Some stuff I wrote late at night.

Philosophy and Politics, from Aristotle to Trudeau, discussions that cover the gamut from civilizations, societies, how they're run and why we're here.

For some reason I don't think that if a poem was read out to me in Japanese or Hebrew that it would convey the thoughts and emotions intended. Music can be considered a universal language in that it creates atmosphere and changes moods via rhythm and harmonics.. math, not so much.

Math can be easily translated without the worry of who the translator is to get the intended message. There are set rules and things are either true or false. There is not in between in math. Math is absolute.

Poems are enjoyable because you create your own meanings from the authors words. They wouldn't be enjoyable if a poem came with a 5 page paper detailing his exact meanings.

I suppose in that way math would be considered a universal language, although it would be very difficult to express ideas with it.

And you're correct about poems, but it'd be completely absurd to say you could pull meanings from an author of another (unknown) language's poems.

Hi, I'm sitting her writing some stuff but I'm wondering what you guys think about my stuff. Didn't know where else to post it.

God make that pain go away, let me live through today. I'f not tomorrow please don't take my baby away. God to you I pray.

They say dying is hard, but doesn't the bible say when you die you get to a better place?

When you feel like the life the good life you had is gone, remember yourself that a better life is just around the corner.
I'f pain was a currency I would be a billionare.

There isn't a word in the dictonary that describe what I feel right now.

Feelings can't be described in words only in action.

Ending life isn't the answer to a heart broken, rather find the things with
life that you love and fight yourself through the rough times with the thoughts
that a better life is waiting for you in the future.

I might told you that things between us didn't work, but that doesn't stop me from loving you.

When you told me that you didn't love me anymore, it felt like my whole life was falling apart.

Loosing you baby is the thing in life that wounded my heart the most.

When we got together I didn't just dedicate my time to you, I dedicated my soul.

The sight of the tears falling from your eyes makes my soul tearing itself slowly apart.

The love I got for you can't be described in words.

If you want to come back to me baby, I will be waiting here for you with all the love that I can give to you.


something like this:

God make that pain go away,
let me live through today.
I'f not tomorrow please, please
don't take my baby away.
God only knows Ive prayed.

I'f pain was a currency
I would be a billionare.
Ending life isn't the answer to a heart broken,
rather find the things with
life that you love
fight yourself through the rough times
with the thoughts
that a better life is waiting for you in the future.


Loosing you baby is the thing in life
that wounded my heart the most.
When we got together
I didn't just dedicate my time to you,
I dedicated my soul.
The sight of the tears falling from your eyes
makes my soul tearing itself slowly apart.


And so on, you need an editor and a spliff...
