  • Words that touched U

    hi girls... anyone got any favourite or meaningful phrases, poems, terms or words to share?

    i got this one from life! article where terminally ill children share their views at a camp found by actor Paul Newman, maybe some of you have read this before. >>

    <The Way You Change Things> - Adam Jed
    If I am alone
    There is clear and empty Black Sky
    If I am with you,
    I see blinking, shining, beautiful Stars in my heart
    When I am alone
    In the forest
    I see only woods
    But when I am with you, I see nature
    Last night you looked like a dancing violet in the wind.

    Ain't it beautiful?
    This poem can be found in I Will Sing Life: Voices From The Hole In The Wall Gang camp.

    Hi, so far I haven't thought of anything touching yet but I can't help commenting that i felt this was really touching. So simple yet beautiful (in a meloncholic way), it's written by someone who's terminally ill? I'm just wondering who is this "you" in the poem.

    dancingviolet, now i know where u got yr nickname from, thought it was really nice.

      heehee, revealing the source of my nick... vantastica, the U, i think is the people who's walking and accompany Adam (the author) through his illness journey..he's one of The Hole In the Wall Gang camp's kids or counsellors. I'm not too sure whether he's ill though but i guess so from the poem.

      Here's another one from Jason Oreult,

      I wish there was a bird from God
      And got me well
      Lay its wings on me
      And got me well.

      ------------------------------------

      Here's something from the movie Trainspotting's poster:

      Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family.
      Choose a fxxking big television,choose washing machines,cars,
      compact disc players and electrical tin openers.
      Choose good health, low-cholesterol and dental insurance.
      Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments.
      Choose a starter home. Choose your friends.
      Choose leisurewear and matching lugguage.
      Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fxxking fabrics.
      Choose DIY and wondering who the fxxk you are on a Sunday morning.
      Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-mumbling, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fxxking junk food into your mouth.
      Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fxxked up brats you spawned yo replace yourself.
      CHOOSE YOUR FUTURE.
      CHOOSE LIFE.
      -----------------------------------------------

      well, something from british story-tellers and movie makers.. they got the F word all over the place. :Doh:

      here's somthing gentler, heehee....

      BE GLAD of LIFE because it gives you the chance to LOVE and to work and to play and to look up at the STARS!

        Love the trainspotting quote.
        Interesting movie - rather philosophical actually...
        Would have loved it if I could understand the Scottish/Irish (not sure which) accent.

        The following lyrics are from a Simon & Garfunkel song. I knew abt it from my English Lit class in JC & loved the lyrics so much that I wrote them on a huge mahjong paper & stuck them on my bedroom wall.

        The lyrics are sad. So you'd expect a sad sounding song. I was so shocked when I heard the song. It's such a happy/cheerful song...thus it magnifies the sadness that the lyrics hold.

        ================================================== ========
        I AM A ROCK - Simon & Garfunkel

        A winter?s day
        In a deep and dark december;
        I am alone,
        Gazing from my window to the streets below
        On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
        I am a rock,
        I am an island.
        I?ve built walls,
        A fortress deep and mighty,
        That none may penetrate.
        I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
        It?s laughter and it?s loving I disdain.
        I am a rock,
        I am an island.

        Don?t talk of love,
        But I?ve heard the words before;
        It?s sleeping in my memory.
        I won?t disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
        If I never loved I never would have cried.
        I am a rock,
        I am an island.

        I have my books
        And my poetry to protect me;
        I am shielded in my armor,
        Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
        I touch no one and no one touches me.
        I am a rock,
        I am an island.

        And a rock feels no pain;
        And an island never cries.

            Love is real, real is love
            Love is feeling, feeling love
            Love is wanting to be loved

            Love is touch, touch is love
            Love is reaching, reaching love
            Love is asking to be loved

            Love is you
            You and me
            Love is knowing
            We can be

            Love is free, free is love
            Love is living, living love
            Love is needing to be loved
            - 'Love' by John Lennon

            Notice how the lyrics are written..the ending of each line sort of replicate the beginning. Beautiful and simple. He's such a genius.

              Yah, John Lennon did a really beautiful job on Love..sweet..

              If anyone listen to Jolin Tsai's latest album, J-Game, her latest hit "Tian Kong" Sky was really nice too. The words are so sad and touching.

                        A little silly here...but I was once very touched by the lyrics of this song - Not Pretty Enough.

                        The chorus goes something like this:
                        Am I not pretty enough?
                        Is my heart too broken?
                        Do I cry too much?
                        Am I too outspoken?
                        Don't I make you laugh?
                        Or should I try harder?
                        Why did you see right through me?

                        It was describing exactly how I felt towards a guy I like. Perhaps that's why I was so moved by the song.

                          oh, Witchery.... i know how you felt at that time...

                          Here's one I read in a magazine yesterday about missing a person
                          ------------------------------------------------------------

                          Don't be sad,
                          I'm in a snowflake.
                          I'm in the rays of sun.
                          I'm in the sparklings of stars,

                          Meaning that even if that person you misses most is not with you or no longer around, they will always stay in your heart and always in your memory..
