As I stated already:
Beautifully written freeverse. I am reblogging this, I think. Very courageous to begin with a quote from Ayn Rand, or any individualist or romantic realist, for that matter.
I am in an artistic mode this evening, and would not like to think in great detail regarding the events or other aspects of this post. I sense this kind of frustration in many many people–even, paradoxically, those would disagree with all of the above. Which, in and of itself, is a sign that, regardless of any indoctrination we may or may not have received, we are still not so different as some would think (or perhaps hope that such differences should be a lever with which to divide us.)
