Lindsay Lohan’s creative juices were flowing on Instagram last night when she penned a poem about breaking up with her fiance and worrying about terrorism. She said she wishes she could change “idle ISIS minds.”
She was criticized in the comments and deleted it, but The Daily Mail captured a screen shot.
sometimes i hear the voice of the one i loved the most
but in this world we live in of terror
who i am to be the girl who is scared and hurt
when most things that happen i cannot explain
i try to understand
when i’m sitting in bed alone at 3am
so i can’t sleep, i roll over
i can’t think and my body becomes cold
i immediately feel older…..
then i realise, at least i am in a bed
i am still alive,
so what can really be said?
just go to bed and close the blinds,
still and so on, i cannot help but want to fix all of these idle isis minds because,
there has to be something i can figure out
rather than living in a world of fear and doubt
they now shoot, we used to shout.
if only i can keep trying to fix it all
i would keep the world living loving and smiling
i would share my smiles
and give too many kisses
Some of the comments she received were pretty harsh:
“You will never know the pain and suffering of even normal working class let alone victims of war.”
“This has been written by a privileged celeb that spends most of their time taking selfies and pampering themselves at the beach.”
I actually don’t think she deserved to be blasted for what she said, the sentiment seems sincere. Here is my interpretation:
She can’t sleep because she broke up with her fiance, she feels deep pain… But then she realizes, who am I to feel sorry for myself when people are suffering at the hands of terrorists?
Sure it was bizarre, and I’ve never really been one to defend Lindsay Lohan, but she seems to feel compassion and she did spend time visiting refugees in Turkey. She brought gifts for the children. In this photo she’s in the back in the white shirt.
