Ambitious tensions arise,
crowding the display
of our arrogant focus.
We wish not to wait,
for we are only waiting on something worth waiting for.
Secret temptations drive our hunger.
Diluted consciences fuel our hatred.
Empty hearts flood our pity and sorrow.
And yet some still wonder why the good die young.
We commit pretentious crimes
for the sake of humanly pleasure
and still get scolded for being our own.
So let us not ask of the pursuit of our downfall;
instead, let us fight it.
Separated, we fall like flies,
but together we can impale our own hatred.
We do not wish for the death of our own,
only the death of that which consumes us.
After such heroism,
Many would question our own subtle yielding;
I only ponder at how long it took.
We need only to follow our own truths,
be our own leaders, and help those who need help.
Together, we will destroy our own consumption.

This is a poem I wrote and one of the few that made publishing. It started as an entry on poetry.com, and it won the online contest they held a while back for that month, and it moved to the annual competition. Long story short, i came 3rd in the Country.
Well, I hope you enjoy this poem! I hope you like it as much as the judges did! ^_^
