Dear oaklungs, I've said this before and I'll say it again. Your work is beyond amazing. Truly inspiring and if people don't get it or like it that's their problem. I love your style of writing and many others do too. You are a fantastic poet.
Yes, and they walk around like dead-eyed robots and look at you as if you're crazy for trying to do something different.
Currently reading "The Fifth Mountain" by Paulo Coelho and you poem reminded me of a quote in the book: "Souls too, like rivulets and plants, needed a different kind of rain: hope, faith, a reason to live. When this did not come to pass, everything in that soul died, even if the body went on living; and the people could say: 'Here in this body there was once a man.'"
