One of these days I will stop spending so much money buying books of poetry. But today is not that day.

As you all might recall from earlier on in the day, I received this beautiful journal in the post from queenfoisback and my aim was to write into the first page, a poem or quote that means a lot to me so that I’d be inspired each time I open it.

Of course, there’s no one I could think of who’s touched my heart more than navk, so inside the cover (well, the first page really) I’ve written in a reminder from his beautiful self:

When the world materializes 
in your eyes when you wake, 
I want you to do me a favour 
and forget everything 
that happened between 
you and yourself last night. 
Just carry on, don’t think about it.
Let it go, and live another day.

This is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for honouring me with the first page in such an elegant journal.

"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin

I did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge today, and there’s something I would like to address. I honestly do not condone wasting clean water by any means, but for those people turning on their ‘holier-than-thou’ attitude towards those who are raising awareness and having fun at the same time, there are a couple other things you could spend your time voicing your disgust against. If you want to talk about waste, here is some food for thought: 

  1. Clean water is used to clean major streets, usually at night, in most Western cities. Nobody makes donations to a worthy cause as a result.
  2. Clean water is used to water trees, plants, and gardens on private properties, as well as city properties.
  3. People, like yourself, may have, at some point in their lives, wasted food in some form. That food could have gone to a hungry person somewhere in the world, but you just threw that away. 
  4. THE FOOD AND GROCERY INDUSTRY THROWS NON-EXPIRED FOOD STUFFS AWAY EVERY SINGLE NIGHT AND THEY TAKE ISSUE WITH GIVING TO HOMELESS SHELTERS OR THE POOR BECAUSE A) THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE LIABLE FOR ILLNESSES/DAMAGES CAUSED BY DONATING UNWANTED FOOD B) IT’S CHEAPER FOR THEM TO THROW THE FOOD AWAY.

These are just a few small examples. So before you really start going on about how much water is being wasted in this campaign, step back and think about how much we waste EVERYTHING in the west in general.

The lights
are always on
in your eyes.
I hope no one
ever has the
audacity
to turn them off.

It is often forgotten 
that despite our 
outward appearances, 
the colour which stains 
the insides of each of 
our vessels are one 
and the same.
