"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."

☽    ☾
"the body counts are written in the paper
like the ink press printed them
straight into my arms
like they soaked straight into my blood stream
because a number doesn’t scream for its dead mother in the wake of the night
and a number doesn’t wonder why it wasn’t him instead of her
numbers don’t stay in love with people who can’t speak for themselves anymore
numbers print emotionless thought into the minds of those who were not affected
the people who dance to the gravesites of the statistics
shake their heads and bury their guilt
they are those who count the bodies and not the souls”
