A Poem by Martha Gilleece

lalalaa late night mind control


We are explorers
     and lovers
     and fighters
     on our journey to another world.

We run away
     to forget
     to experience
     and to embrace passion.

Sinners, they call us
     for expressing raw emotion
     for being vulnerable
     and for basking in pure ecstasy.

This is a masterpiece. Not only does it flow and weave the words smoothly, it brings to us one of the biggest issues in the modern world, that of being unaccepted for being unique or being who one is. I'll take being called a sinner any day, if it means staying true to what I am and what I value.

Perfection in Ink!

. stunning work ...
. everyone should have the right to express themselves ...
. we should never be labeled as "sinners" ...
