A picture of perfection,
The ideal smile and laugh,
You are an image of absolute joy,
The very idea of what we all should be.
But you aren’t real just an image,
You are the one that we try,
To kill ourselves to be just like,
And we always seem to fail.
A sickness you say,
Do you have it,
No I don’t,
That is half the battle.
There are so many things that we deal with, see and attempt to understand every day in our lives and so often we end up just not knowing. There are so many things that we can learn about, find interesting, seek knowledge about, it’s never ending. We can drive ourselves crazy with knowing and wanting to know but never being able to know and trying to somehow make that ok. So how can we live in a world and live our lives being comfortable with not knowing?
We all have those moments, when we are working or should be working on something but then life happens. We can’t seem to focus on what we should be doing because we have a thousand other things or we have one thing that we need to figure out but are avoiding so we “pretend” like we aren’t thinking about it and try to focus on something else. Have you ever noticed that when you try to focus on something else and attempt to ignore the “one thing” you can’t or don’t want to deal with, that you seem to be unable to focus on anything?
Wanting to say something but the words won’t come out,
No way to form the sentences needed to explain,
Let your mind focus on something more than this,
Where you don’t have to wonder and question,
It’s just a part of life the things we don’t understand.
Another week and time for another segment of “I’ve Got Something to Say About This…”, where I find something that stuck out to me in the news and write a little about the article and share my thoughts. As always I am glad to hear from those who read or want to comment or if you want to take a stab at it yourself, please let me know and I will be more than happy to feature you. So without further adieu, this week I am talking a little about social media.
Teen’s Terror Tweet
The window I see,
The outdoors calling,
Come set me free,
I hear you wind,
And I am coming.
There are words that you no longer speak to me,
When you used to be far yet I held you near,
Now your voice has fallen silent thinking my ears deaf,
You are worried about something I can see it,
But you won’t tell me and you hide behind lies.
This is a plea both for myself and for the one that I love. If you follow the link: Closing the Gap You will find a link to a fundraiser. This is so that a father can connect with his sons again.
Some days it just feels like nothing,
Or it’s everything all at once,
We are neither here nor there,
But we are everywhere and nowhere at all.
