One Year, (not) 100 Books - February

By: clarinets-are-awesomeMarch 2, 2015

Dystopia

By: AutumnMooncakesDecember 25, 2014

We tried to cleanse the world

Of our poisoned footprints,

Remake what we destroyed,

Surpass our forefathers.

A perfect system that will last forever.

The government has all you need;

The world will never grieve again.

Peace for humans.

The world wrought by man’s hands

A Good Book

By: AutumnMooncakesOctober 13, 2014

A good book

Is one that makes you think

That gives dots for you to connect

A jigsaw for you to solve

 

A good book

That rewinds and replays

Digs burrows into the depths

 

A good book

Is one that makes you dream

That leaves souvenirs to touch
