hold head up high

IchiRuki Month- Day 5: Lyrics

“Why not just look up to the sky,

while the storm slowly passes by?

But then remember

it doesn’t matter,

it’ll rain forever.”

“I have always been told

that the clouds will find their home,

that I should be strong and fight,

hold my head up high, 

there’s no cure.”

“Not alone…

I’m not strong enough…

You were the one to stop the rain alone!”


Only a segment of the song I’ve been writing for a while now. I wanted to draw something as well, but time. I will probably record it when I’m finished (in a distant future), so you can listen to the sweet-but-also-angsty melody~


the narrative that there’s a shortage of good men will have women feeling like

1) they have to settle

2) they have to compete

and all that does is make it easy for the average joe to end up with an amazing woman who’s so desperate to be noticed that she will take any old schmuck

the way the system is set up is that you are left questioning your worth if you’re not in love by 18 and married by 22. and that if you don’t look a certain way then you’ll never find love. it’s all a set up. it’s all set up so you walk around with your head down. and when you look down, you see the scraps on the floor. but if you pick your head up, and hold your head high, you see the cream of the crop. the best of the best. the men worth your time.

it’s all a scam. to make you kill yourself to be worthy and ignore the fact that you don’t have to be perfect to be worthy. you already are. the system is set up to elevate the average dude, and lower the extraordinary women.

it’s a set up

No Shame Day

I am writing about my husband, who is completely blind.

I love my husband. We have been together for 9 years, 9 months. Wed for 1 year, 10 months. He is my best friend. My other half. My biggest supporter. My passionate musician. My hot pepper lover. He is silly, handsome, smart, hilarious, light hearted, artistic, and so so sweet. I am so thankful I get to call him my husband. 

He has been through so much. Knocked down so many times and yet, he can still hold his head up high. He inspires me daily. Not everyday is his best, but he rolls with the punches. He has taught me so much about life…  How to play various instruments, how to deal with people, how to smile when I am down, how to BBQ, how to swim in the ocean, how to cook, how to think more positively, and most importantly, how to love everyone & everything around me.

I am grateful to be his wife.

Any other season I would have been massively disappointed. Angry. Frustrated. But hopeful for the next year. Because there’s always next year, isn’t there? Always the chance to try again.

But this season is different. Because Steven Gerrard doesn’t get to look to next season. He doesn’t get the chance to try again. He doesn’t get to stand up and brush off the dust and say “We go again” just like he has for the past decade through triumph and disappointment. He can only take one last look out across that Wembley pitch knowing that he won’t set foot on it again, and then go home, trying to hold his head up high through the final moments of his swan song.

And that, more than anything else in the world, breaks my heart.

Joe laughed as he picked Cory up, holding him high above his head. “Silly boy. You love to play, huh?” he asked, their son giggling uncontrollably as he spoke. Joe carefully placed him in his lap once again, watching as he crawled over his lap and into Demi’s. “Your turn to play, mommy.” Joe winked, winding his arm around her waist.


Ehh, friendship isn’t included in our rocky relationships description. Besides, she’s way out of my league. Have you even seen her? She’s so elegant, keeps holding her head up high even after what happened, and she’s way better than m- …you know what, nevermind. 

…And added onto that, there is a genuine border dividing us, both our clans and the river. Meeting up to chat would be a hassle, and risky too, what with the tension running high between our clans. Gatherings are too public as well, and cats suspect we absolutely hate each other- which i don’t! I don’t hate her, i dont think i could. She’s too nice.

"Oliver something is wrong with Matt..." she holds up the obviously high Canadian

Oliver tilted his head a little in confusion then stared at Matt. He had a blank face and had to look at the Canadian for a little while before he snickered. “Um……Francine? I know what’s wrong with him.”

The two "bullied" Sens fans at the Habs game
  • <p><b></b> So I read that article about the two sisters being "bullied" and "abused" by habs fans at the habs vs sens game and this really pissed me off.<p/><b></b> I'm a habs fan who lives in Ottawa and I experience this shit everyday. They make themselves seem like such victims when they easily could've ignored it just as I do.<p/><b></b> My whole life, I've been bullied for the jersey I wear and the team I support. I had a Montreal Canadiens pencil case that was constantly thrown in the garbage at school cause' kids thought it was funny. I've had people give me the middle finger on the way to school because of the habs backpack I wore everyday. Sometimes I'd wear my Carey price jersey to school and kids would threaten to poor their drinks on it.<p/><b></b> Bottom line, yes what those guys did was wrong, but I've experienced way worse then just what I mentioned. I suck it up and hold my head high cause I'm strong and love my team. I can't tell you how many times I've been called a French frog. I don't ask for 15 minutes of fame on the news. No fan base is all angels, but those girls are kinda acting like pussies. Just my opinion. Rant over.<p/></p>


Dream crawlers are a billion colours
Poor eyesight makes it impossible
To see every shade of your whimsy
¡Ándale! It took so long to find your name
Hold your head up high indeed
You are a knight-errant’s steed
Why do you insist on stopping?
The grass is sweet and the day is long
Ah I see, you wish to eat
¡Ándale! ¡Ándale! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba!

Michael Baumgart

I miss the times when you were here
telling me to have no fear
To hold my head up high and strong
add happy notes to my sad song

I miss the way you look at me
As if I were too blind to see
The path I’m on might hurt and scathe
But all goes well if you just have faith

I miss the sound of your sweet voice
Through bitter times a saving noise
That told me what was right and wrong
But rang in my ears for far too long

A caring person, you were such
That helped and hurt me, oh so much
You’d guide and mislead me through the day
You left me lonely when I’d rather you stay

Over things like that you had no control
A rock set in motion will continue to roll
No matter how hard you tug and heave
You were always pushed and forced to leave

Then one day you never returned
My tears so hot they almost burned
Aware now about what I lack
But crying and mourning wont bring you back

For me to let out what I need to say
I can’t do much more than pray
No longer am I weak, my hearts quite strong
From adding a happy chorus to a sad, sad song

This song is beautiful and deserves all the praise. <3

Dear Daughter
Hold your head up high
There’s a world outside
That’s passing by
Dear Daughter
Never lose yourself
Remember that
You’re like nobody else

As Life throws you in
To the unknown
And you feel like you’re
Out there all alone

These are words
That every girl should have a chance to hear
There will love
There will be pain
There will be hope
There will be fear
Through it all year after year
Stand or fall I will be right here
For you

Dear Daughter
Don’t worry about those stupid girls
If they try to bring you down
It’s cause they’re scared and insecure
Dear Daughter
Don’t change for any man
Even if he promises the stars
And takes you by the hand

Life throws you in
To the unknown
And you feel like you’re
Out there all alone

These are words
That every girl should have a chance to hear
There will love
There will be pain
There will be hope
There will be fear
Through it all year after year
Stand or fall I will be right here
For you

Dear daughter
I was just like you
And just like me
You’re gonna make it through

These are words
That every girl should have a chance to hear
There will love
There will be pain
There will be hope
There will be fear
Through it all year after year
Stand or fall I will be right here
And After all I will be right here
For you

anonymous asked:

I want to get over my current shitty boyfriend, but we've been together for long and he had beautiful sides to him but after our little month break up he changed to someone I really hoped he wouldn't. Now instead of focusing on moving forward in life him I think about how am I going to move on alone. I want to meet new ppl especially older, I love older ppl. I'm tired of being treated like shit & getting new names by him such as dumbass,or skank or bitch. I do nothing but be someone good to him

hold your head up high and don’t let him get to you he’s being immature just be yourself and be confident and you’ll meet new people i promise just move forward in your life and do you
