It Bears Repeating....

No musical alarm today, just the steady beep for about 2 seconds to shoot me into consciousness.....that's what getting up at 2:30 AM does for you!  This is the last time I'll spout off about this thing that has truly upset me. I shared a song last night, but it really does bear repeating...

This is one of those things that I won't forgive NOR forget....

Life is fairly simple and straightforward, once you cut through all the bullshit. The necessity of idle, baseless gossip is absolute NIL. What purpose does it serve? Who does it benefit? If you live a life where you take great pains to hurt people with your words, then you are enveloped in bullshit and thusly not able to see the trees for the forest. 

We are painfully simple people, my beloved and I. We don't bother anyone. We don't socialize much at all. We work, we come home to each other, we laugh, we talk, we dream. So, we find ourselfs fairly flummoxed that some people can't find anything more interesting, exciting or TRUE to talk about than their made up stories of our history. 

As you have and will probably hear me quote Dr. Maya Angelou: 

"You did then what you knew how to do, And when you knew better, You did better." 

As such, we do keep doing better, as we keep learning more. No one, nor the toxic sludge that flows forth from their mouth, can ever change that.

You like to hurt me
You know that you do
You like to think
In some way
That it's me
And not you
(But we know that isn't true)

You like to have me
Jump and be god
But I...
Don't want to do it

You don't know why
I won't act the way
You think I should

You thought they'd make me
Behave and submit 

What were you thinking
Cause I don't forget

You don't know why
I won't give in
To hell with the pressure
I'm not cavin' in

You know that I
Got under your skin
You sold your soul
But I won't let you win

You talk too much
You say I do

Difference is nobody cares about you

You've got all the answers
You know everything
Why nobody asked you
Is a mystery to me

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who in the hell to
or not to believe
I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who you can trust now
Or you should believe

You close your eyes
All well and good
I'll kick your ass
Like I said that I would

You tell them stories they'd rather believe
Use and confuse them
They're numb and naive

Truth is the truth hurts
Don't you agree?

It's harder to live
With the truth about you
Than to live with
The lies about me

Nobody owes you
Not one goddamn thing
You know where to put your
Just shut up and sing

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who in the hell to
Or not to believe
I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You choose to hurt those that love you
And won't see them free

You don't need
Anyone else to be
Sorry for you
You've got no heart
You can't see
All that you've done for me
I know the reasons
You tear me apart
