Francis: Hey, I thought we could order some nachos. Cheesy nachos. Ethan: Not on my watch. Francis: What! Francis: Hey! If the moon was made of cheese, would you eat it? Ethan: I – Francis: I know I would!
Ethan: Did you get that from SNL?
Francis: what’s Snel? Pour me an adult beverage. Milk! That takes guts.
I’m at a place in my life Where I’m tired of excuses Everyone has them I’m tired of looking for someone else to blame That ties and binds I want freedom And that comes from the liberation Of accepting responsibility Rather than surrendering that to something else —— If I want to change I have to change I have to face myself —— I’m for Whatever gets you through as long as it doesn’t hurt someone And as long as we understand We can’t ask people or expect people to be like us It’s a very solitary road But I don’t mind Just being alive is exciting You can live passionately And impact lives For the better Without asking them to change And be like you Give a hand To help eachother UP Help eachother level up Believe in one another And your community There’s room for all of us Let there be love -E
These are the great places, Where you can find solitude Not just alliteration of words correspondence of sound between one thing or the endings of another But A connection of the heart and the soul Of heaven and earth Reminded of our brevity and our long reach for eternity…
The wind comes down and cleans us from everything that weighs us down…
This is just one season Hid away From everyone Hoping for something that lasts Longer than … Whatever this is… Has been…
Curious of communication Of legacy
How shall we escape If we hold grudges If we do not hold fast To the vision We all are created equal Pride in our past in what we have accomplished in where we are going… Those who have risen to high places Do not hear us …they cannot hear us from the mountain top..they hold the vision But us here in this bitter earth… Our daughters hear us Our children hear us Our wives hear us How shall we escape If we do not hold the vision ourselves ?
How do I write or create and give proper representation to everyone…
Can it even be done?
Look at the Sistine chapel
The creation of Adam
What if we all stopped and froze
What if there were no German poets?
Because they halted their breath after WWII?
You have to speak
You have to be brave enough
To look at yourself
Look at the world you walk through
And make notes
And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself with; and he sat down among the ashes.
Job didn’thave a pastor, a minister, a doctor or a psychiatrist. He didn’t have anything, his family were dead, his livestock dead, his wife was unkind. She told him to curse God and die. in an effort to give him some relief. And ease his suffering.
But he said
“I can’t, I know too much, I’ve seen too much, I can’t go back…”
He scraped his boils with pottery…
To give some relief….
Art,poetry,creating is important because it is what we live for…
It’s the colours of living. It’s life…
You’re unique, you stand out, you view the world separately and differently, there is only one you.
We’re not supposed to fit in.
Or be like anyone else…
That’s why history has those few remnants, those that create.
They look at the world and they make notes and they write what they see.
Fb, apps, algorithms?
If you’re waiting for it to be safe…
To discern truth for you?
You’ll die waiting…
These things are not the truth tellers…
That’s me and you…
It’s up to us to discern what is truth…
I’ll say it again…
All of this fake and false and upsetting and black clouds and thunderstorms and the future is dead and god is dead and we have to remake everything so it’s perfect and there is no hurt hearts or shocked eyes?
– why won’t she talk to me? I don’t understand…we had so much in common and now she’s just disappeared again! She comes and goes and I don’t know what to do…
I watched as my friend continued this emotional rollercoaster holding her face in her hands, blaming herself, hating herself, for simply caring or opening up…
– you may never get the closure you want or feel that you need. And you have to be ok with that. Some people, go through people. When they’re bored, or lonely, or missing something…some people get easily distracted and just lose track….they have tunnel vision. When it’s on you it’s great. When it’s not it’s cold…
I don’t know what to tell you, it’s really up to you. What are you going to be ok with? We all work. We all have lives. It takes 3 seconds to send a message. Are you worth three seconds?
(Our other friend waved his hands in the air agreeing.)
– you know,
He started his own soap box of psycho babble
– it’s in what you give. I always give a lot of cash and attention
I stopped him
– Your girlfriend didn’t fall in love with you because of your presents, I don’t know, maybe she did, maybe she didn’t…but she also left you….
She fell for you because you gave her your attention
You let her know when you were thinking about her
You let her know even though you were busy, you were working, that you were still thinking about your queen.
You valued her…
The presents were just a plus and then you stopped and you got lazy after you got her and she left
Because she knew what you were capable of and she knew what she was worth…
You have to dance with people
And you have to let them know you care
And you have to make your mind up
What are you going to be able to live with?
Half hearts ?
Or are you going to show up
Say what you feel and mean
But have a standard to it
(He just stared at me)
– anyway it’s the presents, you have to buy your way in.
(Stop man just stop.)
– I don’t know what is right or wrong
People want to be craved, they want to be desired, they want to be fought over and pursued. And some people get so used to looking for something better and all the choices that they forget someone may not pick them or chase them and they just go through people. Or they can’t make a decision at all.
