Lately I've been a little moody
I get triggered by comments made
on a video or a tweet or the supposed
leader of our nation spouting his views
on ****** assault victims....

The real victims....men and boys that
are being accused of a horrible act
Innocent yet treated like they're guilty.
Please, don't get me wrong.
Being falsely accused is terrible.
Any one guilty of it should be held liable.

But, after all of the victims, women and men alike
coming forward to tell their stories, he speaks on
behalf of the accused.....Am I ****** for being angry?
What really disappoints me are the people that get upset
when women react to such insensitive views.
They tweet or comment and I try to have conversations
with these people and end up screaming into a pillow!

I walk away wondering if it's worth my time to make
my point of view understood.  
Will I ever change any ones mind?
It's the black lives matter vs all lives matter struggles
all over again!
The argument of should players stand for the anthem!

Why don't people understand that saying black lives matter
doesn't mean ONLY black lives matter, it's a way of saying
Please remember!!!  Black lives matter TOO!  Stop the hate!!!
People of color are being discriminated against and we are tired.
So finally a man decides to protest by calmly taking  knee during the anthem aaaaannnd......here HE comes to manipulate the meaning of it all and makes it about disrespecting the flag and
our troops.  

And don't even get me started on *** rights!  To be treated like
second class citizens is ludicrous!  How fantastically absurd to
be told by your own government that you cannot marry the
person you love! And because life has to be just a little more
unfair the LGBTQ community are at high risk for ******
assault and hate crimes too!    

I realize none of this is new....I guess the Kavanaugh hearing
triggered me and I can't seem to get it off my mind.  I heard
Dr. Ford's testimony and watched as so many people, including
the man himself, come with more and more ****** excuses
and a half *** investigation and in the end he sits on the supreme court any way.  

I'll do my duty....I'll use my voice and vote, but I live in a red
state and I know it's an up hill battle.  One that may be lost.
But I've said my piece.  If you've read through it all, thank you.
If you agree with me, keep fighting. If you don't, I respect your
opinion, but I'll never understand it.
I needed to vent....I did.  I can't say I feel any better, but maybe tomorrow, I'll wake up to find a few more people have joined the fight.  Here's hoping.
Life's a scoulding bowl of sticky custard, mustard and marmite.
Mixed up into a slop,
And plopped on your lap.
Then they **** all over you while you try to clean it up and ***** a few jokes because that ain't enough.
Chuck him some fish guts and sick to help cover it up!
And when he slips on the guts we'll **** in his face.
But make sure to keep a smile or you'll be for the waste.
Skivvy should be my first my last and my middle name.
Stuck in another ******* episode of ground hog day.

It’s so annoying that you constantly call me every 5 minutes, just to ask me what I’m doing.
It’s so annoying how you think I’m up to something when I don’t answer when you call me.
Now, what the **** happened to you? You were so cool when I first met you.
Now I can barely see what’s ahead of me, ‘cause 24/7 all I have in front of me is you.

It’s so annoying that when I’m trying to sleep you don’t stop calling me and texting me.
It’s so annoying that when I call you the next morning, I have to listen to you whining.
I’m just so sick of seeing your face, you don’t even give me room to breathe.
You’re talking to me at a pace I can’t keep up with and I feel it’s slowing down my thinking ability.

It’s so annoying when you try to control me.
It’s so annoying when you argue over nothing.
It’s so annoying when you stare at me like you own me.
Don’t you get the hint?
It’s so annoying how you whine like a little baby.
It’s so annoying when I try to understand your thinking.
Everything you do to me is so annoying.
Don’t you get the hint?

I can’t escape from you, even when I’m by myself.
In the middle of a dream I see your annoying face.
When I think you’ve vanished, you pop out of nowhere.
This is it, ***** this, you’re a nightmare.

So, what if I made the first move?
I only did it, ‘cause I thought you were cool,
but then I got to know the real you.
I’m not kidding, woman, there’s something wrong with you.
So, what if we’ve been dating for a month?
What, now you think you own my world?
After you annoying the **** out of me in such a short period,
I’d be crazy if I stay with you one more minute.

When I said that I loved you boy did I lie
I was willing to break up
more than I was willing to try.
Don't be surprised of the words I say
and what you don't know
you'll find out today.
Don't get me wrong but I think it's fair
for me to tell you I just don't care.
There use to be a time when I was very enthused
now it's a matter of time of the new person I'll choose.

Christians who inflict pain on
their fellow believers...
For them in that time,
*** does not exist.

The inflicted has had enough,
cuts ties and moves on,
so-called 'Christians' try to
come back because
they're blood.

Those so-called Christians
NOW remember that ***
exists.

Where was the thought of *** when you threw knives at me?
Where was the thought of blood when you laughed at my pain?
Where was the thought of *** when you abused your family?
Where was the thought of blood when you decided to cheat?

Where was it, huh?

Oh, now that YOU'RE the one's suffering,
*** is real.

Oh, now that YOU'RE the one's suffering,
you remember your age as well as
your blood.

I'm in no way saying in a perfect Christian
because I am not a perfect being.
And for every mistake I've made
or yet to make, I know that
*** will deal with me
accordingly.


Who are you to manipulate
the words of our maker
just to get what you
want from me?

You used manipulation
and you fell into
your own
calamity.

You blanked me when you saw my tears.
You blanked me when I tried to speak.
You blanked me when I shouted.
You blanked me when you struck me.

So what are YOUR croc tears
about, huh?

Now, leave me be.
Just to clarify, I'm not hating Christians themselves. I myself have Christian beliefs and attitudes. What I hate the most is the hypocrisy. They do bad things to their fellow man. In my case, they do wicked things to their own blood.
Continuously!
And when that same person who they've hurt decides to just cut them off and move on, they wanna come back and pull the 'religion' card - saying that the person they've hurt is unchristian-like and all that ****.
Seriously.
All I want is to be left alone by these people.
If anything, they've just added to my trust issues, and I don't blame people sometimes for how they perceive us either!
Many Christians give ACTUAL Christians a bad name!

Right now, I'm a little too ******* and agitated so I'll go,
cool off and come back later.

Be back soon.

A stake through my heart <3
What would it feel like.
THE HEART
That beated for you,will suddenly stop.
These eyes, that always longed to see you will close forever.
These ears, that always craved to hear your voice, will never listen anything from you again.
These lips, that always wanted to talk to you will be silent till eternity.
My body that always wished for your hug, will turn cold forever.
"JUST A STAKE THROUGH MY HEART"
still sad thoughts

Before you call me patient, maybe step in a little closer;
continue your inspection.
What you'll find is this: my tolerance stems more from letting people trample over me
than from any conscious effort to be kind,
so take caution.
You've become so casual in your continuous disrespect; it's building a
fire of aggravation.
I didn't love myself and I didn't believe I deserved to,
but I'm learning - and I still have a tremendous distance to go - that I am worth much more than
my previous prediction.
Moving on from you seems so foreign. Your loss would be the weirdest mixture;
an excited lamentation.
All I hope is that you benefitted from my so-called patience
and that the world I showed you was a step up from reality - almost like a
temporary life promotion.

Who got 90
And who got 90.2
Is that how they'll
Measure my knowledge
Did I remember the year in
Which Henry gave his law?
Did I know the trajectory
Of electron
These over hyped exams
(Which get leaked)
are going to decide
whether my dreams
Will come true.?????
Well  of course
Yessss! They will
I hate this grade system
And yet I have to get
Good grades so that one day
I can change it
I WILL BE THE CHANGE
I WANT TO SEE......
