Carry

The writing prompt at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie was …”This week think about what meaning/s you can come up with for the word “carry”. We carry all sorts of things in a multitude of ways. Luggage, a load, groceries, a team member, a loved one when they are unwell and need us to carry them from one spot to another. Let your imagination guide you and have fun.”

So normally I would just write something….BUT

The first thing that popped in my head was this poem..so I went looking and actually found it being read by the poet himself!

This song also popped into my head because I always think of it in relation to my best friend. (NOTE: Love the song but this video doesn’t work for me with it..LOL BUT it is the official video so….)

And because this is a WRITING prompt…here is my contribution

Always

I did not carry you in my womb

nay, you are not from me

yet you are of me

let my love be mother’s milk to you

take the offered nourishment

and as it strengthens you

it strengthens me

love and acceptance

always

Creep

I love this song… I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve listened to this…and i have to sing along…loudly/badly.

If you have heard it and don’t like it… you could skip it or you could listen again and/or read the lyrics and you might change your mind 🙂

If you know it and love it: you’re welcome

If you’ve never heard it: you’re welcome and know 2 things

1- it starts off soft and slow but give it a minute 😉

2- Listen Loud

 

 

Creep by Radiohead

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so fuckin’ special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here
I don’t care if it hurts
I wanna have control
I wanna a perfect body
I wanna a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I’m not around
You’re so fuckin’ special
I wish I was special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here, oh, oh
She’s running out the door
She’s running
She run, run, run, run
Run
Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You’re so fuckin’ special
I wish I was special
But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here
I don’t belong here

Blood Into Gold – Peter Buffett featuring Akon

Even if this is not your normal taste in music…give it a listen.  Powerful message!

 

 

 

LYRICS:
When I go to sleep at night
I wonder why I dont feel the pain
From where the sun is shining bright
But empty shells of lives remain

I know the news will tell me why
And well watch others take the fall
But who will hear when someone cries
That saving one can save us all

Can you open your heart?
Will you give me your hand?
Can you look in my eyes?
Will you see who I am?

The blood of your sons and
The blood of your daughters
The blood of my sisters
The blood of my brothers
The blood of your fathers
The blood of your mothers
All that you own through the blood of another

See when I go to sleep at night
Everything seems to fade away
If I live to see daylight
What part of life will I decide to change?

I see the sun.
Kind of reminds me of the gold that brightens our day
I see the rain
And also see all the blood that is washes away

CHORUS

Now its time to shine the light
In all the corners that we fear
We can win without a fight
But only love can take us there

Can you open your heart?
Will you give me your hand?
Can you look in my eyes?
Will you see who I am?

Controversial Domestic Abuse Campaign

Controversial? Good! Maybe it will raise some needed awareness and spark discussion to bring about positive change.
My question: Why are people more upset to see a cartoon drawing with a black eye than a real life person?!
