Random Shoe Post

i was actually really trying to stay away from the shoe post. but i jus couldnt resist. I'm just loving the Chanel Canvas Sneaker. If i were rich, these would be on my feet in 2.2 seconds.


The Philosopher

--This poem is truly speaking to my soul right about now. Just laying out my thoughts in a way that I could never do.

By : Edna St. Vincent Millay

And what are you that, wanting you,
I should be kept awake
As many nights as there are days
With weeping for your sake?
And what are you that, missing you,
As many days as crawl
I should be listening to the wind
And looking at the wall?
I know a man that's a braver man
And twenty men as kind,
And what are you, that you should be
The one man in my mind?

Yet women's ways are witless ways,
As any sage will tell, --
And what am I, that I should love
So wisely and so well?

Gotta love life...

By : me

Well damn
Just as I was getting over [it]
[It] came back
And said those things
That put me right back
In the place
That I hate!

By : Matthew Arnold

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For then the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

Come, as thou cam'st a thousand times
A messenger from radiant climes,
And smile on thy new world, and be
As kind to the others as to me!

Or, as thou never cam'st in sooth,
Come now, and let me dream it truth;
And part my hair, and kiss my brow,
And say: My love! why sufferest thou?

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For then the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

Expect Nothing

By : Alice Walker

Expect nothing. Live frugally
On surprise.
Become a stranger
To need of pity
Or, if compassion be freely
Given out
Take only enough
Stop short of urge to plead
Then purge away the need.
Wish for nothing larger
Than your own small heart
Or greater than a star;
Tame wild disappointment
With caress unmoved and cold
Make of it a parka
For your soul
Discover the reason why
So tiny human midget
Exists at all
So scared unwise
But expect nothing. Live frugally
On surprise.

Not What Was

This poem by Langston Hughes was the inspiration for this blog. As you will see i got the name for my blog from Mr. Hughes beautiful words.

By:Langston Hughes

"And the wild rose of the world
blooms to last so short a time
before its petals fall.
The air is music
and its melody a spiral
until it widens
beyond the tip of time
and is lost
to poetry and the rose --
belongs instead to vastness beyond form,
to universe that nothing can contain,
to unexplored space
which sends no answers back
to fill the vase unfilled
or spread in lines
upon another page --
that anyhow was never written
because the thought could not escape
the place in which it bloomed
before the rose had gone."

starting over

so. i started this blog a while back. i had decided that i wanted it to be a random blog about all the things that interest me. then i started neglecting it. now. i've decided to start posting again. however. ive also decided to change it up a bit. instead of jus random crap. im gonna give it a concrete theme.
because i love poetry sooo much. its going to revolve around that. also. because im so random and all over the place. im also going to focus a little bit on music and some fashion [but probably not as much].
all right. so here i go. hopefully this time i can keep up with it.....
