education is not a passage to adulthood but rather the meaning to life
“who art goes?”
“who are you,
who do you
relish the unconscious
lies that roll liquid
off of tongues and
drip to the floor,
wipe them up,
squeeze them into
your own untruths
and bitter metaphors
when i see you time stands still so does time and space
you better believe ill never forget that face
you made right before you left
no smile no frown just a lil smirk
boy do i ever feel like a jerk
i swear i didnt mean
to do those things to you
but oh my is it true?
i see your red car pull in the drive
i smile i grin
should i let you in?
or should i tell you to go
man what should i do
she came back to me out of the blue
i feel so happy
but so ashamed
am i rly the one to be blamed?
i sigh in relief
my world has been turned around
mixed up and i was sent space bound
gasping for air
i fall to the floor
as you open the door
you run over quickly
and take my hand
this is better than my plan
i open my eyes to see you there
to see your beautiful face
i cannot believe you came back to this place
ashamed i look at a wall
man my mind plays tricks on me
its over its done time to set you free
goodbye my love ill miss you farewell
fading away to dark
on to this next journey to embark
goodbye my love
a simple smile even a playful wink
makes me yearn to know your name
the way you walk the sound of your voice
who is to blame if i want to steal your name?
who is to say i can’t have you for me
its so easy you see this life is a game
care to take on another adventure of your life with me
it will take only a day of your time
every day for the rest of our lives we can live love and even lust for one another
join me its an adventure you will be a fool to pass
wont you take my hand as i lead us on our way
Stop Stressing. Start Living.
Stress affects each of us in different ways. You may have physical signs (such as tense or sore muscles), emotional signs (such as feeling helpless or depressed) or both.
Taking steps to manage stress has a double benefit. The actions you take will help you feel less stressed right away and more in control of your life, giving you a greater sense of well-being.
Here are four simple techniques for managing stress:
We all talk to ourselves; sometimes we talk out loud but usually we keep self-talk in our heads. Self-talk can be positive or negative.
Negative self-talk increases stress. Positive self-talk helps you calm down and control stress. With practice, you can learn to turn negative thoughts into positive ones.
- “I’ll do the best I can”
- “I know how to deal with this; I’ve done it before”
Emergency Stress Stopper
- Count to 10 before you speak.
- Take three to five deep breaths.
- Walk away from the stressful situation, and say you’ll handle it later.
- Go for a walk.
- Don’t be afraid to say “I’m sorry” if you make a mistake.
- Set your watch five to 10 minutes ahead to avoid the stress of being late.
- Break down big problems into smaller parts. For example, answer one letter or phone call per day, instead of dealing with everything at once.
- Drive in the slow lane or avoid busy roads to help you stay calm while driving.
- Smell a rose, hug a loved one or smile at your neighbor.
When stress makes you feel bad, do something that makes you feel good. Doing things you enjoy is a natural way to fight off stress.
Try to do at least one thing every day that you enjoy, even if you only do it for 15 minutes.
- Start an art project (oil paint, sketch, create a scrap book).
- Take up a hobby, new or old.
- Read a favorite book, short story, magazine or newspaper.
- Have coffee or a meal with friends.
- Play golf, tennis, or any other favorite sport of yours.
- Go for a bike ride.
- Listen to music during or after you practice relaxation.
- Take a nature walk — listen to the birds, smell the flowers, hug a tree (:
- Make a list of everything you still want to do in life, and do it!
- Watch an old movie on TV or rent a video.
- Play cards or board games with family and friends.
Relaxation is more than sitting in your favorite chair watching TV. To relieve stress, relaxation should calm the tension in your mind and body. Some good forms of relaxation are yoga, tai chi (a series of slow, graceful movements) and meditation.
Deep breathing is a form of relaxation you can learn and practice at home using the following steps. It’s a good skill to practice as you start or end your day.
- Sit in a comfortable position with your feet on the floor and your hands in your lap or lie down. Close your eyes.
- Picture yourself in a peaceful place. Perhaps you’re lying on the beach, walking in the mountains or floating in the clouds. Hold this scene in your mind.
- Inhale and exhale. Focus on breathing slowly and deeply.
- Continue to breathe slowly for five minutes or more.
- Try to take at least five to 10 minutes every day for deep breathing or another form of relaxation.
and don’t forget to LAUGH!!
Has mankind outgrown Earth?
A new report from the World Wildlife Fund says we’re gobbling up the planet’s resources at such an alarming rate that by 2030, even a second Earth wouldn’t be enough to sustain us
Which resources are we depleting?
Renewables like fish, water, timber, and food are being used up much faster than previously thought. According to experts, mankind’s “ecological footprint” is now over 50 percent higher than it was in 2008, meaning it takes 1.5 years for Earth to regenerate the natural resources we use up annually.
Why is our ecological footprint growing?
The world’s population, which according to the U.N. surpassed 7 billion last October, is getting too big, and the average individual is using more than he or she needs. “The excessive demands that we are putting on the planet will inevitably lead to acute water shortages, a chronic food crisis, and rising prices for energy, metals, and minerals,” says Robert Walker at the Huffington Post.

I remember the poems
you used to write, when
no one was looking.
And when the stars
were the dots on your eyes,
they filled the room with
Hollywood laser light shows.
The kind that send the ill
into foaming mouth fits,
and young children into
comas that last
until their friends,
Love is more about accepting flaws,
Than infatuating another’s perfection,
Vomiting the soul upon canvas,
Anxiously pacing awaiting approval.
