For God's Sake

For God's Sake

A Poem by Jason
"

Time may change us...and may make us move forward in life... but time should not dictate your opinion of another.

"

 

Gather round'' Gather round' amiss this tiny little town

Full of land, full of life, full of drama, full of cows

And then there's people, Oh yes I remember, I can slowly remember now

I used to be part of them, used to be a part of that crowd

But not now, can't tell ya how, or when it was I fell down

And was forgotten in that town, as a voice without a sound

But it happened long ago, and took form while I lived at a distance

A victim of circumstance? Or just a glitch in time's persistent existence?

Good riddance, good rubbish, all is hidden, for old lover's

I've hindered, You've hovered, Now you say I have a decision to uncover

In front of me there's a bottle and a baby And I'm reaching for the wrong one to save me

It's quite shady, but quite frankly I couldn't care less if you hate me

Correct me if I'm crazy But if blood is like gravy; thick and amazing

Then how do you call yourself family when you're nowhere to be found lately

I find it simply amazing that when the tough gets going So many get going away

Unwilling to bend and so afraid they might break...For god's sake,

Is it too much to ask for you to share a few laughs?

With a loyal sense of air within grasp That doesn't choke the life out of your past?

If this poses a question in your mind, then maybe it pertains to you

But don't judge a man's integrity before you gather the truth

Before you gather around and gossip over my every mistake

Take a deep breath and a long look in a mirror for god's sake

Amen, Amen, Amen....oh have I been at the point of feelings as this, asking the questions that are asked in your "pointing the finger in the right direction" write!

The do gooders, the holier than thous, the condemnators aka the exterminators, the "I never did anything like that" persons who just love to judge others but fail to see the plank in their own eye!

You tell it like it is and that is just the way it should be told!

Wonderful insight Cuz!....keep shouting it! Do you think if they look in the mirror they shall not be able to see themselves for all the smoke they have created?

I can really relate to this, having come from a small town full of family and then having moved away. Going back home to visit evokes so many of the thoughts you juest described, well done!

You said so much in here. Judging and pointing fingers at mistakes, but never looking at the whole person or themselves...A wonderful write with an amazing message...

Oh how I feel the sentiment about family in this one. Know it too well, shamefully. Not my shame, but for certain family. I couldn't help but think, at the beginning, about animals. I have always had a way with them that is unusual, and noticed by all. But I was thinking how animals always look me straight in the eye, with much sorrow. I feel that sorrow when I see it. I believe that animals look right through us, see what's inside. I believe they feel what's there as well. We have that ability, as humans. But for selfish reasons, we turn it of. Ignore it. I don't. Just another beside you to listen, share your laughter with. Someone who will help to forget today's sorrows. Is that too much to ask of one? It appears so, my friend. In this day and age, I'm afraid it is so. Magnificent piece!

This is a brilliant piece over family woes. Why is it that when things start to go south and you need help no one is there. But when things are good and you have an overabundance of money then they can't leave you alone. At least that is my experience on things. Very well done. I like this piece.
