Wander-lust

Why can’t I just stay,

you ask?

Because when I lose myself,

I lose you.

And, I lose myself all the time.

You see-

I want to be missed

while I’m mine,

so I can never be left

while I’m yours

Extreme Anti-extremism

Protestors are given a bad rap; ridiculed for expressing passionate detest.

Meanwhile, those who do nothing to communicate their dismay other than the occasional social media rant or breakfast conversation, are considered to be more tolerable, sensible, and respectable individuals.

Funny, isn’t it? We look kindly upon those with empty complaints and look down upon the minority who care to put into action what the majority simply use as dinner banter.

I’m not talking about those people who shove their beliefs down your throat (that’s a separate article entirely). What I’m trying to say is that branding inaction acceptable and endorsing the ideology that freedom of speech can only be practiced amongst your “closed caption group” is perhaps the reason we have something negative to say in the first place…

…still believe the protestors are the extremists?
