I got a big dose of the “sads” today. Getting very broken down emotionally by the shittiness of the world (in a nutshell). I’m a child of a hippie mother, I have my breaking points – and the events of the U.S. Capitol last week have taken a serious toll on me.
When I heard the words of Cat Stevens’ song “Peace Train,” today, which go as follows:
“Why must we go on hating? Why can’t we live in bliss?”
Yeah, I straight up LOST IT. I started bawling like a baby needing to be changed, fed, and whatever else it is babies need to have happen when they fucking bawl (and more often than not, wake up their parents). I couldn’t take any more…
I listened to this on my way home from work, had a nice dose of “sad,” hugged my husband when I got home, then collected myself and started acting like a fucking adult again.
Seriously, though – I think our country might be seeing the beginnings of a civil war (which really isn’t that civil). And I don’t know what to make of that…I don’t want to be a part of that kind of historical significance.
