is there a place where poems that were never shared go?

would you

would you rather live in a world where there was no violence but a lot of racism? or
would you rather live in a world where there was no racism but a lot of violnce?

i know i know some may say that one can not exist without the other but hypothetically which would you prefer?

found some lyrics i like

"Home" by Michael Buble

Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home

May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
Just wanna go home
Oh I miss you, you know

And I've been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I'm fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it's just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another airplane
Another sunny place
I'm lucky I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I've got to go home

Let me go home
I'm just too far from where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like I'm living someone else's life
It's like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
But this was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day has come
And gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And I'm surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel alone
Oh, let go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I've had my run
Baby, I'm done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It will all right
I'll be home tonight
I'm coming back home

I went to rennes on the upper westside of france(bretagne). i got to hang out with a new friend. I went to St. malo where some of world war 2 took place. the beach was nice and i bet it would have been better if it was sunny and hot. i found some pretty shells. my friend told me that this writer that is buried on this cliff is standing in his grave so that he can face the sea and for some other reason. this amused me i and i have tried looking it up but can't find anything. if i could rem. his name i would probably have no problems. i went to a wedding party with my friend. it was really cute and everyone was really nice. they had dinner at this cabin type getaway in the country. it gave me ideas for my wedding b/c they had like a hostel set up in which everyone had bunkbeds to sleep in. the new husband did a set with his band which was nice. he has a nice voice. my friend is in a band but i didnt get to see them perform. long long weekend i fed a baby goat. i havent done that since petting zoo days. oh yeah at the beach it was fun b/c we had to tread through the sea b/c the water had rised above the walkway. i tried to record a song but that didnt work out. lol i know i am forgetting things but maybe i can add on later.


I went to Chambord today with the class. Field trip day no class! The castle was okay not overly impressive. The outside design was the best part. These castles seem to just be musuems with a few items of the royals left behind. I was disappointed to see a show while in England about how they retouch paintings in these castles. It is nice to see them vibrant but it would be nice to see them untouched. I really hoped to see the Mona Lisa in Louvre all torn around the edges like it had lived a little.(although it has, it just doesn't look like it) I had a good time though. I finally tried a plain butter and sugar crepe and it was yummy. I got some souvenirs and gifts. I have so many postcards now. I have some from almost every place I have been to. Saturday is Versailles, that should be fun. These trips are making these last weeks here go by very fast. See you soon Atlantis

p.s. i forgot the good parts
on the way there the bus brokedown. then we had to wait on another bus. a few of us climbed this tree. it was nice sitting in the tree felt pretty inspirational. then on the way back a bunch of us had to piss really bad but the toillette on the bus was locked or not working and the bus rode around for an hour and ended up back at chambord. then we had to hold it for another hour and got use the bathroom at school when we dropped off the students we picked up from the university. wow

if only

if only advice got you through misery and sadness like it does a complex choice. then sadness would be temporary.

if only new orleans had a winter and had a few snowstorms maybe crime would go down during those storms and people would stay home and watch a movie or something.

voyage 2 atlantis

Isley Brothers Lyrics - Voyage To Atlantis Lyrics

Can I go on my way without you
Whoa...how can I know
If I go on my way without you
Whoa...where would I go

Set sail with me
Misty lady, set my spirit free
New love to find
And though I leave another behind

I'll always (Come back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)

She's my lady, now and ever
Whoa...how can I know
Can we go all the way together
Whoa...let it be so

So we'll say our last goodbye
And we'll it this time
Hey...ho...set sail with me
To a paradise out beyond the sea

Atlantis (Is back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)
Atlantis (Is back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)

Atlantis (Is back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)
Atlantis (Is back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)

Atlantis (Is back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)
I'll always (Come back to you)

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge.
The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.
The winner was a four-year-old child whose next-door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,
"Nothing, I just helped him cry"

So yeah I had to leave amsterdam midway through the week b/c most of the hotels were booked and i wasn't found of the hostel we stayed in the first night. i wound up in england to visit one of my online friends that makes beats. i flew into liverpool and had to catch a train to manchester and then to preston but i called my friend at manchester and he came and got me. so we hung out. i met his girlfriend who is this girl that i met online some years back on the same website i met the beatmaker. crazy small world. her and her friend were really cool.i plan to go to toronto which is where they are from to visit. i got to catch a dead prez show which was great. i mean i had to sit through like 5 acts before them and was drained once they got to the last act before them. when they got on they rocked it though. then after the show they started playing like jungle/house/drum and bass and everyone left in the club started doing that spazzed out dance. crazy felt like a dream that went down hill. i got some more underground cds that i probably wont listen to but you never know. it was all together cool. it has caused me to think about my life more. vacations are great.
ok thats it
