Love Your Environment as You Love Yourself

Standard

img_1726

Many people say that our body is sacred,

I believe that this is true.

We only have one body that we cannot interchange.

So we try to do our best by taking care our bodies,

We wash and clean it,

Eat healthy so that we can have ever glowing skin.

We treat our body with gentle care,

Because we know that we do not get another one in this lifetime.

We know that our bodies are sensitive,

So we know which the type of lotions and soaps and clothing to put on.

Many of us don’t take our body for granted because it’s so precious.

But why do we take our environment for granted, when it’s just as precious?

We litter,

We pollute,

Without thinking about the consequences

Because some of us doesn’t believe the environment affects us directly.

However, the same way our body’s absorb lotions and soaps through the skin,

Our skin absorbs pollution into our bodies.

Those pollutions enter in and affect our lungs and brains,

If our environment is not clean than neither are we!

We must love to take care of our environments as we do our bodies,

We must learn to be gentle and kind and caring to our environment

So that our environment can be gentle and caring for us.

 

 

Female Infanticide

Standard

Down the Valley of the Shadow

Another paper I wrote for a class, this time, about eight months ago.  The majority of it was written in an airport in California because I procrastinate.  A lot.

Young women in India seem to be disappearing.  There isn’t a date that can be pointed at to show when it started, but it is clear that the sex ratio in India is not what it should be.  For example, in Dehli there are only 821 women for every 1,000 men (Spinelli 17).  This is startling when compared with the 1,029 women per 1,000 men found in the US (Spinelli 17).  According to the Azad India Foundation, over 5 million girls have “disappeared” from India over a period of 15 years (Gray 4).  In nature there are generally more males born than females, but the ratios found in India are well beyond what one would find naturally (“The war on baby…

You Don’t Know Me

Standard

If I was to tell you everything

You still wouldn’t know me.

Even if I told it to a person

Who went through the same stuff

They wouldn’t understand.

Because we all hurt differently

And don’t feel the same.

 They wouldn’t understand my pain

They wouldn’t understand the hurt

They wouldn’t be able to vision what I saw.

Because we all feel and see differently.

Have different views of the world

So no matter how hard they try

If I was to tell them everything,

They still wouldn’t know me.

Heart

Standard

A caring and soft heart will get you hurt,

But a cold heart, will get you no love.

No heart, and you’re dead

A warm heart brings cold hands, nobody wants to hold.

But a heart like a child with no mother in the want, 

will bring you peace and a sense of life.

To love, care and sing all of the goodness that a heart can bring.

Is something we all want, and sing and leap and dance for.

Though some of us disclaim these things.

We all want what a heart can bring.

We’ve all cried the lies of not wanting much or nothing. 

And we cried tears for those lies.

Because we all have a heart, and every heart wants love.

So don’t listen to the fool who says he has no heart.

Because with no heart you have no sense of life.

Or what you have.

So how will he know he has no heart?

Because he too, does have a heart.

Full of wanting to be understood.

Wanting to relate and speak words of untold stories and never seen dreams.

Wanting another heart to just sit down and just listen for once.

We all have a heart full of the same wants but different goals and different dreams.

Some of us want more than others and some want even more.

We, too have a heart.

Do I Matter?

Standard

Sometimes I just sit back and wonder,

Wonder if I wasn’t born,

Will life be the same ?

Sometimes I wonder,

Am I important to this life ?

Am I needed ?

I wonder if I die

How will it affect others ?

In my mind I want to die,

In my heart I want to live !

Am I suicidal?

Am I crazy ?

I know we have our ups and downs,

But is my downs taking over ?

When I sit back and think it all through,

I realize that I am apart of a family that cares !

I am wanted !

I am loved !

I am special !

I am somebody that people want me to be somebody !

I have a part in people hearts

That wants me to accomplish !

So I hear by today,

That I am somebody special !

I will not let my lows

Over take my highs !

I will not let bad things,

Out do good !

Because I sit back and think about it,

Am I apart of a caring family ?

Am I loved by people who care ?

Am I needed ?

Yes !

I know for a fact that I’m here for a reason !
