Popular Vote

Popular vote says..I do not care…

Popular vote says..who is supposed to care..?

Spending time talking with some people..and/or discussing anything…is like reading a fashion magazine…

Filled with glossy, airbrushed pictures…

All the right smiles and all the right poses…sort of like social media..

Posting information to shape your mind…

Lead you down a pathway…

One..I hope you never intended to go..

But lets go there…shall we..

How many believe life is like social media…?

I am scanning the crowd…not one hand raised..

So why bother…?

OOH I got the answer…

If I can make other people believe my hype..then I can believe my hype…

Sort of like a fairy tale…that if you read the words and pay attention to the hmmm oddities…you realize it is a horror story…

And some body has been ringing you around the posies..till ashes ashes we all fall down…

Kind of like watching the Walking Dead…and realizing we surrounded by the walking dead…literally.

That is why I do not play there…

I have no need to create illusions…

I will let that be done by the addicts…drunks..perturbed children running around in adult bodies…

Date night…Soulmates..ahh the answer to my heart…

If enough money is thrust in your hand…

Or enough DUI’s are paid off..

Or malice is created through lies…

You want to see truth…

Look at some of the pictures you like…

Notice anything weird…odd..off kilter…?

I do..but that is why I am wide awake and value this precious life…even if others do not..

Yet is that not the point…?

For me to value this life…

Ahh yes…it is..

To cut through all the plastered on makeup…

To decipher all the alcohol laden garbled words..

To simplify the money loaded in pockets through stolen tears…

To notice the performance pictures…poses…and anecdotes…

To stay steady the course…

To not go the path of the majority…

To create the path..

To travel the road less traveled…

What is the quote by Einstien….?

The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil. The world will be destroyed by those who see evil and do nothing about it.”

I have noticed something…

Perhaps it is because I are not up to my gills pickled in alcohol and drugs…

Perhaps it is because I watch Netflix and do not have on speed dial porn sites…of course for easy access..

Perhaps it is because when I look in the mirror I see my face..not one created through layers of plaster as if I cannot stand what I have become and I am trying to create a new one..

Perhaps it is because I care for this body. And 53 looks damn good on me..

Perhaps it is that I have given up having everyone “like” me..and have moved to “I Love Me”..

And that means the trash has gone out…

No trash in…means no trash out..

Perhaps it means..”self love”… “self compassion”…

Perhaps it means…I got this…

Every day..every moment…tick tock…

And look at that…

No poses..makeup or hair was injured during the making of this post..
