Last year you were sent to garrison Yuezhi,
Soon the whole army was destroyed below the walls.
Since then, Tibet and China have been cut off, no news;
Are you dead, or alive, wandering some distant land forever?
No one went to bring back the abandoned tents;
A few horses returned with torn flags we couldn’t make out.
I would have a ceremony for you, but what if you are alive?
So, all I can do is shed a few tears for you, lost at the end of the sky.
I’m not going to waste any more time playing judge and jury over everybody else when I’ve never found myself completely not guilty.
In fact, compared to many? My hands are probably filthy.
So we can make devils of each other.
Or we can take that energy and make gods of ourselves.
And I’d rather live my life on a mission of building a heaven,
Than working demolition in hell.
Build big the beauty, build big the love
And I swear the hate, the fear will one day disappear
And it all starts right here.

She’s eating her fifty square feet of death.
I’m eating my organic vegan local salad (no meat no cheese and please hold the dressing cause I don’t want to exploit the labour of the little honeybees).
But when we meet you, she will be a thousand times more likely to greet you with open arms than me.
…I’ve got a closet full of protest signs buried by all the times I wish I’d been kinder to a friend.

Then there are those who are still not sure, but are quite capable of asking “Are you mixed?” You know, I hate to be the one to school you, but nobody ever said that shit was foolproof, so yeah. I’m mixed. Mixed and confused as to why you would ask me such a stupid ass question. And don’t tell me not to be pissed. Spend a day in my shoes being accosted with “Are you that? Are you this?” until you’re ready to say with me ‘Yeah. I’m mixed.
Half woman, half BITCH.’
95% of the time I find the guesses kinda funny and harmless. Well, maybe 70% of the time. But there are definitely days when I feel like this. :’)
In love with Yellow Rage forever.
“The world is hurting.
The world is hurting more than it ever has before and you wanna know why?
Because of the guy in a corner with the sign that says “GOD HATES FAGS”
Because of the soccer mom waving her American flag
Because of the frat boy driving his SUV
Because of the brainwashed millions watching TV
Because of the-
What if the world is hurting because of me?
