For years this soul has scarred itself raw
For internal wisdom and a mind in a war
Personal triumph to personal lost
The selling of morals for the price of their cost
These arts of mine wrecked from personal flames
There’s nothing to lose, though nothing to gain
For these Stories of mine fall on deaf ears
Personal trauma, hopes and the fears
A baring of soul is not needed these days
For there’s more to this world than personal pain
so burn it away and cast it aside
For we all live short on limited time
Cleanse yourself clean before a mental decease
The weight of our baggage makes us crawl on our knees
So leave this behind for it burdens the soul
Nothing is necessary, that’s all one need know
Feel the removal of desire and shame
It’s the key to rebirth in a world slightly sane
We are what we are and our being must breathe
So I leave this behind and start something clean
“A biker’s power and intimidating image can even the playing field for a little kid who has been hurt. If the man who hurt this little girl calls or drives by, or even if she is just scared, another nightmare, the bikers will ride over and stand guard all night.
If she is afraid to go to school, they will take her and watch until she’s safely inside.
And if she has to testify against her abuser in court, they will go, too, walking with her to the witness stand and taking over the first row of seats.”
During one such testimony, a little boy sat on the stand, testifying against his abusive father, who sat less than 10 feet away.
“Why didn’t you say anything before now?” Asked the prosecutor.
“I was scared.” The little boy replied, honestly.
“Why aren’t you scared now, what changed?” The prosecutor watched the little boy closely as he pointed to the front row of seats in the court room.
“Because my friends are scarier than he is.”
shit like this makes me have faith in humanity again.
Always reblog. ALWAYS.
This comic accurately sums up my feelings towards those who complain about The Hawkeye Initiative.
look, I am a huge David Willis fan. He is funny, brilliant, and bang on the mark.
But this? This is the single best and most important comic he has ever done and I am going to keep reblogging it until people stop making the argument in the first panel.
I will never get tired of this
I think I need to print this out and keep it in my pocket.
