Summer Soap

"What are we doing?"
I ask myself
As we drip lazily through the days
Like warm honey
Like our world is crazy, awesome
When I know that's just a lie
"How long will it be before we end this soap opera?"
I wonder
Because every drama heated day
It gets harder to make that dreaded change
Life isn't meant to be a walk in the park
On a beautiful spring day- More like a night in hell
A walk must be earned through
Hard work and lessons learned
We've got to take off the shades
To allow the blistering sun to shine upon the situation
Only then will we see it's true nature
Seeing the beast for what it really is and
Fighting that bitch with all we have
Then maybe we can stand in the
Cooling spray of a sprinkler
If only for a moment

  2. We all need to find those moments of cooling spray when we can! However we can find them.

  3. Sounds to me like ostrich therapy - pretending things aren't there or will go away. Can be quite useful at times, I suppose, but there is always that little niggle of doubt, apprehension...

  4. Stripping things to truth is useful; when learning to see those things externally, one learns to strip the falsehoods we've digested throughout life and put them into a personal perspective and truth. Well said.

  5. This is very raw and honest. Truth hurts but, as the saying goes, it can set one free. :-)
