The Terms

Bluejean Songster

He gets all the credit

She gets all the blame

He gets to keep his pride

She gets to live in shame

He gets all the assets

She gets all the debt

Her sins are not forgiven

His we must forget

He gets to keep his freedom

He gets all the glory

She gets to be his servant

She must not tell her story

He gets to keep his privacy

He gets to be the boss

She is under scrutiny

She must accept the loss

He gets to have his fun

She gets to clean up shit

She must not object

Or complain a little bit

He gets to name the terms

He gets to say it’s so

Does anybody wonder

Why she might want to go?

NORTH (a poem)

Katie Kay

yesterday i headed up
the coast, my body
suspended in air.
it was the trick
of a Lycoming engine
that kept me up there.
and as i went north,
each mile gone by,
i wondered if you
were in the sky
but i don’t know:
not anymore.


Today’s poem is one written while falling asleep. What? Yes. You read this correctly. Today has been a very long day, composed of four hours of class, a three-hour flight, and a constant hungry stomach whining at me. So before I pass out for twelve hours, I wrote this little poem for Day 14.

Truth be told, I’m not in the mood to analyze right now, so I’m not going to. But I just want to say thank you guys as always for going on this journey with me, and I apologize if my material…

Importance Of Play

Savvy Raj

‘It’s a happy talent to know how to play’ Emerson

Importance of play

 Playfulness creates  a reason to live

 It makes you alive to life

 It  keeps you agile and motivated

 It is an all round  fitness  for all.

 Age and gender no matter

 Play is important to life and living.

 It has many expressions

 Whether it is wordplay

In humour and wit

Whether it is laughter that eases tension

Or  good old moves from dancing in the free flow.

Play is a natural action

that creates well being

Play up to life.

Make life feel like play

Before life plays you!

Unwanted thoughts


I don’t think of you, but my mind does sometimes, and it kills me that you’re not by my side. Nights we spent cozied up together are now silenced by the oceans between us. You drifted away, and I’ve been drowning ever since.

I bow down to my heart as I stare at the blank ceiling. Laying bare, waiting for a tomorrow that never comes.


Stuck between the past and the future,
this moment dissolves from existence.
It cannot survive these reminiscences.

Two people, only one feeling, still,
we face away from one another.
How are you the only person I see?

Good things do come from heartbreak;
I lost myself in you to find my faith,
closed my eyes and gave up to fate.

I know that when I’m dead and buried deep, my regrets will accompany me.
Yet, I chose to regret my decisions every day.
