Shakespeare’s Sonnet 62

Sin of self-love possesseth all mine eye
And all my soul and all my every part;
And for this sin there is no remedy,
It is so grounded inward in my heart.
Methinks no face so gracious is as mine,
No shape so true, no truth of such account;
And for myself mine own worth do define,
As I all other in all worths surmount.
But when my glass shows me myself indeed,
Beated and chopp’d with tann’d antiquity,
Mine own self-love quite contrary I read;
Self so self-loving were iniquity.
‘Tis thee, myself, that for myself I praise,
Painting my age with beauty of thy days.

Lyrics to a Song: Skeleton Key (In Progress)

These lyrics were written by a blossoming artist who is just getting started. She hasn’t written much but these are the lyrics to the first song that she is doing right now. What are your thoughts and what instrument would you have with them?

 

Skeleton Key
By: Rosalia

“Everywhere I go,

and everything I see,

you’re always there with me.

You’re my skeleton key,

so why can’t I be yours?”

Song Quote Revival!

So I’ve been a wee bit busy settling into a new job and getting all ready for college. Sorry about the lack of posts, but I can finally get the ball rolling again! To “revive” my blog (to a point) here’s a song that I’ve been finding inspiration from for a while.

You Learn

By: Alanis Morissette

Album: Jagged Little Pill

I recommend, getting your heart trampled on to anyone.
I recommend, walking around naked in your living room.
Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill);
It feels so good (swimming in your stomach)
Wait until the dust settles.

You live, you learn.
You love, you learn.
You cry, you learn.
You lose, you learn.
You bleed, you learn.
You scream, you learn.

I recommend, biting off more then you can chew to anyone
I certainly do.
I recommend, sticking your foot in your mouth at any time
Feel free.
Throw it down (the caution blocks you from the wind);
Hold it up (to the rays)
You wait and see when the smoke clears.

You live, you learn.
You love, you learn.
You cry, you learn.
You lose, you learn.
You bleed, you learn.
You scream, you learn.

Wear it out (the way a three-year-old would do).
Melt it down (you’re gonna have to eventually anyway)
The fire trucks are coming up around the bend;

You live, you learn.
You love, you learn.
You cry, you learn.
You lose, you learn.
You bleed, you learn.
You scream, you learn.

You grieve, you learn.
You choke, you learn.
You laugh, you learn.
You choose, you learn.
You pray, you learn.
You ask, you learn.
You live, you learn.

Here’s the music video for it so you can here what it sounds like, too. 🙂

 

Cleansing

With the rain comes cleansing,

Cleansing brings a fresh start.

A fresh start brings peace.

 

Peace of Mind.

Peace to the Heart.

Tranquility to the Soul.

 

Rejoice! Rejoice!

A Riddle for You

Let me be the answer to your frail truth, let me take your hand and become peace, let me summon you peacefully, with a startling rise, let me take care of you in any form of mine. I am used by many, and used by none, yet ready to serve the old and the young. Meloncholy suits me, and nothing can erode me, as we all are to eventually become one. What am I?

Answer: Death

**The number of question marks is the number of letters in the answer.**

The Good Night

Well one was red and the other white, and then the Rea went off to bed.

Where she fell to sleep and had a dream.

Will her prince join thee?

Who knows!

Who knows!

Off to bed the little angel went.

Sleep tight Dark Prince,

The demon of the night and the vampire of the blood.

Good night!

Good night…

Truth

Everything changed,
I just knew it would.

But how can you know the truth,
when there is no light to show it?

That’s simple, said the man.
You just follow your heart.
And the truth will come at you,

Probably with a two-by-four.

The Wander’s Question

There’s no curtain call,

And there’s no point in life at all.

If each day ends,

and this bent heart of mine cannot heal.

I can’t see a darn thing.

But could it be that the gray clouds,

That I loved,

Completely blinded me?

Mother, Hide

Splash. Splash. Splash.

Hear the soldiers march.

 

Wush. Wush. Wush.

The rain pours down.

Knock. Knock. Knock.

Someone’s at the door.

 

Sniff. Sniff. Sniff.

The Mother cries alone.

Tink. Tink. Tink.

Glass falls to the floor.

 

Scream. Scream. Scream.

The Mother tries to run.

Crash. Crash. Crash.

The door is broken down.

 

Rip. Rip. Rip.

Hear the silk rip.

Rip. Rip. Rip.

The Mother’s gown is gone.

 

Drip. Drip. Drip.

The Mother starts to die.

Drip. Drip. Drip.

Her Children watch and cry.

 

Pitter-pat. Pitter-pat.

Her Children run to hide.

Stomp. Stomp. Stomp.

The soldiers move on.

 

Shh. Shh. Shh.

Don’t make a sound.

Shh. Shh. Shh.

Death is coming near.

Shh. Shh. Shh.

Hear the Silence?

 

Shh. Shh. Shh.

Drip. Drip. Drip…

 

I wrote this while reading my history book about some of the wars in Europe and all over the world. This is what happened when inspiration struck.
