Footprints.I want to be quoted, I want to be seen, I want to be heard.
I want to be believed, to be admired, to be respected, to be understood.
To be contemplated, to be defended, to be thought of; I want to leave something behind.
I want to live forever in memory, I want forever to live in me.
I want eternity to hold me through the night, I want endlessness to wrap me in its warmth.
I want to exist 1000 years from now, in strangers I have only seen in my dreams.
I want to impact people, I have not yet met, who know me intimately because of my art, my expression, my words, my ideas, my vision. I want to be the inspiration for other artists, just lik
Vida.Life tests you sometimes. It throws you so hard onto the ground, you can't feel anything but pain, taste anything but blood, or see anything clearly because of your teared-up eyes.
Sometimes you hurt so much, real physical pain doesn't come close, strangely it seems like a relief. A pain that lingers, and makes you feel like you are sleepwalking through your nightmare of a life.
Life is the teacher, preacher, the abuser, and the user, but it is you that decides how to deal with it all.
Life sits idly by, watching you walk across the universe, it throws obstacles along your path to see how tough you really are, how much you really want somet
Does Morality Have a Place in the Modern World?
Many are confused as to the above question. Others are apathetic. What does the Bible really teach on the matter? Please see my May 17th journal entry, and have your Bible ready!
1001 AR Quotes - No.2Animals can communicate quite well. And they do. And generally speaking, they are ignored.
Don't You Quit!Have you grown weary? Are you tired of feeling small? Do you feel as though you've given your all, yet you have gotten nowhere?
Inspired, you create something you're proud of. Yet, try as you might, your creation goes unnoticed - as if nobody cares at all!
The months fly, and still you wait for a comment - a word of encouragement! However, nothing comes of it - no, nothing at all!
Now, as you wait for an answer that isn't forthcoming, you notice your motivation has taken a dive! Sure, you continue to work - oftentimes for many hours - and with very little to eat! However, the inspiration just seems to be in short supply, these days. "Why b
The failure of the Cosmological argumentI haven´t written anything in a while, so I decided to write this both as a mental exercise and because my watchers are probably wondering if I´m still alive :). But it’s also something important I want to give my thoughts on.
We’ve all heard of the cosmological argument, one of, if not the, most common arguments for the existence of a god. For those who don’t know, this is how the argument goes:
1. Every finite and contingent being has a cause.
2. A causal loop cannot exist.
3. A causal chain cannot be of infinite length.
4. Therefore, a First Cause (or something that is not an effect) must exist.
The first problem lies
Happy I was shoveling the pancake gently off the pan with my spatula when the idea came to me. An automatic response to my ever non-coherent thoughts, though comprehension of my mind had always been impossible. It was merely the need to fill an empty void tucked away into the bottom of my pockets that existed simply for the chance to store away answers. It was always interesting to see what others came up with when I popped that question mark into thin air, even if that question mark never normally made it past their ears.
I glanced to the left, where the little girl sat there, fiddling with her new and improved iPhone -- the latest of the entir
Gun Control is Bullshit. Look What it's doing.A student was suspended for eating a poptart into the shape of a gun:
Really? A "Future" terrorist?
A student was suspended because he had a picture of a gun on his laptop background:
What's going on here?
A student was suspended for "thinking" about a gun.
HOW CAN THEY KNOW WHAT HE WAS THINKING?
"I just knew he was thinking about a gun."
A 16 year old student is suspended for wrestling a loaded revolver away from a kid who intended to shoot other kids.
Sorry guys, I was wrong, I should have let him shoot your asses, that would have been the right thing to do.
A KINDER-GARDENER WAS SUSPENDED FOR A BUBBLE GUN:
That Big Blue SkyI sit for many a night to contemplate my right to grasp tight
the knowledge I hold dear to me. I see people tossing their thoughts
at subjects frought with usleness or lack of reason. I thought I
had fought for the same reasons as others studied with me, instead
I feel treason is a leading sting to bring even the greatest of temples down.
Yet here I sit upon my window, doing what feels like nothing to stop the
poison running through my veins travelling to my brain. It drives me
to the brink as my mind begins to shrink and insanity steps into reality.
The depravity I surround myself with to try but justify it's helpful existence.
But even as I sit here with mysteries of secrets swirling and twirling in my mind,
I crack a knowing smile that even as I sit here and try I cannot break the wonder
of that big blue sky....
Agnostic Atheist How do you go about proving God's existence or nonexistence? I would like to discuss it because it's usually avoided in polite conversation for good reason. But this essay or rant or whatever is not polite conversation and will probably offend some people.
First of all, how do we prove God's existence? Well, from what I know, there is no hard, empirical evidence that proves God's existence. There isn't any, none, and the Bible obviously doesn't count because it only assumes God exists; it never factually proves that God exists. Miracles don't count either, common sense can even dictate they aren't real. And people that say th
HeavenIts foretold to be a great place. The place where no one ever dies, no one ever cries. How I wish to be there. Hand in hand with all of my lost loved ones, with God himself. I'm so far away down here on this miserable Earth. I want to cross the line. I would not be sad. I would not take the time to say goodbye. We do not decide when we die though. We must patiently wait and do what God plans for us to do. So don't waste time. Do what you need to do. Live life to the fullest. Forgive and forget. Love and be loved. Don't give up, because believe it or not you are here for a reason. You might not think you are important, but you are gravely mist
Break Away I've tried again and again. I've gone through experiment after experiment. I've gone through idea after idea, yet I still can't find a way to break away from you. You cling to my heart like gorilla glue. You make me unbelievably and indescribably happy, but when you make me sad I fall into a pit of despair. I can't stop crying. I can't stop thinking of you, which makes my eyes water even more. I have decided that you are a danger to my mind. You cause too much damage to my heart. Damage that I will never be able to mend even in a thousand years, but even after all the damage is done I can't help but to come crawling back to you. I try to sto
Seeking Silence I heard yelling. I heard blaring music. I heard the sound of many people fighting. I heard a chorus of laughter. I covered my ears and closed my eyes and wished it all away. I didn't want to be here. I didn't want to be anywhere near these rambunctious people. They made my head spin and my ears ache. There was no where I could escape to. I dreamed of silence. I have lived without it so long that it was long needed.
Dark As I walk down the dark streets all alone I feel like I finally belong. The sky matches what I fell inside, dark. Not even the dull light of the moon was shining now. In my heart nothing ever shone. Not the moon, not the sun, not even the stars. I miss their rays of joy. I miss happiness, but now I can't even remember what it's like to be happy. I've known sadness for so long I have forgotten how to even pretend to be happy. I have forgotten how to laugh. I have forgotten how to smile. I don't even know what makes people happy anymore. I wish I did. I wish I could learn how to smile, how to laugh. I wish I could be happy, but I am to afraid
Light As it pierces through the clouds, that encaged it only moments ago, a smile appears on my face. As long as I have it I will never be lost. As long as I have it I will never be sad. It reminds me that the sorrow I feel inside is only temporary and it will soon shine through and wash away my tears. It is my savior. It is light.
HetaOni meme (written version)1) First, introduce yourself. Who are you and how/why did you enter the mansion?
I'm MLYNNIUM! And I entered the mansion, because I thought it looked super-de-duperdy cool! (I was sadly mistaken)

The Red Balloon I watch amazed by all the vibrant colors as several balloons fly high up into the sky. They make the boring blue sky alive and happy. I watch as the wind starts to blow they sway and turn. Luckily they managed to stay all together except for one very small but bright red balloon. It was headed North all alone. I wondered what the future would be for this pretty balloon. Sure there would be hardships, but I knew it would be able to get threw them all after all it was a strong little balloon. Instead of doing what everyone else did it did the unexpected, it did the right thing. When this bright little strong red balloon is on the verge of defl
