Recently I’ve been feeling crunched and distant from my family; I’m not sure, maybe it’s because I’m getting carried away by other unrelated things. Or, I’m just moving on too fast, or too slow. I know, we have all been through one of those times when we reason: "What’s the point to all this? Why I’m I doing this? Why was I born? Why me? Why can’t I be like that?"
Much more of this run through our minds and in my own life I’ve come to understand, asking and trying to find answers to this question makes living more interesting (maybe I was too hopeful on that) and if you can write about it every better (hence this blog).
Here is one of the ways I try to relieve stress, and hopefully share my mind and thought insipired by Bill Hicks. This was previously published on Facebook (Where is, Life) and here’s what some might call a 2nd edition:
Life is a ride at an amusement park,
And as we go on it, we somehow think it’s real.
That’s how powerful our minds work.
And this ride goes up and down, round and round, in it’s many brightening colors,
And it’s loud and much fun,
But for a while.
Some have been on the ride for a long time they begin to question:
"Is this real?"
"Or is this just a ride?"
And others see through it and come back to tell us:
"Hey! Don’t worry, you won’t be on it long,
it’s just a ride."
And we kill those people.
"Shut him up!
I got a lot invested in this ride!
Shut him Up!
It’s my turn of wheels,
Look at my bank account, my family,
This has to be real!"
It’s just a ride.
We kill those good guys who try to tell us that.
But it really doesn’t matter,
‘Cause it’s just a ride.
And we can change anytime we want,
It all in the choice,
No effort, no work, no job, no savings, no money,
Just a choice right now…
Between Fear, and
Between Right, and Wrong.
