Remembering the victims of Pulse, Orlando

our pulse skipped a beat today

“Peace and love among all those souls, who roam this planet, called Earth” Gun Roswell

For Pulse, Orlando

What a world we live in
When feeling comfortable in your own skin
Is frowned upon by others
Leaving your heart smothered

Love, peace and happiness
We all strive for nothing less
May that be a lesson for us all
Young, old and very small

Lyrics:

Childlike Faith In Childhood’s End
Existence is a stage on which we pass, a
sleep-walk trick for mind and heart:
it’s hopeless, I know,
but onward I must go
and try to make a start
at seeing something more than day-to-day
survival chased by final death.

If I believed this the sum
of the life to which we’ve come
I wouldn’t waste my breath.
Somehow, there must be more.
There was a time when more was felt than
known, but now, entrenched inside…
