“…….not long for this world”
It’s a song by the way.
It’s fitting for the way I’m feeling lately.
I just got back from a long walk on my break at work, yeah so I took a 40 min break, listening to The Afghan Whigs “Gentlemen”. This is such a great album besides the lyrics and music, it has feeling. I actually had a tear in my eye. It’s partly because I’ve been feeling really emotional lately, and instead of hiding my sad emotions behind distorted fuzzy noisy music, I’ve opted to let it out and listen to a different type of emotional music.
I just found out that one of my good friends (Roger)… his mom is dying of terminal cancer and she only has one to six months to live. I can’t even begin to describe the sadness that I feel for them. I don’t know how I can help but tell him that I’m here for him.
Another friend of mine just went into the hospital for breast cancer surgery. It has been 6 months since she was diagnosed. I wish her well. What is it with this……. “cancer”….. I mean, why hasn’t anyone figured out how to cure it?
Another thing that has been on my mind lately is religion….. I’m not religious at all.
I don’t know one person who is a “PURE” religious person either. I had a conversation with a friend the other night as I’ve had with other people and we all agree that people don’t practice what they say they are. What really gets to me is the “born-again” Christians… what’s that all about? You can do something bad , I mean really bad, then the next day you are a full fledged god worshiper and preaching to those of us who have never done anything wrong - who aren’t of any religion?
I may not know much about religion but I’ve never killed anyone and then asked to be saved either. …. And the Catholics … what’s up with the whole (you can't be)living together without being married deal? Are you allowed to pick and choose from the different rules to follow and still call yourself a Catholic and go to church?
Am I wrong? Tell me I’m wrong! Go on… tell me!
I don’t know where all that came from…..
Relationships are hard aren’t they? Family, Friends, Lovers… It’s all a lot of work.
I don’t know why I even brought that up because I’m not going to go into detail about that kind of stuff on here. “… I’m in love with something that I can’t see”
