🎶 There’s a battle ahead. Many battles are lost, but you’ll never see the end of the road while you’re traveling with me. 🎶📸

🎶 Won’t you be the new one? Burn to shine. I take the blue ones every time. Walk me down your broken line. All you have to do is cry.🎶

🎶 Oh there’s an emptiness inside her And she’d do anything to fill it in. And though it’s red blood bleeding from her now, it’s more like cold blue ice in her heart🎶

🎶 Is this the age of the thunder and rage Can you feel the ground move ‘round your feet🎶

🎶 You see everything/ You see every part/ You see all my light/ And you love my dark/ You dig everything/ Of which I’m ashamed/ There’s not anything to which you can’t relate/ And you’re still here🎶

🎶 Life doesn’t discriminate Between the sinners and the saints It take and it takes and it takes And we keep living anyway We rise and we fall and we break We fall and we make our mistakes And if there’s a reason I’m still alive When do many have died Then I’m willin’ to wait for it.🎶

🎶 Why do you write like you’re running out of time? Write day and night like you’re running out of time? Everyday you fight like you’re running out of time. Keep on fighting in the meantime (Non-stop!)🎶

🎶Ooh Child, Things are going to get easier. Ooh Child, Things are going to get brighter.🎶

Two face-to-face classes down. Two virtual classes to go on our first day back.

To all my sisters and brothers busting their asses to make this work despite minimal pay, micromanaging admin, frustrated students, and angry parents: Thank You.

You are ensuring our future.

🎶Now everybody’s taking about this new decade, Like you say the magic numbers then just say goodbye to the stupid mistakes you made. Oh my memory, serves me far too well.🎶

I’ve been driving around with the kid, and I’ve seen several accidents. Please drive a bit more carefully. At each accident, I’ve seen multiple officers working the scenes. Out of about 15, exactly one was wearing a mask in a crowd. If you insist on compliance, model it.

“When historians pick up their pens to write the story of the 21st century, let them say that it was your generation who laid down the heavy burdens of hate at last and that peace finally triumphed over violence, aggression and war.”

🎶 But my silent fears have gripped me Long before I reach the phone Long before my tongue has tripped me Must I always be alone 🎶
