It always ends the same. I gave you all my heart just to watch it get thrown away, thrown away. It takes a toll on my soul because I’m starting to believe that love’s just a game we play. Is it all just a game?
One day I’ll heal but I’ll be covered in scars, and I’ll never forget watching it all fall apart when you finally came clean about the lies and the games that you played from the start. It’s like every second we spent together is always on repeat in the back of my mind. What was I thinking when I gave you my life? You knew it would end. You knew this would die.
You’ll never find another one like me. I think I’d give you another chance if you deserved one. I think I’d have room in my heart but I simply reserved none. I’d let you beg on your knees for forgiveness at last but you’re just a mistake. Please give me my life back.
You made me so insecure and unsure of everything I thought was real. I just wish I could rewind and go back to a time when I knew what it was like to feel. I hope someday someone ruins you the way you ruined me. I just want you to know how it feels.
I want you to see it’s like my heart was made to be broken. Why can’t I let go? Now that it’s over I just need you to know. I think I’d give you another chance if you deserved one. I think I’d have room in my heart but I simply reserved none. I’d let you beg on your knees for forgiveness at last but you’re just a mistake. Please give me my life, give me my life back.
They say it’s better to have loved than never at all, but I can’t seem to find any good in being thrown at the wall. I’m not sure if I can stand up from this fall. I lay tossing and turning and trying to forget. I thought I’d be over you by now. With all you put me through, I’m full of regret.
I wish I could just forget somehow. You’ll never find another one like me. I think I’d give you another chance if you deserved one. I think I’d have room in my heart but I simply reserved none. I’d let you beg on your knees for forgiveness at last but you’re just a mistake. Please give me my life back. Please give me my life back, give me my life back. Give me my life
One of the most beautiful, regal, dignified, and awe-inspiring creatures on earth, the Bearded Vulture hails from one of most maligned and shamed castes of avians that exists, Scavengers. This one happens to be my #1 favorite bird and has a 9-foot wingspan sooo….
QUESTION: Can we hope to preserve, in the midst of modern America, any such remnant of our continent’s primordial landscape, any such sample of true wildness—a gloriously inhospitable place, full of predators and prey, in which nature is still allowed to be red in tooth and claw?Can that sort of place be reconciled with human demands and human convenience? Time alone, and our choices, will tell. But if the answer is yes, the answer is Yellowstone.

YELLOWSTONE the battle for the american west
May 2016 National Geographic magazine by natgeo
Maybe artificial intelligence will not be the machines that disdainfully wipe us out, but instead, will be the long-awaited “little child” who finally leads our species out of its vicious cycles of violence, red in tooth and claw.
Humans evolved as prey animals. According to Sapiens author, Yuval Harari, for a overwhelming majority of our evolution, we were bear and tiger food.On the run. We hid in caves. We nervously scanned every bramble and horizon for predators. And so we developed the quick-twitch fight-or flight reactivity of prey animals, always on guard. Always ready to strike.In other words, we evolved as beings of fear. Only recently have we discovered the spear, the arrow, the gun, the hellfire missile.
And so the big gift the Earth has received in recent history has been a violently reactive fear-based prey animal given sudden god-like killing power.
