So We Decided to No Longer See

The match was tossed
the fire lit
fields and houses burned
chaotic inferno
it hurt to watch
so we decided
to no longer see

The solders were sent
the war invited
bodies and lives destroyed
hell on earth
it hurt to watch
so we decided
to no longer see

The insult was uttered
the riot incited
souls and spirits desolated
intolerance nation
it hurt to watch
so we decided
to no longer see

The love was offered
the gift given
substance and essence uplifted
to a state of grace
but we
had forgotten
how to watch

so we could
no longer see

About This Blog

The name for this blog was inspired by a quote by Nietzsche, below.

"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?" ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

I plan on this being the start of an incredible journey of discovery and creativity. I invite you to bring your pen, and come dance with me!
