"We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people."
-Martin Luther King

Why am i surrounded by people that are in a constant state of denial about most things that are happening in the world and happening in the minds and hearts of those around them and around the world. They only see through their own lens and cannot seem to feel what others feel and see through others' eyes.

This new year is calling for me to not back down from what i believe. Most people in my life say i am too extreme but i believe i am truly passionate and it is the best thing about me. i have been told most of my growing up that there is something wrong with the way i look at the world and the way that i look at people and i used to believe that. I know now that i am just different... in a good way. There is not many people like me.. i think i have only met one so far, but they have past on to the great unknown( i miss you).......

I love deeply and am jealous of the ones i love.... because i have shared my heart with them and have given pieces of myself to them that i can never get back...
i cherish my dear ones, and i cherish the oppressed, overlooked and misunderstood. I care for those who have not received the love they deserved and needed.

  1. i just wrote you. and its funny that i hadn't read this before i did.
    i've always believed that the poor and oppressed are the most shocking reflection of humanity. we should be drawn to see ourselves in them... to feel their pain and to recognize it in ourselves... simple-minded people don't care to notice this. and it makes a lot of things easier for them... but they are missing so much that is essential.

    i don't think you see the world incorrectly, i never have. i just think that you carry a massive amount of pain yourself and it affects the way that you perceive love and trust. i hope you find healing, but i hope that passionate part of you never changes.
