you feel that you, and only you, have the 'right' answers. Now that would be DEPRESSING.

Enjoy the journey. Read a lot, listen a lot, and say little until you have something to say which is worth sharing. Poetry is an excellent medium for practising opinions, because writing in 'shorthand' requires precision of ideas and adequate vocabulary to express them.
