Wonders of the World

It’s not about whether your gay, bi, straight, or lesbian.
It’s about appreciating someone’s beauty & flaws, inside & out regardless of their gender.
The human race is a pretty beautiful miracle in our universe.
Why bind yourself to only half of its wonders?

Tug & Pull

A heart can only handle so much tug and pull,
But we all love to have that attention from whoever comes through to you,
So We look for it,
We feen for it,
We search from person to person,
To find that connection,
We want that attention,
That specific affection,
No matter what situations we put ourselves in,
Go to the ends of the Earth to make it happen,
But you should know,
At the end of the day,
Your left with yourself,
This fact is always left a secret,
A secret from ourselves,
Or better yet,
A denial to ourselves,
so all we hear is,
“Yeah girl i’ll be with you forever”
or
“Yeah boy i’ll be with you forever”
And you cherish this promise they hold over you,
Like there is no end to it,
A promise is solid & definite.
Right?
But what if all that trust you put in with them just changes,
And they drop you like not a fuck was lost,
What if the love of your life doesn’t see you as the love of THEIR life,
What happens then?
Yeah you can talk to as many people as you want,
Trying to fill the void,
But speak truthfully,
It only takes a moment for it to empty again,
And your hopelessly,
Hopelessly in love with the idea that THIS person might be it
Even with your logic screaming don’t do it.
And it’s you controlling the reins to your heart
Tugging left
Pulling right
But who are you to let everyone beat it up like its in a fight
A fight to find Mister or Misses right
Just stop going for whatever is there
Don’t settle for another tug
Don’t break for another pull
Because a heart can only handle so much tug and pull
And you know the only one who suffer’s is you and only you.

Aside

Just to clarify something.

I do NOT need to be made or defined into one of your labels.

Made or defined into what you think I should be, am scared to be or what I’m pretending to be.

Frankly, you don’t have any idea how I see a PERSON in my eyes

How I view

How I feel

When I see something or anything.

So no.

You can’t LABEL me as a fake or as needing me to BE something just because of your insecurities.

From the beginning i never really wanted to label myself, but family and friends we’re confused so I had to give them the best answer I could at the time.

“Family and friends, I am bisexual”

But see, because so many people (mostly girls) have turned “bisexuality” into a one night thing or several drunken nights kissing random girls or your best friend or maybe even farther than that, no one really takes being bisexual seriously anymore. They say it’s just a phase or your just experimenting or you just looking for attention.

Judgements.

That’s all the world knows what to do when they see something different and it’s actually pretty sad. But i cannot hate everyone for doing it because it was how we were taught to think as children. What a surprise, society in America isn’t such a great place to grow up after all even if it’s “getting better”. Sure. We’re still born into such small-minded creatures, so ignorant of “the big picture” There’s more worries in the world about people wanting same-sex marriage and inter-racial couples (yes this is still a big problem) than actual problems, like say world hunger or how about something that hits more to home like children in our country, yes America, they are homeless and hungry.

But sadly, the biggest news since this new year has been this:

How ignorant can people be. #ignorant this just got me so πŸ˜ πŸ˜’ #stupid just because he supports gay marriage he’s gay now? #gay  (Taken with instagram)

No Barack Obama isn’t gay. Unfortunately, him supporting gay marriage (which is amazing in my opinion) was the biggest talk of every news station, news paper, and comedy gag since the new year has started. Some say he “came out” until now on his stand in same-sex marriage to get more votes from the youth (I mean why not, it’s a great strategy). But think about it, even if it was for the votes, there is so much that comes with this responsibility to be the first president to support it.

I once saw this magazine cover as foul, ignorant and such a shot at the president, calling him gay just because he supports it. But as a human, I too made a mistake and made judgements. The article pertaining to the cover actually praised the president for finally making a stand and becoming one of the few powerful voices that the LBGT community actually have. The rainbow halo representing an angel to this community. Poetic.

But anyways,

Back to my rant,

The reason why i bring this up is because my mind has not been able to fathom why people think like this. I’m going to focus more on this labeling issue, because in my previous relationship, I felt like the core issue led to this in every single argument. Basically she hated men to the core, and me having previous relationships with men, she was so set on me leaving her for a man and that it was the worst thing I could ever do to her. Turn off and a half. I did not lie about my attraction to guys and I never really did lie to be honest. It was how I felt in the moment and in the moment I always said

“I’ve always been attracted to girls since i was little, I was just to scared to act on it. I’ve tried with guys and I can never get that emotional attachment to them, so don’t be intimidated when I say I’m attracted to men.”

All of this was true. I did try dating many times with guys and even relationships, either the guy was totally wrong or perfect but I wasn’t ready.The only thing that has changed since then is this feeling of restriction. Why is it one or the other? Why does it always have to be heterosexual or homosexual. The one thing i praise about myself is to have grown to have such an open mind. I have learned to use my observational personality to always observe and analyze people and situations. Always a listener. Upon this, I try to learn about a person through and through, and only until then I can set my opinion about them in my head. If I don’t have the time to fully meet them, then I have nothing to say about them. Simple as that, I despise gossip.

So her judgements on me even after our relationship ended, really did tick me off. Not because I still want her or anything of the sort, but because SO many people have this ideology.

Labels. Labels keep our world in order. Labels of sexuality, brand, race, nationality; Just to keep the world going round in an organized fashion. But just like in fashion, there are the Gucci, Louis and Prada’s and the Payless, Tello’s and Walmart’s. Just like in race, in America, the whites are the “majority” and what are the rest called? oh yeah “the minority”. So I know where I stand in the pedestal of sexuality.

I’m not gay

I’m not lesbian

I’m not straight

I’m not bisexual

I’m not transsexual

Just let your small minds think past all of that and just accept the reality. You don’t need to label me. So simple. But I know this is asking too much and people of this generation always want answers and quick! I am one of those people. When I can’t think of an answer or reason I “Google it”. We’re all guilty of doing it but in this little aspect, I hope people slightly open their eyes that it is not needed. So like I said, I hate labels, but I know I can’t avoid them. So as I went though this relationship, I really wanted to find a better answer for her other than bisexual because it is such an over used label and has a bad reputation for just being into girls for a night.

So I “Google’d it” lol and I found something pretty promising:

Pansexuality, or omnisexuality[1] is a sexual orientation characterized by the potential for aesthetic attraction, romantic love, or sexual desire for people, regardless of their gender identity or biological sex. Thus, pansexuality includes potential attraction to people who do not fit into the gender binary of male/female. Some pansexuals suggest that they are gender-blind; that gender and sex are insignificant or irrelevant in determining whether they will be sexually attracted to others.[2]

The word pansexual is derived from the Greek prefix pan-, meaning “all”. In its simplest form, pansexuality denotes the potential of sexual attraction to all genders. It is intended to negate the idea of two genders (as expressed by bi-).

What I love about this ‘label” is that it doesn’t restrict my attraction to one or the other or has a bad rep. It’s real and is exactly how I feel. I am gender-blind. The way I am is I fall in love or lust with their personality.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,

and in my eye,

I don’t see any boundaries.

So I guess if I have to live in this world of labels, this is the only one I can withstand.

Labels

God didn’t make labels. Man did. God didn’t make boundaries. Man did.

I think people in general are just beautiful.
No matter what sex, race, shape or form.
If I’m attracted to you, I am.
Why put a label on attraction.
The way love happens, just happens. It’s a force between two souls, two persons.
An imaginary tug between two beings that simply cannot be cut, hidden, or destroyed.
Not by a fraction
Why ruin such a thing?
Why label it as anything and everything when it is just love.
And if it is love, then is shall be.
Right?
.. No.

Love is defined as a shared attraction between man and woman.
Not literally in those words
but in the unwritten rule’s,
the ‘in between the lines’,
the normality of society…
But man made this standard of society, not God…
And although I don’t know much of the man,
God gave us the power to love;
Hand in hand,
Something so sacred, so beautiful, so endless.

& Love knows no boundaries,
but man still makes them,
I just wish there was no standard to live up to.
No fear of rejection.
So it could have been easy to say,
I love her
just as it’s easy to say
I love him.
Wishful thinking I guessin’.

But seriously?
Can’t everyone just accept we were made from and by love
and will keep being made…
Made from love, not hate or fear.
Love never fails
It is proven everyday
And it must be accepted
In any form
Because God made man to love one another
And race or sex cant stand as a boundary any longer.

Live

Sometimes you want something so badly, you’ll do anything; be anything to make it happen. But that’s wrong. You just have to sit back and follow the path God is making for you, right at this moment, because being anything but you and forcing 2 things to co-exist won’t get you want you want especially in peace… And sooner or later you will realize that. Let life happen to you, don’t pause it, rearrange it and let it pass by, live it!

Let Me Try / Handle On Life

I’ve came to the conclusion
I no longer need these illusions
Time no longer matters, it’s a state of confusion
What I do here and now is my state
Your opinion no longer matters, at this rate
What I do is my matter, i don’t need your “for god’s sake”
Do this or that, it’s a wrap
Came to talk? Bro don’t attack
I know what my life has become
I don’t need mirrors surrounding me
I see within myself everyday
And bro it’s scary
I need change, but change is scary
Day by day I get weary
Do I really wanna fight the battle within me?
Break the walls of defeat
Build my ego, inches and feet
Stack ’em up ’til I’m ready to go.. Go.
But where’s my confidence at?
Bro push me to succeed and confidence shall lead.
one good deed ends to another
My life ends here and out comes another
resurrected, built 10 times harder
And I’m here to stay, no falling out
I come to find my path, no following out
Through the forests I’ll find my own way out
So just let me be
I got this, you see?
Just let me.

Saved

Sometimes you run into someone in life who comes out of no where.
When your at your last thought, last feeling, last anything.
When nothing seems worth living for.
It could be family, a lover, or a friend. All 3 are just a blessing.
But to have a friend there as your second family, and to comfort you when no one else can understand is amazing.
Especially when you know their presence in your life changed you dramatically and altered your future forever.
They came at the right place and time.
They gained your trust as you did theirs.
Little by little memories are made.
And somehow you can’t see yourself having the time of your life without them.
They give you courage to be you.
They accept you as you are.
Little by little a friendship grew as did a blessing.
Because anyone who loves you for you is a blessing right?
Actually the fact that they give you one more reason to even be.
To even live.
To save your life.
That’s a blessing right there.
My best friend is a blessing.

The Monsters Behind Me

And with a bit of luck,
I can shed light from the shadows,
keep calm without paranoia,
Move forward with positive thinking..

For If I look back,
I will see my own monsters clawing at me,
I will have betrayed my luck.

I must not look back.
I must not look back.
I must not look back.

Take It

I’m not giving up.
Although life may slip up.
I’ve got you on my mind, mind shut.
I can live through the empty cuts.
No luck, but I still crack its lock.
I got that good luck.
Stuffs hitting me like a truck.
But I can handle it.
Stuffs just getting more serious.
But I take it as just a little bit.
Take life easy so I spend my days with an open mitt.
Ready to catch all that bogus shit. Trust me it ain’t easy, but be blessed with the life you have, just take it.

Relief

Relief, feels so good
Weights lifted off, heals so good
Knowing you’ll be okay or at least you should
No looking back,but only if you could
Living in the past, hoping it won’t last
Now your free, no coming back
Just moving forward, even if you feel bad
Don’t feel for others, just you, be glad
You have another day, a new reason to smile
You don’t have to say, keep ’em guessing another mile
But then you get that call, dreading it for a while
Needed, pleaded for this to be an empty file
Nothing to be said, the call said it all
Just another day, where I felt the assault
No hope, no feelings just a big migraine
Can’t see no lights, sensitive with eye strain
Just wanna relive the relief I felt even if I ain’t sane
Hoping for the next, waiting with no regret
Thinking you’ll be here, even if you ain’t the best
Your the best I ever had, and I can’t think farther than that
If I wasn’t insane, I’d know, flat
waiting for you is the worst regret I ever had, true facts
