fight for sanity

Poems from the war in Afganistan

Last Stand
My last day in the desert
My last day in this sand
I hope I never come back
To this tragic barren land

Many hot days
And many moons have passed
I don’t want to fight this war anymore
My sanity won’t last

Towns have been taken
Towns have been lost
Towns have been taken back again
How many lives has it cost?

This war will not end
The stakes are far too high
A few friends are gone already
How many more will die?

Alex Cockers,

I hate hate hate that my moods can change at the drop of a hat. One second I’m fine, the next I’m anything but fine and I’m fighting for my own sanity. And you know what’s great? No one really cares or believes me because if I tell anyone they’ll just be like ‘but you were fine half and hour ago…’
I KNOW I FINE HALF AN HOUR AGO. Now I’m obviously NOT fine.

Since I have no one else to tell, I guess ill tell tumblr.

The day she left, she took a part of me with her. The part of me that keeps me sane at night. When its dark and im alone and the demons in my mind start dancing to my thoughts. Not a single sound in the background yet the only thing I can hear is my thoughts of her, of us, screaming at the top of their fucking lungs as my mind just unravels at the scene. Im trying to leave it in the past, and I really do mean that but I can’t believe I lost her. I knew it would be hard but I didn’t think that it would be this tough. Preoccupied most of the time but as soon as night falls, im alone in my mind and its really bad this time. Im fighting my corner but I dont have much in me left. Fighting myself in my own sanity. Every hit I take I get from myself. Every time I fall, its because I pushed myself. I help myself back up only to throw myself back down. I need this to end. I need my sleep. I need the part of me she took, back.

Hey @waynecoyne5 @stevendrozd @spacefacemusic check out this weird awesome performance in 2000, Chicago !!
Suddenly everything has change and the gash !! It’s killer guys !! “The Gash (Battle Hymn For The Wounded Mathematician)” Aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa
Aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa
Aa aaa
Ooo ooo ooo ooo

Is that gash in your leg
Really why you have stopped?
‘Cause I’ve noticed all the others
Though they’re gashed, they’re still going
'Cause I feel like the real reason
That you’re quitting, that you’re admitting
That you’ve lost all the will to battle on

Will the fight for our sanity
Be the fight of our lives?
Now that we’ve lost all the reasons
That we thought that we had

Still the battle that we’re in
Rages on till the end
With explosions, wounds are open
Sights and smells, eyes and noses
But the thought that went unspoken
Was understanding that you’re broken
Still the last volunteer battles on

Battles on

Slayer Traits First Year (on Wattpad) There are whispers about the Slayer Family. A Family of courageous humans that protect the Innocent from Darkness. There is another powerful being among them, The Slayer. This is not about the Slayer though, this is about Kyria Salyeria who has to attend SMT Academy in order to achieve her goal of becoming a Level AA Slayer and fight to keep her sanity! Her Tormentor is out there though, and Kyria is starting wonder what it really wants and who she really wants to protect…I suck at descriptions and summaries. Just read the damn thing, it has monsters and magic!

Today, everyone I saw (with the exception of my heart pieces and Bug) upset me in some way.
Some gross brain goop has grabbed ahold of me, and Gil is making me shower to try to wash some of today’s ick away. It’s good to have someone else actively fighting for my sanity.

JJ Davenport’s a witch whose lived with this particular understanding her entire life.

“Yes, there are monsters which exist in the world that we live in, and it’s okay to be afraid of them.
But it’s not okay to let them win, and it’s not okay to be one of them.”

And now, this faith of hers has faltered due to a terrible tragedy hitting her and everyone in her life. Can life really be this black and white? Or should boundaries be stretched in order to fight the good fight? She does not know anymore. Add to this confusion and torn heart of her’s, a change of home, a green eyed friend she had left behind, a fight with her one of her best mates and the knowledge that the man who was behind her broken childhood is once again alive, she will have to fight to keep her sanity alive. Fight to survive.

Will she be able to do it? Or will her demons drown her?
Join her as she tries to renew her friendship with our ‘Chosen One’ as they battle a pink-toad and Death Eaters during their fifth year at Hogwarts.
