Control, guilt, manipulation.
These are the ways heroes fade to grey and become much less than a zero.
The truths we perceive, the things we believe, the ideas we have held as our own –
What can be done for unfortunate ones who are raised to be nothing or something?
And what can be said of the kids who are fed their thoughts from a dream that’s misleading?
Strife isn’t nice when it comes at a price, when success determines one’s meaning.
I’ll say it again for those under ten – your life is your own, respect yours alone, for the takers are always receiving.
– Thomas M. Watt
