Naked Secrets – Read Between The Lines

“A country destroys itself from within, not without,” Joe said as he stood next to his lawyer.

“How do you plead?” the judge asked.

“Not guilty.” With a slight smile on his face, he turned around to face two men that were seated at the back. Dropping his smile, he sang through clenched teeth, “Tell me what you want to hear, Something that will light those ears, I’m sick of the insincere, I’m going to give all my secrets away.”

The men got up and rushed out of the courtroom to their government tagged car. One of them made a call to the red phone. “Sir,” he said, “he got a conscience.”

Mirrored – Read Between The Lines

As he sat on the sofa, Jack listened to Black Flies by Ben Howard. The song flowed through the house like a river heading to its tributary. Hearing his wife’s car pull into the driveway, he got up.

She disgusted him because of the affair that she was having. He knew, even though she thought it was a secret. Luckily for him, he had arrived home before she did. He did his laundry.

Eureka, I think

How can you tell when you have found what you were looking for? When and if you did, was it all that you expected, or was it anti-climatic?

Is This All

Translation by silverlining

Day by day
The same scenes are reenacted
Running but without a destination

Giving it all
Putting it together
I look forward to some changes in life

They are fools,
With such cold faces,
Speaking a language of ignorance

I give it my all,
And race ahead,
To realize my tomorrows

I pray that I’ll be able to meet,
The professed perfect world

IS THIS ALL I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR?
IS THIS ALL I’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR?
What am I looking for,
It all turned out to just be air
SO IS THIS ALL I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR?
WAITING FOR, WAITING FOR…

Half-opened eyes,
Half-awaken sleep,
Thoughts that are meddled with dreams

I wish to see,
Yet I cannot see
Am I at my limit?

I pray that I’ll be able to see,
The professed perfect world

IS THIS ALL I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR?
IS THIS ALL I’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR?
What am I looking for,
It all turned out to just be air
SO IS THIS ALL I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR?

Why should we love people?

Why do people fall in love? Why should they?

Why should we love not only those close to us but everyone in the world? Or why should we try to?

How important is love?

These were the questions that were going through my head today.

That’s What Love Is For

Liverpool FC is

bad for my health. I first was introduced to this team by my English friend, who I may add has gone on to cheer on another team, when Gerard Houllier was the manager. I watched their games, read any news about them, and yes, somewhere along the way, I was getting an ulcer. Well I believe it was. Their playing deteriorated. Drop them as my team then. No way. Perhaps silly me.

The good times I was there. The bad times, even more so. I fended off wisecracks and the smart sport soccer alecks telling me what a waste of team this was. I still supported, and still do, this soccer club. Why? Because I love them. I believe in them and hopefully they will again believe in who they are and what they can do.

In relationships it is the same way. Some people, those who are dear to you, those who mean something to you, will break your heart. They will give you a headache and yes, even make you physically sick. You do not stop loving them, but you keep your distance. You are still concern about them, but you keep your distance. Everyone needs a healing time–and space and absence sometimes is the best way.

What is your glue?

We often hear that we have to work together in order to get things done. But how can we? How can we put aside our differences for the betterment of others? What makes setting self aside worth it? Or is it all good feel phrases?

What is your “glue” for unity?
