Full Circle

Tick tock, we're counting down
it's time to celebrate
why do we rush to lift our drinks
this world is full of hate


.... why does it seem to be that for reasons yet unknown, life is unfair? Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Girl likes boy, but still loves her former ex-boy. Boy desperately wants to hold girl and make her happy. Girl calls boy a "freak" and goes to the mall to buy new shoes to impress ex-boy with. Like he gives a shit about shoes...

Isn't it funny, how the world works? Some people eat their pets to stay alive. Others throw a fit when their $80 meal came with the wrong brand of wine. Some people work three jobs just to keep their kid in school. Others have a room full of classic cars and motorcycles. Some turn down five potential lovers each night. Others wait a lifetime without knowing a touch of foreign skin. Some laugh at the world because it's all they have. Others cry with the world... because it's all they have as well.


Somewhere right now...

  • There is a woman holding the body of her five-year-old child who just got hit by a car.
  • A woman doesn't know she just passed her "soulmate" on the street.
  • A mother and father are getting divorced over a silly argument, while a young child blames himself.

  • A man just lost his job because he's not in the company budget anymore.
