this v. this

i cried at the news. a fortune cookie
had made it come true. goal accomplished!
i thought maybe i'd make a postsecret out of it.
'kuz i thought there was something
wrong
with me this whole time that i don't cry at the news

just trying to keep up with
the names of countries, why

do they keep talking about islam, and saying

white/black- and please do bring light
to how non-violence isn't even non-violence any longer.

nonono i don't want to be apolitical! i want a special title!
please
bring light to how impressionable we stay
and do what we're told
but say we go out of our ways not to.

privilege
rape
culture.
history

my name is george orwell. i left
the graveyard seeking a 24mg nicotine patch.
there wasn't a single person who
i passed on my journey
that knew everything like i do.

should you choose to,
i hope you find the learning experience exciting .
