So, I am worried about Man.
I was listening to a song on the internet, yes big surprise, and I thought about how I am pretty much failing college, going to be kicked out and how my parents are going to be so pissed but I really don't care. I always thought about running away and leaving my life behind, but I decided I could never do that to my family. Especially now. So I listened to a song I showed my best friend when she was having a really hard time in high school and there was more than the usual drama in her life (her life is dramatic like most people but there were some people that were causing extra trouble). I remembered why I showed her the song in the first place, it was the lyrics I always took to heart whenever I listened to that song:
"There, there, baby
Its justtext bookstuff
Its in the ABC of growing up
Now, now, darlin
Oh dont lose your head
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you, yeah."
Imogen Heap, Speeding Cars
And for the rest of that year whenever things got hard I would sing her thatsnippetof the song because that was always the best thing I could do for her. I couldn't wave a wand and make the problems go away. All I could do was assure her that things would get better and that I was next to her no matter what.
But society has me worried. The greed of man is increasing at a steady rate and soon we won't be ever to satisfy the greed in our hearts. I'd be happy to get to work for my great uncle on his farm or get to garden with my grandmother. Pickingstrawberrieswhen I was younger was fun enough (they have to red but not too red), and then we got paid for the strawberries we picked (and we got to keep them I think...Idon'tquite remember, I was about 6). I kind of want a simple life but everyone else wants to make life a competition, and I have had enough of competitions.
