War,
a battle we all fight,
with one demon or another,
a person,
a thing,
a drug,
a vice,
ourselves…

War,
a necessary thing,
to truly be alive,
we must fight,
to live,
to fight.

War,
without it there is no love,
no joy,
no peace,
for without a fight,
what is a thing worth?

War,
it gives us everything we need,
to survive,
to prosper,
to be alive.
Just finished watching Equilibrium for the umpteenth time, and was just inspired to write... Nothing much though!

Always good to see you still writing! I'm feeling my creative mind trying to be socio-political rather than the other stuff that I'm used to writing. Maybe it's out environment and the stress in-between that shapes our perception of our current world.

Thanks man! Glad to see you're still writing as well!

Well, as artist, we are/can become a product of our environment and the natural tendencies as artist is to express this through our art, especially if we are passionate about ________ (fill in the blank). I'd say that if you want to go that way, take your beliefs, or what you oppose and find a way to weave that into an interesting story that get's across your point, without beating people over the head with it. If you want to take a more direct approach, then consider a political 'article' versus a story. Just my opinion though! :)

Hahahaha! I had forgotten about that endearing rendition of my username! :hug:

Yeah, work has been a real drain on my soul as of late! So it was a combo of the movie I was watching, which is excellent by the way, and a little of my state of being.

Thanks for the comment though! :)
