Of A Life Less Ordinary

The one who cured
Who was the one to endure

Who was the one that cared
The one that shared
Who was the one to be fair

Who was the one to die
The one who cried
Who was The One to be tried

Anxious Wandering

scream
I don’t enjoy the silence and the noises upset my ease. 

I don’t want to be disconnected and your eyes rattle my core.
I don’t desire mundane routine and uncertainties steal my peace.
I don’t like the lonely shadows and the crowds obstruct my air.
I don’t want to feel unnoticed and your looks disrupt my poise.
    I want to feel belonging, but I cannot shed my fear.

A Christmas Speech on Peace:

“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. We are made to live together because of the interrelated structure of reality. Did you ever stop to think that you can’t leave for your job in the morning without being dependent on most of the world? You get up in the morning and go to the bathroom and reach over for the sponge, and that’s handed to you by a Pacific islander. You reach for a bar of soap, and that’s given to you at the hands of a Frenchman. And then you go into the kitchen to drink your coffee for the morning, and that’s poured into your cup by a South American. And maybe you want tea: that’s poured into your cup by a Chinese. Or maybe you’re desirous of having cocoa for breakfast, and that’s poured into your cup by a West African. And then you reach over for your toast, and that’s given to you at the hands of an English-speaking farmer, not to mention the baker. And before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world. This is the way our universe is structured, this is its interrelated quality. We aren’t going to have peace on Earth until we recognize this basic fact of the interrelated structure of all reality.”
     ~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Peace on Earth.
