If I could turn back time.

I listened to this song for the first time in ages and the words seemed more relevant to me right now. BUT, the more I think about it, would I honestly turn that big old clock back and witness what I have witnessed, do what I have done, upset people I have upset. (Well some of them yes) but I suppose that we all have our times to be us, to do what we have to do to get by in this crazy world. It’s our pasts that make us who we are (nothing new there then) so if I changed just one minor detail, if I said no instead of yes, if I didn’t make a promise that I kept (or didn’t keep the promise) I wouldn’t (or I would) make the mistakes that are waiting in line for us all to make (or not)

As days go, this one has been different. I’ve had ups I’ve had downs, I’ve wanted to do damage to people and property, I’ve wanted to cry, scream, laugh, run away, hide everything, then I realised that it’s just a normal day in the life. Unfortunately with me it’s a bit more serious. Although I AM working on it. Anyway, it appears I am now recognised by the government I stood by and worked for for 15 years! Now to get onto the case for a roof over my head 🙂

Walking around my home town today (Asghanistan) as the local council office in Morpeth called it, I was a little more than dismayed at some of the sights I witnessed here (now f I could turn back time today, I would and I would have stayed in bed) I know it takes all sorts to make a town, a village or even a city, but it seems that my home town must be in a shallow hollow in the ground. All the Star Wars characters live here, and the Hutts are abundant.

Oh! I’ve been in touch with someone today about publishing poetry (that should put a smile on my cohort) it seems that May have a little trouble finding a publisher who is willing to take on a novice waxing lyrically about what goes on in the mind of a veteran who’s falling apart (well covered in black nasty) so anyone out there got any suggestions please feel free to furnish me with your knowledge 🙂

It’s real, I’ve been there. And now my iPad is dying so I suppose it needs to be closed down and put away. When I have more news about what’s happening I will put it out here, yes I, (not others) ME, I will put it on line as it’s MY life. (Bit f a rant, but a lot better than I could have done)

Here’s mud in your eye and a wedgey to boot, goodnight and may your god smile upon you

One thought on “If I could turn back time.

  1. Keep it up buddy! Your words reach deep and you can never know how much a word that is carefully chosen to express something about your situation can trigger a simiar word in the reader that is pertinent to their own -a bit like playing word association for grown ups! Thank you for your writing!
