Halfway There


Hello people!

I am happy to announce that I've now completed more than half of my service (exactly half, actually), which is a great milestone. There are still 82 days left however, and I suspect they will be full of experiences that'll break me...

I have no time to waste on writing blogs in the very limited spare days I get, but I wrote a poem about my experiences in the military that you can read if you so wish :/
It's more like lyrics actually, and I even wrote a melody for it. Naturally I, with my horrible singing, would never upload such a version, so you're stuck with the text. It's unusually good text for being written by me though ;)




The Kindergarten for Young Adults


First you come from a place
where you may keep your face
and your thoughts are your own
'cause you're not just a clone

Then it's taken from you
to be thrown in the loo
all you know starts anew
but you hope you'll pull through

While you gain many friends
you might just lose yourself
you're just one of the pack
as you walk the same track

Rarely is something so behind
it's as if everyone is blind
values are so different
while people are indifferent
They gather from all around
wherever from they might be found
they learn some useless discipline
and nothing's to be feminine

Everyting has to be the same
you're always the one to blame
wait to hurry and hurry to wait
there's punishment if you are late

We're all scared of the same foe
that's why we must play this show
no matter what is your role
with it you'll just have to roll

Though sometimes you may be broken
some people find weird pride in it
just to bear some meaningless token
miles you walk trying to keep up your spirit

Rarely is something so behind
it's as if everyone is blind
values are so different 
while people are indifferent
They gather from all around
wherever from they might be found
they learn some useless discipline
and nothing's to be feminine

Though some people sure are nice
it's hard to say if it's worth the price
freedom sure costs quite a lot
why give it up to stay and rot?

When you don't get any sleep,
barely anything to eat
you may almost feel like crying
although nobody is dying

They say that it is optional
no need to get emotional
you had your choice now stick with it
there's no real use, so why quit?

Rarely is something so behind
it's as if everyone is blind
values are so different
while people are indifferent
They gather from all around
wherever from they might be found
they learn some useless discipline
and nothing's to be feminine

It's a place that's full of fools
there are even more dumb rules
You wish you could just lie and wait
not have to bear so much weight

To survive is the main endeavour
luckily it's not forever
if you do your best and try
eventually you'll say "goodbye!"

Yet I can't wait for it all to be over
to be able to take a real shower
washing all that dirt away
never will I ever stay.




There's so much more I could write if I wanted to, but a song has to end somewhere, has it not?

That's all for now. If you'd wish to listen to music I've made, you should be able to find some here.
Like the very first composition I've ever made, for example :p



Have a good time, you few readers, as I'm sure I won't have one! :'D
