Poem: Heart & Brain

Heart balanced between strings,

fragile but beating strongly,

bleeding but brimming with fire,

life calling,

I answered the call,

there was no going back,

brain all over the place

but brain is focused,

love is perfection,

happiness is perfection,

I choose these things,

I choose living,

not obeying those rules

which destroy me

just to build someone else’s power,

I matter

and my heart and brain agree.

5 Videos To Watch This Week On YouTube!

Hi everyone! 🙂

Here are my five suggestions for next week in advance. Enjoy! 🙂

Social Issues

First up we have episode 33 in Crash Course’s brilliant Black American History series. In this episode Clint Smith talks about Brown V. Board and how discriminating the education system was towards black people. Clint discusses about how many schools preferred to shut down all together rather than let black children go to their schools and talks about how the discrimination affected black people mentally, emotionally and physically. It is a very interesting episode and Clint speaks about how even when decisions were starting to somewhat progress in practice it wasn’t always working and about how a lot of black people faced further discrimination because there was progress that a lot of white people didn’t like being made. An amazing watch.

Relaxation

Next we have a really relaxing video from ASMR Jas where there is a scalp and face massage to help you sleep and to ease your mind. Excellent.

Next here is a second video from ASMR Jas. It is one of Jas’ Pointless Inspection videos where your eyebrows are plucked, your ears are checked and your face is plucked to make it clear. Really relaxing.

Music

Next we have the music video for Oh My God by Adele. Really creative and well put together video and the song is amazing. Adele’s vocal on it is excellent.

Finally for today here is Panda’s road to the final on The Masked Singer UK. The video is by TALENTKINGHD. Panda won the series and was unveiled as Natalie Imbruglia.
