I was in the shower and I was trying to perfect my cursive, but then I thought of this poem. I then wrote it on my mirror until I thought it was good enough to blog.This is original and by Danielle Levine
My finger etches my name and the door cries with every stroke. As the water descends my writing fogs and disappears. erasing all evidence of me and my crimes against the glass. Only to be replaced with more tears, but not from me. I cannot cause this much sadness. It's caused from the water falling from the shower head. Not satisfied with staying on the ground, drops jump onto the clear surface creating more lines of tears than the fog can erase. Until soon, I'm not looking at a clear glass door, I'm looking at lines obscuring my view of the world on the other side.

It's so easy to hide sadness. In an earlier post I wrote that it's so easy to be happy, but today I realized that I was not happy. I was just hiding my unhappiness. Through words and smiles you can fool anyone and soon you will be able to fool yourself, if only far a little while. But soon something will knock you back down again and you will realize that you weren't happy about anything in particular you were just putting on a mask. All the things that made you sad to begin with are still there, just piling up. I haven't been happy for the longest time. The happy that lasts. The happy that allows you to wake up and look forward to the day. They say that it gets better, but the world stays the same. It's a world that bullies for differences, that destroys lives through killing dreams and telling you no. Sometimes I think that there is so much more to be unhappy about than there is to make you happy again.

The six goals for the Constitution of the united states were;to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. This is not fulfilled in our current society. One definition of liberty from dictionary.com is freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction,hampering conditions, etc.; power or right of doing, thinking,speaking, etc., according to choice. In some states homosexual people are still not allowed to marry who they choose. Same sex couples' choice to express their love through a union is not legally identified. How is this fair and just? They deserve to receive all the acceptance and privileges that a heterosexual couple would get. Homosexuality is not a disease and it's not something to be afraid of. So why isn't it nationally legal to have a gay marriage?
