the evil eye

overcast my soul.

tears of anguish flow, hopelessly

from the torrent of memories

i can no longer deny.

36 years and on we go

past the point, never to be reached.

implanted fear

you thought,

was all it would take.

but today

I AM,

and never showing any innocence…

 

 

a message to them.

  “I Need To Wake Up”

I watched an “An Inconvenient Truth” last night, and it was an incredibly interesting, entertaining, thought provoking piece of work.  As an average American citizen, I am amazed that this information is not everywhere.  I did some google searches and found that there are still way too many websites dedicated to disputing this info.  How can people be so damn naive?  All you have to do is look around, and you can see that it’s true. We are a society of people living in a world of, if it doesn’t make me prettier, popular, more powerful, most talked about, richer, then I don’t give a shit.  What is wrong with us?  There are so many very important things going on the world right now.  Yesterday was a record breaking death toll in Iraq, for example.  Still, search engines report their top searches are in areas of entertainment and entertainer’s.  Come on people, it’s time to WAKE UP!!!!  If your family is floating out to sea because global warming has caused the ocean’s to rise 20 feet, is it really going to matter who married who, who’s fighting who, and who said what on television?  Watch this movie, do your own research…and shout out loud that something has to change. Before it’s too late.

A top ten list to tell if it’s an apology or a confession. 

  I’m sorry, by Brenda Lee

 Why do people apologize?  Usually it’s to make peace, to distract and to dissolve the situation.  Sometimes it’s because you are really remorseful, and with the apology comes a change in behavior. Sometimes the apology is so twisted and full of excuses, “I’m sorry, but…” that you end up feeling more confused and more hurt after the so called apology has been given. The act of apologizing  has become a very popular trend these days.  There have been many high profile apologies, even in the last month.  I find many of them to be very humorous. But the fact that people buy into them, I find quite alarming.  So, here’s my list to help you out.  Sometimes an apology is not an apology at all, but it is a confession, if you know how  to listen. I’m going to keep them kind of generic so that they can be fit into any situation.

 What they said…                                                                                                    

1. I’m sorry you misunderstood me.

2.  I’m sorry,  but it’s not as bad as it seems.

3. I’m sorry, but it was the booze.

4. I’m sorry I did that.

5. I’m sorry,  but that’s not what I said.

6. I’m sorry, but I just went crazy.

7. I’m sorry for everything.

8. I’m sorry if I offended anyone.

9. I’m sorry, I will never do it again.

10. I’m sorry, it’s not my fault.                     

What they meant….

1. I’m sorry that you’re an idiot.

2. I’m sorry I can’t tell you the truth.

3. I’m sorry, but it’s better if you believe I’m a drunk instead of an asshole.

4. I’m sorry, but it sure was fun until I  got caught.

5. I’m really sorry you’re smarter than I thought you were.

6. I’m sorry you found out who I really am.

7. I’ll be really sorry if I get caught for something I haven’t done yet.

8. I’m sorry you people are so sensitive.

9. I’m sorry you’re making me feel bad, but when you’re feeling better I will do it again.

10. I’m sorry that  you will eventually find out that nothing will ever be my fault.

The list can go on and on, but these are the most common apologies.  Just remember, the next time someone says “I’m sorry”, they could be confessing, “I’m one sorry SOB”!!!!  Listen to them.

A Nightmare

Posted: November 23, 2006 in All, Blogroll, CELEBRITY, Family, Life, poetry

Thanksgiving and the holiday’s in general can be a lovely thing or a nightmare, depending on your place in life.  But after 1 turkey carcass and all  the sides, and 2 bottles of champagne, I come here with nothing, and I’m left with this, thanks to a very talented artist.  Art is subjective.  One person’s treasure can be another person’s trash.  To me, this following piece is a treasure. It describes my feelings then and my feelings now.  The weird part is, the differences have changed. The wonderful thing about poetry and music, and art is that they are open to the indivdual’s interpretation.  For example, to the artist it can mean a broken family, to the admirer it can mean  a broken soul (and even that statement can be open to interpretation.  Your broken family or broken soul may not be the same as the artists or as mine).  Art is what you make of it.  The reason  for me sharing the following is not for you to get to know me better.  I know you could give a shit, but to remind you of all the gifts art has to offer, whether it is your trash or treasure.

turkey day

i saw the queen 2 day
thanksgiving –
my holiday ritual
from way back when

dinner was across the street
borrowed humans
aunt judy – who i saw more often
than any of my own

a family i had
just not the one i wanted
with 2 parents
tablecloths and tupperware

1 where love
ruled all
justice prevailed
hugs were had

dont b afraid
these r only feelings
i miss the dream
what could b

to see what u have
not what is missing
a certain shift
as i wake from hibernation

what makes news and y
when u r the story
step back
from the movie

real life awaits
all brave enough
2 day and always
i am thankful

peace 2 u and urs

PMS (Pre-menstral syndrome) effects all women to differing degrees and effects anybody who has a woman in  their life.  Be it a mother, sister, girlfriend, wife…or even just a friend. PMS is serious business, and it’s something to keep in mind as the stress of the holiday season approaches.  Everytime I hear this song, it makes me smile and laugh.  Even if you don’t like country music, the lyrics are worth a listen.
