My Grandmother Today
Time flies, Dreams die.
Memories fade away As
photographs turning grey Hush
A wandering mind.
A far off future
So far away. Everyday
Blue eyes, Tired eyes.
Crawling that much closer To
closing infinitely You
Smile while you can.
Kisses on the cheek
All the ones you gave. Comfortable

"It's very bright during the day, with all the ice and snow. The people are nice. The food is interesting," Zuko answered.
"What, you don't like the blubbered seal jerky? It's very valuable around here, you know," she said, putting her hands on her hips and feigning offense.
"I didn't mean that," Zuko said, looking away.
Katara frowned at his tone and grabbed his arm to stop him from moving forward.
"Hey, what's wrong?" Katara asked.
"I'm sorry," he said, looking at her guiltily.
"Zuko, it's okay. Blubbered seal jerky is an acquired taste," Katara told him, squeezing his arm.
"No, I'm sorry for what the Fire Nation did to this place," he said gravely. "I'm sorry that we destroyed your defenses. I'm sorry that we took away your families. I'm sorry that you all have so little and that giving me seal jerky was a sacrifice for your family," he said, l

In your chest but you’re
Afraid to wear it on your sleeves
For everyone to see. No need
To worry – I’ve seen scarred arms,
I’ve known people who let their
Demons take over their hearts.
Your story is just as valid as
Mine; even if it’s just a fairytale.

No matter how many times the world
says to “be yourself”
it will never accept you
when you are.
You’re on your own. Always.
Admit to yourself that you lie.
You don’t have to make it
a point of conversation with others
because most will not understand
nor love you regardless,
even though they do it too,
but admitting it to yourself
opens the door for growth and that
is very important.
There will be a boy who you find
sitting next to you in a library one day
and he’ll eventually ask you to do something.
The road to hell may be paved with good intentions
it’s better to do the wrong thing
than to do the right thing with your heart
not in the right place.
Learn to laugh more.
Life is much more bearable.
Don’t blame society for all your problems.
Don’t blame yourself for all your problems.
Don’t apologize for everything.
This is neither attractive nor healthy;
it makes you

Tread harshly on my nightmares
Make all my fears disappear
Hold me close, my rainstopper
So I won't be alone...anymore
A night like tonight-
It'll be alright
Tears seem to fly-
Within glistening light
Relieve thy tired heart
Put thy pain in my arms
Allow those woes to depart
The strong are the weak ones / Once the damage is finally done
Crack and shatter my soul / My protected tears are no more
Don't let my sympathy be wasted / My morals won't become faded
I'm leaving my heart open / Don't let yourself worsen
I will always care / I will always be here
This is what I will always be / The vanquisher of your agony
A day like today
You'll be okay
Bathe in this sunshine
Doubts will ignite
Recover thy power

#YesAllWomen who use this hashtag hate menIn short, the #YesAllWomen hashtag uses the recent shooting as evidence that ALL women are victims of men. Women who tweet this are essentially taking attention away from the actual victims of the tragedy and making it all about themselves.

The following quotes are excerpts from the top comment on ELLIOT RODGER: MORE THAN A MADMAN by Laci Green. This comment, which received thousands of upvotes, advocates the #YesAllWomen hashtag.
This is NOT an isolated incident. Women are being raped, abused, killed, and are simply being made uncomfortable every single day by men.
Yes, you read that right. This is not an isolated incident because being murdered and being “made uncomfortable” are pretty much the same thing.
A confessionA confession4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In my wildest dreams, you are always play the hero. In my darkest hour of night, you rescue me, you save my life.
The monsters in my dreams cannot defeat you,
the fears within my mind will not stand strong.
I always used to wonder what to do,
I've never had to worry since you came along.
You're nothing short of my everything.
I sometimes think back to 'before',
when I had nobody to care for.
Then I return here with more,
A friend, I love and adore.
I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
I never believed I could be new,
I thought I could survive on my own.
That was all before I met you,
and you took me outside my comfort zone.
To be your friend was all I ever wanted. To be your lover was all I ever dreamed.
You're the most amazing person I know,
You're the best friend I ever had.
You made me happy, helped me grow,
You picked me up when I was sad.
If you love me only in my dreams, let me be asleep forever.

Juli asked her grandmother, a usually calm woman, who was now running around the room frantically.
She said sweetly, throwing books off a shelf.
"What are you doing?"
Her grandmother smiled sweetly at her. Juli was only staying with her for the week during her winter break and since she arrived everything had been calm (re. Boring)
"Oh, an old friend of mine is coming over. She's from Romania and travels a lot-"
"Why are you tearing apart the house?"
Her grandmother stared at her and told her something that she never in her life thought she would hear her grandmother say.
"Gypsies don't particularly like order much, dear."
Juli raised an eyebrow.
"Gypsy? So she traveled around a lot and what? Did belly dancing or something while someone else stole wallets?"
Her grandmother chuckled.
"She was a fortune teller. Although sometimes I think that she can do more than just tell the future. Maybe, just maybe she could change it."
Her grandmother gave a dreamy sigh, th

I grew up in pursuit of these,

I miss the days when I believed
all I needed was a cape to save the world.
I knew you weren't the one
because somehow I still wanted a hero,
somehow I still believed they existed:
one person who could rescue the city
all in a day's work.
I knew you had the framework
but not the heart,
a branchless tree
with no roots.
sometimes I stand on the edge,
wishing I could fly
but knowing I never will.
I think it's enough to pretend
I'll learn how one day.

First Page: The chase had begun. The area went dead silent. My heart was planning to leap out of my chest as I ran in the darkness with only a flashlight to illuminate my way. A drop of cold sweat glides down my face. I already mistake one of the trees to be Him until I flash my light on them. My paranoia rose each second, but I am still running as fast as I can, not daring to look behind me.
Second Page: My hair began to tense and my skin crawled. The moon had disappeared, being overlapped by the darkest clouds I have ever seen. I bit my lip, hoping in vain that it would control my rising panic. It did very little. My lungs are on fire. My mind is playing tricks on me. Which way is North again? I think that way is East. But wait, where is-... I was lost. I could not find the way out of this forest anymore. I'm trapped here, and I am in his territory now. But only until I find every page.... Fine. So be it.

She sits in deepest darkness,
a blackhole of emotional might.
Ever taking in the greatest
portion of my sacred light.
All around are pulled within
her dark horizon of pain and sin.
No sacrifice too great for thee,
no where to run, escape, or flee.
No rays of kindness escape her pull,
I spend my warmth (more so the fool!).
Now past the point of no return,
A quarkish fate is what I've earned.
A never ending appetite,
dispels my finite inner light.
Falling forever my soul is lost
Black Stars toll a hefty cost.
