Writer's Block: First Amendment
nikolastynan
Why is freedom of speech important to you?


I have friends who have fought and died for this amendment and all the others that make up the Constitution. When I enlisted I swore an oath to defend these amendments with my life if necessary as well. This country and the Constitution itself were built off the Freedom of Free Speech. If that is taken away from us, our country loses its foundation and we are doomed to fall. Abe Lincoln once said that "A house divided cannot stand." What do you think happens to the house without foundation?

What is your dream for your children?

Writer's Block: Poetry Break
nikolastynan
Write a poem or share one that you like.


"Voyage"

Do these running thoughts know no rest?
Does this beating heart know pause?
Will I find meaning to this constant quest?
In this madness will I find a cause?

I don’t know where I am standing
Amongst the pine the grass and turf
All these directions are maddening
In this chance may I find worth?

My ship, it seems, circumnavigates
Around what though I do not know
Toward the unknown I gravitate
The sails fill without a wind to blow

An unending quest for meaning
A sea of dangers all around
Though I find myself careening
I will not stop ‘til I find ground

-Nikolas T. Monastere
