Excerpt from W.H. Auden's "September First, 1939"

All I have is a voice
To undo the folded lie,
The romantic lie in the brain
Of the sensual man-in-the-street
And the lie of Authority
Whose buildings grope the sky:
There is no such thing as the State
And no one exists alone;
Hunger allows no choice
To the citizen or the police;
We must love one another or die.

-W.H. Auden-

I first heard this while watching "Tuesdays with Morrie",
and to tell you what is it about and how Morrie related the line to us.

This is not a direct quote but its a little something like this.

As an infant we depend on our parents to live.
As an old person we depend on others to live.
And we think that in the middle we're independent
and we dont need dependence. Here's a little secret,
thats the time we need it more.

At first it was quite confusing, but here's how i look at it.
During those days, we tend to try some things, we tend to look out
for ourselves, all we think is ourselves. But little did we know of,
we need other's touch like our parents did when they carried us
upon our shoulders during our younger days. We still need others to
live, hence "We must love one another or die".

We should look out for each other. We must serve as a guide, we might
fall down along the way, then we relate them to those who hasnt yet.
Accept the mistakes and guide those who haven't made it yet. Let no one
suffer the same suffering that we did.

"All I have is a voice, to undo the folded lie".
For we are just an individual in this
huge world we live in. But if we all just hush and listen to
those who share and talk with that little voice. And maybe just maybe
we can have the change that we ask for.

This is just something out from my mind. A screaming though if i may add.

Interview with the Dreamer

These questions came from John aka Monty. To play the game, follow the instructions at the end of this post.

1. Paris Hilton was recently quoted as saying that she thinks those people who approach and ask to take pictures with her are losers. What are your thoughts on this? Does she fall under your category of hot women?

I don’t know if its just me, but she doesn't interest me at all... that’s what I hate about her, I don’t know if she's just stupid or just blonde?

She won’t even pass to me as hot even if you put two buns over her and put her in a toaster... simple as...

2. Share to us the dumbest thing you ever did in high-school. Better if you got in trouble for it.

Well, I think writing something on the chair while the prefect was passing by the corridors... coincidence? I guess not! I got suspended for a week for that damn thing... and here's the dumbest alibi... "Sir I was just trying to explain a math problem to my seatmate..."... ON AN ARM CHAIR!!!!... That’s why the papyrus paper was innovated... oh well...

3. Are you a person who’s willing to hook up with a hot, sexy older woman? Is it going to be just a physical thing or would you allow yourself to fall in love?

wow... this is deep man... very well... I think just a hook up if she's up to it hahaha... or if she's willing to give me a Porsche then why not (blind item... I know you guys know this local celebrity... hers a clue... big tits and annoying)... but falling in love is different... man you have to put up on everything she does... plus she's older... that would mean... ANOTHER MOTHER man... all the nagging and the nagging and the nagging I have to put up to everyday... (John I know you're feelin me on this one)... that would just suck, but then again... show me the Porsche...

4. Did you believe the things that were said on The Da Vinci Code? Why do you say so?

Ahhh... a question on my faith... well the book was good, fiction yet it seemed like it was based on facts... if it was something like the National Treasure then why not I might go to France and dig up under the Louvre...

It was just fiction man; I'm not a kid anymore that believes that the Ninja Turtles exist...

5. What do you think is it about gangster movies like Scarface, or The Godfather, or even Lock, Stock that guys love to watch even though most of the characters there are obviously evil and corrupt?

It’s the take no shit from anyone attitude that we aspire... For me it’s simply entertainment... and for me to feel macho and say... "Yeah I’ve seen that... ASTIG NO??" plus it arms us with quotations like "Say hello to my little friend"... Lock stock and two smoking barrels is different... I got it out of curiosity and I heard it was funny so there...

The Godfather is different... if we look deeper into its message aside from the killing and cursing, it still has a message about family ties man (TY to Red for telling me about the message)...

Scarface is out of curiosity too, and yes... it did answer my question that it is possibly the movie that holds the record of saying the F-Word the most...

Lost in your absence

singing songs of sadness and regrets
slow meloies shows my melancholy
lonliness together with gloom
how will i ever be fit to bloom
somehow my heart aches to its doom
alone hurting in my room
my feelings guided my hand to write again
days passed by since i last scribbled
somehow words dont fit my emotions
it all began when it ended
my last glimpse of you within my arms
my last sight of your smile towards mine
the hapiness we shared
the joy you gave me
somehow made me feel im wanted
like the flower needed your light
but since you're gone
im back to where i was
im once again lost...
in the absence of my sun...

Here Tonight - Hale

Note: "Recently i just cant find the right words to write, good thing these guys did. It seems that they took the words out of my heart heh. Anyway, here it is, the lyrics of the song Here Tonight by Hale"

So long to you my love
Don't be afraid to run away
I know you'll be okay
Just take your time to find

But i need you here tonight
I need you here inside
I need you here tonight
I really, really need you here tonight

Made up my mind on this
Too late for me to hold you back
Maybe too short or dumb
To cry for you but i will anyway

It's all my fault
To feel this way for you that day
I know i am and i will
Though it's wrong, so wrong

Cause i need you here tonight
I need you here inside
I need you here tonight
I really, really need you here

I need you, i need you
I need you here inside
I need you i need you
I really, really need you
