Please Like Me or Don’t Hurt Me

I’m middle aged—And that is not to be confused with a younger person who has begun to fear growing old. I don’t have much cancer, talent, muscle, or money;  One could say I live my life accordingly. I live in Alabama. That is where I love from. I’m glad to be alive even though I cannot really justify it much of the time.

I regret what the human race has done to our world. I’m trying to find courage to live so as not to regret too much of what I’ve done with my life. I try not to hate, dread, or envy, but I’m willing to rant, hide, or beg.

Disclaimer: I can be too preachy and dread realizing that I have sounded as though I have no idea what I’m talking about.  Also, if something in my poetry seems nonsensical, it wasn’t on purpose…and could be the result of a cognitive dysfunction on my part.

I desire safe, beautiful, purposeful adventure. I desire to be known as a loving person. I desire to bring joy to my loved ones if I possibly can before it’s too late.

Below, please find partial lyrics for The Talking Heads’, “What a Day That Was.”

… There are fifty thousand beggars
Roaming in the streets
They have lost all their possessions
They have nothing left to eat…

… I’m dreaming of a city
It was my own invention
I put the wheels in motion
A time for big decisions

And on the first day, we had everything we could stand
Ooh and then we let it fall
And on the second day, there was nothing else at all
Ooh what a day that was…

… Ooh that’s the way it goes
There’s a million ways- to get things done
There’s a million ways- to make things work out…

    • What can I possibly say, but to timidly suggest that perhaps we who live here do not always appreciate our grand fortune. What to do, what to do?

  6. Where I am, who I am, as I sit, with much I need to express about myself, but not in first person, out of embarrassment; I so admire those of you represented at this post, your ventures, adventures, and progressions to new days. At the moment, I’m doing well to hold on to a volatile trance of expressionless-ness, like an autistic child; but my eyes venture to sense the eight of you, lined up there.

    I’m impressed with each of you. Thank you for the likes, the follows, the thank yous–the sweet response to this blog is the sweetest thing in my life to happen for some time. And I am not worried about quantity of readers. I’m so very pleased with the high quality of creativity and individuality you all present on line. This goes to all my followers. I think I’m at 29, now….but that’s just for the record. As I said, it doesn’t matter.
