poem of the day:)

In My Sky At Twilight

In my sky at twilight you are like a cloud
and your form and colour are the way I love them.
You are mine, mine, woman with sweet lips
and in your life my infinite dreams live.

The lamp of my soul dyes your feet,
the sour wine is sweeter on your lips,
oh reaper of my evening song,
how solitary dreams believe you to be mine!

You are mine, mine, I go shouting it to the afternoon's
wind, and the wind hauls on my widowed voice.
Huntress of the depth of my eyes, your plunder
stills your nocturnal regard as though it were water.

You are taken in the net of my music, my love,
and my nets of music are wide as the sky.
My soul is born on the shore of your eyes of mourning.
In your eyes of mourning the land of dreams begin.

-Pablo Neruda

melts my heart for sure:)


Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

-John Lennon

Although I do believe in God, (which I think everyone should!) And positive there is a heaven and I will be there when I die, it is great to have that security for afterlife, I just believe everyone should respect decisions and beliefs of others if they truly feel happy doing what they do and lead a healthy happy life, in the end, it's all the same God, a supreme being. I just don't think it is fair to belittle people because they don't follow the same 'system' you do.Deep down God knows who each and everyone of us truly are, no one else but him can decide who is right or wrong, it's all up to him for only he knows who we truly are in our hearts. The world and people around us influence us to the worst, makes us do things that maybe if we all just kept our positive knowledge flowing wouldn't have been a problem, we would have done better we could have all been greater people with better hearts and minds but now we are all just left to work on it, to be strong. Happiness takes practice and we should practice and end hatred in order to make the world a better place at least for the sake of our kids.... aside from my beliefs I just wanted to share the song and lyrics on here, think about it....Besides the fact that John Lennon always promoted not following 'religious beliefs' , I still love this song, because I get where he is coming from. With lyrics so simple it has a mighty impact on listeners. Imagine all the people living for today, not planning for what will happen after death, being free without that worry on your shoulder about what will happen tomorrow or about the world coming to an end. People loving and in love! Imagine living life in peace, people at peace with themselves and respecting others! Imagine sharing the world, no physical or mental cruelty...One love, one life... Would this ever be possible? Only in our dreams, we all wish for it, but we never work for it. We keep lying,deceiving,judging and condemning instead of respecting, loving, and enjoying!

Even though we are singing John Lennon it reminded me of another, I'm going to end this post with
A Jimmy Hendrix quote;

☮"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."♥
