    Comme Sartre écrit dans son ouvrage L'existentialisme est un humanisme: «... l'homme tout d'abord existe, se rencontre, surgit dans le monde et se définit par la suite." Bien sûr, l'aspect plus positif, thérapeutique de cette est également implicite: Une personne peut choisir d'agir d'une manière différente, et d'être une bonne personne à la place d'une personne cruelle. Ici, il est également clair que depuis que les humains peuvent choisir d'être soit cruel ou bien, ils sont, en fait, aucune de ces choses essentiellement.

    From Sartre.... Existentialism

      l'existence précède l'essence. je ne suis pas sûr qu'un tyran sanguinaire décide de mal agir, je crois qu'il ne s'en rend pas compte parce qu'il faut une sacrée dose d'immoralité pour agir ainsi et êt ... more

    Can't You see?(Blind)
    Written by Adam M. Snow

    Why are you blind?
    Can't you see,
    the lies you live
    is not of Me?
    I am love.
    I am truth.
    I died for you.
    I set you free.
    You mocked My name
    and cast Me out.
    You blame Me,
    for your downfall.
    I gave you words,
    a simple instruction,
    'How to live
    and live the right way.'
    Can't you see?
    The way you live,
    choosing sin over Me;
    it makes Me sad
    to watch you fall.
    I cannot help you,
    until you call.
    Call unto Me,
    I will grab your hand,
    and once again,
    I'll set you free.

      I think these words are not tour words to your, friend or loved one But The Words Of The Lord. Just give Glory to Him and Him Only Glory be to King Jesus.

    I reworked it.

    Home At Night

    He felt like a cold
    chicken leg or at
    least a hunk of bitten

    pizza. Coles cloud
    enveloped him.
    He wondered listlessly

    and the pantry could
    not be remembered.
    Certainly he wasn’t

    chips or an apple.
    A large belch arose
    and then he stumbled

    to one knee like a
    giraffe that’s been
    shot in the brain.

    And Frank just stood
    there with his beer.

    I think we better get that " post as a reply" rule cranked up again. Great rule.

    Just saying that this is a big world and highly qualified people such as the one I mentioned regarding L.P. and his Mediocrities also wrote this about the poem The Midnight Thief(what a world this would be if the only critics were Palmer and his female dogs) ..........

    A highly qualified individual has reviewed this poem of mine and here are the exact words:
    " Stealing life-
    suicide-
    brilliant! ! ! "

    The Midnight Thief

    Like a midnight thief,
    he waits for darkness
    to permeate until,
    all sounds had evaporated
    under the grey moon.

    Joyful, almost gleeful,
    he eyes the iron's electrical cord,
    his rope, appropriately black.
    A cheap drug store item
    that will do the job at hand.

    He cuts the length he needs
    with a chef's sharpened knife
    whooshing through it
    like a samurai sword.
    Not too long and not too short.

    He has already found his branch;
    the sturdy, short, shower curtain rod.
    More towards the left, he tells himself,
    to ensure more strength.
    Then, the rest of this thieving act

    should be straightforward. - - - This is brilliant
    Two knots, one above the other; - - - spoken from such a
    an amateur's knot for sure, - - - - touching, sad
    but, what the heck, an amateur's life - - - and personal level
    he has led. Then, feed the end through,

    tightening. Test and retest,
    he reminds himself,
    as only one outcome will do.
    His head pushes through
    the darkness, as had

    happened once before, long ago.
    It begins to feel more like a beginning,
    where most things seem to always end.

    I love poetry rich with powerful similes and novel metaphors. This poem, IMO, achieves success in both areas. Enjoy.
