Self Destruction

The skull and crossbones of human desire.

Seeking danger as a precious rite of passage.

The entrance exam for personal independence.

And the beginning of the road to the end.


Too naive to be afraid.

Too ignorant to value good.

All the leaders smile and laugh.


A membership to freedom is a slavery to habit.

The club of pleasure is advertised everywhere.

But the test of autonomy is responsibility.


Who knew?
