Death that need not have been I feel the loneliness after death, Death that need not have been– I hear the screech of brakes, And see the muddy shoes removed, Lying beside the still form, The too-quick boy, Covered with hempen bags, Flies gathering.

Nationalism is a topic that has to linger in someone’s mind at least once in a while. Of course, everyone loves their country, therefore everyone has a sense of nationalism inside them.

I don’t really think about moral values all too much because I think that it’s something that is extremely subjective to the individual. Although, I always feel an obligation to voice my opinion every time that I hear someone talk about their moral values, especially when it’s not the same as mine.

For me, I have always had what I felt like are the basics of human rights, which are: freedom ofContinue reading “human Made”
Yosa Buson was a Japanese poet in the Edo period of Japan. Although he wrote countless of poems, there was one in particular that stood out to me. However, I could not find the poem’s name, but it reads: 白梅に 明くるよばかりと なりにけり. Ha. You have no idea what it means, don’t you. But wait! Don’tContinue reading “YoDa BuSoN”
