I wish one day I see them pay for wrongs they do to me and you. It won’t happen though, cuz we all know the courts are flawed. The politicians are bought. The bosses? Power-hungry. Preachers want your money. Average folk like me are taught to be grateful for whatcha got, don’t ask for alot. All we had asked was for at last acknowledge our inherent humanity. Alas, ne’er to be.

This poem describes how I felt about my Ma & how she mistreated me, my Father & then my adopted siblings….she died 30 years ago & I still am conflicted even after all these years plus counselling. All I ever wanted was for her to accept me & love me. But she was incapable of that. I often wonder if she realized just how twisted she was??
Anyway thank you for another stunnign poem!

If she was a narcissist she likely didn’t care because her only concern was herself. Sounds familiar.
Some humans are capable of such good, some such evil and selfishness.
I think we are all capable of both; the difference is in the choices we make.
I keep asking to be adopted. But I’m too old. I am potty trained & wont ask to borrow the care yet noones buying. Cheers,H
Yes, once we get a certain age, women aren’t appealing anymore except for those that would lock us in a basement and spend our pension.
And at 49 I’m not into dating old men…….Cheers,H
It would be so easy to dismiss any efforts to truly govern after such a long time of lack of empathy for the “us.” Hopefully we will be pleasantly surprised.
I have no hope left.
I understand. These have been dark days, but let’s keep hope alive in cyberspace for each other’s sake.
Still feeling hopeful after the election results? I’m not. Thanks, Joe Manchin and Mark Zuckerberg! They do more for the Republican Party than the actual party does
No kidding. Manchin sits in the wrong pew.
I think watching a Trump Republican win Virginia after stirring racism in white people while the Democrats in DC can’t do shit without appeasing one old white dude says it all.
You are far more informed of current events than I. I didn’t even know there was a governor’s election in Virginia. Thanks for letting me know. No one stirred up the racism it was already there,
How a people votes tell what’s in their heart.
I looked up the election and see how Youngkin won. “Winsome Sears will become Virginia lieutenant governor, CNN projects, becoming first female and woman of color in the office.”
Because she held a big fucking gun in her photos.
A gun in her photo????
I read she was a former Marine but I had no ideal she campaigned with a big gun. What’s the message in displaying a big gun?
I was aware Trump had black supporters but I had no idea any display this kind of loyalty toward a racist system.
I was just talking about people like her in this blog post. It mentions Dave Chappelle’s character
Clayton Bigsby, the World’s Only Black White Supremacist.
He’s not the only one. Social media is crawling with them.
It’s sad the internet and social media are both such a great inventions, but both are being used by people wanting to harm others.
It’s code talk for “I got your back, white boy.”
I had to double blink.
Thanks for making this blog. It is pretty interesting. I love exotic parrots
This is the best and most accurate post about politics.
