demanding r.e.s.p.e.c.t.

one of my favourite songs ever is 'it's only me (the wizard of magicand)' by barenaked ladies, and in this song, amongst the many lyrics that give life to meaning (and in some cases meanings to life) is the following excerpt:

"(they) say you'll never love another,
'til you love yourself, well brother,
i'm in love with everyone i see".

in a world where apathy and fatalism is becoming a subliminal trend, where we seek ourselves and find nothing but, i think it is an important message to live and re-live. though the selfishness of it all contradicts with the basic ideology which i preach, wherein the greater good is of greatest import, sometimes you just have to look out for number one.

and this sentiment applies especially well when it comes to handing out love - you really can't give what you don't have, and to have lots of love there's no place better to start than that closest to home. if you've ever seen those people from 'free hugs' sometime back, you should know what i mean.
i guess, this explains why those who are so loathsome, so dark and disgraced cannot love and be loved. yeap, i'm talking to you - cheer up, emo kid.
