Colors Of The Wind Lyrics
You think I'm an ignorant savage
And you've been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don't know
You don't know
You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name
You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew, you never knew
Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun sweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends
How high will the sycamore grow
If you cut it down, then you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the Earth and still
All you'll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the…...

Colors

...I enjoy color, whether it is my crisp clothes or the blinking light of my alarm clock. Like some grand accomplishment of constructing an Academy Awards outfit, I stare in awe at my closet, my source of pride. “Okay, school-bus yellow is darker than lemon yellow,” I tell myself as I meticulously rearrange my color-coordinated clothes. As I look at my variegated shirt selection, I revel in my need for joyous color and expression. Because, you see, my everyday life is colorless, gray - dark and full of challenges. Catching the bus at 6:35 (nope, no car for me) and helping my mom (single parent at that) cook, budget, and pinch pennies - these are the realities of life. It’s not unfair, but it’s hard nonetheless. I make the best of it in my search for color, my search for illustration, my search for self. Taking a look at my closet, which is essentially a reflection of my chirpy persona, one would notice that I own few solid shirts. That would be boring - the antithesis of everything I represent. I need vibrancy; I need sizzle; I need dimension. Plaids, stripes, and eye-boggling outfits fulfill this yearning. Each color contributes to my message. Although most guys would be frightened to wear one, I’m not afraid to sport a salmon-pink rugby shirt or a rich Tyrian purple T-shirt. Because my father was never around and I didn’t have the whole father-son experience with football and no-girls-allowed playhouses, my colorful world has taken a new hue. So, while the “big game” is......

Colors

...My preferred color is blue. This color is known to be spiritual, insightful, patient and accepting. This color has a very nurturing side and is very Intune with other people and what they are feeling instead of what they are saying. I would describe this color as being gifted with connecting with people on a deeper level. Many people that are creative with vivid imaginations are most likely blue. This color is a true romantic and follow their heart. I would say I fit in this color in every aspect of its characteristics. I do everything I can to avoid conflicts. I don’t like to argue or debate at all. I’m very creative and love to talk with people. I have a big circle of friends and I value those relationships as well as the ones with my family. I tend to be the peacemaker in difficult situations. I think Blue has great qualities and a few that can be challenging. For example if you can use the good characteristics such as: empathy, sensitivity, accepting and be sympathetic when talking and listening to people this is an excellent quality to have. I think most people would be more likely to confide in you and ask you for help with issues as you won’t react in a negative, judgmental way to their issues. The negative effects of the color blue is the non-confrontational view. Sometimes there needs to be a debate in order to solve a problem. It’s part of the process to finding a resolution. I see myself learning to accept the debating process however it’s not natural to me at......

Gone with the Wind

...Gone With the Wind ENG 225 Gone With the Wind Gone with the Wind is a movie its own rarity. It is one of the few movies that has stood the test of time and remains a classic that cannot be compared to some of today’s movies. I doubt the screenplay writer, Sidney Howard, producer, David O. Selznick, and director, Victor Fleming knew what timeless piece of history they were creating when this movie completed. This masterpiece of film has had an impact on viewers ever since it was created and will have for many more. The movie was nominated for numerous awards at the 1939 Academy Awards even though it wasn’t released until January 1940. The movie ran away with eight of those nominations, winning Supporting Actress, Actress, Director, Screenplay, Color Cinematography, Art Direction, Editing, and Best Picture (Ten Films that Shook the World). It has been said that if the income for the movie was adjusted for inflation, it would be the most successful movie of all time. The films begins with the chronicling of the splendor of the Old South. We watch how it is reduced to crumbs by the Civil War and the how the New South rebuilds itself during the reconstruction. The final results makes one wonder if the Auteur Theory applies to this film which says that the director is the one with the overall films artistic merit. The characters are living their lives in a very simple way until everything is shattered by the Civil War. None of the characters expected the......

Color Blind or Color Brave

...Color Blind or Color Brave? Carrie Rawdan SS236-05 Professor Burnett February, 24th, 2015 The story of Mellody Hobson “Color blind or Color brave” is a powerful speech about the reality of current day racism. She choose to share her brilliant ideas and life experiences by giving a speech on TED. Her stories of racism and her triumph of becoming one of two black woman running a fortune 500 company are intriguing. Mellody Hobson delivers a powerful speech that touches the heart and encourages the mind to decide if we are Color blind or Color brave”. “TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages” (TED, 2014). This is an amazing opportunity for people to share their views, life experience, and intelligence in a global community setting. Mellody Hobson, the chairwoman for DreamWorks, started her speech on TED with a full audience. She spoke of a story supporting a friend at a predominantly white meeting and was mistaken for the kitchen help. “This experience made her ask herself and friend, is this a good enough reason why we need more racial diversity in the U.S Senate” (Hobson Mellody, 2014)? The daughter of a single mother and five other siblings, Mellody said she was taught at a very young age the realness of the world from her mother. One day after a birthday party, Mellody’s mother did not ask the normal......

Explicit Lyrics

...Explicit Lyrics With a Meaning Censoring explicit lyrics from young people is a debatable decision. In some ways, it can be beneficial due to the harsh and inappropriate content, and in other ways, it could be bad to censor explicit lyrics because they could send out a powerful and meaningful message. Explicit lyrics should not be banned or censored from young people because they could send out content that means something to that person and/or to their history, or that it could mean something for an entire community or culture. Lyrics found in rap music can help someone understand and sympathize with what the rapper is feeling. If people were to stop focusing on the negatives of rap music and start looking at the positives, they would have better respect towards rap music all in all. Some songs give out so much meaning that could influence a child to feel something towards that song and relate it to their own life and act upon their life as if it is being described in the song they listen to. Explicit lyrics have been around for many years and have given out a message to those who can feel exactly what the rapper is feeling. Even though rap music with explicit lyrics have had been given a bad reputation in society, “raps popularity can be useful in opening adolescents up to being more expressive” (Wiley 1). Parents are trying to understand the concept of explicit lyrics and how they can be beneficial for their child, but in reality, they’re only paying attention to the...

...issues that need to be brought to light are done so through lyrics. “When I was in third grade I thought I was gay, ‘cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight,” Macklemore and Ryan Lewis tackled a hot topic with “Same Love” (Macklemore Lyrics "Same Love" with Ryan Lewis Featuring Mary Lambert). Homophobia is part of mainstream hip-hop and rap music. The song touches on stereotypes, politics, religion, and the social stigma of being gay. It was also the anthem for change in Washington State’s Referendum 74, legalization of same-sex marriage (Headlee). The first time I heard “Same Love” I was driving to work, it tells the story of a child confused about his sexuality at a young age because of stereotyping. It continues to touch on politics, religion, cyberbullying, and about speaking up. By the time Mary Lambert begins the chorus, “and I can’t change, even if I try, even if I wanted to, (Macklemore Lyrics "Same Love" with Ryan Lewis Featuring Mary Lambert)” tears were rolling down my face and I forced myself to pull over and get my emotions under control. The lyrics were so powerful, but maybe I’m biased. Awareness is a small step in the right direction, but miles yet to go. The Politics and Religion “The right wing conservatives think it’s a decision, and you can be cured some treatment and religion, man-made rewiring of a predisposition…America the brave still fears what we don’t know” (Macklemore Lyrics "Same Love" with Ryan Lewis Featuring Mary......

Very happily, they all may not be beautiful, or perfect, but they are the story of my life and my beliefs, and who I am. Next time you see someone with tattoos, don’t judge them or guess you know their lifestyle. Ask about them, and the answer you get might be a surprise to you! I don’t go around judging people that have gotten some horrible hair color, put in, or someone that has just received some Botox lip injections, which is no better than a person with a sleeve full of tattoos.
