1. one lacking in experience in an art or science
2. one who engages in a pursuit, study, science, or sport as a pastime rather than as a profession
from French amateur "one who loves, lover"
I've never understood why being an amateur is considered a bad thing. Doing something for the love of it
seems pretty cool to me.
Anyways, let's get on with the poetry!
on icy-cold nights
i sometimes have this dream
where i look straight at
the snaking path of my past
and i turn around
attempt to catch a glimpse of the future
a split-second snapshot of what's to come
of course, i don't see anything
but i can feel it,
the sweet warmth of a summer day
a reminder that the unknown-future
is worth sticking around for
"Kids these days..."
underpriveliged, unravelling, unfiltered youth,
fighting for that promised-but-not-delievered everything
that we deserve.
clinging to the glittering, glowing sparks
of hope in our hearts; all we can hold;
our most powerful weapon
kids these days don't break easy
kids these days will change the world
more to come...
