tread on this

Human Hearts

Human hearts were never meant to tread
upon the tired dust of old familiar streets
they were made to fearlessly sail instead
upon rolling waves of turquoise sheets 

Not designed or created to be tied down
following their herd forever afraid to try 
instinctively yearning for something more
on wings human hearts were born to fly 

Oft disdainful of this world’s tried and true 
human hearts desire the great unknown 
could they be expected to settle for less
each having been conceived in love alone

The Secret of Life

The secret and mysterious purpose of our individual lives is to learn to recognize and control fear. Once we can do so it becomes possible for us to be kind, compassionate and generous. All hatred, covetousness, greed and violence ultimately stems from fear. The fearless tread the Earth like Gods.

This is the basis for all religion, philosophy, and psychology.

What about those who might say “what about duty to our God”? I say wonderful. Do your duty to your God with one exception and that is if your God tells you to hate others who are different from you. A God who hates is no true God.

“I tread the path of Righteousness. Though it be paved with broken glass, I will walk it barefoot; though it cross rivers of fire, I will pass over them; though it wanders wide, the light of the Emperor guides my step.”

Salutations! Recite "Shakespeare Sonnet 130 My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun" to us plz?

okay I’m glad to say my cough is gone

 Shakespeare sonnet 130

“My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare”

West of Home

I got off the plane in San Fransisco and you hadn’t called.
Left my wallet in the back of the cab first thing
manufactured crisis, isn’t it sweet
to worry about credit cards instead?
You hadn’t called and I impressed big brother
with easygoing tongueroll lies -
yes, waiter, I’m 21
no, Daddy, I don’t like the taste of whiskey
In San Fransisco I numbed and numbed
you hadn’t called I numbed
I sat in a bathtub coldbox hotel room
and thought about drowning
not myself but
Can’t you just tread water is it hard to tread water how the hell do you tread water -

In San Fransisco I broke and decided
California all is lostland wasteland hopeless.
I belong to the east coast, please,
Mama, let me go home.
I was in San Fransisco when you called.

I question whether or not I am important to anyone. Whether I am thought of when I am not there. Everyone feels important to me. In my heart always, that’s how I run my ship. But I question whether or not I’ve done enough to make ppl feel safe and happy around me. I tho feel of no real consequence and like the trials and struggles I have aren’t really worth discussing or aren’t worthy recipients of comfort. I am stubbornly lonely in this way and lately especially. I am replete w/ the exhaustion of pursued functionality. I feel as tho I tread water emotionally moving from small island to small island of faith and self-solidarity. It’s a hard fucking burden and I honestly just want someone to hold it for me for just a few minutes, to offer a shoulder to sleep on. I feel like I’m not taking as good a care of my loved ones as I could, B especially.
There are hard things in my heart and I want to talk about it, I don’t want to talk I about it, I want to talk about it. What could I possibly say that wouldn’t be self-absorbed or dramatic?
I just hope I can bring enough meaning to people’s lives, to ease their burden because while I feel so heavy others’ pain does not. I just hope I can bring meaning to a person because life isn’t easy.
I mean say I feel so beyond the ability to comfort myself so I feel a deep desire to comfort others. There is no limit to empathy. But things are hard in my heart and I feel as though my heart is on its knees with its palms upturned as if to say to the sky “please show me the way.”

theroyalwitch  asked:

👄 - Are they attracted to immoral behavior? If so, what specifically are they drawn to? :^)

God, yes.

Birds of a feather flock together, after all. What might not be as predictable, however, is the fact that the one committing said immoral behavior has to fit a certain standard and style.

For instance, there’s nothing more attractive than a woman that treads that line of confidence and cocky while doing arguably terrible things without ever actually crossing that line. On the other hand, were a man doing the same thing, Jayley would be immediately put off if he were more confident than casual. Both would have to maintain an air of grace that Jayley simply doesn’t have.

As for things that Jayley’s specifically attracted to:

  • Gratuitous amounts of violence
  • Hands-on sort of people
  • Good liars and cheats
  • People who are well aware that their intentions are cruel
  • Those that have a high regard for life and yet take it so easily
  • Women that are completely willing to put their cigarette out in the eye of the person that buys them a drink
  • Pettiness

And, well, you get the idea.

Those on the left represent a threat to capitalist hegemony, whereas those on the right do not – in the above picture and on the political spectrum. You see the same disparity regarding the number of (and responses from) cops between the Occupy movement/Black Lives Matter and the Tea Party bullshit; one set of movements is challenging a dominant paradigm that the system is built around (white supremacist capitalism), while the other is pushing for further entrenchment into said paradigm. The Tea Party challenges nothing (“don’t tread on [the capitalist bosses]”); Occupy and BLM hint at a resurgence of leftist movements, and the establishment (yes, the capitalists and the state) doesn’t like that.
