If you’re thinking this is another Prince post, you’re wrong-ish. This is a Dean post (that’s me for anyone who is new here), but Prince is obviously my inspiration. I’m heading into purple skies and gray clouds….
The Sky Was All Purple
I wish I could say I was dreamin’ when I wrote this, but please do forgive me if I go astray. When I woke up this morning the sky was all purple, my mind was everywhere. I was trying to run from my own destruction of my thoughts being here and there. The problem is I do care. I know too much about everything and everyone and I’m losing myself in it all. My focus has become blurred by a million things to do. The gray clouds are creeping in. I’m feeling a little lost. I’m ready to fit in and find MY place. Formation.
Life Is Just A Party and Parties Weren’t Meant To Last
There are wars all around us, I’m tired of all the fights. If we can’t live together as people, how can we live at all? I almost feel like 1999 was more progressive than today. If we’re fighting over Old Navy campaigns in the name of “racial genocide”, then we STILL haven’t decided we’re equal. And if we can’t love enough to put down our damn phones to save a life, what the hell….
When a front runner candidate for the position of PRESIDENT of the United States is backed by hate, endorses xenophobia, talks poorly of women (and you know how I feel about being a woman), mocks others (I could hyperlink that to numerous stories); this person doesn’t want to build bridges… just walls- zero parties. Perhaps, party over. Opps, we’re out of time!
If You Didn’t Come to Party, Don’t Bother Knockin’ On My Door
I’m done with the bullshit. But the bullshit is all around. I thought I moved away from it, but it follows. I’m a lover not a hater, but I am a fighter, and I will fight off hate. If you’re not here on this earth to be the good and party like it’s your last day, what are you here for? I got a lion in my pocket and I’m ready to roar. 😉 Everybody has the ability to fight for love, for peace, and happiness. We could all die any day, but before I let that happen I’m going to love, draw, paint, write, and dance my life away. Those are the things I need right now to stir away from the gray anyway…
