Damage Control

Our yes’s mean no and our no’s mean yes
We do the opposite of what we truly want damage control in full effect 
We feel the effects so what damage are we really controlling 
Testing our limits matters of the heart manipulating 
Pulling strings cutting cords 
But there’s no way to cut the invisible cords 
This is the one pulling souls together from far corners of the earth 
Can you cut this cord? I’m not sure for what it’s worth

Lost In Translation

Mind games why do we play them.
When did life become so complicated where no one speaks the truth, no one says what’s really on their mind, so afraid of the response.

Instead we engage in strategic games of mind chess always considering our next 5 steps. Rarely in the moment we live our present with two hands on the future one foot in the past, hardly taking a moment to relax and actually truly laugh. 

When did life become so complicated, yesteryears childhood freedom a distant memory, now we struggle not to live with constant dread an worry. 

Who remembers when yes ment yes and no ment no, how many wasted hours have we lost trying to translate such simple words into a language we can understand.  

Struggling to comprehend words we look to seek knowledge through body language, X’s and O’s. Struggling to understand messages in this new digital age where everything is emojis and emoticons.

People communicate through statuses, pictures, quotes, gifs so much indirecting but rarely eye to eye speaking.

The simplest of messages are misconstrued, the simplest messages are lost in translation.
In a time where everyone is so easily accessible one of the biggest problems for our generation is miscommunication. 

Constantly miscommunicating.

Communication Problems

Impulsive unthought actions 
Explosive irrational reactions
We act unprepared to face the consequences of our decisions
Plagued by confusion misunderstandings and indecisions

Do we listen to the mind or heart
Do we listen to the feelings that last
That niggling feeling deep inside 
That voice we hear we try to hide 
Or do we just act from the depths of our raw emotions 
Resulting in act now think later situations 

No, we should think before we speak 
We can’t let the moments heat take control and run wild with a situation
We’d avoid so many issues if we worked on our communication
..Then take action

Love, a little side note..

If we embody love, become love in turn will we not show more love?

We must first love ourselves embracing all our flaws before we can truly love another imperfect being. 

Until we can accept that we are not perfect and that perfection doesn’t exist, we will always be searching for this person who along with perfection doesn’t exist.

Ask yourself this..
If we can not accept our own faults how will we accepts the faults of others?

Noone is perfect, that includes you.

Sipping tea like Kermit

Painting pictures picasso love
They’re not deceiving us 
Who are they trying to convince 
Is it them or us
The worlds looking in like we don’t give a fuck
In your love you need to trust
The sacredness is being lost
Posting mug shots sipping tea like germit
Two mugs clinking does he or she deserve it
With twitter fingers you say one thing
Hotline blinging sweet talking another’s thing
Singing two different songs
Broken record it’s just wrong 
Looking through the window of your soul do you believe the things you say
We sit back shake our heads and laugh at the games they play
