song of the day. #21

song of the day | what sandra thinks
I’ve tried to write something in this space for two hours now. I can’t find the right words.

I never should have turned on the television because it was on a regular network channel when I did… so I was slapped in the face with the news. And here in my country, that is depressing, disturbing, and upsetting as fuck. I never signed up for this. This is not the world I want to live in. Not the country I want to live in. And it sure as fuck isn’t where I want my children to grow up. It makes me sick.

I can only do my best to shield my kids from the news. And to shield myself. Right now… this is what I have… music.

Listen to it. Please. Read the words while you listen. And try like hell to find hope somewhere.

As I walk through
This wicked world
Searching for light in the darkness of insanity
I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?

And each time I feel like this inside
There’s one thing I want to know
What’s so funny about peace love and understanding? Ohhhh
What’s so funny about peace love and understanding?

And as I walked on
Through troubled times
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
So where are the strong
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony

Because each time I feel it slipping away, just makes me want to cry
What’s so funny about peace love and understanding? Ohhhh
What’s so funny about peace love and understanding?

song of the day
     The song itself starts about a minute in. The first minute is just a little humor.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  3. Awesome pick. I’m down with everything you just said. It’s all so mind-blowing. Hard to even process, that this all even happening. I mentioned in another post this morning, that the federal court system is our best friend. They will block and argue that he cannot wildly-milky and fuck around with threats against Constitutional rights. Checks and balances. Put in place to prevent tyranny. Keep the faith. It’s gonna be a fight with these buffoons, but one worth having.

    It’s hard not to panic, but Beach is right about checks and balances. Not only that, he can’t continue to act unilaterally on such weighty issues. The more bizarre he acts, the more people will turn against him, too. Strange times, terrible times.
