Tonight, I am a mere somber figure Why won't the world listen? Religion vs reason, a confusing blur Blinded by their resentment Resentment which breeds hatred I fight a losing battle of will The world keeps spinning venomously; discrimination and prejudice and verbal attack Hatred stirs up anger I am desperate to speak out It's simply a question of good and bad, I try to say My words are drowned out by anger Anger which reaks of malice It's a b...

You are beautiful, you are charming and regardless of the daunting crowd staring at you, you move with an air of effortlessness and effervescence. I watch as you breeze into the room, with poise that indicated confidence and demanded respect. How do you do it? “Just relax and smile!” You tell me. Please! Easier said than done.

The girl: Brave The getup: Purple gown with silver sprinklings. I made this sketch and I named it Brave! The state of my mind usually reflects on my drawing.

It's raining outside now, the tiny drops glistening on your windshield We sit in your car, the tiny space between us feels like the vast area between the earth and it's magnetic-field 'Are you cold?' I ask you, as I see you shiver 'It's the emptiness,' you reply. She says: This abyss of nothingness, it is not living It is darkness and drowning and gasping for air I want an end to this emptiness; before it cosumes me This is not living. 'My dear g...
