       ...Just a few thoughts.

    + Sinking slowly,
    we take on the world.
    With foolish dreams, and hopeless hopes,
    we fight on.
    Such precious cargo
    we bear on our shoulders;
    dying slowly,
    we take on the world.

    Let it be said that chivalry isnít dead,
    you helped me when I help you.
    But we canít contain it,
    those hot spots of freedom,
    and plus, why would we
    when we can roam?

    Itís not so bad when we sit together,
    but everyone watches us anyway.
    We tell them its nothing,
    and blush aside, mouthing
    the words we wish we could say aloud.
    Itís terrible the way we hide from each other.


    Such is the way we are.
    We canít help but fight.
    Itís all about the here and now,
    so donít bother crying.
    In the day we bicker endlessly,
    at night we smile tenderly,
    and tell one another
    those words, so illusive.

    Itís called hate,
    Or love,
    Depends on whoís asking
    Like water and fire,
    We create a mist
    which confuses us:
    and we lose our way
    in the fog we create.
    But under the cover of being lost, we hold hands.

      When I first started reading this, I thought you were just talking about humans in general, about how we're foolish and all. Of course, I was wrong, but I enjoyed the end resulf of the poem. I especially like the third stanza.
