As the Stones say…
“You can’t always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
you get what you need ”
Parents use this song to justify spanking or time out.
(yes, I believe in spanking if time out doesn’t work)
I think the irony of life is, you can’t have everything you want
Where would you put it all?
Also, quite frankly I’ve learned, the more I own
The more it owns me.
Toys, pets, stuff, emotions.
Emotions especially can own me; I’ve always had to watch them.
Mastering me, instead of me mastering them.
My passion and deep caring is my best aspect
and my worst enemy.
See in life, whatever you get the best of
You also get the opposite in equal amount.
I think God really does have a sense of humor
This is why such tortured souls, like
Poe, Van Gough, Steve (you know the one)
produced such wonderful things that changed the world.
As Tony Robbins says,
When people are down they tend to ponder,
When they are up, they tend to party.
(He ripped off Ecclesiastes in the Bible by the way)
While I don’t like being down, I have learned more during
As my stepfather taught me,
“Pain is the one teach no one ignores”
Dad, I’d rather just trusted you on that one.
But that’s not the way life works, I wasn’t there
when God created everything, He didn’t ask me.
But He’s God and I’m not, so obviously He’s got a better point of view.
It just hard to trust Him, even when you know you should.
