Different, Weird, Or Cracked



There's usually a balance tween sad and happy Somehow my brain's out of whack Certainly not saying I'm complaining or such Am I different or weird or cracked? Cracked or broken, ah maybe that's it Can only go by what I have learned Ya gotta be careful, must proceed with caution If not, you'll surely get burned The best thing to do is just take it slow Emotions can mess up your thinking Tread ever so lightly till you're sure it's right Then full steam ahead without blinking Someone out there is just waiting for you When you find them you'll know right away The trumpets will blow, the bells will ring Every day will be a red letter day I'm no expert but after seventy-nine years I've come to an astounding revelation From the moment we're born till the day we die Every day's an exciting celebration! © Jack Ellison 2014

    As uncle Si would say that's the fact Jack. But you are not cracked,weird, or different. Nothing wrong with being a thinker and a doer. Love, Carol

    Emotions can definately mess up your thinking... The police said everyone here can protest all they want during the day light... Not after dark... That's when the destructive part tries to settle into every thing... One of Ferguson's leaders stayed because he said he needed to observe... Well, some one threw something at the police... and guess what... Everyone was arrested... including the town leader... DUH!... His emotions to see everything got him hauled in with the bad guys... Honestly!DUH!
