Phoenix HaikuYou can recover
Never give in to darkness
Do not lose yourself
Your pain is real but
So is your ability
To survive and grow
In a constant state of flux
And dreaming always
Fight for tomorrow
No matter what befalls you
The phoenix lives on
Pride Without PrejudiceWhen did it stop being okay to be proud of your heritage?
Surely, many nations, if not all, have had a time when they were in power. Chances are, at some point in history, your ancestors were part of a nation that was dominant over the other nations in that part of the world. If there's any comment that can be made about human nature, it's that that power was likely abused, or that cruel things were done to obtain that position in the first place. Now, seeing how most dominant nations operated in strict hierarchies, probability suggests that your ancestors were not near the top. That is, your great-great-great.....great grandparents weren't dictators, they were more likely servants to dictators. Does that ease the guilt?
My question is, why is there guilt? You are not your great-great-great-great grandparents. You're not even your parents. You're you. And it's up to you to make that mean
mechanici want to kiss every aching wound you have,
bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes
but this dripping heart of mine can only feel
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth
so i only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that i care all too much
and in order to fix you up again,
i would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but i just haven’t figured out how.
