I prefer being alone, cold to heat, and chocolate over broccoli.

An ode to the forgotten

Dear forgotten peoples
Left in the dark
Unsure
Unaware
Uncared for
Dragging your feet as you are left behind
No longer curious about the world

Dear forgotten peoples
Afraid to ask
Afraid not to know
But used to both
Shivering from cold
And knowing it's your own
Seeing
Longing
But only losing

Dear forgotten peoples
You who also forget
The guilt never leaves
"It's my fault"
But it's not
Blamed
But never blame
Anyone but themselves

Dear forgotten peoples
You are alone
But not quite

Forgotten
But not lost

Left to rot
But blooming

Safe
But still forgotten

    @Christy Wisdom yes, it is! It's quite possibly (in my opinion) one of the best quotes of the entire franchise

    Hey wait, this doesn't have to do with the poem which was still good by the way, but is the "MY CABBAGES!!!!" from Avatar the Last Airbender?
