still too proud to sink

ASK   I try not to remember my real name, my blog is my personal space for things that make me smile like the Beatles and poetry. I have a pacemaker, a love for firefighting and a deep interest in medicine. I also really like putting on lipstick and taking photos of myself.

I wonder if “I’m sorry” means the same thing to you that it does to me.

I see a bleeding world
One whose hands are too busy seeing, speaking, and hearing no evil to take the hand of help

One whose races are racing to the finish line for supremacy instead of equality

We’ve all got hearts beating in our chests, but my hearts been beaten out of my chest
Yes, its been BEATEN out of my chest

I know I can’t be the only one

This is supposed to be land of the brave, home of the free but
Who took the human out of humanity

Let’s stop the world from bleeding out

Americans didn’t give a shit about ISIS slaughtering everyone in their path until they started killing Christians. Now it’s “Why are we just standing by while those barbaric Muslims kill our people? No one deserves this”. Motherfucker they have been killing EVERYONE not just those you can relate with, in a single day they slaughtered 300 Yazidi men and kidnapped their families because they refused to convert to Islam you trifling fucks

I wanna show you how for every breath he takes it’s like New Year’s Day in China
He has golden coined confetti’d lungs
And red envelope lips begging to be opened
Chest rising and falling like all the great empires of time, and
I want first class, top of the shoulder seats to this fair

And his lashes
Lashes that could cause tsunamis
In Japan if you believe in the butterfly effect
But I want to stand in his hurricane
And take cover beneath the veil of his eyelids
That way when the curtains pull back for the show,
I can watch his dreams on his eyelid screen
And ride the waves of his tear ducts like I was a real California girl

"
Let me show you about him
