Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you beautiful people! 💖

This year was well interesting... as I previously talked about on here I was really struggling earlier this year and had been for some time though I can say the last 4 months has been better than the last 2 1/2 years which I'm grateful for, it still is one day and step at a time though it is better. I can say after that and going back to study it has made me really really passionate about equality on all levels and learning more and more about the world and to continue to be a part of, fight and stand up for this. What I know to be true for me and what has continued to be true and strengthen through this time as I've been moving through the pain that, that storm brought is the importance of being ourselves, self expression, self love and acceptance for who people are.

If you're ever in environment, around people and/or put into a situation that doesn't align with your truth as painful, uncertain and impossible as it may seem... leave. In my case it took so many crappy situations and an absolutely last straw to do so, with so many dead end attempts of trying to move on along the way. It might not be easy and smooth sailing in the moment to pluck up the courage and leave and for sometime afterwards as you deal with the distress, uncertainty and fear though as Oprah and Ellen talk about "No matter the cost at the time as long as you stay true to exactly who you are you will be rewarded in ways you can't imagine". I found a great deal of comfort in this and I too in my heart believe good and fulfilling things will indeed eventually come out of being true and living out our authentic selves. It's ultimately essential to our happiness, our ability to express ourselves, to show up fully in life, to live out our purpose and to have meaning and connection. I deeply needed this message and many more of it's kind during my struggles and I hope it gives comfort, courage and hope to you all in some form.

I haven't been super active on here and the blogging world as a whole due to study and needing some time to myself and time to reflect and learn. Just popping in with blogging at random like this without a schedule will most likely continue as it's a great way to share, be creative and connect but takes the pressure to post and "keep up with content" away, I'm tossing that notion in the trash. The odd YouTube video may arise though for now I've retired that idea too. 

Hope you all have safe and loving holidays! If you wish to share about your year down below I would love to read!

With hope and love
Rainbow :) xoxo

Girl On Fire/The Hunger Games Victor Hair!


Who wants to play a game?
Well we all don’t get a choice anyway
Born into poverty and inequality
Exploited and controlled
At the hands of The Capitol
Fashionable as they finely dine and turn a blind eye
While we Districts 1-12 struggle to stay alive
And have any form of a meaningful life
In case we ever thought of putting a toe out of line
President Snow makes sure to keep us brutally denied
Punishment for past rebellion
With a lottery of children
Each year with a compelling broadcast
Of who will outlast
In an arena full of unpredictable forces
With sponsors needed for valuable resources
Let’s play a game, Effie pulls a name...
Screaming in a horrified state
I won’t let this be my sister's fate
So I take her place
Let’s play a game, Effie pulls another name...
Peeta Mellark!...
In stark terror coming forth
I look at you and you at me
And I realise I’ve seen you before...
At the back of the bakery door...
As Effie poshly roars...
“May the odds be ever in your favour!”

You say take my hand tonight, take it tonight
So we can stand united in this alliance in an act of defiance
It may just be for show but I think we both know
How this is gonna go
Bread boy you wanted me long ago
And secretly well I...
Well I can tell you what’s real and what’s not
Even when you’re nuts and think you’re a mutt
A symbol of hope and rebellion
Boy I think we’ve got this sussed
Bread boy, oh bread boy
Take my hand to tonight, take it tonight
In a stance of this alliance
As we act in defiance and refuse to be silenced!

I’ll step right up and be my destiny
Girl on fire, three fingers high
Just you watch, watch me do this
Hey hey, you want a spectacle?
So you say, say it ain’t so Mr President Snow
Wait and watch us over throw
You old psychotic foul foe
Girl on fire, three fingers high
Now just you watch, watch me blow apart
Your precious sadistic venomous arena
Hey, hey, say it can’t be so, hey, hey, see I told you so
Cause the one thing you can’t deny
Is the fire inside that never dies
Girl on fire, three fingers high

Rebel, rebel with a cause
Here to rip apart your bullshit need for such a clause
Thrill of entertainment out of segregation, deprivation and annihilation
Inhuman, totally fuckin’ insane and not okay!
Rebels, rebels with a cause
Here we unite and fight
For our god damn basic human rights
Cheers Plutarch Heavensbee
Freeing us from the prospect of
The hanging tree
Stranger things did happen here
No stranger would it be
Gaining strength underground
Is where we can be found
Side by side
Here and unified

I’ll step right up and be my destiny
Girl on fire, three fingers high
Just you watch, watch me do this
Hey hey, you want a spectacle?
So you say, say it ain’t so Mr President Snow
Wait and watch us over throw
You old psychotic foul foe
Girl on fire, three fingers high
Now just you watch, watch me blow apart
Your precious sadistic venomous arena
Hey, hey, say it can’t be so, hey, hey, see I told you so
Cause the one thing you can’t deny
Is the fire inside that never dies
Girl on fire, three fingers high

Systematic rebelliously
Against the one true contorted enemy
Power and control
Deserving of the death penalty
Lead by President Coin, here in District 13
Who has a dislike for me or so I believe
Deceiving I can see, ruthlessly she can be
Selfishly she gleams and clearly ain’t here for the team
Too bad she needs me, got no say
Since I’m Miss Mockingjay...

I’ll step right up and be my destiny
Girl on fire, three fingers high
Just you watch, watch me do this
Hey hey, you want a spectacle?
So you say, say it ain’t so Mr President Snow
Wait and watch us over throw
You old psychotic foul foe
Girl on fire, three fingers high
Now just you watch, watch me blow apart
Your precious sadistic venomous arena
Hey, hey, say it can’t be so, hey, hey, see I told you so
Cause the one thing you can’t deny
Is the fire inside that never dies
Girl on fire, three fingers high

Mr President Snow you ain’t nothing but an asshole
So come at us with your arsenal
Star squad coming at you and taking over
In a 1...2 and 1...2...3...4!
Kicking down the doors
Breaking through the walls
Raiding and invading
While brutally losing teammates crusading
I’ll go at it alone
To put an end to this war zone
Then with a drop of ammo
That explodes
Killing my sister Primrose
Calculated by another ego
Still we overthrow
Though I know
That I won’t let what YOU dear did go...
Execution day arrives
Say hello to your demise
Bow held high
Arrow ready to fly
I aim and shoot as
True as my heart is pure
Killing the one
That would’ve carried it all on
While birthing a riot destroying
The man who thought
We would never actually overcome
...But what have I just done?...

Take me far away from this crowd
Hold my hand and fast forward me
Twenty years from now
Make this all okay I beg you somehow...
Hold me now and fast forward me
Twenty years somehow...

In the meadow
I look at you
You at me and I know
Ohhh, ohhh
Oh how I know
That I’m utterly in love with you Peeta Mellark
Forever and always my heart will be yours
Though someday our babies will come to understand
Just what their parents fought for and
The price they paid at the hands of war
So they will never grow up in
Or get called to be a pawn
In those god awful laws and the things we saw
While keeping alive inside the ones that have died
Who never really got to truly live a life
Tonight I close my eyes and hold on so very tight
Primrose, Finnick, Rue oh precious Rue, Boggs and sweet Cinna
This is a dedication to all of you
And a sign of inspiration
To those in need of hope
After all hope is the only thing stronger than fear
I never ever forget to tell myself that
Amongst the nightmares

With hope and love
Rainbow :) xoxo
