Ideals
by Nate Lindell

Who first thougth you up,
I wonder?
Possibly Adam or Eve
or another?

Well, you're here,
that's clear
y all the tearswe've shed
Blood we've bled
Lives you've ruined
Resources you've consumed.
And what's been proved?
for following you!

This poem I did during a particularly disappointing period in my life. Yet again, I had my hopes, my ideals dashed.

This poem I did for the great folks at: www.prisionbookprogram.org I can and do assure you, if you volunteer at of support such places, you are helping the world, one convict at a time.

Doors locked by ignorant bolts
Where picked by paper keys
freeing my soul
to breathe, eat, and grow
in ways which, without tomes,
I'd never have known
Were possibilities.
