The True Purpose Of Industry















And I've tried to find happiness in a bigger TV, a car and a watch. I've tried to find happiness in power over others and the respect of the people around me. And I appreciate your patience, while you stand here, right in front of me.

Waiting for me to come to my senses.

Ah, people consistently forget that happiness is internal. Sigh.

Thank you for your words.

Been feeling very spiritual lately, but it's all too easy to get caught up in the rat race once again. This really spoke to me!

Interesting spin on happiness. In my opinion, happiness is a warm gun. That, or five-colored crayons.

I cant help but wondering why we have to wait? We put our needs on hold for nothing...waiting hopelessly...Maybe I am not worth your time...sometimes I wish you could put me out of this misery..

And I think I get it, I think I know. While this all might have seemed like a lie, a truth untold. It's the ambivalent nature of it that took it's toll and eats one up inside. An endless feedback loop of self-indulgent nonsense that tore at the fiber of my being. I've played all the parts in my head. A white devil, an angel in disguise. I don't want what you aren't willing to give, I can't take what's yours and in your head. So yes, you are right in your findings of me. I can only be what you make of me, how you've figured things that I can't even see myself. My senses taken from me, inhibitions stripped away. Greedy for the truth that was sitting in front of me the whole time.

I've come back from the dead to fix the mess I've made, to take the shame I had away. My senses are fixed, my heart rewired. I wish all the best for and for me. Even if we never see each other again.

You owe me nothing, you've already given too much. I don't even know what I was expecting, but I got more than I deserve.

I can relate perfectly.

Beautiful. Thank you, man.

Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, & gratitude.

What you become, really is more important than what you get. When we leave this planet, all we take with us, is our capacity to love.

i've tried to find happiness in dinner dates and pretty little napkins. she smiled like a 5th grader and smelled like chlorine.

zonedin said...

All I ever want is to live in a little shack by the sea...no car, no tv...just you and me.

I've told you this before...I'm so tired of waiting.

Again.

Maybe I am happy and just don't know it..

lost.in.thought said...

it plagues me how you always know. i tell myself this everyday and here you are reminding me that i am not alone. happiness is not something you find, its something you allow yourself to accept. If only i could figure out how to get from where I am to where I should be. And if only i knew where I should be in order to be happy.

Bank isn't only for lending money...its magic for what I am going through with my body...wondering if it is a sign for you or if it is ironic to you?

Although you think i lied to you and broke your heart countless times, I did not and never will...some of the things i described to you might seem that i made it up like all the coincindence..I did not and thats what had happened, whether you believe it or not..theres nothing I can say more about it..

Anonymous said...

Write to me everyday, okay? Love I will do the same...I MISS YOU very bad....take care of yourself for me, okay? Just say so even you are doing that for someone else...Id rather you lie to me than tell me the truth...waiting hopelessly

I see what messages you think are safe here now.... you are such a sweetheart and bastard too. i am going to the group now and will stop at DES to check on my application for food stamp and SSO to submit my application for the benefits. Hopefully itll be approved the 1st time. I was told a lot of people get approve the 3rd and 4th time they apply. Is there any way you can help me? You are such a S. O. B.

Crossing signals. I can't tell who is who or which out of the mix is you. So I sigh a lost little sigh and wish I could tousle the hair of you. Oh, and kiss you right now too.

I will always wait for you, because you are my world. But how much longer do I have to wait, my dear? Why can't you see that the answer is so simple? You don't need all these things. We could be so happy, just you and me.

I get this. Somewhow these words, your words, have evoked comfort within me.

Anonymous said...

Some of your words really scared me. Not those caused tummy problems, but those cause brain problems. Love/hate.

I want to wait for you, I do but love always comes with some impossible conditions attched.
Am I so selfish or just really really unlucky?
Life was so much easier and I was dysfunctional waiting for someone to save me.
Everyone just wants to be a hero or they need a hero.
I just need a bit of love and poetry.
Please

Here I am, another random adding to the confusion.
I don't let my kids eat candy and they don't talk.

I don't have magic powers, anymore. I let the nothing take them from me.

I have the words that I love and hate so much. I have them and I want to give them to you. But my insides hold on to them so tightly, not wanting to give them to anyone else. But I don't know how to be certain of you anymore. I have a feeling you don't know anymore, either.

Let's try something different, what do you say?

Anonymous said...

Yes, something different would be great....Candy...I cant promise.I will probably let them...

alessandra said...

Oh great!

Hello! A video that has a message similar to your blog. This guy secretly wrote and recorded a song for his girlfriend that moved across the country. He wants it to get to her, but the catch is that no one can directly send it to her.
