Juliet makes me think of green New growth all around me Rising up from the ashes of the past Thriving after forest fires Cycles of life and death And I wonder Is this how Shakespeare felt?
The thing is: Shakespeare’s poems and plays have so much more formatting and organization.
Romeo and Juliet. So inspirational. Man, I hate that play. But what
part of it inspires me? "Obviously the theme of true love," someone
ignorantly gushes. Nope. Family feuds and recovering from disaster.
On a mostly unrelated note, my favorite part of the entire play is the part when Romeo and Mercutio are talking about dreams. Actually just the very beginning of that part.
I look and I see
Such a magnificent tree
Such a story to tell!
You've been here for an eternity
What have you seen?
What do you see?
Don't you have a story for me!
Doves of war!
Hawks of peace!
Arrows and swords!
Weapons of war
You have knowledge
It took you so long to see
It took eternity
Now you know
Nobody ever looks up
This was something I wrote for school last year, and for the life of me I can't remember the actual prompt.
People, people, people. I think all can agree that they are ultimately what causes us to the most pain and the most joy. They are what makes us keep living and what makes us decide to stop. They are people, people, people.
