we live in a world of fools

I hate sex. I hate what it has done to me,

and those I love.


we were made fools of with our animal hands

and our questioning.  and now fail


in the mockery of orange light opening

in the windowsill.


I look to the bell jar, the blemish of the lily

like a spot on the lung, a paralysis of suffering.


everyone has forgotten me

that has touched me.


I fuse in the instant,

too alive


for an indifference to cruelty

too wounded for metamorphosis.


I’m going to live without you


shining weight of a rejected world

blue become of solitude, rather


a trace element

of what all my life I will remember,


“intense love always leads to mourning”.

50 Things To Remember In Life

Dear Friend,

There are 365 days in a year
And you and I both know from many unfortunate personal experiences,
That not all of those days will be good.
For some, the majority of those days will be a breeze
For others, each day will be a trial.
The world is a difficult place.
The world is an interesting place.
I am here to give you a few reminders
To keep up with this trying world we live in.

1. Follow your own heart and dreams. Don’t ever let anyone else tell you what you can or can’t do.

2. If you want something enough, you will find a way to make it happen.

3. You will meet people who hate you, and you will meet people who love you, and you will meet people who you think love you. Don’t be fooled. Some people are just passing by in your story called life. They’re there to teach you something, so always be aware.

4. Always remember that bad things and situations you don’t like will end. It may take minutes, hours, days, or years, but never forget that they will end eventually. You can get through anything.

5. You are your own person, not anyone else’s. Don’t let people take control of you and change your beautiful self.

6. The people in your life who make you giggle and smile in the darkest of times are ones you need to keep with you forever. There is always the potential for hard times, and you’ll need someone to cheer you on.

7. You do not have to live up to any standards or expectations. Family and peers and society are constantly telling us that we have to be a certain way, or else we aren’t good enough. Tune out of that thinking and just be yourself. That’s the best thing you can be.

8. Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. Being out of the box can bring on so many amazing new opportunities you never even thought existed.

9. A lot is going to happen to you during your lifetime, so let yourself feel anything and everything. Always feel as much as you can. It makes you experience things at a higher level and you can say, “Yes I know this feeling. I’ve been here before.”

10. A good cry cleanses the heart and mind and soul.

11. Appreciate the small things. They can teach you to love and be at peace with everything around you.

12. It’s okay to take a break from everyday duties once in a while.

13. Travel whenever possible, it opens the mind. Go on adventures in new places and learn about the world. You will come back a new person.

14. Get up the courage to talk to strangers. That’s how you meet people. Who knows, the next person you meet could end up being your new best friend.

15. Stand in the rain and breathe in the wide open air and absorb everything you can about the earth.

16. Long walks are something that can clear the mind and resolve many issues.

17. It’s okay to lay in bed with a book all day.

18. Look out the window and watch the snow silently fall. It’s one of the most peaceful and relaxing things you can do.

19. Remember that everyone is living their very own life with their own problems, so always be kind and respect others.

20. Keep and open mind and listen to people’s thoughts. You might discover more than you think.

21. You are not defined by your weight or skin color or career or the number of friends you have or your grades in school or your decisions. You are so much more than that.

22. Everyone makes mistakes in life, so don’t judge a person based on their decisions.

23. Keep your own limits and morals. Don’t give them up for anyone.

24. Live a little. Be spontaneous and experience all that you possibly can.

25. Aim to live a life that you will be proud of and content with when you’re 90 years old.

26. Things in life will tear you down, but time heals everything.

27. Rumors don’t help anyone. Don’t start or spread them.

28. Your soulmate is out there in the world searching for you too. Don’t lose hope. You’ll find each other one day.

29. Treat yourself once in a while.

30. Random acts of kindness can make someone’s day and it can make you feel good too.

31. You’re going to have to work if you want to live a truly happy life. Don’t cheat or make someone else do the work for you. That will only make an unfulfilled and empty life for you in the end.

32. Be proud of everything you do.

33. Self love never hurt anyone.

34. Find things to look forward to. It will keep you excited and more hopeful for the bright future.

35. Leave a piece of you in every place you go and with every person you meet.

36. Always listen to people. Everyone just wants to be heard and understood and feel like they matter to someone.

37. Do what is best for you in the long run, even if it hurts at first.

38. Love with all your heart and soul at every opportunity.

39. Never settle for less. You deserve the best and whatever makes you truly happy.

40. Don’t feel bad if someone doesn’t like you. It’s their loss because they won’t get to experience your magnificent presence.

41. Never fear love. Love can make you grow and blossom and teach you so much. Don’t fear it, but proceed with caution. Broken hearts will heal with time, but they are never fun.

42. Dancing silly to your favorite songs will guarantee some giggles and smiles.

43. Always sing in the shower, and when you’re home alone, sing as loud as you can.

44. Put effort into everything you do. It makes it all worthwhile and you feel better about it in the end. You can reflect and say “Look at this. I’m proud.”

45. Exercise makes you feel good and you’ll feel accomplished too. Try it sometime.

46. You are beautiful exactly how you are. Don’t deny yourself of your own loveliness.

47. You may not be perfect, because no one is, but you’re hella radiant, which is near perfection.

48. To grow as a person and expand your mind and soul, learn at least one new thing everyday.

49. Don’t beat yourself up about things you have no control over.

50. Happiness is not a goal or a point on a map. It is a state of being that everyone deserves.

Now my friend, I hope you can carry these things with you in your heart
Because every time you are down
You can always get back up.
Every time you are afraid
The fear won’t last forever.
This world and the people in it may knock you down
But you need to keep getting back up.
You have to.
Live, live, live.
Live your dream life. Make things happen.
It will be hard and it may seem hopeless and pointless sometimes,
But just remember that things really do get better.
The world is a difficult place.
The world is a beautiful place.
But only if you believe it to be.

Don’t lose hope.
I love you.

Sincerely, Me.

I know, I know I’ve let you down
I’ve been a fool to myself
I thought that I could
live for no one else

But now through all the hurt and pain
Its time for me to respect
the ones you love
mean more than anything.

So with sadness in my heart
I feel the best thing I could do
is end it all
and leave forever
whats done is done, it feels so bad
what once was happy now is sad
I’ll never love again
my world is ending

I wish that I could turn back time
‘cause now the guilt is all mine
can’t live without the trust from those you love.
I know we can’t forget the past
you can’t forget love and pride
because of that it’s killing me inside

It all returns to nothing, it all comes
tumbling down, tumbling down,
tumbling down,
it all returns to nothing, I just keep
letting me down, letting me down,
letting me down,
in my heart of hearts,
I know that I could never love again
I’ve lost everything
everything, everything
that matters to me,
matters in this world

I wish that I could turn back time
'cause now all the guilt is mine
can’t live without
the trust from those you love
I know we can’t forget the past
we can’t forget love and pride
because of that, its killing me inside

It all returns to nothing, it all comes
tumbling down, tumbling down,
tumbling down
it all returns to nothing, I just keep
letting me down, letting me down,
letting me down
It all returns to nothing, it all comes
tumbling down, tumbling down,
tumbling down
it all returns to nothing, I just keep
letting me down, letting me down,
letting me down

anonymous asked:

when will they stop abusing us tho?

They won’t? To paraphrase Kanye and Jay-Z, the motto seems to be stunt so hard motherfuckers wanna fine me. For celebs, this shit is working. So many are on the stunt train these days. Meanwhile I’m sitting here, to quote Kanye and Jay-Z, like that shit cray. LOL

This is the brave not-so-new world. Things are just more blatant these days–inside and outside the fandom.  Ironically, despite the fact that we’re living in the information age, it’s even easier to manipulate people. The fact that you can now tailor what you consume to your own tastes means unless you seek out a broader pov, you could very well be playing the fool.

But just from your question it seems you’re woke enough to know everything is not what it seems, Lawrence. Therefore, I say to you that you aren’t being abused. It’s the ones that don’t know any better or won’t accept that things are shady that are being abused. You, like a whole bunch of us, are just having a less than great experience as a fan due to said shadiness.

Knowledge is power. How can you get played if you recognize game? Stay woke, my friends.

i
I'm sorry I'm sorry I know I'm a fandom blog, I'm a personal blog, I'm normally just reblogging stupid shit but

This just is so personal.

This attack on the things I believe in.

I know you all think I’m an asshole and you’re not wrong, but I’m a person too, I don’t BELIEVE that other people don’t have a right to live and exist free of persecution, I don’t BELIEVE that our “enemy” is the people who live among us, I’m not so paranoid and hateful that I would blame a group of people.

I’m not actually angry, I’m more devastated by this election.

I’m disappointed in Americans, I’m disappointed that the entire world now sees us for what we are, bigots and fools at best and spiteful fools at worst.

We are human beings.

Our “enemies” are human beings.

Call me a bleeding heart liberal fag, but I don’t believe in borders, I don’t believe that separating ourselves from our species, which is more genetically similar to each other than any other species, is the key to salvation, I don’t believe that Muslims are terrorists and must be contained or that Mexicans are here to take everything we love away from us.

and I also don’t believe that a man who’s never held an political office should be in one of the most prestigious ones in the United States.

It’s like electing Elmo to Secretary of the treasury when that fucker can barely count.

This just…goes against everything I believe in.

I’m an asshole but I’m not that kind of asshole, I believe in human decency, I believe that in all my pettiness, deep down, I would help someone I despised, I believe that kindness makes a man stronger than cruelty, I believe that there are people in this world who should be commended for their efforts to make this world a better place.

I didn’t vote for trump because as spiteful as I can be, I’m not that spiteful.

And I’m devastated simply devastated to see a country I did love, for all the teasing and jokes about how much I hate it, fall like this.

Re: Third parties.

Certain states were never going to be a contest. Massachusetts, for instance, will probably never be red unless the apocalypse really does happen (I’m not discounting it, but hopefully the world keeps spinning tomorrow or we wake up on January 1, 2017, and someone’s like APRIL FOOLS). In that case, absolutely vote third party if you want to, particularly in smaller races.

But it takes a LOT of privilege to vote third party in a swing state. I won’t completely say “fuck you” for it because literally every prediction site was giving Clinton a nearly 100% chance of winning up until today, but I will say that I really hope you’re okay with four years of Donald Trump and what that will mean for your less privileged friends.

ON WHAT SHE’S LOOKING FORWARD TO AFTER LEAVING THE WHITE HOUSE

“My hopes are to recapture some of the everydayness, some anonymity. And we know that will take some time. But I always joke that I dream of opening up my front door and walking out without any notification, without any security.“

“….and it will be nice to open up the paper, look at the front page, and know that you’re not responsible for every headline… It’s sort of like, It’s not my job.”

ON THE OBSTACLES YOUNG WOMEN FACE AROUND THE WORLD

“…there are places in the world where families don’t believe that girls are worthy of an education. They’ll save money and send their sons to school, but they believe that it’s more important for their girls to stay home, get married early, care for the chickens, cook, and clean.”

ON THE STRATEGY BEHIND HER SOCIAL MEDIA USE

“We can fool ourselves into thinking that everybody is still watching the evening news, but I live with Generation Z, and I know that their habits, the way they take in information in, is so different. And they’ve changed… We’ve got to meet our constituents where they are, and they’re on Snapchat.”

Rant

I know it’s hard for people to understand, especially since we live in a world that puts pride in intercourse over any other sexual activity

But I find it so condescending when people say

“Oh, you just do foreplay then.”

As if my sex life is just snack after snack but I’m missing the main course?????

CALL IT SEX
IT IS SEX
I HAVE SEX

Just because I can’t accept a penis into myself (yet) doesn’t mean I’m just fooling around having meaningless fumbles, or whatever it is people seem to think we do together


“Foreplay” implies incompleteness. My sex life is whole on its own thanks.

P.S: shout out to the vast majority of my friends etc who are supportive and acknowledge that foreplay is just a term, and doesn’t actually define my intimacy.

Firstly, may I offer on behalf of all of us, I think, our thanks for
the incredible job you have done? A splendid effort. But, sadly, the world we live in has certain … rules, you understand? To be frank, the problem here is not that you are women. As such, that is. But you persist in maintaining that you are. You see? We can’t have that.’

‘You mean if we put on uniforms again, and swaggered around belching and saying “har har, fooled you all” that would be all right?’ said Polly.

[…]But the party was led by a man, am I right?’

‘Lieutenant Blouse tells me he is a man, sir,’ said Clogston. ‘Since he is an officer and a gentleman, I will take his word for it.’

‘Well, then, problem solved. These young ladies helped him. Smuggled him in, and so forth. Assisted him. Fine traditions of Borogravian womanhood and all that. Not soldiers at all. Give the man a big medal and make him a captain, and all this’ll be forgotten.’

Terry Pratchett, Monstrous Regiment

this part always gets me, the story suddenly becomes so real so damn real and depressing it makes you want to scream and punch things because of the injustice of it all

because pratchett didn’t really do escapism, he just presented you facets of reality disguised as stories. you catch glimpses of it underneath the fiction, but it never prepares you for the moments when he really goes for it, the narrative is stripped bare of its fantastical trappings and you’re staring into a portrait of society not unlike dorian gray’s

Can I be honest with you for a second? I’ve never wanted anything more than this in my entire life. You see, we fight day in and day out against all odds in hopes to attain that level of success that we crave so badly, to live our wildest dreams in a world so filled to the brim with skepticism that we sometimes have to scratch and claw for that light of optimism that keeps us going so we can know how it feels to truly fly high. And we refuse to be consumed by our surroundings, no matter how evil they may be. And it confounds me how much evil there is out there in today’s world; and so much of it dedicated to the sake of being fake or fooling others just so they can get by. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m not a perfect person. In fact, that word makes me sick. “Perfection,” a word thrown around like pennies to the fountain floor. And we soak up that scum like a filthy sponge. Well allow me to introduce myself. I am *not* perfect. I am sick, slugging sins, and sipping on false confidence… insatiable. I am stubborn. I am unnervingly persistent, and foolishly fishing for compliments to cope with my self-doubt. Now let me ask you this. Who the hell wants to be perfect?! I am proud of my flaws, and I wear them like a badge of honor on my shirt. I am good. I am evil. I am solace. I am chaos. I am human, and that is all I have ever wanted to be. I know who I am. Now, who are you?

Don’t ever be fooled by the media’s tricks. White people commit the most crimes in America especially murders. In fact, 84% of white people in America are killed by other Whites but this is something that you’ll never hear. Amerikkka loves to paint black people as criminals. This historically has always been there tactic. The reason being is if you can convince the world that Black people are the problem and we are a race of nothing but criminals then whatever you do to us will be looked at as justified. This is why when an innocent black person is killed by a racist cop the first thing the media does do is bring up their so called “criminal history”. White people today and historically have always committed the most violent crimes in Amerikkka and around the world yet have convinced everyone that Black people are who you need to be afraid of. You’ll never hear that white folks are more likely to be Rapists, child molesters, terrorists, and so much more. So the next time these house niggaz and devils bring up Black on Black crime make sure you humble them.

I’m from the project buildings, high stories
My stories from valence to glory
Dog-eat-dog world, gory
In the gutter, brother despise brother
Throwing threats at each other
Broken bottles and bar fights with box cutters
Alcoholics, narcotics, organized
Families sleep from a gas stove, burned alive
They bagging up drugs with plastic gloves
On his way to the top with his cash, he shrugs
Kidnappers, degenerate thieves and gamblers
Stealing, panhandlers, wrapping grams up
Rubber bands on they Grams, what?
Playing cards and they bored
Members of gangs, living by and dying by the sword
Block parties, fools stamp debit cards
Your hood ain’t no different from ours
We share the same dreams, same money
Same clothes and cars, instead we get the same jail bars
—  Nas
We’re all fools… all the time. It’s just we’re a different kind each day. We think, I’m not a fool today. I’ve learned my lesson. I was a fool yesterday but not this morning. Then tomorrow we find out that, yes, we were a fool today too. I think the only way we can grow and get on in this world is to accept the fact we’re not perfect and live accordingly.

The Signs as Lana Del Rey Lyrics

Aries: Baby I’m a four alarm fire, I’m what you desire. Like a siren in the night calling Nero Nero, baby yous a man on a wire, risking all you’ve got for the love of your life, you’re my hero hero…

Taurus: And my boyfriends in the band, he plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed, I’ve got feathers in my hair, I get high on hydroponic weed, and my jazz collections rare, I get down to beat poetry…

Gemini: Being a bad bitch on the side, it might not appeal to fools like you, we’ve been around when he gets high, it might not be something you would do…

Cancer: It’s better than I ever even knew, they say that the world is built for two, only worth living if somebody is loving you, an’ baby now you do…

Leo: Life is awesome, I confess, what I do, I do it best, you got nothing, I got tested, and I’m the best, yes…

Virgo: In the land of gods and monsters I was an angel, looking to get fucked hard, like a groupie incognito posing as a real singer, life imitates art…

Libra: Darling, darling, doesn’t have a problem, lying to herself cause her liquors top shelf, it’s alarming honestly how charming she can be, fooling everyone telling em she’s having fun…

Scorpio: Got mascara thick, I get emotional, you knew I was more than just a party girl, isn’t it hard to see what’s going on, I’m so far gone…

Sagittarius: Yo we used to go break in to the hotel, glimmer and we’d swim, running from the cops in our black bikini tops screaming get us while we’re hot get us while we’re hot, cmon take a shot!

Capricorn: But he headed out on Sunday, said he’d come on Monday, I stayed up waiting anticipating and pacing, but he was chasing paper, caught up in the game that was the last I heard…

Aquarius: Whitman is my daddy, Monaco’s my mother, diamonds are my bestest friend, heaven is my baby, suicides her father, opulence is the end…

Pisces: I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast, I am alone in the night, been trying hard not to get into trouble but I, I’ve got a war in my mind

“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.”

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”

“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

Dr Martin Luther King Jr was an amazing man with a desire to make a difference in this world. We all could learn so much from his passion and words. When you take away race, religion, sexuality, and gender identity we are all human. Differences should unite us, not tear us apart.

Be a light that helps illuminate the world to a brighter future.
