The war happened to me
the hostile people
my neighbours and family
I have to
take my loss

The dark is teaching me
to accept
that I am invulnerable
there is no need to flee

my soul is my asylum
if I ****, I **** lovingly
with a silvery shine
around my duty
which is not a mirror
of their motives

Arjuna = Silvery shine

Krisjna = Dark

I must learn happiness
Lest she leave me
To mine own devices
Which have decayed in woe
Do you ever lie in darkness,
Wondering if you will be
The star of some great epoch
In books of history?

Do you ever fear you'll fail,
And let everyone down
That expected you to be someone,
Instead of to be drowned?

There are so many expectations
For you to change the world
To deny is to refuse
Your duty.
Hoarding is a problem associated with
Deep sense of something missing something.
Or someone.
An emotional empty feeling.
Until we can face theses things
We will carry the excess baggage.
around in a physical way.
Only we can
The things around us.
By sorting of the pain hurt.
We can let go
And release the things that we are attached too.
Then we can do a spring clean inside outside.
There are people who are for no one,
For whom there is no one.
They are two sides of a circle.

The first is clad in shadow-black,
Who sails down a river of blood,
Deeper still, never glancing back.

The second, alabaster white,
Who watches over life and love,
A justice bitter as winter's bite.
Why are they not "for" one another?
Although both share a love for something greater than themselves, each stands in the way of the other's dream.

Dorito chips and mountain dew,
The bread and butter of our youth,

Kino Der Toten,
Where the strange portal lays,
Black Ops Zombies,
I'd play to the end of days.
I love Black ops zombies!

my Mother, seems to have given up on the children.
and her health, seems to be
failing her.
irony, seems to be the only consistent thing
About the whole scenario.
however, it never ceases to amaze me
Her ability, to carry out her responsibilities
without ever fully being there.
