Life Spans / Esperanza de vida



My life
Has been this island
This solitary place
Here since my first days
Told to sit and stay
So much lost along the way

All my time
Alone
Swimming in schools
Alone
Trusting in fools
To avoid being
Alone

So afraid
To build each new bridge
To reach each new soul
That seemed
Their hearts to pledge
That seemed
To fit the mold.

For each bridge I built
Was burnt
And its builder
Badly scarred
With shame and guilt
By hearts much too hard.

So now
So still full of fear
The tools emerge once more
Sounds of hammers in the air
New bridges raised
In every direction
With purpose fully based
In a heart filled with affection.

And some have met a cruel fate
And some still stand
And those I love and celebrate
My beautiful life spans.




Mi vida
Ha sido esta isla
Este lugar solitario
Desde mis primeros días aquí
Dijo que para sentarse y quedarse
Tanto perdido en el camino

Todo el tiempo
Solo
Natación en las escuelas
Solo
Confiando en los tontos
Para evitar ser
Solo

Tanto miedo
Para construir cada nuevo puente
Para llegar a cada alma nueva
Eso parecía
Sus corazones para prometer
Eso parecía
Para ajustar el molde.

Para cada puente construí
Fue quemado
Y su constructor
Cicatrices
Con vergüenza y culpabilidad
Por corazones muy dura.

Así que ahora
Todavía lleno de miedo
Las herramientas surgen una vez más
Sonidos de martillos en el aire
Nuevos puentes criados
En todas las direcciones
Con propósito totalmente basado en
Un corazón lleno de afecto.

Y algunos han reunido un cruel destino
Y algunos siguen en pie
Los amo y celebrar
Mi hermosa esperanza de vida.

That makes me a little sad. See I understood, for Xmas, that you had a GF/ wife, since you said you offer each other so many gifts... and now you say you're alone so I'm not sure, I'm a little confused ?
I admit that with time, my friends are disappearing : they have families, kids, they move away etc. But I never feel alone with el Banjo I admit. And internet alco makes me fell close to new people everyday. I hope you'll find nice people ;)

I sent you an IG message for more details but basically I have a heart brimming with love, so full, and I really want to share it. Amazing how difficult that is to do for some reason. Have been finding some sweet people online so far, but also some bat crap crazies too. Eek!!! You are one of the sweet ones by the way :)P

The first picture is beautiful. It has the lomography effect. Sometimes, the process of building a bridge is so delicate and when broken, leave a sense of incomplete. However, the worst are the destruction of a fully constructed bridge. Luckily we always have cats to back upon.

Could you send me IG pm for details too? I'm curious. A big bear hugz!

I agree, It's very difficult. I was really like you just a few years ago. I just didn't understand why people would reject affection, ood intentions, friendship etc... Now I sort of closed one door. I am nice to people if they're nice to me. If they don't look interested or if they look hostile, I just stop trying anymore... I guess the sad part is that : they change you :(

Lomography? Remember I have an American education. You will need to speak with smaller words :)

Yes, cat bridges are the best bet indeed. Indeed I will send you a message, sweetie. The fact that you and Mel are back to back here is accidental foreshadowing of my newest post :)

LOL! Google will back up that American education! I often find myself highlighting words in blogs I read and opening them in google. I love learning new things this way. To me, my explanation to myself for lomography is a kind of camera effect. When you google images for lomography, you will know what I mean.

Mel sounds like an awesome lady. I should visit her blog too!
