You're Shallow, Man  
Hey guys. Sorry for all the poetry. I'm in one of my moods - where you just gotta speak and write and dream on paper for a bit to feel better. 

BTW: I'm on LULU if anyone anyone wants to rate my writing. XD

You're Shallow, Man

You’re shallow, man
I mean it, you’re right up there with the lily pads
All green and pink in the face
Those words you speak; they don’t mean much
Cuttin’ corners and standing in the shade
Reading those books in the front, not the back
The ones with the covers lost from bein’ read too much
The good ones with their dog ears and coffee stains
They’re the ones you should’ve read
Mister Top of the Charts pointed and you followed
Front page, billboard, up and coming but soon forgotten
You’ll never sink down here if you float up there
Up with the seaweed of the culture, moving where the currents go
Ending up on some black beach with sunburnt folks and their bestsellers
Sink with the weight of epiphany; the knowledge that you found from that golden rule
The rule of waking up late ‘cause you had to read slower due to the faded pages
(Someone must have loved that book before you, really loved it, ached over it)
Of walking home with dust on your nose
Of making art instead of others telling you about it
I mean it, man
You gotta sink a bit to have lived your own life

Don't apoligize for your poetry! I love reading it! (even if I don't always comment)

I checked out the two poems you had on tha tLULU site. I really liked memories. I feel I can really relate to that one and it adressed an issue that's been on my mind recently. So thank you for writing it. :)
