my mood swings like the pendelum in a clock
i tried to hide my feelings under my attraction for a certain lady
but even she isn't making my mood improve lately
im way past empty, my life is like a void
going about daily tasks with all the liveliness of an android
i sense deception in my perception of the world around me
i was never happy except the few months that God had found me
now im back to trying to be strong and shoulder my burdens alone
i feel like a stranger to myself, but to others im well known
i want to improve my attitude and stop the mood swings
but first i have to let go of my love for material things...
like women, weed, and wealth, things i thought i always needed
but even with those things, my heart hurts so bad it feels like its bleeding
i choose the wrong path more than a man can even envision
i've made so many mistakes i feel i need decision supervision
i try to take my time and do the the thing that feels right
but i always choose wrong and mess up spite
im going to desperation with only weed and music as medication
but even medicated im not sedated and just hide my thoughts for a moment of relaxation
its a fabrication of my heart to think ill ever be truly in love
true love seems like a trick, like the magician and the doves
when love turns out how u didn't plan, all you have left are memories
i live for love, but dont trust love...contradiction is my definition of ME
self pity is like my own personal sky, no matter what, it's always over my head
condensing my problems and mistakes..
raining down un-happiness on me, and the only umbrella is change...
to weather this inner storm i need to change a lot
my life, my decisions, my mentality, and most of outlook
i have to learn to see more positive when surrounded by negative
im like an electron, negatively charged..moving around on sheer negative energy
i need a total opposite charge to neutralize that
until i meet my whatever shape it may come....
ill keep having daymares, and continue to be midnyghts son

Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
