When I’m sad or angry or lost or confused
I remember that my mom loves the pitter patter sound of rain on the roof tops
Not that I like it or anything
But when I remember she likes it
It comforts me
From torched skyscrapers, men grew wings.
I often think about this quote - I would say it is my favourite. Thanks for giving me this quote when I ran for SuperCouncil President!
Perseverate the ideologies of the heart and mind,
We paint the ties that bind.
Hold tomorrow’s poison-whispers in the palm of my hand,
Waiting for the stars that will not align.
Reach out and grab gold dust from the sky,
The night falls.
Black smoke chains,
And the gentle sound of the earth as I press my ear against the sands of time.
With your hand in mine,
Sever the heart or mind.
Although I feel as I MUST be open to all human rights issues, feeling that there should be an equalness and equity between every human being, the reality is that there ARE issues that I am uncomfortable with. One issue being anything that associates with LGBTTIQQ2S (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Transgendered, Intersexual, Queer, Questioning, 2-Spirited).
I think the main reason I feel uncomfortable with this is because of the environment I was exposed to when I was younger, who also thought of anyone who associates with LGBTTIQQ2S do not deserve the rights that other “normal” humans do. I used to believe that is how the social construct should be, but because of the past few years, I have reformed my idea on this. I also try to stop myself from saying stupid remarks like, “that’s so gay”, when i’m trying to say “that’s so stupid” because IT IS a form of discrimination, and may offend someone. But the thing is, my past thoughts still intefere with what I want to think right now, and what I am thinking right now, but ultimately, I’m trying to build an openness to this, so that I can become more comfortable with this issue. yay ;]
