Maybe you should stick to sound
Your poetry blows
Ah! So, I can win Step and Echo over with poetry, huh? XD Well, I'll try my hand at that:
The Moth and the Lamp
Should one find the light with the dark center
he shall surely breathe his last breath
for all beauty is foolishness
and all desire is death.
Why does he not give up
when all hope is lost?
Does he not know that success
comes at a severe cost?
Does he not speculate
on the meaning of his journey?
Does he not contemplate
the dangers of his yearning?
Innocence and beauty are elevating;
hope and ambition are compensating,
but he shall surely breath his last breath
by his foolish beauty and his desired death.
What sort of world is it that can encamp
so many examples of this moth and lamp?
Don't let this poem discourage you guys too much, but this is sort of how I personally feel about NGADM in my current, inexperienced position. Again, though, I'm happy for the opportunity, and there's always next year. Good luck everyone. ;)
