OURSELVES

You know what you achieve by criticizing??????????
Nothing

Its merely fodder for the sad
In order to make themselves feel better

But do you know what can be achieved??????????
When the subject is encouraged

Anything
You know the subject actually even gets better

But that is sadly not the way we work
We do not want people to get better

Its the way we justify ourselves.

    PERFECTLY SAID! Not many people care about this matter OBVIOUSLY by the amount of comments you have. I write poetry on this matter and I've read other's who have written poetry on this matter and people just do NOT seem to care about this matter only about some fantasy! Don't you worry. There ARE people who think the way you do... just so few. This one is also in my fav's <3
