Epilogue

 

On Christmas day, when you hopefully spend time with your loved ones, when you feel stuffed with all the yummy food you have had and maybe slightly tipsy thanks to the nice wine and liqueur you have enjoyed, please appreciate what you have and who is in your life…and maybe give a little thought to the rest of the world, and in particular those who aren’t so lucky as you. 

I know I will be missing a few people on the day, and the thought is tough, but I will be spending Christmas where I feel I belong this year, in Africa. I don’t know what will happen on the day, but I am hoping to get involved at the local orphanage. I would love nothing more than spend Christmas day surrounded by children.

There comes a time when we heed a certain call 
When the world must come together as one 
There are people dying 
And its time to lend a hand to life 
The greatest gift of all 

We can’t go on pretending day by day 
That someone, will soon make a change 
We are all a part of Gods great big family 
And the truth, you know, 
Love is all we need 

[Chorus] 
We are the world, we are the children 
We are the ones who make a brighter day 
So lets start giving 
There’s a choice we’re making 
We’re saving our own lives 
Its true we’ll make a better day 
Just you and me 

Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares 
And their lives will be stronger and free 
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread 
So we all must lend a helping hand 

[Chorus] 

When you’re down and out, there seems no hope at all 
But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall well well well well 
Let us realize that a change can only come 
When we stand together as one

And maybe review where you are in your life and decide whether 2014 will be the year you change and take action.

Whether long-range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether soaraway Sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct
You coulda Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction

My dad came into my room holding his hat
I knew he was leaving,
He sat on my bed told me some facts.
Son, I have a duty, calling on me
You and your sister be brave my little soldier
And don’t forget all I told ya
You’re the mister of the house now remember this
And when you wake up in the morning give ya momma a kiss
Then I had to say goodbye
In the morning woke momma with a kiss on each eyelid,
Even though I’m only a kid
Certain things can’t be hid
Momma grabbed me
Held me like I was made of gold
But left her inner stories untold
I said, momma it will be alright
When daddy comes home, tonight

[CHORUS]
Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction

We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction (x3)

[CHORUS]
Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction

We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction (x3)

My story stops here, let’s be clear,
This scenario is happening everywhere.
And you ain’t going to nirvana or far-vana,
you’re coming right back here to live out your karma.
With even more drama than previously, seriously.
Just how many centuries have we been
waiting for someone else to make us free?
And we refuse to see
that people overseas suffer just like we:
Bad leadership and ego’s unfettered and free
Who feed on the people they’re supposed to lead
I don’t need good people to pray and wait
For the lord to make it all straight.
There’s only now, do it right.
‘Cos I don’t want your daddy, leaving home tonight

[CHORUS]
Whether Halliburton Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction

We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction

——————————————————————————————————-

TOGETHER, we can make a difference.

“We Come 1”

All the subtle flavors of my life
Are become bitter seeds
And poisoned leaves
Without you

You represent what’s true
I drain the color from the sky
And turn blue
Without you

These arms lack a purpose
Flapping like a humming-bird
I’m nervous ’cause
I’m the left eye
You’re the right

Would it not be madness to fight
We come 1

In you the song which rights my wrongs
In you the fullness of living
The power to begin again
From right now, in you

We come 1

I’m unafraid
Never never scared
Worries washed
Pressed air
I am the left eye
You’re the right
Would it not be madness to fight

We come 1

Changing yourself can be a tough process…all you need though is faith in yourself, face who you have been, realise you cannot be perfect, open your heart and you will see how amazing you are. You won’t need to be “screaming under your skin” anymore.

Dido :
How can I change the world if I can’t even change myself ?
I cannot change the way I am ?
I don’t know, I don’t know.

Maxi Jazz :
I wanna take a look at the world behind these eyes,
Every nook, every cranny reorganise,
Realise my face don’t fit the way I feel.
What’s real ?
I need a mirror to check my face is in place,
Incase of upheaval, fundamental movement below,
What’s really going on I wanna know,
But yo, we don’t show on the outside, so slide.
Just below my skin I’m screaming…

I need a mirror for my spirit,
Yeah, can you feel it ?
When I get deep, wanna hear myself sleep,
Not drowning, just tumbling around and around in the voices
Like a crowd in my head so loud,
I wonder what it’s like to be dead,
I hope it’s quiet, noise in my head like a riot,
Any remedy you have for me I’ll try it.
Just below my skin I’m screaming…

I’m going deep, so deep that I can’t sleep,
The pills ain’t cheap but the bills are steep,
So I lick up with a booze and a spliff,
Try to snooze,
But who’s dreaming, I ain’t, this is win or lose,
Put down the drink, try not to think,
Let it go, fundamental movement below,
And yo, reality is dreaming,
Just below my skin I’m screaming…

Faithless is one of my all time favourite groups, unfortunately I heard on Friday that the chap has lost his way big time, thanks to the drugs. I hope he wakes up and pulls through.

Anyway, to finish, I wanted to remind the world something….

  1. Thought I’d better update on my Christmas day – did sweet F.A. in the end, in one of most beautiful places on Earth and loved every minute of it 🙂

  2. It does sound like you are having a tough time, emotionally as well as financially, but hang in there, you know it will get better.

    As spoke about before, these difficult days allow us to enjoy the good times that much more, having suffered through and come out on top.

    Have faith that you have an important mission for being here, and don’t believe that you have nothing to live for. It will be closed apparent in time. Meanwhile, enjoy the time you have available to adapt to your diagnosis and read for pleasure as well as for learning. I’d like to suggest the book, “who moved my cheese?” by Spencer Johnson.

    Stay strong and keep growing, ma copine. I know you disowned me, but you can’t stop me from caring about you.
