Introduction: To Be. Or Not. Crazy

Mr. T
English, Section A
To Be. Or Not. Crazy.
Then I’d want to write me all down now,
in a Truth Journal,
before I no longer knew the truth.
I’d want to stack my everything
out in the open,
English, Section A
To Be. Or Not. Crazy.
Then I’d want to write me all down now,
in a Truth Journal,
before I no longer knew the truth.
I’d want to stack my everything
out in the open,
before I eventually separated and scattered.
I’d want to swirl up into the sky to your cloud, Daddy,
before I blew across oceans to my last White Out,
or before any smudged thoughts or ripped feelings
ended up on top of a trash heap.
To Be. Or Not. Crazy.
Then I’d want a powerful back wind
to plaster my soul against a wall—
face up!
_________
That was the assignment:
Write a “To Be” Poem
using the verb <to be> no more than twice.
Mr. T circled “White Out” and put a question mark next to it.
He underlined the ending and put a check alongside.
That wasn’t my real ending, though.
To Be. Or Not. Crazy.
Then I’d want a powerful back wind
to plaster my soul against a wall—
face up!
Why?
Because I don’t trust you, Mom.
You’re not Anne Frank’s father.
You’d totally rewrite my diary.
——————
Wonder if Mr. T would have underlined those last three lines
and put a check alongside them.
Doesn’t matter, too personal.
And besides, they contained a 3rd <to be>.
Truth?
After my last White Out,
to be or not to be crazy doesn’t matter.
To write me all down now,
while I’m still here, does.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more.

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

Ding Fernando: very nice read.so realistic you can hardly put it down,i really like the character so human despite posessing immortality and eternal youth.though i would prefer a better ending..i still love this novel and i am recommending it to all sci fi fans to give it a try .you will love it too!!

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!
