but it requires a lot of effort for me to do so, and quite frankly, I don’t think you’re worth it. That was not meant to be offensive. What I mean to say is that I hate small talk, especially if it’s not going to go anywhere — it’s exhausting! And I know that with you & you & you, our conversations and relationship will never go any deeper. We both don’t want that & it’s plain to see. Do you understand? So why would I… no, why should we waste our time, breathe & energy on something so meaningless? You see, it’s not selfish; I’m thinking about the both of us.
You allow the same beauty and goodness that we ignore and destroy in our blindness to your infinity.
Got this off of fb:
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that.
Could not have been explained any better
i hate how life goes on even when i’m not ready to move on
it causes a misstep in my rhythm
the view from up here is great… i wish you could join me
everyone would be happy
& yet I’m still the same…
I made a list of pros & cons, but then I tore it up & blew the pieces off the table. I’ll put the past away and worry about the future when it comes. So I’ll relax & enjoy the ride. I may get hurt when it’s over, but I know I’ll be okay.
I don’t know where this will take us,
but I think I’m willing to figure it out
with you… I think.
I’m slightly scared,
but keep holding my hand.
