August's Rhapsody - Mark Mancina

The dawn is breaking
The tree burst it's buds
The warriors unsheathe their swords
Are we awake?

The noon is high
The flowers bloom at their might
The warriors are charging
Are we striving?

The dusk is setting
The tree is shedding
The warriors are at victory
Are we packing?

The stars are high
The tree is dying
The warriors are resting
Are we satisfied?
Or are we still at the beginning?

Unusual You - Britney Spears

I might have a distinctive style of conversation with people that I'm close to. To these people, I'm a bit tad sarcastic and insulting, but it has always been in a joking way. People that I'm close to would release that I am rarely serious and even the more rare that I get angry. But somehow, I misjudged, that I ended up being wrong, being blamed and having to swallow my pride and apologize. Little did I know that I was subjected to gossip and rumors right behind my back just when I'm away. I've always try my best not to create confusion, let alone to offend. I tried my best in avoiding further disagreement and arguments, but when i retreat, I was attacked from behind. Offended, I still decided it is best to leave things as they were for there was no point of me lowering myself to being a child to fight. I also do not find the need to change the way I am, for that is who I am. I've always believed that when we are at fault, the most appropriate way is to apologize straight away and admit the fault. There's no use for giving a lot of excuses to justify what we have done because it will just fuel the anger. Be straight forward and don't beat around the bushes, hoping that the other party will accept your excuses. I've learned my lesson.

Run - Leona Lewis

Ever since I was small, my parents would always instill important facts of life in me. One of them was that the mouth is given to praise, but not to comment and complain. But somehow, the world is not like that for everyone. For some people, all they ever do is to gossip, bad-mouth, and ridicule others. To them, that is the way of life that has always been. If it comes from a person who is still a youth, I would think that they haven't been exposed enough, but if it comes from a person who is mature, I would think that they degrade themselves and that there's so point of us to fight head- to- head with them, for it would definitely degrade us as well. For the community to acknowledge that, and for no one to rectify the mistakes done, that proves that the misdeed has indeed beyond control. One can be so ignorant enough to ignore the reactions projected. But as an outsider, we can never know what they are thinking inside, or feeling inside. We can only do our best not to step in their paths and avoid facing them altogether.

Love Letter of Great Men and Women

Beethoven to his Immortal Beloved:
you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me -
never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved

ever thine
ever mine
ever ours

Catherine the Great to Prince Potemkin:
Can one love anyone else having known you?...
There's not a man in the world that can equal you.
I have given secret orders to my body- down to the last hair- to stop showing you the smallest
sign of love.
Oh Monsieur Potemkin!
What a trick have you plated to unbalance a mind previously thought to be one of the best in
