So it clearly isn’t just for the drug addicts and people who are broke and facing insurmountable odds. Chester from Linkin Park, Kate Spade and Mr Bourdain may you all rest in peace weren’t broken for sure. Didn’t seem like drug addicts, but you never know, you never know what and what doesn’t make a person happy. Whats that saying? “What good is it to gain the whole world and lose your soul?” I feel in the end we are losing ourselves, why do we have to be tough? Why is it not okay to not be okay? why do we persecute, and say things like its life just handle it. That works for some people, some people handle life and in the end like the three people I just mentioned, life somehow ends up handling them. How we handle things going forward will say a lot about us as a country and as a world. While bad things seem to be happening all over the world, school shootings at two a clip a month is only happening in one civilized nation. That’s right, send them to school, somewhere they are supposed to learn and feel safe. Does anybody feel safe anymore? I see why someone could make the choice that the three I mentioned did, this world is an ugly place. An ugly place that we the people and the rest of the world have created, and now what is left are choices. Its time to stop arguing about what happened and do something before it happens again. While we are looking to the left at what just happened, over on the right we are missing what is happening now. We are a step behind in the process and now it feels like we have become the process. Who knows, we all can be vulnerable to it. We all can have a little too much to drink and make a bad choice, we all can be depressed and in the moment and see no way forward. That saying you never know until you walk a mile in someone’s shoes is one of the truest ever. Has it ever crossed my mind at my worst moments when I saw no way out, for sure. But what turns a thought into an action? The action part I could just never take, but am I just lying to myself? Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain? They had means that they earned, they didn’t want for anything material, they seemed to be happy and enjoying life and yet here I am typing about them. Two weeks ago if I had dropped those names and said suicide, how many of you would have laughed? Right, you can be the richest person in the world, with the prettiest girl and not have a want or need and in the end you need more than you know. I don’t know why people lay down the final Trump card, may you all rest in peace and may we start finding answers instead of these never-ending questions!
Forgive me sir, and yes I’m Christian and yes I voted for you. But don’t you think like the song says, “it’s too late, when we die, to admit we don’t see eye too eye? Weird, all I seem to hear from you is fear and hate, not saying the Bible’s perfect, it’s written and interpreted by man! And boy let me tell you about some of the shit our fellow man has done lately! But fear and hate is what strung Jesus up on a cross, and yet that is the route you have chosen to take! Kids are afraid to go too school! People are afraid to walk in a mall and go back to school shopping! While guns play some role in what’s going on, let’s stop blaming an object that can’t do it, itself! Wether accidental or intended, guns don’t just go off without some kind of human reaction! And now, my human reaction is simply this! We did this America, what are we going to do about it?
And it isn’t Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors. Today, just outside of Houston, another one bites the dust! Another kid is dead, another teacher too, even more kids lives shattered and scared to death to walk back into their high school! It’s tge guns, it’s my second amendment it’s this or it’s that! It was Texas today so obviously every other word was God this or God that! While I believe in God, this isn’t his problem, this is our problem! This isn’t a God made problem, let’s me clear, this is a MAN made problem. This is us reacting instead of acting, this is what we have created! It’s not guns, if they can’t get them legally they will get them illegally! If someone wants to shoot something up, they’re going to find a way to get a gun. This is America, money talks ladies and gentleman! Money is what’s getting in the way of the issue that we can’t seem to take care of! Interests throwing money on this side and interests throwing money on that side! Not to help save kids lives, but to save their bottom line! It’s not like it seems like once a month these school shootings are happening! I look overseas and while I love my country, I don’t see this happening anywhere else so why? This is where people turn the argument back to guns and Houston we have a problem!
The one nobody wants to talk about, oh wait, that Rhino has survived millions of years I do believe. The one thing that it couldn’t survive you ask? The greed of the human race, anybody listening out there? Yeah, I’m talking too you with the phone and the Snapchat and the Facebook, that shit isn’t real. Does Jeff Bezos really need anymore money? He’s taken down Americas malls, and now he’s taking down Americas grocery stores, lets not forget about the books stores who he took down a long time ago. While He’s been busy at a rapid pace building his empire, I just wonder what He’s doing to our communities? I don’t think for a second that Kim Jung Crazy Pants is are biggest threat, that for sure is us. Look at the polar ice caps, look at the weather and the wildfires and things we have never seen before in recorded history. But we seem to be more concerned with a Russia probe that at this point doesn’t matter, he probably did it, he has been in office over a year now, let it the fuck go. It’s not about fixing the problems that we have as a world, it’s about how many times Trump went golfing, which porn star he banged and a corrupt leader leaving Peru probably loaded to take asylum somewhere. Funny how these people we elected, who are supposedly supposed to be looking out for us, seem to be not so trustworthy at all. I think at this point I would trust a car salesman, at least he is honest about it, lying is a big part of his job. How do you raise a kid today? I’m raising an 18 month old and I am terrified. Don’t degrade women, but grab them by the pussy and they dressed that way so they were asking for it. Fucking really? That’s what you are going to use to justify it? Would you be saying that kind sir if it was your daughter? Tell my daughter to go to school and look what happens there. Maybe its mental health, I don’t think assault rifles are completely necessary, I think bullying must end and people must stand up. I make excuses for nobody who takes cowardly actions, but I hope someway, somehow we figure out a way out of the darkness that we have been living in and back into the light. Seen my share of “Broken Halos” blares in the background as I write this. Seeing more than my share lately, seeing too many broken people. People who have quit, people who have been beaten and broken down one too many times. People who once had hope and now like that last male Rhino, hope seems all but dead. Kids who have given up and turned too guns, parents who aren’t parents and this is why we are in this mess. Don’t beat you kids, but spank their ass and teach them some discipline. Kids these days have no idea what consequences are until it is far too late. I guess unlike the Rhino, I hope it is not far too late for us…….
On how bad our life is, we forget about that town in Syria, we forget about those kids in Parkland. We forget about 100 girls kidnapped from school in Nigeria, we forget, because it is becoming all too common. We choose to worry about little problems and let them become big problems! We forget about are pride, we let ourselves sink into the mentality of, well he did it and got away with it, so why do I have to be better? If I have to tell you why, you have already fallen into life’s trap game. I’ve played poor me for so long and it’s life’s fault or why did YOU do that, that I lost myself. Like a lot of us, I lost my way and I made things that weren’t okay, well okay! The mind is an amazing thing, we let it convince ourself that we can or can’t do something, but the reality is this. Eminem was right, “you can do anything you set your mind !” Plain and simple, nothing to be argued about there, excuses or extra work to figure it out? Because at this point with the state of the world, we bettter figure a way out now!
What you didn’t do over what you did! What you didn’t do because of who was watching or who you wanted to impress! Haylee Steinfields Let me go plays over and over in my head! All I could have done, all I didn’t do, all I did do and what’s doing me now! To far too fast, to high too fast, and get comes the crash and burn! Yeah, I’ve been hoping, hoping to let go of and put to bed this life I created, these demons I’m chasing on my path to nowhere! Their right you know! The ones who said that you’d regret those chances you didn’t take. Those people you did t see or make time for at the moment, because time plays tricks and you were sure you’re going to have more moments! Now all you doing is hoping and praying, hope is a great thing to have and I’m not against praying at all. But both mean jack if you don’t act on your prayers and hopes and dreams! Asking then doing nothing is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of. It’s like banking on winning the lottery! Just a few midnight ramblings to think about!
Yeah, you and me in case you were living on the moon the last year. It needs men like you and me to stand up and be better! It needs parents who teach their kids respect, instead of these snot nosed little brats running around. While we were keeping up with the Kardashian’s, it appears we let the world go to hell. We need kids to put down there I babysitter and start using their minds. Instead of who can kill the most zombies or who can build the biggest treehouse on mindcraft. We need heart, we need guts, quite frankly, we need to grow a fucking pair. We have to start caring, because somewhere along the way we quit caring and the end could be near I fear! You don’t have to believe me, you can continue to look the other way, but all you have to do is turn on the local news. It’s every fucking day now, I think we are a far bigger threat too ourselves than North Korea will ever be. It’s man can’t handle reality so he shoots up church. Man has some money and power so the rules don’t apply, “just grab them by the pussy!” Then there’s my favorite as I alluded to the other day, women invite this shit because of the way they dress! I suppose I’m a thug now because I like to wear Jordan’s, better watch out! Better watch out, better not cry, better not pout I’m telling you why Santa ain’t coming, I’m not sure God himself can save us from this one. I’ll leave you with this, we have become a people who look up and pray and ask for it, and then don’t do a damn thing down here to get it! So my apologies, sorry to wake you from your slumber, but the world could use a few good men…….
