//In which I address my saviour complex// When I first heard the story of Cinderella,
I didn't dream of living the life of a rags-to-riches princess
Nor did I dream of being a charismatic Prince Charming
But my curious little brain harboured an unlikely investment in Fairy Godmother-
I would marvel at her ability to make carriages out of pumpkins
And save the damsel in distress
Without wearing the ceremonial badge of honour.
And when I'd watch Harry Potter movies
My cousins would sit in awe whenever Harry or Hermoine would cast the most ingenious spells
But I would root for Dobby, the elf, the most-
When he'd appear out of nowhere to save his friend
So vehemently, as if his life depended on it.
I would gawk awestruck as his nibble hands would take on powerful enchantresses
Without fearing the inevitability of his own death.
This unlikely relatability to characters
Harbouring the desire to mend broken people
Slowly started to creep out of the fictionalised world of fairies and elves
And started playing out right in front of me.
At school, I was friends with only the nobodies of the class-
Foolishly thinking that my own inadequacy will make them feel whole.
And when the tough guys would narrate their sob-stories
I’d let my lanky arms engulf their broad shoulders
Not realising when my arms would be made to feel parts of their body
Which bore no relation to their soul.
When I’d come home with broken spectacle frames,
My dad would be surprised at the frequency with which his son picks fights
Not realizing that his lanky son was foolish enough to think that
His flimsy spectacles could endure the wrath of two warring sides
Which his son would try to pacify.
You see, for a long time
The only saving I ever needed
Was also the saving I never got.
So I internalized the hollowness inside me
And normalised giving parts of me away to intriguing, broken souls. (continued in the comments)
“If life were a picnic, you’d be a family. Since life is war, you’re soldiers.You’d do well to start accepting that fact.” What happens to the dream deferred? Does it explode?
Two time travelers from the deep future who would do anything to assure the horrors of their past never come to be. But what happens when the crucial moment that determines both outcomes is a flip of the same coin?Does Hope Summers live or die?
Bishop, a future cop hailing from the year 2077, came back in time to stop the traitor from betraying Xavier’s Dream.Only to discover that same traitor was Charles Xavier himself.
Cable is far more convoluted.Born from a cloned mother in the present, taken 2000 years into the future by his sister who had previously come back to present, only to be raised by his parents who were brought to the future.Then returning back to the past chasing his own evil clone. His entire life devoted to the defeat of Apocalypse- whom he was actually responsible for granting his power in the ancient past.
And now that same Apocalypse is just a kid. Innocent, naive, teachable- full of potential outcomes.The Six Second War, Days of Future Past, Ages of Apocalypse? None of these have happened yet. There’s still time to set things right.
The trouble with being a time traveler is everything becomes hypothetical and expendable apart from the desired singularly. You stop seeing people as people, rather they become mere phantoms that may or may not exist in the time stream as it was altered. Schrodinger’s collateral damage. The time paradox of correcting the dark future in which you were born should be blinking you out of existence. However, these two have managed to stick around. Meaning either the future is a fixed point in time or they are men out of time.
They say you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. If these two are past their prime- Perhaps they’re an object lesson, if the past is set in stone and the future is out of our hands then the only thing you can hope to change... is yourself.

I am no son of God,
I am the son of an immigrant
To everyone who said I looked like Jesus, here ya go 😂
A dopey smile like this is only ever the result of a serious day sesh.
I may regret some things now... like spending an hour talking to a homeless man called Tony about how I can get to know all the homeless people in Brighton and help them all #messiahcomplex
but this smile says it all.
One of my favourite days with some of my favourite people. #loveyouTony

- "We need a hero. Couragous sacrificing people, setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero, people line up for 'em, cheer for them, scream their names, and years later tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who told them to hold on a second longer. I believe theres a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble. And finally gets us to die with pride. Even though sometimes we have to be steady and give up the thing we want most, even our dreams." 📷 @mykey2lyfe

Here's the thing about enjoying the process.
It could be fitness, it could be business, it could be anything that involves a path from A to B.
If you listen to enough experts in that field, sooner or later, someone will tell you that you need to enjoy the process. If you don't hear it, maaaaybe find new third-party mentors.
It gets a little muddled though. Enjoying the process because the process leads to the finish line isn't enjoying the process. That's will power. Important! But not sustainable.
Adopting habits you hate because it's what someone else does and you can't wait until you reach your goals so you can stop those habits isn't enjoying the process.
Enjoying the process is feeling satisfaction, even contentment, in the daily, autopilot actions that may OR MAY NOT lead to where you want to go. The things you'd be fine doing even if it led nowhere.
Would you fast 16 hours regardless of your abs because of the way it makes you feel? Would you eat every two hours if you always looked the same? Would you lift heavy weights or run for miles because you enjoy it?
For myself, I'd probably always end up right here, sipping down human jet fuel that makes baristas triple check my order to sit and write for an hour before picking up my favorite little man in the world.
Don't aim for the finish line. Identify the finish line, then make the HABITS your goal. OH THE PLACES YOU WILL GO.
🗣 "I have lived."
The man who has sufficient power over himself to wait until his nature has recovered its even balance is the truly wise man, but such beings are seldom met with.
Thence, I suppose, my natural disposition to make fresh acquaintances, and to break with them so readily, although always for a good reason, and never through mere fickleness.
I leave to others the decision as to the good or evil tendencies of my character, but such as it is it shines upon my countenance, and there it can easily be detected by any physiognomist.
For my future I have no concern, and as a true philosopher, I never would have any, for I know not what it may be: as a Christian, on the other hand, faith must believe without discussion, and the stronger it is, the more it keeps silent.” #WWJD #JCSwirlGod

Hope Summers aka The Mutant Messiah, Phoenix, and White Phoenix of the Crown
One of the best books I have read in a long time. Resonates with my impressions on what is wrong with the idea of doing good means these days and why I am skeptical of any act towards bringing mass prosperity. It cuts right through the pretense, mass hallucination and the delusional fake charade of ‘saving the world’ or ‘helping others for greater good’ that everyone has these days, corporate moguls and ordinary folks alike. It sheds light on the fundamental flaw in the thought process behind doing good and philanthropy. Believe it or not, society is not getting any better.

We are witnessing the mental meltdown of a global leader. He believes the world will suffer if he is punished for his myriad crimes. He’s even attempting to stoke global white fear about trumped up allegations in South Africa. His level of self-absorption & arrogance is called a #MessiahComplex
. The economy was chugging along, in spite of a now exposed racist segment of Americans (businesses; investors; voters, Congress members; etc.), who wanted the Black president to fail. He is dangerous for America and its global standing. We should all call on Congress to act on this public spectacle. Capitol Hill switchboard:,202-224-3121
