Love Is To Hate

Let us Begin

Love Is To Hate
Colin Sullivan

We live in a world to be accepted voiceless,

to stay sheltered from the terrors of differences

The openness of our love and soul is sheltered.

We live in a world where we are too blind.

Too blind to see the truth behind the smile,

the pain that lingers behind the face

that is covered up by the nearest high.

We live in a world where gained acceptance

rots in the hands of the devil.

Our ideas become so twisted and flustered.

It becomes unapparent to see a difference

between the man holding the gun and I.

There is one saying too much to handle.

The power leaks through the voice

of many who no longer fear

the pain of our carried out intent.

Who embellish themselves in knowledge,

who seek to find love in what they have learned

to no longer follow the crowd but to

understand why the steps are so easily repeated.

We take a chance to single ourselves out,

to open the eyes of others,

to share the darkness that hides behind the light.

We are here to teach love in a new way

one that isn't made up of sketched hearts in a note pad.

We are here to teach a new love

a love that is earned and destroyed,

one that no longer holds all the smiling faces,

but drags along the misery we went through.

The world came crashing down,

to fall far from what love we believe in

to establish the people that will fight

to be safe, to bury deep into a satisfaction,

to create the world that is grown from good

A world that is reborn on the floor of love.

We get lost in order to grow further.

We lose ourselves to assemble ourselves.

We fall down to learn to get back up .

We hate to understand the darkness of love.

Let us begin.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements. I can assure that all tall people are tired of being asked what the weather is like "up here", but here are a few other things we don't want to hear anymore.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
