At length I hear nothing.
I am thrown into a world
Astranged of my home.
Given to those who speak.
Speak with themselves
Speak with… at… me.
Desculpa, nao falo…
I am locked
For the first time
Inside my mouth.
Nao sei… no know…
No… nao… no no…
Comment ca va toi?
Nice to meet you too.
How can the wanderer rest?
Alone on a wide endless road.
The wanderer knows all ends.
Knows there is no bed to be laid,
That would slack his quest.
He goes on for days, for nights…
For reasons with no ends.
Not to be found amongst treasure.
Never, the sleakist would tempt.
The wanderer searches for nothing.
He knows not what he seeks.
Satisfied is, the humble wanderer.
A thousand times my name be called,
Yet, in the mirror, devil is all I know.
Dear Brave souls,
This is to every woman, man, child, standing today against a wave of hatred and separation. You are the forefront of an age-old battle, given down through the generations; one of power and domination. Know that progression is where we find a brighter future. Know that we are stronger together. Know that we fight for each other unselfishly, rather than for personal power. Unity can defeat greed. And if we stay together, if we stay smart we will stay stronger than those who wish to separate the progress we have made from the future we are building. Do not let those who look to the cruelty of history for their inspiration shake your resolve to do what you know to be right. Stand together and keep each other safe. With much love.
One of seven billion.
What is one heart amongst a crowd?
A single beat among thousands?
A drop of blood in a river of viens?
If all were silence
The beating in a crowd
Would be all that’s heard.
The deafening thumping.
All contained in our bone cages.
What is one heart amongst a crowd?
A life within a network?
A human in all of humanity.
With every new life each year grows
One year longer.
With every death one year grows
One year shorter.
Time is spent at the speed of a second
Over the length of a lifetime.
What is one heart? Amongst seven billion?
The mind is a funny thing as it runs on its own. Self-perpetuation whizzing and burning on a course to soar out of your mouth on its way to the sky. The pulse beats in the bone orb imperceptible to us. Until it complains. The pounding of an overworked thinker beating for a moment to feel weaker, a moment for the body to perpetuate on auto piolet. Fatigue is the crucks of the breaking of genius, that grand moment to test the mental medal. Wave after wave of sleep washes over the over worked and yet still bored mind. A and B fit the same and reverse in singular boredom. The trick of the weary and pleasure of the bored is to find how A & B are never combined. The mind is a funny thing when driven by the bored
Blindness falls on the children of the privileged. They come up and up and up and learn to replace themselves but not to better their surroundings. What care would they need put in anything that is not themselves? What effort should they really exude? How could they really make a difference? Their each only one person. Each only one. One made of each ignoring the problems around them. One made into the mass of blind that can no longer observe themselves in the objective. The one who breaks from the many has learned the subjectivity to be objective in an ignorant world. Our ignorant world. They have come up from the slums to the highs of education. And sad, sad knowledge of the truth of oppression. But the blind will not see if they continue to look at their own two feet.
I have a love of which I knew nothing of until the day she walked into my life. I can no longer see what is beyond the cloud of my horizon. For it is no longer only mine. But a future that is shared by her and I and if I were to use my powers of foresight to see what the world will bring for me, I would be excluding the beautiful possibility of that which is now mine and hers; to hold one another. It is the love of my life in my arms and on my shoulder as oft’ as the night falls. She is the flame that was waiting to burst forth. That false flicker I felt before has flittered back into its flint beginnings. Now a roaring inferno, hot breath of flames has brought me to the point of desperate infatuation with a woman I call my own.
It comes to a close,
The year that I oppose
While knowledge grows
From your throws
Every lie shows
Yet no one knows.
No one even cares.
