Favorite Quote:
"We live, as we dream-alone." --Conrad Joseph

We are the People.
We are the past, the present, and the future.
The land on which we live rests in our hands.
We can destroy, or recreate the earth.

But for now, we sit and we learn.
We watch the world revolve and change.
Change into something better,
Or is it something worse?

One day, one time, we will shine.
We will take over where our predecessors failed.
This world will one day be our canvas.
But for now, we learn how to paint.

For now, We are the People.

The author's comments:
This poem was actually inspired by the phrase "We Are The World." Originally, the title was supposed to be that, but then I found out it was a song title. So then I changed it to "People" instead.

I hope I get a good reaction to it. I'm more of a story writer then a poet.
