Untitled (Possibly named 'A Hidden Message')

The incision upon vanity,
Maniacally derived from insanity,
Trying to claim the images washed into the mind.
Constant deception of so many kinds.
Falling to believe the movement is grand,
Bowing to perfection they can never understand.
So many falling victim, believing it's the way,
The unknowing will forever make the best of prey.
A simple plan, yet so easy to instigate,
And another is drawn in to physically disintegrate.

This is my outlook upon the ideas of beauty that the media has corrupted many people into believing. I feel the messages you can see in television, magazines, and anything along those lines are becoming so blatant, yet people still aren't recognizing it. Many will try and argue, but the majority of people are influenced by popular fashion trends (whether it be hair, cloth etc.), and some go to drastic measures to achieve such looks you will find throughout all these 'celebrities'. Perhaps you could call it conformist? Maybe some simply feel it will increase self-confidence? I'm sure there are many possible reason, but the media ultimately plays a big role in the initial spread of such things. This is one of many reasons why I believe the media is simply a virus within humanity.

Thank you to those who took the time to read and feel free to comment with feedback, thoughts, or opinions.

Reasons Within Reason

So before I start getting really into posting many pieces that I have written or will write, I suppose I should first go into why I write, and the reasons behind the style. My main influences in writing consist primarily of rock, metal and underground hip-hop artists. I find them to have the most meaning behind their words. To me words are simply pieces of a greater puzzle, and when pieced together in the right way can be a beautiful thing. If you think it's strange to write poems and such, then I pity your narrow-minded mentality.

I write for the simple fact that it is my way of expression. Though not all the time, I am the type of person to keep most emotions to myself when there are others around (aside from anger, which many people love to express the instant they feel it). This is how I get perspective on what I feel and it help me deal with certain things. The main reason however, is not so much for myself, but for others to read. The simplest of poems or lyrics can have an unbelievable impact on the most unexpected of readers. I enjoy writing for that off-chance that someone will read it and it will help them in some way, whether it be emotionally, mentally, inspirational, or if it even were to make someone just think for a moment.

Well, if you took the time to read this, thank you. I hope you check back and read some of my work, and hopefully it may have some type of positive effect on you.


Upon first sight with a first breath of new life,
Everything seems at ease for the moment.
A new time has risen from the ashes of the past,
Keep both feet on your path and learn to own it.
When led astray to fall away has no purpose,
It's irrelevance lies within a lack of willpower.
To fade away as sunlight upon the growing night,
Pointless, as you die more every second, minute, hour.
