I want to know there is someone out there
Sometimes I lay in bed every night weeping for the unknown
Because the only one who loves me— human or not— is someone I cannot see or touch
And no matter how much I pray to Him I feel as if He never answers
Maybe His line is busy, too many people call Him at once
I wish He would pick up the phone
This someone cannot be contained in a single snow globe
Because He is infinite, He lives in everything
And He belongs to no one
He is everyone's Father
He is more than the Sun because He created the Sun…
Among all the Stars, Planets and Moons
Even the non-humans
Though I will perish in twenty-five years I am not afraid
Because I know one thing
I am the kind of boy you will find wrapped up in a sheet in a cold hotel room with an empty bottle of pills in the palm of his hand
Like those screen stars you read about in the scandal sheets
I feel like Marilyn Monroe sometimes, only loved for the outer shell, yet no one will know

Silent battles….this isn't a war being fought with guns….no, just millions of people and one voice.
It's been long month and half, many weeks of fighting and fasting.
After 34 days of non-stop battle, Rolf need to desperately rest now… water dominates the mind and dust rides my tongue, preventing me from speaking in strong voice, nothing but whispers. Though Rolf is sick and tired, and my body has become a cage….Rolf WILL come back stronger. Oh yes, the battle is never over for us immigrants. And we believe strongly in a new tomorrow, and that NOW is the time for change. We may be tired, and we are going home to rest for the remainder of December….but come 2014, we will come back stronger and continue to fight this thing through to the end.
You think we're done? No, sir, think again. We are never done fighting. We want rights, and we want them N

((My voice has more strength today so I was able to sing as Rolf this time. Thanks Gabbie for the advice…I drank some tea and was able to get the raspiness out of my voice. Good news. I went to the doctor for a weigh in. I gained 4 pounds.
I'm still a skeleton but at least I'm gaining weight. And I'm feeling a bit better, and I'm able to speak more clearly instead of in whispers.))
