The Paradoxical Commandments

April 4, 2014 at 11:06 am (Poetry)

“The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”
Kent M. Keith, The Silent Revolution: Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council

Confident – Me?

April 2, 2014 at 2:24 pm (Uncategorized)

I’ve just been told by a friend, that I’ve appeared to be confident over the past two days. More confident than they have seen me more.

Thank you. I just wish I felt that confident.

Something About Gender

March 5, 2014 at 9:47 am (Poetry)

This would be how I feel most of the time.
Apart from with my family, who just see me as me.

Something About Gender

I’m not a girl
Because according to everyone else I’m unable to be one
Because girls are supposed to be spineless
Supposed to be weak
Supposed to be small
Supposed to be quiet

So I must be a boy
Because that’s what the world sees in me
It sees courage
It sees passion
It sees anger
It sees a swinging crowbar

But I can’t be a boy
Because according to everyone else I’m not male
Because I have breasts
I have ovaries
I have a uterus
I have a vagina

So I’m not a girl
But I’m not a boy
I’m too rough but I’m soft
I kick up my heels but sometimes I wear heels
I wear rings but sometimes they’re worn on a fist
I sit slouched with my legs open and a knife in my hand

But I’m not a tranny
But I respond to “woman”
And I respond to “boy”
And I can be called “he” and “she” and answer to both
Because I don’t know which one I should answer to
Because apparently neither apply

Have you ever…

February 5, 2014 at 7:52 pm (Poetry)

Have you ever spoken with someone, only to be left with the feeling that they are not interested even though they answer you?

Have you ever been sat in a room full of people and felt that you are alone?

Have you ever sat and cried, then wonder why?

Hoobastank – The Reason

December 14, 2013 at 10:49 pm (Music, Poetry)

I heard this on the way home. So I thought that I would share it with you all.
————————————
I’m not a perfect person
There’s many things I wish I didn’t do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I’m sorry that I hurt you
It’s something I must live with every day
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
That’s why I need you to hear

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

And the reason is you
And the reason is you
And the reason is you

I’m not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I’ve found a reason to show
A side of me you didn’t know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

Linkin Park – The Messenger

November 1, 2013 at 10:01 pm (Music, Poetry)

I wonder how I missed this one.
Just been listening to LP on YouTube.
This is rather emotional, imo.
—————————————-
When you feel you’re alone
Cut off from this cruel world
Your instinct’s telling you to run

Listen to your heart
Those angel voices
They’ll sing to you
They’ll be your guide
Back home

When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
It keeps us kind

When you’ve suffered enough
And your spirit is breaking
You’re growing desperate from the fight

Remember you’re loved
And you always will be
This melody will bring you right
Back home

When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind

Ohhhhhh Ohhhhhhh!
Ohhhhhh Ohhhhhhh!
Ohhhhhh Ohhhhhhh!

The Periodic Table in Cross Stitch

October 13, 2013 at 7:23 pm (Other Hobbies)

I am impressed at how amazing this looks.
It is a pretty amazing idea. Take a hobby, craft something, have fun and make some money for charity.
So you have fun and then feel good about it

Have a look at the table:
