“The place where he was born and raised”

Nowhere man

Has got no home

But he’s got a song

That he sings along

While he works real hard

Trying to build his own.

 

Nowhere man

Has got the same shoes on

That he wore the day

When he walked a ton

Going step by step

Down the core of this song.

 

Nowhere man

Dreamer man

Tired soul man

 Believer man

Nowhere man

One day you’ll be home

 

Nowhere man

With the same few coins

Waiting for the day

When he’ll be someone

Knowing in his heart

Change is soon to come

 

Nowhere man

Row that boat up some

Won’t always dive the stones

Sailing in the Storm

But in the maddest day

The boat shall still lead home.

 

Nowhere man

Dreamer man

Tired soul man

 Believer man

Nowhere man

One day you’ll belong.

 

Oh home

One day you’ll be home. Oh home.

Don’t let the wish move in a circle…

Recently I ran into a sign I consider disturbing.
To me, it is living proof for what is wrong with our world.

The pink chalk is not very clear…
it says:
“Chris loves Rainbows and Ponies”



Alright… Lets break it down…
Hopefully you realize that this sign is not applauding the fact that Chris likes rainbows and ponies…
In fact, it is purposefully making fun of him for liking those things.
Now, I will assume that Chris is not a cocky person and he does not know why he gets so much prejudice from people simply because of the things he likes.
The important thing is that Chris should be proud of the fact that he is ahead of the game, simply because of the fact that he believes on himself. Regardless of the “negativity” of those around him, he has concluded not to fall into the regular human mistake…Prejudice…


Chris therefore should show the world that his beliefs can be real no matter if they are considered “real” of “fantastical”.


If we don’t believe in ourselves then how the heck are we supposed to be happy????


One of our major goals should be to find our “home”, then for the rest of our life, do everything possible to make sure our home does not become “what everyone tells you your home should be”…


In conclusion… Chris is being made fun of on the sign above… But if you pay attention, He is smiling.
Because he is happy. Because he believes on himself.


I will leave you with some sketches…

I need what I have

Don’t know how to explain how I feel… So, I sketched.

Close your eyes and imagine this….

Welcome to a world full of black eye shadow and leopard lipstick. The evil on her gown comes over our bodies as we kneel down and get high on piano and voice. She is staring around and looking over her shoulder as she feels this presence over her. She is stepping over their heads and you cannot stop admiring the endless details. Flowing chiffon, chains hanging from her arms and realistic plastic hairpieces. All of the sudden she has rope in her hands that she is using to tie her mouth. She pulls her hair! Can’t find any air! Monster hands! Monster hands!…

Although her struggle is still there and there are many things she wishes she knew the answer to; she wishes to have been able to try out the different routes. Now she is haunted. All she has now is a Victor and Rolf dress, which she holds on to as she is packed up on glitter. She grabs onto the ruffles and wipes away the mascara tears. At this point the music is loud and the city seems to be the loudest it has ever been. She looks down. The wind sweeps her hair delicately and all you see are the feather lashes. She grabs her head with her hands and what is unseen is now clear.
