Wisdom from Grits - Ooh Aah

its times like these that make me say
lord if you see me please come my way
leavin bread crumbs for when i stray
rely on sacrifice and the price you paid
feel me like a fingertip
sometimes i fall i slip
my heartfelt desire be more like you
trying not to quench your fire by the things that i do

on an island by my lonesome stranded
low key and stayin’ candid
reflect on all the things i try my hand at
search for the equations to persuasions im used to
finding comfort in the zones of closet bones i get loose to
a mountainous fontaine
spinnin and monsoonin’
grinnin’ its high octane
explosive how i came
rollin down hills cause lifes a hastle
encircled by my folly like a moat surround a castle
stay afloat catch a second wind
thin is the air i breathe
teary eyed nose runnin’
wipe the snot on my sleeve
im callin’ on my savior
to be all that i need
please forgive me
my behavior had me lost at light speed

the fear of never falling in love
and the tears after losing the feelings
of what you thought love was
like the dirt still up under the rug
bad characteristics
covered in christs blood
the joy of new birth
and the pain of growing up
the bliss between giving my all
and giving up
the highs and lows
paths and roads i chose
in the cold i froze
trying to ease my woes
in this world of sin
clothes to thin to fend
so to God i send
words of help to win
in grumblings so deep
letters could never express
so the sound of ooh aah
beneath my breath projects

Crap

Television is crap. Most movies are crap. I should have walked out. Why do i have to be so stupid all the time? I know I hate morally depraved, violent movies. but i just want to hang out with my friends. i want to fit in. I'm almost ready to give up. i can't fit in with people who i don't share any common interests with. Movies that are centered on murder and are graphic in nature...bother me. It bothers me that murder and blood and gore and guts spread all over a room are entertainment. We're no better than Rome or whoever, whatever - killing for entertainment. Culture has sterilized murder. I don't care if it's not real! Don't ever ask me to watch movies so depraved. I hate them. And I hate that I stayed to watch a movie just to be "social."

"And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears." - The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran

But yet I still cling the to the hope. someday, someday. Even if it's not in this life.

Phase 10 and music reedumacation

Last night the peeps on my floor and I played Phase 10 and ate yummy pizza. Hooray for social people! Jannae and I went to all the open doors on my floor to try to get people to play (since the people I normally hang out with refused to leave their computers *sticks out tongue at them*). Much fun. At some point in the game, Jannae and Jeremy decided I needed “cool” music. Thus begins “Katie’s Music Reeducation.” I don’t think it’s working… with the program (iMesh – completely legal and free!) they put on my computer I’ve downloaded Johann Strauss stuff and Enigma etc etc…

*sigh* I miss all the peeps who are really big into the computer games though. It's not like i've divorced them as friends. It's just that computer games are so lonely...just you and the screen. I know that you can "talk" to people on them, but that's not the same as sitting around a table laughing and joking together. Video games are not real! That's why Phase 10 is so much fun. Therefore, this school year I've made a lot of friends who like to go out and do stuff and can do so at a moment's notice. I still love the old friends along with the new. :) My interests have changed...some of the things I enjoyed last school year hold no pleasure for me this year.
