Today I can’t help but blog about a few feelings that I have about the recent school shooting in Connecticut. This was an Elementary School. The youngest of the next generation. My heart is broken from the loss of those children and teachers that were killed today. Human life is valuable. Who knows if one of those kids who lost there life today, would be the very same person to find the cure for cancer, aids, or any other disease when they grew up. Who knows what bright futures these children had? Who knows what will come of this school shooting and what school will be like in the future. However I hope that this tragedy will all remind us of how valuable human life is and not just human life, but life in general. Life, truly is the most important thing to me and it saddens me to see such horrible events play out during my lifetime. Though I know that this is only the beginning of something huge, I do not know what is in store for our Country/World in the future. Let us please remember the beauty in life and the opportunities that we all have and share as being brothers and sisters of the Human race. Let us rise up in each catastrophe and tragedy that we see to be a little smarter, a little more human, a little more compassionate with our race. Indeed we have many problems in our world where we don’t have the answers yet to solve them. I strongly feel that It is our duty as apart of the human race to preserve ourselves, to take care of one another, and to love each and everyone. Today I challenge each and everyone of you reading my blog to do a kind act for someone. Wither its a stranger, a family member, a co-worker, or child, do something that will help them. I strongly believe that each one of us has some light and some love to give. Let us not be stingy with this gift. Being someone who is not religious or belongs to a certain church, I still can see the value and the advantages that the human race has for having the ability to love and the ability to share that love with others. My heart goes out to everyone today. I hope we all have a bright and beautiful day tomorrow.
This poem was inspired by an idea of Cameron's from his Notes from a broken man blog. He brought up the idea of humanity as a religion. The words just poured from me in response. Thanks, Cameron!!
If humanity was a religion
Would you claim to be an atheist?
Or possibly a touch more benign
And call yourself agnostic?
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean;
if a few drops of the ocean are dirty,
the ocean does not become dirty.
- Mahatma Gandhi -
I believe that if you are waiting for some godly gift, some kingdom that you will be lifted up into at the last days, then you are wasting your time, energy, and life. Here we have all the beauty, brains, and technology to make our lives a “Garden of Eden” on earth. Yet we sit on our sofa’s and lazy boys flipping through channels on our televisions trying to find the next sitcom instead of working towards a better way of life.Why can’t more people understand that life is the most beautiful gift we will ever receive? and that wasting it, is surely a sin. Since when did life become so unimportant?
I look at the community that I currently live in and feel a deep sadness for these people. They are so indoctrinated that any other way of life is asinine to them.
They shy away from any other culture and way of life, because they believe the illusion that is played out before them.
My brothers, sisters, family members, and the mass public are being controlled with out the knowledge of it, and it sickens me. They look down upon me like I am some rat in their home. For my case, I imagine that I’m a really huge rat that they can’t seem to get rid of.I guess they have rodent problems.
But why they look down upon me, I don’t know. Could be that because I live my life where every day has meaning and they are jealous of my freedoms. I admit that I am blessed to have the freedoms that I do have, that I know of. However my own ignorance also holds me back from a life that has so much more to it. This is why human progression is important. So that we as a human race can grow, change, and make a place for ourselves among the universes.
I don’t believe that man has more power or intelligence then another man, or women for that matter. We are all equal. However intelligence and power is earned and gained. Through hard work, reading, studying, and culture. In this way a man can be more intelligent then another. I see many men in the world using this to overpower their weak minded brethren. After all we are all here trying to survive. I believe that it is our duty to continue the progression of the race by learning all that we can. This progression, some people don’t believe in because they are to busy with believing in half-truths, and falsifications. I apologize if my words are disturbing, though I feel harsh times deserves harsh words.
Scientific studies have shown many amazing finds and truths about our world and where we have come to be. Evolution is as real as you and I. It is also through art and human expression that we can grow by learning about oneself, while we become a progressive people always trying to be more free, to be more human, to live the greatest life we can.
As a rodent I will continue my hunt for more intelligence, for more understanding, for more love for my race (the human race). One day I hope that those people who are left in the dark will one day come to the real light and join me in being a rodent to those who live in ignorance.

I am feeling like I need to be truthful today. I need to be writing and fighting. Though i wont. I want to be positive. This is something that I am trying to do with my life. I need to be more positive. I want to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July. Those of you who are not in the US. I hope you all will have a drink to your own independence and freedoms that you have. One day I hope we will not celebrate countries independence days, but be one with everyone celebrating the worlds independence.
Happy Independence Day everyone.
So I am being really lazy today and not posting a poem. Which is sad to say the least. However I saw this quote and thought that the message is exactly what I want to say today. Hope all of you are having a great day and a great year.
Speaking of years, does any one else feel like 2012 is a fantastic year to be alive?
I dont care how sexy you might think you are, dont do this! I was astonished by how awful this song is. Then to try and make up for the song they try to put women in bikini’s so that maybe you wont notice the fucking awful music/lyrics….There is a point where every man no longer cares how hot you are.
Wait wait wait… So I feel like I didn’t explain myself. We live in a country where it is ok to be dumb, stupid, ignorant, and most of all beautiful. Now why do women feel like it is a must to be stupid in order to attract a certain guy they like….or better yet Why is it that they act that way in certain settings, well because that is what society has told them to do, to act, to be. Guys who are at bars walk up to women and get their numbers by acting like pompous alpha male pigs. It makes others feel like they have to be that ridiculous in order to get a woman’s number or in this case stupid in order to get the guy they want. Therefore treating females like morons and lesser beings, when in fact they are in many ways superior then males. Can you imagine a world where intelligence was an attractive desire? Where the media portrays the intelligent people in the world as beautiful? Think of all the shit we could do if people would strive for intelligence instead of chauvinism in every day settings like picking up on a girl!!! Now I’m not saying dont take care of your body and dont look like a super model, but there has to be an even playing field. You have to exercise your mind as much as your body.
I’m getting off my soap box………..NOW!
The lying man is a person who never thinks about the consequences of his words.
He is in the moment where truth can be told, but he uses his free will to not use it. There are many reasons why this world offers such men reasons to spit this filthy vomit. It protects you, so you can cope with your choice.
You sit there at the job that pays your bills, you don’t have time to do your job so you lie about not getting work done. Why not slack off and get that extra hour of sleep that you missed out on? If it doesn’t effect you and allows you to keep slacking off then it shouldn’t be that bad. Right? after all your the center of your life. Which is one of the reasons why everyone lies.
Maybe its the world that teaches us to lie, to protect what is ours? but that just sounds like a poor excuse.
Well I have a new perspective for you to consider.
Your lies hurt you not just the people you are telling them to. They hurt you by infecting your integrity and freezing the blood that runs through your veins. You become a monster with each deception. It makes you more accepting to deceive in the future. If you’ve done it before, why not do it again? If that wasn’t a reason to ruminate about telling the truth then maybe you can think about the people you are hurting?
Your lies has cost a man his job and his way of life. Because you lie, a man no longer has an income and a spoiled reputation to go along with it. Because he no longer has an income he quickly falls into debt. Maybe his wife understands the situation, if your lucky.
Since money is the number one problem with couples, I doubt that luck is there. Because this man no longer has an income, his wife may leave him. A divorce that is unnecessary and heart ache for not only him but his children. Scared for the rest of their life, because of a lie.
Now a good man can’t pay for his child’s needs, for his hearts needs.
Your lies have told a person who loves you with all their heart, that you will stay true to them. Though the person you slept with, sucked, and fucked the night before had nothing to do with the person who loves you. It protects your relationship, your way of life for the time being. Harmless fun, right? Though the person who loves you, and knows you the best can tell there is something wrong. Maybe its the cracked voice you used to tell them “you love them and only them.” Though I believe a common truth about lies. That lies lead to more lies. Eventually the liar is exposed though the damage has already been done.
Pregnant and unaware of whose child it may be.
The oval office is a grand job. The leader of the “Free World.” Celebrity status and a name that will be placed in the history books. A regular Alexander the Great you imagine yourself to be. War Heroes! Not only do you get platinum status but a retirement plan fit for a king. A change is necessary you scream from your pulpit convincing the masses that you are the right choice. Republican or Democrat it really doesn’t matter as long as the people buy what your selling. After all you have already made promises to the people funding your campaign. You do what they want because it secures your place in office. So your sweet sugar coated lies are only lies that secure your legacy that secure the illusion. Your willing to say anything tell any fictitious fable as long as you win. You don’t care about the people in the Country, only yourself. Its people like you that love to send out the poor to fight your wars. Keep taking the American people on your little ride. It will turn you into a monster. Don’t believe me? We are the only country to use a Nuclear Weapon!
Your white shirt is clean and pressed. Your black tie is perfectly tied in a double winsor knot. Your crowd and pulpit awaits you. The excitement of fulfilling your calling in life. You preach to your congregation that the man in the sky wants them to obey his 10 different rules. That if you dont you will go to a tortured inferno when you die. No family, no friends, only a big horned red guy. Your con is almost complete. The all powerful needs you to do one more thing, you continue to preach. “Pay your tithing, pay the church, and you will be blessed with eternal life.” Its a perfect lie. After all…what all seeing, all powerful god wants earthly riches?
There is a funny thing that happens when you lie. I believe life has a way of getting you back for the times that you have lied. If not the liars soul slowly rots away leaving him with no feeling or heart. Because you lie, it kills the most important thing about life. Yourself.
The epiphany comes when you decide to tell the truth for yourself. So you will stay human. So you can love. For it is better to tell the truth then to destroy ones soul or in this case mankind.
(This really is just a post for me to vent on! I have tried for a good part of my life to always tell the truth. I feel that it is more important to tell the truth then it is to hide something or try to protect oneself. The problem with lying is that we all do it. I think we all need to make a conscious effort to be truthful with everyone and most importantly ourselves.)
