WILL YOU MARRY ME?

Let me tell you a tale, a tale of when boy meets girl, when the world was at his back, when nothing was right, when the first time he saw her, he fell for her, he fell so hard, he broke his nose, it broke his ego, or whatever that remained of him, when boy meets girl, his neurons are fired, his sleep is disturbed, he is out of sync, lovingly screwed, he knew that when boy meets girl, he was in love, and for the first time ever, he felt a connection, a powerful drive, and after 10 fucking years of dating, he found that there was no way he was ever going to live this mad life without her, he needed her, and she needed him, though she’s miles away, in a different country, yearning to come back, he feels it now, the pain, the distance, the need to hold her hands, to look into her eyes and say: Will you fucking marry me?

NAMES

Names, that’s the sum of hatred in one word, names long, big, great, cursed or small, it doesn’t matter how well you’ve given the name, it doesn’t make a difference how much thought you’ve given to it and the intention into saying the words, one syallable, one name at a time, that’s how the world is ruined, how nights become sleepless and the mind replays the moment when lips say names, words, thoughts of hatred come to life, hitting home, we’d have existed just fine without names, no need to identify ourselves from the other, if we could be one big common entity that thrives on love it’d be great, but names were never meant for illusions, names were meant for bigger and nastier things, the harbringer of violence, genocide and war, names, names, names, that’s the sum of hatred, disgust and turmoil in a single fucking word.

TOXIC

Gas masks will be the new black, one for the king, one for the common man, one for the kid, gas masks, hang them on your wall, clip them to your pants, hang it like a garland of skulls around your neck, gas masks, because the air will be filled with sin, and we need to breathe, we need to take it all in, because this rack of lungs will die if we don’t, we need to filter, to cleanse the sin from the bleak, you see the air was fresh and wonderful, we just had to posion it and fill it with our greed, gas masks will be the thing, one for the king, one for the common man, one for the kid, one in our casket, just so we can rest in peace…

NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW

The world doesn’t need more selfies, the need to proclaim, to show the world, hey look, look at the shit I’ve done, calling out on people publicly when you have no idea of the actual story, the world doesn’t need your I-just-gave-birth photos, look at my child all covered in blood and placenta, oh for fuck’s sake, look around us, the world has lost its fucking mind, we not dealing with the information around us in a logical way, we crunching, we stealing, turning into conniving hypocrites who say more than we do, or do things for the sake of gaining fame and publicity, at the end of the day, we need our space, we need a safe space to clear our heads, to refresh our minds, the world doesn’t need to know what goes in in every second of our lives, the world doesn’t need to know, you don’t need to know…

MAKE PEACE

Before you go, give me what you owe, before you you go, there are those who wait to be forgived or slain, before you go, the world needs to know, that you are human in every way, before you go, ears, eyes and hearts need to be told, of your legends and mistakes, before you go, they might hate or love you more, before you go, the world will be the same, before you go, remind the night to return, before you go, remind day of its duty, before you go, caution your gods, before you, I, we go, let us make peace with our demons…

EVOLUTION

They said we came from monkeys, some argue otherwise, we learned to be social, forged weapons, took it upon ourselves to survive, we evolved, we became greedy, filled with seven millenia of sin, they said we evolved to kill, grew complex brains and longer appendages to craft and mine and plunder, when we lost our thunder we craved for more, we evolved to be more, more than ever, more than now, the future was never about passing good to the next generation, it was about making the best of us, making sure that we would go down into the next world, stronger, smarter, much more ruthless than before, we evolved they said, we evolved in almost every aspect, and yet evolution puts kindness and empathy away, stored in some dormant part of the DNA, we losing touch, we losing the need to talk, to communicate, to say nice words, we losing ourselves and yet we pride ourselves with our genocidal achievements, there is nothing to be proud of when you lack empathy and warmth, we were made to love and survive, but not at the cost of killing, hating or culling the rest of the human race.

THE FACE OF RACE

Race is another face, beyond the skin, the hate and the rage, race is another face, a facade of the human race, because we kill, we maim, we violate the very laws of our lives just to ensure that race, skin and color is our face, we are so much more, this face is contorted, always frowning, never smiling, lines of divide and eyes that only see the surface, if only we could put this pathetic struggle of race behind us, and maybe, we wouldn’t have to face the reality of race ever again…

YOU LIVE MORE THAN ONCE

You live more than once, you live more than once, just as this statement, that is going be to repeated inside your head, you live more than once, you never live only once, and if you live only once, then you have never lived life at all, so fuck the YOLO statement and live more than once, you get to live more than once, more than ever, you need to live life to its end, take it all in, the good, the bad, the mad, you were given a life to live more than once, you live more than once and if possible you’d live forever…

HOW WAS YOUR DAY?

All you have to do is reach out and ask, hey, how was your day, have you eaten, what’s going on, you can talk to me and that’s all it takes to make your day a little better, we sometimes forget that we are creatures with emotions who need that touch or voice to lift our spirits up, we’re social, we thrive in communities, independent as we are, we need love, care and encouragement, if not all the time, we could all use a little of each other.

YOU ARE ALL I NEED

I don’t need anything from you, the fucking world is still backwards, when you love a woman, you love her for who she is, not for her wealth, not for the amount of dowry she carries with her over to your house, not for how she is going to pleasure with gifts and sex, I want you, not the gossiping poisonous mouths of your relatives, the vicious stares of strangers, I don’t need a stage and priest to fucking proclaim to the world that you are my wife, I don’t need anything from you, come as you are, come as you be, take my hand and let us walk down this mad life together, I don’t need anything from you my dear, in this fucking world, you are all I need…
