Titles are attention getters.

Why would I want to blend?

Why would I want to fit in,

To be lost among men,

When most do not care,

If I'm alive or if I'm dead.

Your drill of life is nothing,

But rules and restrictions,

Similar differances,

A world of gray prisons,

I want to be free,

Let me be free,

Let me give dreams,

To those who want to dream,

I flow through life,

Never stopping,

That is why I call my self,

Pure ravine,

I have enough judgments,

I only get polluted,

When you make me unclean.

Another great piece of work Tyrone. Locking a person up and labeling them only intensifies the reasons they are there in the first place. We as human beings have so much yet to learn.

Your very right. We as people try so hard to fit in somewhere and then judge others because they found a place of their own. Thank you for reading and commenting. Tyrone.

Sadly true. That's why the people I most admire are those who have the courage to behave or live their lives in ways seperate from the herd.

I feel you, I think that there are two types of people-turtles, and wolves. Turtles tend to take things slow, and have a strong focus on where they want to go, the down side is that they live shettlered lives and once something penetrates thier shells it does some type of crippling or deadly damage. With wolves, it takes alot to kill them and anything that doesn't kill them, it makes them tougher, but the down side is, it also makes them meaner. With all that being said, I think it takes more courage to lead the "herd" then to shun being a part of what you already are. Thanks for reading and commenting, God bless. Tyrone.
