Things I Think to Avoid Writing College Essays (to be continued)

When did duct tape and lips sewn shut become so fashionable?  
Or is it just another trait encoded into DNA, unraveling as we age    
and disguising itself as a trend so that we don't shrivel under the oppressiveness of silence?    
It's said that, "in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king" but it's not our eyes that are closed.    
________________________________________________________________    
   
I've discovered what makes me happy    
just in time for another deadline    
and the cycle continues.    
There has to be some way to see the universe    
and term papers    
simultaneously.    
_________________________________________________________________    
   
Did you know that black holes don't suck?    
They attract, the reel, they pull    
but they are not vacuums ready to swallow galaxies whole.    
You are not what convention told you.    
You laugh, you think, you lie    
but you are more than a diagnosis or a few fuck-ups.    
_________________________________________________________________
 
I really want to sleep.
_______________________________________________________________
I am but a whisper in the forest
a tree that fell with no one to hear
do you know my bark breaks
with screams?
