Somewhere I belongsomewhere I belong,
somewhere I feel strong,
somewhere, where interruptions are far, far away and never for too long,
somewhere I can call home,
somewhere I can be alone,
somewhere like our very own home.
Arrogance hurts others when taken too farTo me, something called Arrogance/ being self absorbed is only bad when it infests individuals to the extent that it effects/plays a big part on their attitude and causes the individuals to attack others verbally and/or physically sometimes without little to no remorse.
Dreams and Hope to me can beDreams can come true,
Hope (too much of it and/or false) is like a blade that cuts and hurts you
Abuse can only be handled for so longIt's wrong to always abuse and use the ones you love, I can see how a push can eventually come to a bloody big fat SHOVE.
Its okay to dislike thingsIts stupid how people go looking for something they absolutely dislike (things like different arts, sports, TV shows) simply to whinge, gossip and bitch about it after. for example If you don't like football, Simple! Don't watch it on DVD /look it up on the computer because your setting yourself up for disaster and a session of bitching, whining and abusing others because you couldn't be bothered keeping away from things you dislike in life!

Taking photos of oneselfViolence, bullying & abuse in the world and cyberspace is what should always be tackled and sorted out instead of having a go at people for taking photos and/or selfies of themselves because having a go at others you are just adding on to the fighting, picking, inflicting pain on and abuse towards others in this world and cyberspace. Simply taking a photo of oneself is not bullying and is much less harmful compared to the previous things I mentioned (Violence, Bullying, Abuse, inflicting pain on others)
helping othersIs ones ability to help others a gift, damaging or maybe a curse? well to me it can be all of them. To help a mother can be hard yet rewarding though to be abused especially with immense attitude by her teenage daughter for helping her mother clean the daughters dishes gathered out of her bedroom is indeed at times both damaging and a curse.
Can Christians Like Dragons?HEADS UP!!! The Biblical half of this version of the article is relatively outdated as of 02/11/2016, so please follow the below link to read the revised and expanded edition! Thank you!!!
In other words, can a Christian morally have a love for dragons? The logic behind the question is that dragons by Biblical standards seem to be evil creatures. Therefore it should be incompatible to follow Jesus Christ and love dragons at the same time, right? This is what I've been accused of many times, being a firm holder to Truth yet having a soft spot for dragons. I would like to answer in detail these accusations, thus the reason for this article.
Let us look at dragons from every angle, starting with what The Sacred Scriptures say. In The Holy Bible the Hebrew word used for dragon(s) is 'tanniyn' and shows up 29 times in The Old Testament. But, do note t
The Bible Says God Doesn't Exist (Really!)
Many Christians wonder how anyone could doubt the existence of God, but it turns out it's right in the bible. If you read between the lines, it tells you there's no God
1) The bible claims that God sacrificed Jesus for our sins. (John 3:16, Romans 3:25, Ephesians 5:2, Hebrews 9:26) (This is ignoring Deuteronomy 24:16 and Ezekiel 18:20, which state that everyone is to be responsible for their own transgressions without anyone else dying for their sins, thus undermining the primary basis of Christianity.)
2) Since Jesus is God (2 Peter 1:1, John 10:30-33, and other verses), premise 1 means that God sacrificed himself.
3) A sacrifice involves the destruction of the entire being, including the spirit. This seems intuitively obvious especially for a self-sacrifice, since it's not much of a sacrifice if the martyr is guaranteed an eternity in heaven.
Brushing Up Against HistoryNovember 1963
I'm eight years old and sitting in class (I strangely recall that my seat was in the middle of second row, on the side away from the window), when the principal comes in to tell us that the president has been shot.
I do not know
what it means, but I know
that it scares me.
My mother meets Senator Robert F. Kennedy while he is campaigning in San Francisco and gets his autograph. I live with my father in a small town in Michigan, where every year leading up to Memorial Day, I sell paper poppies for the VFW.
blood of soldiers on the field
war has come home
I watch the news and see the body count, arranged like a scorecard. The numbers say we are winning, but one of those numbers is from our town, the only casualty that week. I don't know him, but I see his picture on the cover of Life Magazine.
I turn 17 the next month
and try to join the Marine Corp
my father will not sign

ArtWhy does art need to be perfect?
Why throw rules on how to become a good artist onto us?
Why give us direction on how to do it right?
Why send us to the greatest artists for learning?
Why do we need the best learning to become good artists?
Cant we choose what we want to create, in the way we want to create it?
Our flaws is not a negative barrier.
Our flaws can create new and exiting things.
With our flaws we can create something no one else has created.
Only going for what is and looks natural is one of hundreds of paths.
And its not the only "right" one.
You have the choice to go all the paths.
There shouldnt be just a few to choose from, you make up your own.
Art isnt restricted and neither is your imagination.
Art doesnt need to be perfect to be amazing.
Haiku Theory Part 1 -2009-A Lot of Words About A Little Poem
An Introduction to Haiku Structures
A haiku poem cannot be defined according to the number of syllables and lines it contains (nor by the number of syllables in each line). Although I do not wish to go into the reasons why at this point (I will save that for a later discussion) the form of modern English haiku, as Haruo Shirane writes, is a short poem, usually written in one to three lines. (in Gilbert, 2009) At this point our definition sounds very vague. If the number of syllables and lines do not define a haiku poem, then what does? And if a haiku poem is simply a short one, two or three-line poem then what separates it from other forms of Western short-verse or, in the case of one-line haiku, a sentence?
Patricia Donegan writes, in agreement with the Western haiku community at large, that syllable counting... is not the important thing for haiku in English. Haiku is an experience, not an act of co
Christianity and HomosexualitySo a lot of times, the reason people are against homosexuality (or bisexuality, etc), it has to do with religious beliefs, namely the Abrahamic trio (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), and, most vocally in the West, Christianity.
I would like to do some exploration of that.
First, let’s talk about what is said in the Old Testament.
A student essay I’ve read revealed that a verse in Levitcus, one most often cited, was mistransliterated to mean to be against homosexuality, when it was originally against sleeping with your partner for reasons other than sex;
The National Gay Pentecostal Alliance (NGPA) has analyzed the Leviticus verse in great detail to produce a word-for-word translation of the original Hebrew. In English, with minimal punctuation added, they rendered it as: “And with a male thou shalt not lie down in beds of a woman; it is an abomi
The Background Of Evangelion
I have spent a fair amount of time trying to understand the use of the "Sephirothic Sytem" and I have finally come to terms of it's use and origins.
There isn't a lot of information about it on the internet so this is an exceptional chance for you to know what it is (you never know..... I might come in handy one day)
The Sephirothic Sytem is part of the Jewish culture and religion but it has also links into Christianity and some of you might know that, Christianity is a descendant branch from Jewish religion (Jesus himself was Jewish).
The Sephirothic Sytrem is part of the "Kabbalah" and is in this case a diagram representing 10 circles, each containing a virtue of God (Kindness, Understanding, Loving, Honesty Bravery etc....) Each circle represents a "Sephiroth" (thus it's name "Sephirotic System"), a Planet and a Colour. I will explain later what a "Sephiroth" is. Each circle or Sephiroth is linked to 2 pathways called "Channels". The Circles are set in such a w
Never Marry an ArtistNever Marry An Artist
Don't marry an artist. Ever.
If your heart is not one for adventure, if your mind is confined to the restrictions of reality_Then please, I beg of you, do not marry an artist.
Your mind will be doused in vibrant liquids, your eyes will be opened to new things. You'll see your life in technicolor. Shades of gray will no longer restrain you, for your will shall be guided by that of an artist. Kiss normality away, because once you marry an artist, you will become an artist one way or another.
Their ways will rub off onto you, their adventure will fill your soul, and you will never be the same again.
Never Marry a Writer.
Because they're all the same. They bear wisdom from long ago, yet they preserve it in this age.
They'll take their life and yours, and put it in a book,
Your life will no longer be your own, but the life of all those who look.
Kiss privacy away, because secrets are no longer secrets.
They're stories you see, ammo if you may. The weapons are the words
The Tale of Love: A Super Paper AnalysisAhem! Today I'll tell you the story of the lost book of prophecies.
It is a tale of love...
Chapter 1: An Introduction
In the English language, "love" can mean a lot of things. "I love chocolate!" "I love you, mommy." "I I think I'm in love with you."
Love is hard to define and is often downright illogical. What love really means to us can run the gamut from claiming to love a movie, to claiming to love the child you have raised. And moreover, love doesn't even always have to be a good thing. While love is perhaps the most beautiful thing in human experience, it can also be extremely dangerous, and when directed at certain things, quite unhealthy.
Super Paper Mario claims to be a tale of love. But it's just a game, right? What could a game teach us about love? Well, nothing in itself, really. No game, book, or movie can teach a person how to love. What these stories can do, however, is show us a reflection, however refracted, of ourselves and the people around
