i just want to be invited to the funeral.
i'll buy a new suit. sunday best.
take the train to london
by myself. take some time to reflect.
stand at the back if that's better
i'll probably avoid meeting your family
because i'll still feel guilty.
about romanticising my own suicide
and telling you death was beautiful,
when i knew that you were just as unhealthy
as me. i was a black miasma.
noxious laughing gas.
i'll bring flowers for your coffin
if they survive the train ride.
the last thing i said to you was
how i felt like falling in love
so i could cultivate a broken heart
and finally kill myself,
you were always one step ahead.
You're like the sun:
yet I endlessly feel your burn.
If I have too much of you
I might become ill skinned,
but if I don't have enough of you
I would lack vital vitamins.
If I don't see you
I wouldn't wake,
If you aren't there
life wouldn't be either;
for without you
life is just an absent dream.
ACESS THE LOVE YOU/ WE ARE. --
TAKE YOUR POWER BACK --
TO ALIGH AND END THE OLD GAME.
WAKE UP WAKE UP
NEW TIMES ARE HERE
OUT WITH OLD IN WITH THE NEW.
FRIENDS GATHER AND LISTEN.
SEE THE NEW PAR-DINE OF LIGHT AND LOVE
START WITH THE CELEBRATION OF SELF
WITH WALKING EMPOWERED
WITH HAVING POSITIVE THOUGHTS
WITH RELEASING OLD SEPARATION AND FEARS
TO ENVISION DREAMS.
INHERENT TO ALL
IS ABILITY TO DO WITHOUT LIMITATIONS.
GAME OF SEPARATION IS OVER.
WE ARE DIVINE ORIGINALS
SACRED AND CAPABLE
OF RECREATING OUR FUTURE.
THE REBIRTH IS OCCURRING RIGHT NOW.
LIVE THE DREAM
I'm low on energy
But I've got fire in my heart
I want to wake up from this sleep
My head is filled with water
You watched me grow,
my colors shined like diamonds,
but you forgot about me.
You forgot how fragile I can be,
now I have fallen at your feet,
yet you can’t see me.
My tides break, My shores quake,
and my coral fray
washing away with the waves.
Climate change can be a serious thing,
it’s up to you how it changes.
You think you’re so small?
You think you don’t cause change?
Oh how ignorant you are,
you are too blind to see,
you even effect me.
Just because you can’t see something
doesn’t change if that something is real.
Just because you can’t feel something
doesn’t make it less physical.
You think you are insignificant?
Then look closer at your life,
for even now you’re affecting
your surroundings just by being here.
Is that not the point to living;
to experience and grow with
Well I am serious
we need to make a change.
Our Earth needs us to wake up,
and take notice of what we need to do
to help her to keep growing
and stop life from dying.
We need to make the change
before the climate makes it for us.

And as the time goes, it goes.
Take me to the sparkling streets
away from my damp sleep.
But if I don't wake up
and if you find that I'm gone
don't worry about me.
You would be my last thoughts
and being with you was the quality and loveliness of life.
And if the world stopped spinning
And this night was all we had
don't you see?
Your face would be the last I saw
and with that a smile on mine.
Your presence was my joy, my joy.
Wake me up anytime.
I've tasted life so sweet
and it's out there
