Into the Black

Into the Black
I bolt upward,
Thrown from the dream,
Where I see your smiling eyes.
I sit there,
In the repressing dark,
Of the room we used to share.
I stare off,
Into the black,
And my thoughts carry me back.
Back to a time,
Back when I held your face in my hands,
Back to a time when we smiled,
And planned for the future.
This is my future,
This dark room,
Alone with the dreams of what used to be.

A city of broken dreams,
Dreams of broken people,
They wander the streets,
Scavenging for a fix,
So many beautiful people,
My friends,
Wasting away with their demons,
Their talents to never be seen,
Dreams of broken people,
That will never come to pass.

...some days I really despise my significant other. He irritates me to no end. He's a spoiled rotten brat that uses his "tourettes" as an excuse for flipping out when he doesn't get his way. He acts likes he's going to hit all of us when he gets disturbed while doing something he wants to do. He even does it to our 2 month old son, like he knows better. I'm with a douchebag. I know.

Obama see's his race as an opprotunity

Mon Jan 19, 9:29 am ET
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President-elect Barack Obama, who avoided calling attention to race during the campaign, sees his race as an opportunity to bridge differences, The Washington Post reported on Monday.
Obama spoke in an interview last week about how his racial identity can unify and transform the United States, the newspaper said.
The son of a black Kenyan father and a white mother from Kansas, Obama will be inaugurated on Tuesday as the 44th U.S. president, and the first one to be an African American.
"There is an entire generation that will grow up taking for granted that the highest office in the land is filled by an African American," Obama said in the interview.
"I mean, that's a radical thing. It changes how black children look at themselves. It also changes how white children look at black children. And I wouldn't underestimate the force of that," Obama told the Post.
Beyond the historic symbolism of his inauguration, Obama hopes to use his presidency as an example of how people can bridge differences, the Post reported.
"What I hope to model is a way of interacting with people who aren't like you and don't agree with you that changes the temper of our politics," Obama was quoted as saying.
"And then part of that changes how we think about moving forward on race relations. Race relations becomes a subset of a larger problem in our society, which is we have a diverse, complicated society where people have a lot of different viewpoints," Obama said.

Just what the hell does that mean? "It also changes how white children look at black children." Last I knew the majority of kids didn't even realize that there was a difference. Kids are colorblind until taught differently. Ugh! What an ignorant thing to say.
