Angie

Angie, Angie, when will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied
But Angie, Angie, you can’t say we never tried
Angie, you’re beautiful, but ain’t it time we said good-bye?
Angie, I still love you, remember all those nights we cried?
All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear:
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
Oh, Angie, don’t you weep, all your kisses still taste sweet
I hate that sadness in your eyes
But Angie, Angie, ain’t it time we said good-bye?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied
But Angie, I still love you, baby
Ev’rywhere I look I see your eyes
There ain’t a woman that comes close to you
Come on Baby, dry your eyes
But Angie, Angie, ain’t it good to be alive?
Angie, Angie, they can’t say we never tried

I remember back when I was in my 20’s I thought being in your 40’s meant you were old. I used to think that the age of 40 was the point where the downward slope started and it was all downhill from there. Silly.

Now that I’m in my 40’s I find that life is just beginning. At this point, there are still a lot of things I haven’t done. A lot of goals I haven’t reached. For example, one goal I have is to become a father with my wife. This was something I didn’t want in my younger years. But people change and I’m at a point where I’m ready for it and I know I can be responsible whereas I couldn’t be before.

That’s the thing- people change. So maybe in your younger years you weren’t ready for something in life and might have made bad decisions. I know for myself, I’m not exactly the same person I was even 6 months ago. We go through changes and situations that “rewire” us and so maybe now we’re ready to handle something in life that we couldn’t before.

But I also understand that maybe at some point it’s too late for certain things. For example, I admittedly regret the fact that my future children will never meet my father, their grandfather, because he’s passed away. But there is nothing I can do about that, I have to accept it.  For years I’ve hurt over my relationship with my father and his passing. But something happened to me recently that made me realize I have to accept things that I cannot change and I have to learn to let it go. Some things just weren’t meant to be.

So I’ve reached a point in my life where I am getting rid of past regrets, past painful situations, past painful relationships, past mistakes, things that do me absolutely no good by hanging on to it. It’s time to let go of things that are draining mentally/emotionally. This has to be done in order to move forward in life. I’m tired of hurting. I don’t want this anymore.

So if you’re in a point in life where you’re feeling old, tired and drained-you don’t have to feel like that anymore. Let go of your past mistakes, maybe things didn’t go as planned with something in your life and it left you feeling defeated. Press the restart button on your life. You don’t have to hurt anymore. Work on letting things go.

Age is not a death sentence. You still have a lot to give and life still has a lot to give you. Never give up on yourself.

My Dog Oreo

oreo

Recently, on May 6, 2017, I was fortunate enough to travel to South Florida and visit my dog Oreo. Oreo is an Akita mixed with a little bit of Jack Russell Terrier. I know, it sounds like a strange mix but he actually looks good. The only difference being that he is between 90 to 100 lbs, whereas a pure Akita would be 100 to 125 lbs. Still a big dog. He also has the classic curly tail and pointy ears of the Akita.

I had to give him up to my sister back in the Winter of 2015. I had to give him up because of my new job schedule at the time. He was alone in the house too long with no one there and he would get antsy. So we moved him to Jupiter, FL to live with my sister.

He does look older though, he is about 9 years old now. He is happy living with my sister and she loves him just as much. Now I don’t feel so bad about having to give him up. I know he’s in good hands.

Until next time Oreo. See you later buddy.

 

Every Shining Time You Arrive

Change in every little desire
We were counting on forces we could not control
Oh and all those things you realized
Were nothing more than a memory displaced through
So the story’s told beyond our grasp
We were climbing forever an infinite task
Shoulders straining with the endless toil
We’re nothing more than a feather moving in the wind
I want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on
Oh and all these seeds will grow anyway
Even though the outcome we cannot say
So you’ll always have your time to shine
Even in the winter of your darkest hour
Want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on

In the depths of my gloom
I crawl out for you
From the peaks of my joy
I crawl back into
Tearing me down every time you smile
Every shining time you arrive

Fell On Black Days

 

Whatsoever I’ve feared has come to life
Whatsoever I’ve fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I’m doing time
Now I’m doing time
‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I’ve cured, I’ve sickened now
And whomsoever I’ve cradled, I’ve put you down
I’m a search light soul they say
But I can’t see it in the night

I’m only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate? Yeah

So what you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine

Don’t you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying, no, not tying

I sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change
Yeah, I sure don’t mind, sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

I sure don’t mind a change

Black Hole Sun

In my eyes, indisposed
In disguises no one knows
Hides the face, lies the snake
The sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat, summer stench
‘Neath the black the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I’ll hear you scream again

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (won’t you come)

Stuttering, cold and damp
Steal the warm wind tired friend
Times are gone for honest men
And sometimes far too long for snakes
In my shoes, a walking sleep
And my youth I pray to keep
Heaven sent hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)

Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)

Hang my head, drown my fear
Till you all just disappear

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come
Won’t you come
