Favorite Quote:
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

I also like this quote by Gnarls Barkley:
"You are the best. You are the worst. You are average. Your love is a part of you. You try to give it away because you cannot bear its radiance, but you cannot separate it from yourself. To understand your fellow humans, you must understand why you give them your love. You must realize that hate is but a crime-ridden subdivision of love. You must reclaim what you never lost. You must take leave of your sanity, and yet be fully responsible for your actions." -Gnarls Barkley, in a letter to the legendary rock critic Lester Bangs

Death by huger,
Death by hate,
Death by the fat screaming on your waist
Death is not the beginning,
the middle or the end
it is not an imposter trying to be your friend

Why should some people die cold,
Alone in the street,
And some people die old,
With all their money from Wall Street
Why do the fat get all the food,
Not the starving after famine and monsoons
Why do the rich buy diamonds,
Ignoring the fact people died to find them

Death to huger,
Death to hate,
Death to the fat screaming on your waist
Death is the beginning,
the middle, and the end
it is the imposter trying to be your friend

I decided to write this poem because I turned on the news.
