When the luminescent sheen of the moon is obscured
Clouds like frosted glass windows
The branches and stray leaves of an oak tree framing the controller of the tides
The light pours into the condensation between us and the sky
I breathe it in
The calm after the storm, flashes of lightening and striated clouds lining the heavens in silk
what we see in what we will die trying to comprehend
is what makes us human
For there is no laughter without tears
No beauty without pain, no genius without misunderstanding
Revolutionaries do not commonly inspire admires
Yet… As the moon shines through the trees we remember even the reflection of light pierces the dark
A candle seen a mile away by the naked eye
Live free or die.
A friend posted this a few days ago and it’s stayed in my thoughts, sourced from CNN . Please take a minute to watch this, her bravery and intelligence astounds me but also the obvious loss of much of her innocence from what she has seen saddens me. I hope Nada is now safe with her uncle, she was lucky to have someone to run to. She is from Yemen and is speaking out, quite passionately, against the practice of child marriages that are far too common in many areas of the world. She vehemently threatens to take her own life, as she has seen her family and friends (children) do if she is forced into marriage.
She says they stole her dreams, I see a beautiful incredibly intelligent and eloquent girl who given the freedom to do so, could do anything and perhaps could make a very large change in her world. I see more and more girls from areas they have been told to shut up not doing so, I think some men seriously underestimate the power of this. Would explain the fear. And every time a woman or child speaks up it makes it easier for the next to do so.
This little girl touched my heart, I was intelligent at 11 and passionate about what I believed in too but I thankfully was so innocent and naive I didn’t even know child brides existed. She points out the biggest two problems with marrying these girls off, the stealing of both innocence and their future by not allowing them to finish school. That it kills everything inside of them.
Courage is the most inspiring trait in human beings, I feel…thank you for your story Nada I wish you nothing but the best.
hands tangled in a web of marionette strings
a porcelain doll with lifeless eyes
just hovers above the radioactive sea
she was alive but apathy feels better than pain
easier than manifesting kinetic energy
she turned cold and let them cut her open
jab her with needles
and hands with no fingerprint design pull the strings
a dark unsure world
powers trying to divide to conquer
yet so many are blind to the cause
stuck on the symptoms of a very sick society
a world so connected yet detached
red herrings are very much alive
a planned society falling apart
a group of people with love but not understanding what to do
trying to see the light but
it’s like the one time I experienced sleep paralysis in the wake of this strange decade
terrified floating in space, half of my mind not in this world
an occasional asteroid coming to crush me into darkness
six hours of an out of body experience I couldn’t even scream out
where was my mind
where is it now
no gravity I just feel like I’m fucking floating, useless dust today
nothing makes sense
maybe it will in the end
time lines like a Tarantino flick
but I can’t let it envelope me
I can’t let it depress me these words aren’t as pretty as I wish they could be
Or wonder why something that came so easy won’t come back, I know my writing is shit for now but I need to get this half assed prose out like poison
know all too well there is no escape anyway except through love… maybe we can find it
maybe I can stare into the heavens and feel like they’re returning the glance again tonight
Waking up at 5am, a day off after working all weekend, but no coffee or tea too hungry now to proof read too much now… god I want
siracha and eggs. I used to think that was gross. Everything changes.
Current events, when there are so many, are easier to write about when you have writers block than let’s say fiction. Any tips on overcoming months of it welcomed. I plan to travel as soon as things permit.
The news this morning;
watching the fifteenth day of protests in Turkey, which from what I understand started with wanting to keep the last bit of green Istanbul free from a shopping mall and has escalated into 5,000 injuries, many from the very powerful water cannons I saw live and the tear gas the reporter had to eventually mask his face to avoid. Turkey is a democracy, and the leader was elected democratically. But the citizens say they are fighting against extreme conservationism and what they believe to be authoritarian leadership.
This begs the question, to me, can any person stay a nations leader for 10 years, even the most well intentioned. (Which, Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan hasn’t seemed, as the reporter broadcasting there mentioned, concerned with a relatively large public outcry. This situation intrigues me both in philosophy, human rights and foreign policy. We should also keep in mind Turkey’s geography, and how important our allies are in the East as they are few. I have also heard from my friends who travel that the people in general just seemed… kind
I want to thank my friends or strangers that become my friends after stumbling on my blog. I’ve been lucky enough to have readers from most corners of the globe though my views are modest.
In a follow up of the NSA scandal, the FBI is now throwing around accusations of the former NSA employee’s identity was revealed. Personally, I know some leaks threaten national security, but the president said he was welcome for debate on the subject. The MSM, sorry, CNN then showed some crackpot poll saying most Americans don’t care if the government spies on us even to the extent revealed and admitted by the administration. I always wonder where these polls come from.
He was called a leaker when the head of this (apparently not over) scandal came about, now I heard words such as espionage or treason thrown around. I suppose I will do some research on this man, but his motives did seem mostly clear: just letting the world know what was going on involving them at large. It has nothing to do with our department of defense, in essence, how could it be contrived as espionage or treason? The UK is an ally of ours that had the balls to actually publish this story in the Guardian… Why American news depresses me, why so many of us read blogs or alternative news to find out what stories aren’t being skewed or left out… of course, I don’t see the big picture.
If I did, I still feel like I’d see it differently.
The West keeps calling my name, in so many different ways.
Thanks to Human Traffic Watch for publishing this video. This woman is so strong but no one on earth should have to endure what she had. She is blessed, it is a miracle she’s alive.. I teared up… some of it is VERY hard to hear but we need to end this.
300,000 children are sold into sex slavery in the United States a year.
If the NSA is spying so profusely, why can’t they stop it? Only 1 in 100 sex traffickers ever does time according to this video. Also, apparently there are like 800 survelliance cameras in DC, why is it that Washington DC has the highest child prostitution statistics. I remember watching a Lisa Ling special and they were 6 blocks from the white house, one of the girls couldn’t have been 13. I cannot imagine what these children go through thank God for that, but my heart cries out just standing by. I would like to work with runaways or something… I need to look into something. I feel like SOMETHING is better than nothing.
What really bothers me about child abuse is how many people who see it happening to someone else are too cowardly to go to law enforcement. This is one time there is no excuse, EVER. I don’t care how much you love them, you know in your heart they are sick and there is nothing you can do. I’m sorry, but if you like to hurt children, you are sick as fuck and I am a very open minded individual. That is the only vigilant crime I would like, to stop you fuckers from ever touching another child. Just tase you, beat you up a bit nothing horrible, once you’re in prison I know the men in there with questionable pasts that are still human will take care of you, perhaps they view that as their redemption. I suppose that is wrong to think, I just don’t care. You will be judged in the end, I don’t care if you believe in hell or reincarnation or nothing. I am very passionate about this.
The people high in society she alludes to need to be exposed NOW. And all need to serve more time than people on damn charges for drugs, traffic or theft!!! UGH
I send this woman and all survivors of sexual abuse male and female my love and light, you are all beautiful. You deserve peace and safety. They say everyone means the world to someone, even though they may never know…
The link is an interesting theory on who is behind this crazy software NSA is using to compile all our juicy data into one big profile that would surpass our own memory of our actions and conversations… even trying to track thought by constant facial recognition. Face.com is just one example of how widespread this is in use
Well I mean, I wasn’t surprised Big Brother is real and watching us… The extent it goes, and the extent I can imagine it to go (though I’d rather not) is disturbing to say the least. I wrote about this last year, citing“National Security Agency whistleblower William Binney reveals he believes domestic surveillance has become more expansive under President Obama than President George W. Bush. He estimates the NSA has assembled 20 trillion “transactions” — phone calls, emails and other “
And I remember this one too, from 2011.
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you…”
Some of what I wrote, after reading a Wikileaks document completely legally and with concern for my country in my heart…”One article I read, a brochure by the company SS8, went into detail about how to identify key players in social networks…ones who had a lot of networking connections, and referring to their linked Google, Facebook, etc as “nodes” that could be used in an investigation…how close people were to each other, literally a social map where we are all just minuscule (sp) blue dots, connected by thread, ready to be played with on a marionette as puppets.
We cannot let this happen.”
Not really sure what else to say except I feel like if someone hasn’t already woken up…this is doing it. So it could be a good thing. Maybe we can change our future together without regard to personal differences. I know that is ridiculously idealistic but…some things are just too big to ignore. There has to be a better way.
My question to the government would be why do you have so much fear towards your own free people?
Fear is essential to the process of conditioning. Then messing with the norm, or what the societal norm should be. We don’t have to succumb to it… Unfortunately, in a high ranking position these days it seems you need to. We need men and women with real courage and ethics in office, who wish to preserve our rights and freedoms. Instead, I see people arguing about what they even are anymore. I’m so beyond Obama bashing, because it divides us. We need to talk about the truth, and that is that our systems we are supposed to trust seem to have been corrupted. The President said today in California something along the lines of “NSA is checked out by FISA, and by all branches of our system for the proper balance of power outlined in the Constitution. If you don’t trust The Executive Branch, and you don’t trust Congress, well, we have a problem.”
I said outloud…’What problem is that, Mr. President?’ And funny he actually did bring up the Constitution, I think there might have been a 4th Amendment on there, somewhere…
Peace and love to you all
And sorry your Skype sex was being watched by some sweaty NSA tech. It’s all for your safety, you know.
(I will write things of more substance shortly. I have so many ideas, the words just haven’t flowed. Injustices I need to speak out against, journeys I need to take and document. But I’m working on it, this may not be up to my usual par in a way but it comes from the heart. Love and peace to you all.)
Beneath a opaque violet sky,
dark but alive like the world shines in our minds
twin oak trees fallen deep into the night
their roots holding me afloat, their branches bringing my dreams to the skies
curling like Baroque strokes
growing dew drops foretell coming storms
this is the beginning of the end
echos of your speech twist my insides like a blade
if you were my muse must this be our fate.
(love gives all the words we breathe inherently. They are our kiss, our knife. Our language is power. Mastery of it is a never ending art.)
Let’s go fishing in the stars tonight
let the darkness hide us from outside eyes
and lost hearts will unite under the setting sun
the calm before the storm
I will kiss you like it is the last time (it may be)
and the backlash of the rain cries in want
of our dead stare reflected in
rusty mirrors filled with the smoke of our sins
the dust of creation
the trinity of Fates eminent before us,
as unnoticed as a shadow yet as meaningful as the light that cast it
no heart lives unmarred
but you held mine from the start.
