about

Will donate ALL of the proceeds to www.doctorswithoutborders.org

They send surgeons/doctors into warring countries and help out every victim of war they can. Kids, women, and civilians that aren't a part of any war that are caught in the middle and need medical attention. Sometimes the hospitals are overcrowded and they also have clinics that are set up from the ground up to help in however they can with the resources they have.

This is a second draft of a poem I continue to develop to give perspective to the concept of war/violence and how we can end it. Today. Now.

I am not "anti" war, I am pro peace.
Pro understanding
Pro dialogue
Pro collaboration
Pro remembering we die on both sides of war
Pro loving all people
Pro working through conflict with other effective means
Pro being firm in goals but bendable in solutions
Pro knowing my way isn't the only way/best way
Pro learning and evolving my way of thinking about war/life/culture
Pro finding peace
Pro universal love

Much respect and thank you for reading.

about

Sean Hill Los Angeles, California

Spread myself like peanut butter
jamming out in the heart
pierce dark with light in
no one wins in a fight
so I love both sides
confront challenges with understanding
no I because "I" got here through we
so when I say "I"
know I mean "you"
are beautiful. Every way
Easy to say, easy to know
every show so much love
you are what dreams dream of =D

Track Name: Supernova Battle Cry
War

is inspirational

proudly patriotic
necessary


until you find out

how mothers

have the best battle cries

when a sun dies

not enough of him
left to ship home

a blackhole
created in parents
hearts

believing war
is necessary
to bring peace

is thinking
drowning
necessary
to breathe air

we teach our children
to solve problems
and misunderstandings
through dialogue
compromise
the sacrifice
of pride

but as adults
we send the same children
to wars
we built them weapons
to fight for
ideals we all
don't
really
believe
in
a last resort?
No other way?
Self defense?
Freedom?
This is just how it is?

the greatest untold battles
have been fought in our hearts
and minds and not taking the time
to truly apply a new solution
has become a tired tale
we no longer fall asleep to

we have practiced more patience
to hate ourselves in war
than develop love for someone else
which we can change
like rearranging our priorities
of which book we want to read first
from off our shelves:

the Book of Last Resorts
is better to read if we plan vacations

the Book of No Other Way
is really a lazy read for not trying harder

the Book of Self Defense
has been more of a stubborn belief
that our life is more important than another
because “they” have a different culture
we don't fully understand and this book
is not based on a true story historically

I see the last book we often read
the Book of Freedom
…this old shelf holding this old story…
we thought these were self help books
but in fact they turned out to be self
hurt,
establishing freedom
by killing in wars
is arranged marriage thinking
hoping what we put in place
is the best for both parties
without hardly knowing
who and what they want
within
we can begin
to stop these wars

A war can't be fought
if there are no soldiers

on either side

when soldiers decide
is it better to live for their ideals
than die for their country
who made the same ideals
so dying for their country
is in fact hurting their country
by taking away their precious life
fracturing their lovely family
minusing a father or mother
sister brother all the same
in the name of “honor”
but not
in integrity
to know why you fight
to know the history of who we are
find out what it means
before the end of this book
to know what it is
to be only human

we can choose
to help our human leaders
who make mistakes
like the rest of us
figure things out
by standing down
sitting down
and enjoying a show together

make some art
that will heal wounds
so much sooner
than making new ones
believe me
it works.
I've seen it
heard it, felt it
read it
the works of people
war torn who mend themselves
in the silence and peace
of reading, understanding poetry
peace on a canvas
peace on that big screen
peace in creating a theater scene
peace in writing a story
peace in making laughter
peace in making peace inside
putting together pieces
that we thought we could hide
with bombs and bullets
thought we could stuff good intentions
inside ammunition
but really inside us
inside all of us
that believe in war

there is a bomb
we
can dismantle

there is a bullet
we
don't need to fire

there is a fire
we
don't ever need to set

I don't know
exactly what will happen
if we push reset

but I do know
it will be the best step
towards the direction of love
real love for each other
and ourselves
real self reflection
of the complaints we are tired
of saying
and realistic world peace
that will be ours
for the making

and finally

put an end
to creating black holes
in hearts

we can start keeping our suns

burning their light lovely fully

alive

Track Name: Only Human
I’m Only Human

~

I'm

only

human

I'm

only

infinite.


I'm only connected
to a collective consciousness
of an entire species
who thrives to exist

I'm only connected to a source
known and unknown
that is forever,
creates and answers us
is mysterious and all loving

I'm only human.

I'm only a single part of a whole

I'm only a single universe of atoms

I'm only DNA directly affected
culminating to the current
combination of chromosomes,
testosterone, estrogen,
H2O and more

I'm only human
having a consciousness
as large as my imagination
creating illusions
as real as blueprints
to buildings until manifested
as constructed concepts
made tangible

My imagination
is impossibly
perfect

Designed to envision
I have visions
that can give me stress
or give me alternate scenarios to test
while calling my body to react
like imagining drowning
could make me short of breath
while the image of myself in bed
with a love that has the self confidence
of a lion with the heart of a penguin
could make my heart skip a beat, a lung,
or a decade

I'm only human.

With a capacity to love
that can make each breath I take
feel like it matters
and to make matters worse
it makes it feel like I matter
to someone else
with a wealth inside
that feels like diamonds
died compared to a feeling
of bliss from a kiss that was free
to give
to receive
honestly

Human

from pangea to now
we are one
with determination
discipline
and infinite gifts
to confront our grief,
ignorance & suffering
to completely face
the worst in ourselves
throughout our history
and still see through any misery
beyond bending reality
confidently connecting new synapses
creating new habits
to progress and change
to process and remain
together
unified
to keep going on as lovingly
as possible through all
previous obstacles



It seems like

being human

is the best thing

we could ever

say

we are

Track Name: Non Violent War
Will donate ALL of the proceeds to www.doctorswithoutborders.org

From the website:

"Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971.

Today, MSF provides independent, impartial assistance in more than 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need. MSF also reserves the right to speak out to bring attention to neglected crises, challenge inadequacies or abuse of the aid system, and to advocate for improved medical treatments and protocols."

I've read articles about them and sometimes the hospitals are simply overcrowded in the country they visit, so they will set up a small mini hospital/clinic from the ground up to help in however they can with the resources they have.

This is a second draft of a poem I continue to develop to give fresh perspective to the concept of war/violence and how we can begin a new era of acceptance, solutions, peace, and co-existence that works. Today. Now.

I am not "anti" war, I am pro peace.
Pro understanding
Pro dialogue
Pro collaboration
Pro remembering we die on both sides of war
Pro loving all people
Pro working through conflict with other effective means
Pro being firm in goals but bendable in solutions
Pro knowing my way isn't the only way/best way
Pro learning and evolving my way of thinking about war/life/culture
Pro finding peace
Pro universal love

Much respect and thank you for reading/listening/purchasing/being.
