All Lives Matter

S7300940 (800x600)

With everything that has happened in our country, one would think there would be some unification. Instead, there seems to be more division than ever. The level of violence, intolerance, and hatred makes me both sick to my stomach with grief and so very angry. We are Americans, we should start acting like what a true American should be, instead of what we’ve become. This statement is about our country as a whole, I do realize there are many individuals that show the level of love, compassion, integrity, and honor that many expect, but not nearly as many demonstrate.

Some preach things like, “Black lives matter” or “Gay lives matter.” You know what? They most certainly DO matter. The things that people do to one another simply because they don’t like one’s color, religion, political views, sexual orientation, and so on is sickening. It is downright awful that people assault, rape, vandalize, and more in the name of “their people”. We are in a country where we are supposed to be free to be who we are, but how free are we really if we have to fear for our lives for being true to ourselves? We don’t have to like everyone, but we should at least be respectful and decent to one another. It is possible to co-exist.

Why do we feel the need, as the human race, to tear one another down? Why, since the beginning of time, have we felt the need to control, dominate, and do whatever it takes to get what we want, no matter who we hurt? Why do we pick a race of people and say they’re either inferior or superior? Why do we attack others for believing in something other than what we do? Why? And why do we have to continue to divide, among our own citizens and throughout the world?

I am one that will never pick one group and think they’re better or worse than another. I will not put them down or attack them. I will not put another down for having different views or faith. I am human and I am not perfect, but I will do my best to love everyone, regardless of color, faith, political views, etc. I don’t care if you’re gay, straight, bi-sexual, transgender, etc. What matters to me is how you treat me, treat those I love, those around you. If you show me respect, I will do the same for you. There are many out there who feel the same way that I do and to you, I tip my hat. Let us stand together and show everyone that love’s power is infinite and our voices can be heard. Let us continue to show love in the face of adversity, compassion in places where it seems to have vanished, and kindness to even those who hard to be nice to.

Let us show the world that ALL lives matter, that the senseless violence needs to stop. Let us show the world that we don’t need to hurt those who are different from us. You can be who you are and be accepted, loved. I get why some say things like, “Police lives matter.” They’re simply standing up for a group of people that have been wronged. I loathe all senseless violence. I respect the views people have and do stand on the side of making things right. It’s just that for me, I think separating people into groups is causing more division, instead of banding us together. So, I will continue to say,”ALL LIVES MATTER!” Let love be the force that is heard today, showing others that we do matter and that coming together is what we need to do, not drift further apart.

The Art Within Us All

wallony1oy

His skills with paint are practically legendary

Hours spent in the studio whenever inspiration strikes

Passion flows from his fingertips into each brushstroke

What a gift his hands have, one that a heavy heart carries

 

Can you hear that almost angelic sound?

The music coming from Lady 88’s voice can silence any crowd

Words that only her mind understands flow from the keyboard

As her message reaches out its hand, our souls are found

 

Months have been spent writing, editing, and rewriting

Research and so much raw emotion bleeds through the pages

Set in fiction, but truth is hidden just beneath it all

A secret war within is one he is daily fighting

 

The $50 meal you’re eating smells of love & creativity

Take a picture and tweet about this work of delicious beauty

Did you take any notice to how much went into it?

Such hard work shouldn’t be met with passivity

 

Walking through the hand made arches & decorative halls

You gaze in wonder at the craftsmanship in every square inch

Is this it, the home you’ll choose to raise your family?

The one where your family’s story will adorn the walls

 

Art comes in many forms, even in ways others do not see

From designing cars and clothes & even writing computer programs

It’s all around us, in all we do in our everyday lives

I pay tribute to the artist within each of us, the ones we choose to be

 

Let us not ignore the beauty that surrounds us every single day

There’s so much wonder to create, share, & behold

If we but open our eyes to the world around us

May we let the art in our souls find all willing to look our way

 

We Are One

It’s been a rough day

Nothing has gone right

I want to make the stress go away

Forget today and let’s call it a night

 

You walk through the door

With that adorable half smile on your face

Oh how you make my heart soar

Don’t you know you’re my happy place?

 

It’s easy for you to tell it’s been a rough one for me

But you don’t run from my side

Instead you remain calm and allow my emotions to run free

Promising to be there even when it’s a bumpy ride

 

You take me in your arms and kiss my lips

Worries and cares melt away like snow in the sun

I feel peace flow from my toes all the way through to my fingertips

No longer is it just me or you, now we are one

Brangien Illuminated

I am Brangien [Brangaine] of Weisefort, Ireland, lady-in-waiting to my cousin Isolde, who became promised to King Marc of Cornwall. His nephew Tristan escorted us to England by ship. But Tristan and Isolde fell in love at sea. As ye may know, or will find out, they cite the philter they drank as the cause, over which I was supposed to keep vigil. I would like to share my perspective of how I have created good in the world through my herbs and observations. There is much to tell, including how I have adopted this odd language. In good time. My life is in God’s hands. –Inspired by the modern French translations of the Tristan and Isolde texts
