Giving Up, but Not Losing!

“They dedicate their lives

To running all of his

He tries to please them all

This bitter man he is

Throughout his life the same
He’s battled constantly

This fight he cannot win

A tired man they see no longer cares

The old man then prepares

To die regretfully

That old man here is me

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known

Never shined through in what I’ve shown

Never be, never see

Won’t see what might have been”

-Metallica, “Unforgiven”

I spent a huge part of my life trying to engage and trying to understand those who sleep, but seem to be walking and talking all around me.  I always seemed to be missing something as they all agreed that there was definitely something wrong with me, though they could never come to an agreement on a diagnosis.  After a group of them would, in unison attempt to get me to assume their position on whatever the subject was, I would walk away and literally see them shaking their heads.  They felt sorry for me and were disgusted by me at the same time.

A riddle wrapped in a enigma, who they always seem(ed) to reach out to in times of stress or temporal impasse.  It’s not easy thinking and earnestly trying to do the right thing, people tend to hate you for it.    I’ve given up the fight, but I haven’t lost!
