I Feel Good

I feel good... So good. I knew that I would.

Schools pretty good this year. At least it's bearable this year. 7th grade is better than 6th. I think most can agree. You know people better this year too. Anyways there's not much to say. I'm just really tired now, so I'll talk to ya later!!

I Hope You Dance

In honor of Hurricane Katrina victims. And the World.

LeAnn Womack
I Hope You Dance

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 beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that 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
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' 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....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that 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....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance..
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone

One World

Black Eyed Peas
Where Is The Love
Feat. Justin Timberlake
Whats wrong with the world mama
People living like they aint got no mamas
I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things thatll bring ya trauma
Over seas yea we trying to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin
...In the USA!
The big CIA the bloods and the crypts and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
and to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then u bound to get awrate
yea
Badness is what you demonstrate
And thats exactly how anger works and operates
But you gotta have love its to set us straight
take control of your mind and meditate
let your soul gravitate
to the luv 'yall
chorus:People killin
People dyin
Children hurt and women cryin
When you practice what you preach
and would u turn the other cheek
father father father help us
send some guidance from above
cuz people got me got me questionin
where is the love (6 times)
They just think the same
Always in change
new days are strange
Is the world the same?
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that dont belong
Nation droppin bombs
Chemical gasses filling lungs of liitle ones
on going sufferage as the youth die young
so you ask your self
Is the loving really gone
so I can ask myself
Really what is going wrong
in this world that we livin in
people keep on givin in
making wrong decisions from the visions that we livin in
not respectin eachother
The lands down under
A war is goin on but the reasons undercover
The truth is kept secret and swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know luv
wheres the love 'yall
come on
I don't really know
Wheres the truth yall?
I don't really know
Wheres the luv yall
Chorus
I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As Im gettin older our people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin
selfishness got ourselves followin the wrong dorection
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what hey see in the cinemas
yo
Whatever happened to the values of humainty
whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreding love we spreading animosity
Like the way were standing leading us away from unity
Thats the reason why sometimes Im feeling under
Thats the reason why sometimes Im feeling down
Its no wonder why sometimes Im feelin under
Gotta keep the faith alive so luv us found
Chorus

At Home

Hey evry1 we just got home a few minutes ago. We went to our Mng. May and Darius's new place for their house warming party. It's a real nice place. I told mom, "We have got to get one of those lofts. Yeah. Lofts. Real important," I says. I had a nice time with the babies. Their so cute!! Kekoah is almost 2 I think. And Kaloni is only a few months old I reckon. Kekoah is running around and all smiles. He's so funny. Then Kaloni just wants to get out and play like his brother it seems. He's already trying to sit up and stuff. It scares me holding a tiny baby like that, I don't know about his head rolling around all over the place, and he wriggles a lot. I held him for a long time. He spit up on me when mom was swinging him back and forth toward me in a superman position, it all just came out. Being with thim makes me miss my Josie and Ange. Ahhhh... It would be so nice if they could come in the winter. Maybe around Christmas time. Josie would like the snow and stuff. Poor Angie hurt herself the other day. She was bouncing off the walls again and she fell backwards and landed on her wrist. Auntie O says she sprained it. At least it's not broken, that Ange is worrying me to death. Sheesh. I miss them so much!

Hello again!

Ahhh, it's been a while now. I've been falling behind on my posts lately. School has been keeping me quite busy lately. I'm soooo glad it's finally Saturday. All week (since Monday!) I have been thinking it to be Friday. Sheesh. Last night mom took us to Chai's, we had some Boba and Noodles, we ate outside since the weather felt perfect. I think this school year will be much better than last. Everything seems much more beautiful and my insights are appearing much more optimistic. Infact I just finished typing up a quick "sermon" about the emails I had recieved and the pictures I had viewed just prior. Anyhow, after that I don't have much to say, so I'll just post some lyrics. I've been wanting to for a while now, and I've been wondering which might work well so here goes:

"I'm Like A Bird" by Nelly Furtado

You’re beautiful, that’s for sure
You’ll never ever fade
You’re lovely, but it’s not for sure
That I won’t ever change

And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

1 - I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is
I don’t know where my home is
And baby all I need for you to know is

I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is
I don’t know where my home is
All I need for you to know is

Your faith in me brings me to tears
Even after all these years

And it pains me so much to tell
That you don’t know me that well
And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

Repeat 1

It’s not that I wanna say goodbye
It’s just that every time you try
To tell me, me that you love me
Each and every single day I know
I’m going to have to eventually give you away

And though my love is rare
And though my love is true, yeah
Hey I’m just scared
That we may fall through
Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah

Repeat 1 to fade
