Scar

He left a card and a bar of soap with 
scrubbing brush next to a note,
That said “use these down to your bones”.
And before I knew I had shiny skin and
it felt easy being clean like him,
I thought “this one knows better than I do”

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle
He tried to cut me so I’d fit

And doesn’t that sound familiar?
Doesn’t that hit too close to home?
Doesn’t that make you shiver; the way things could’ve gone?
And doesn’t it feel peculiar that everyone wants a little more.
So that I do remember to never go that far,

Could you leave me with a scar ah-ah?

So the next one came with a bag of treats,
She smelled like sugar and spoke like the sea
She told me don’t, trust them trust me.
Then she pulled at my stitches one by one,
Looked at my insides clicking her tongue,

And said “This will all have to come undone”.

A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle,
She tried to blunt me so I’d fit.

And doesn’t that sound familiar?
Doesn’t that hit too close to home?
Doesn’t that make you shiver;
the way things could have gone?
And doesn’t it feel peculiar, 
that everyone wants a little more?
So that I do remember to never go that far,
Could you leave me with a scar?

I think I realized just in time,
about my old self was hard to find.
You can bathe me in your finest wine but I’ll never give you mine.
‘Cos I’m a little bit tired of fearing that
I’ll be the bad fruit nobody buys,
Tell me, did you think we’d all dream the same?

And doesn’t that sound familiar?
Doesn’t that hit too close to home?
Doesn’t that make you shiver;
the way things could have gone?
And doesn’t it feel peculiar 
that everyone wants a little more?
so that I do remember to never go that far,
Could you leave me with a scar?
could you leave me with a scar? ah-ah-ah.

MISSY HIGGINS LYRICS

“Where I Stood” (Missy Higgins)

I don’t know what I’ve done
Or if I like what I’ve begun
But something told me to run
And honey you know me it’s all or none

There were sounds in my head
LIttle voices whispering
That I should go and this should end
Oh and I found myself listening

‘Cos I don’t know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

See I thought love was black and white
That it was wrong or it was right
But you ain’t leaving without a fight
And I think I am just as torn inside

‘Cos I don’t know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

And I won’t be far from where you are if ever you should call
You meant more to me than anyone I ever loved at all
But you taught me how to trust myself and so I say to you
This is what I have to do

‘Cos I don’t know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood
Oh, she who dares to stand where I stood

Scream of the world (poetic thought by George-B)

The world is made of noisy silence-
a silence all so worldly-
Within the wavy textured void-
the padded silence-
Resides the deafening-silent-

From Wikipedia: Right to education


The right to education is a universal entitlement to education, a right that is recognized as a human right. According to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights the right to education includes the right to free, compulsory primary education for all,[1] an obligation to develop secondary education accessible to all, in particular by the progressive introduction of free secondary education,[2] as well as an obligation to develop equitable access to higher education, ideally by the progressive introduction of free higher education.[3] The right to education also includes a responsibility to provide basic education for individuals who have not completed primary education. In addition to these access to education provisions, the right to education encompasses the obligation to rule out discrimination at all levels of the educational system, to set minimum standards and to improve quality of education.[4]

Compulsory education 

The realisation of the right to education on a national level may be achieved through compulsory education, or more specifically free compulsory primary education, as stated in both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.[5][23]

DEADLY NEW CORONAVIRUS CAPABLE OF PASSING FROM PERSON TO PERSON


 

CoronavirusDeadly New Coronavirus Capable of Passing from Person to Person

The hospital roommate of a man infected with novel coronavirus (NCoV)—a SARS-related virus first identified last year and already linked to 18 deaths—has contracted the illness himself, intensifying concerns about the virus’s ability to spread from person to person. Thus far, the human-to-human transmission of this virus has been somewhat limited, but given the ease of global travel today, it has managed to spread from the Middle East, where it was first detected, to Germany, the UK, and France. The World Health Organization is therefore advising public health officials to remain vigilant in evaluating and tracking cases of severe acute respiratory infectionMore…Discuss
