I very rarely re-blog my own writing. However, given the good impression I’ve been making at my current place of employment, I thought I would share this piece I wrote last summer while working at my previous job. I know there are jobs that need to be done, and money must be made to support oneself in a civilized society. However, I just cannot help but believe the U.S. should have more people questioning and expanding upon ideas and philosophies rather than getting caught up in the idea that a dollar bill or two rules their entire universe. What are your thoughts?
he didn’t want the nation
but to work.

who have joined in on
A man yearning to know,
yet clinging to everyday exertion,
where does the lost time run to?
Is it we
who have created
this horror house?
Finding more comfort in a problem
than struggling within the solution,
where does the lost nation run to?
