how won-derful life–is…now you’re in the………….woooooorld

“I’m not coming in.”
     I’m not coming home.
     How can I when all the
     Parts of me that belonged
     Here burned in that mountain?
     We won the battle.
     I lost the war.

“Take care of them for me.”
     Take care of yourself, too.
     If there’s one thing I regret
     Most, it’s that I tarnished
     The shining gold of the
     Sunshine that lives in
     Your chest.

“…What I did to get them here.”
     What I would have done
     If it meant saving your light.
     I would topple a thousand empires
     If I thought I could take back
     Every crime I have seared
     Into your skin.

“I bear it so they don’t have to.”
     I bear it so you won’t
     Have to wear the weight of
     My guilt like chains around
     Your neck. Your soul is far
     Too free to ever be
     Restrained.

“I don’t know.”
     I don’t know where to go.
     I’m not entirely sure I 
     Know who I am anymore.
     I’m afraid if I look in
     Your eyes, I’ll lose my
     Last piece.

“May we meet again.”
     You beg me to stay.
     I leave you behind.

Auschwitz-Birkenau

On October 31st, I visited Auschwitz and Birkenau on a bus from Krakow. In Poland and many other countries throughout Europe, November 1st is a day to remember and honor the dead. I thought it would be appropriate to go around then.

There is no appropriate time. 

I do not know how to describe what my experience was like. I have heard stories, seen films, met survivors, and studied what occurred many times. But there is nothing like being there. 

I have never felt air so heavy.

I was alone in a group of strangers, and I think this was one of the hardest experiences of all of my travels. We were shown where the prisoners slept, where they ate, where they went to the bathroom. We were shown where the officers slept, where they ate, where they went to the bathroom.

We were shown where the prisoners worked. 

We were shown walls and walkways where buckets of unnecessary blood was spilt and has slowly faded away over time.   

We were shown mountains of shoes, hair, clothing, and belongings. All stripped away from their owners upon arrival. 

By the time we arrived at Birkenau, where many of the prisoners had “lived,” night had fallen and it only made the experience more eerie. In the distance I could faintly see the train tracks fading away, lined by watch towers lightly drawn in shadows against the deep blue sky. 

It is one thing to hear stories and read about it. But to see where the most gruesome violence occurred puts it all into perspective. 

No- actually nothing can put something like this into perspective. I will never understand. I will never understand how one human could believe what they were doing was okay. How could a human believe another life was not worth theirs? One human, hundreds of humans, thousands of humans, millions of humans believed it was okay. 

We say to remember what happened. To never forget. We do not want history to repeat itself. 

But this was the hardest part for me. It seems the world has forgotten. Genocides are happening all over, right now - in Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Central African Republic, Myanmar, and the Sudan. In sadness, I am sure my list is not comprehensive. 

The atrocities during the Holocaust were enormous and very efficiently carried out. They were systematic and they made a gigantic impact in the western world. 

And we talk about it. 

But what about current genocide. What are we doing about it?

What makes one life worth more than another? (I do not believe anything should).

And why is it still happening.

Elephant Love Medley - Moulin Rouge Part 2

 Natsu: In the name of love, one night in the name of love.
 Lucy: You crazy fool, I won’t give in to you.

 Natsu: Don’t leave me this way,
I can’t survive without your sweet love, oh baby
Don’t leave me this way.
 Lucy: You’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs.

 Natsu: I look around me and I see, it isn’t so, oh no.
 Lucy: Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs.

 Natsu: Well what’s wrong with that? I’d like to know.
‘Cause here I go again!
Love lifts us up where we belong,
Where eagles fly, on a mountain high.
 Lucy: Love makes us act like we are fools,
Throw our lives away, for one happy day.

 Natsu: We could be heroes! Just for one day.
 Lucy: You, you will be mean.

 Natsu: No I won’t! 
Lucy: And I, I’ll drink all the time.

 Natsu: We should be lovers.
 Lucy: We can’t do that.

 Natsu: We should be lovers, and that’s a fact.
 Lucy: Though nothing, will keep us together.

 Natsu: We could steal time…
Both: Just for one day. We could be heroes, forever and ever.
We could be heroes, forever and ever. We could be heroes… 
Natsu: Just because I will always love you.

 Lucy: I
Both: Can’t help loving you
 Lucy: How Wonderful life is
Both: Now you are in the world"

Fairy Tail - NaLu

Scenes - Moulin Rouge

I breathe knowing there’s life in me, I dream knowing there’s something else. I love because there is so much to love, to learn from. friends are a passing frenzy. I write to understand my thoughts but it makes me understandable. stand by me, I’m free. but im not free. I’m caged. I like to laugh, I love hearing others laugh. to travel is to see the whole world, to see my whole self. to experience others, things, and places. is there such a place to free me? others hurt me and I accept it. I see their pain and I accept it. mistakes are memories made. living is the most beautiful thing out there. life is short but it’s the longest thing we know of. I belong In the mountains, I belong on the beach. I wish of no one understanding.

A Little Everlark Drabble

I was listening to the Moulin Rogue soundtrack as I cleaned my kitchen today and was inspired.

Nicole Kidman is a kick ass Aussie lady, but the MOST kick ass of them all is sponsormusings. I hope this little drabble makes you smile dear! <3

(Also congrats on wrapping up MoS!!! I can’t wait to go read it!)
