I won't give in
I put fresh heart
into myself
But I flee my thoughts

I won't give in
I've sealed my mouth
Won't say a thing
At least not out loud

Funny, I'd like to seduce you
Funny how i feel
Maybe I'm lost on the rough side
Maybe this time it's for real
But I would like to be
But funny things for you
I'll manage a seven day working week
For your sake
As Mary goes round on the playground
She is never asking ever too much

I'm getting nervous
I hang around
It's no big deal
I'll sort it out

I'd like to tell you all my
Mud stories
Mud stories
Mud on my raincoat still
Much stories
Mud stories
Mud on my raincoat still
Mud stories
Much fuss about a cheap thrill

I won't give in
There is no chance
I'll have enough
with one romance

I'd like to tell you 'bout my
Mud stories
Mud stories
Mud on my raincoat still
Much stories
Mud stories
Mud on my raincoat still
Mud stories
Much fuss about a cheap thrill

Wild Geese

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.

Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
~Mary Oliver

air! in my bones where the marrow should be
but what i lack for guts and blood
i make up for in dreams

love! and you're wondering how it works
the heart in the natural world
it's a wonder that science can hurt

i am made to fly
you are made for flight
from the structure of our cells
to the chambers we share inside
so let's become like birds
we will become like birds

hope! it's the one thing that science will prove
what you dont have hope for you lose
evolution is what you choose

i am made to fly
you are made for flight
from the structure of our cells
to the chambers we share inside
so let's become like birds
we will become like birds

air! in my bones where the marrow should be
but what i lack for guts and blood
i make up for in dreams

2 songs I love:

Breakaway - Kelly Clarksong
Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I just stared out my window
Dreaming of a could-be
And if I'd end up happy
I would pray (I would pray)

Trying not to reach out
But when I'd try to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I pray (I would pray)
I could breakaway

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
I'll do what it takes til' I touch the sky
I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won't forget all the ones that I loved
I'll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Wanna feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get onboard a fast train
Travel on a jet plane, far away (I will)
And breakaway

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
I'll do what it takes til' I touch the sky
I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won't forget all the ones that I loved
I'll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Building with a hundred floors
swinging 'round revolving doors."
Maybe I don't know where they'll take me but
Gotta keep moving on, moving on
Fly away, breakaway

I'll spread my wings
And I'll learn how to fly
Though it's not easy to tell you goodbye
I gotta take a risk
Take chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won't forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway, breakaway, breakaway

I hope you dance - Lee Ann Womack
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Reconsider
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance
(Where those years have gone)

(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

"Still I Rise"

Jul. 11th, 2005 | 06:30 pm
mood: infuriated~~Infuriated~~
posted by: angels_heart27 in magic_of_words

Just recently I have had a very traumatic experience happen to me!!!
Of course I am saddened & on a gloomy, dark path I travel @ the moment feeling my way through the darkness, not too sure were I am heading! I am so confused & angered by the certainty of pain I will feel when I rise in the morning! I know that it will not go on forever BUT that statement does not hold my hand today! It does not confort me as it has in the past, b/c in the past it has let me down!!! I have been done dirty by those above me & I know that I shall rise from the ashes of pain & suffering BUT right now, today, I feel as if I am NO one special! I feel today as if I have not made a difference in the lives of others as I have always thrieved on in my profession & in my family & friend's lives, yet I know that this is just a phase that may carry on involentarily as long as it wishes! I just want the one thing that sustained me in my life & felt as if it were my second wind back!!! I can only hope & pray that it won't be long before I rise again out of this gloom!!! Although I know that this poem holds another meaning for Miss Maya It holds another for me as well! We as human beings tied down to our lives, or jobs, or chores & errands are all slaves, Our ancestors also worked hard to have a life, did my Grandmother ever feel this way, did she cry amidst her beautiful eyes??? Did her mother feel as I do now, did she ever show her pain to others??? Wilst such things were not always spoken of by women, it was taboo, women had to play the roll of the house wife & a good servant to her husband & the church!!! In reality we are all slaves to our duties & insecurities!!!
I hope that you enjoy & respect this poem as I do now, as it comforts me in my pain!

"Still I Rise"
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

A Warm Hello

music: Madonna - Angel, Having a slight 80's flashback
posted by: arnematia in magic_of_words

Hey all -smiles-

I'm new here, just this minute joined. I discovered this community on my travels around LJ land and decided i would like to become a member here. I enjoy writing my own short stories and poetry, that's when my muse isn't being fickle -smiles-

While i'm here i would like to share a poem with you from one of my favourite poets, Emily Bronte, if that's ok.

Stars

Ah! why, because the dazzling sun
Restored our Earth to joy,
Have you departed, every one,
And left a desert sky?

All through the night, your glorious eyes
Were gazing down in mine,
And, with a full heart's thankful sighs,
I blessed that watch divine.

I was at peace, and drank your beams
As they were life to me;
And revelled in my changeful dreams,
Like petrel on the sea.

Thought followed thought, star followed star,
Through boundless regions, on;
While one sweet influence, near and far,
Thrilled through, and proved us one!

Why did the morning dawn to break
So great, so pure, a spell;
And scorch with fire the tranquil cheek,
Where your cool radiance fell?

Blood-red, he rose, and, arrow-straight,
His fierce beams struck my brow;
The soul of nature sprang, elate,
But mine sank sad and low!

My lids closed down, yet through their veil
I saw him, blazing, still,
And steep in gold the misty dale,
And flash upon the hill.

I turned me to the pillow, then,
To call back night, and see
Your worlds of solemn light, again,
Throb with my heart, and me!

It would not do--the pillow glowed,
And glowed both roof and floor;
And birds sang loudly in the wood,
And fresh winds shook the door;

The curtains waved, the wakened flies
Were murmuring round my room,
Imprisoned there, till I should rise,
And give them leave to roam.

Oh, stars, and dreams, and gentle night;
Oh, night and stars, return!
And hide me from the hostile light
That does not warm, but burn;

That drains the blood of suffering men;
Drinks tears, instead of dew;
Let me sleep through his blinding reign,
And only wake with you!
~Emily Bronte 1818-1848

14 Septembre 2001 : Alanis a envoyé une lettre à ses fans concernant les attentats de mardi aux USA :
Sweet friends...

I send you all so much love during this time filled with so many emotions. There is grief and shock and anger and confusion and despondence and depression and analysis and fury and numbness and fear and disbelief and denial and compassion and concern and love. All of which, I feel, is totally understandable and natural...



This is a time of true self-definition in the face of what has happened and I send support during this process of defining who we are in accordance to what has gone on over the last few days. You are not alone. This is an intense time, the likes of which most of us (particularly of my generation) have never experienced before.



I send love and care and empathy to those whose family and friends were directly touched by what has happened... and I send the same love to those who are affected because they feel others' pain as deeply as if it were their own (and I believe that others' pain is our own). I send love to everyone who is afraid.



My hope is that we respond from the highest level of self-care as is possible as well as with a curiosity toward what the root of the motivations to attack were. The amount of large decisions being made over the next many hours are the kinds that can attempt to form a collective message about who we think we are as people and as a country. My wish is that this message represents us as a people who can take care of ourselves with strength and conviction as well as our being able to show our wisdom, compassion and awareness of our interconnectedness as human beings at the same time.



I send support to those who, at this time, are at the helm of making these decisions... may they be able to respond with strength, clarity, wisdom and compassion during a very fraught time.



This seems to me to be an amazing time of value forming and of defining who we truly are. And I offer as much support and comfort as I can in these words to all of us who are doing so. May we define our beliefs as consciously as possible and may our choices be fueled by the desire to understand and resolve rather than to perpetuate these complex conflicts and all that is at the root of them.



I love you.



alanis
