I Will Be Who I Was ( Blues Theme)

I Will Be Who I Was ( Blues Theme)


Oh Well Have we not already been here before !!! The you don't have to be old to be wise or the too old to die young.

The dancing drunken lullabies, the aches and pains with so little gains

The white buffalos and the dogs of war

The narrative who rhymes with hard times.


And again I am talking to myself since I have appeared to have parked my brain on a shelf.


I am so bored when I sit with my cup made of cardboard

Its not so much the absence I despise but the intelligence and its silence

Would you be ever so kind not to act as if you were fucking blind

I am no target for your market, all I want is to be fed

So stopping being afraid.


Who is the bleedin' witch that have turned my life into a faceless bitch


Maybe I should get a hot cup of early dementia under my favorite acacia

Now this wont probably stop the fever or the fact that I forgot to remember

That life has not always been like this for ever.


I cannot recall the fall or if it was me that was bold, the only thing I know is you don't really want to be old when its gettin'  cold


Sometimes I wish I could lament about the crowds on the pavement

But I wont blame the folks and their fast walks

Even those who accidently kick my hand written name with a chalk

Even those  who don't do small talk 

Whereas this is decembermas and even if I am a little bit anxious

I am going to wish all of them

A Happy Christmas

#16 ah thanks @Jim Murray compliment much appreciated , its a complex and complicated equation for many obviously those involved and the others like us , don't think there is a right or wrong as I often say people do what they can not always what they want …..

The best compliment I can muster is that I felt that deeply. It's something I think about from time to time. But fortunately it hasn't gotten to the point where I get stuck there.

#12 We need to point that out to the powers that be convincingly. There can be no larger network than that of the government if it means reaching our far and penetrating deep.

Even the NGOs of the world need to focus on these key issues more than on anything else. It is the apathy of the common / comfortable folk that ensures there is no check on these willful negligences. And that is the big picture.

Coming right down to the neighbourhood, yes indeed there is much that a few like-minded folks could do for the underprivileged and deprived locally if they put their minds and hearts to it.

#11 @Praveen Raj Gullepalli I would concur to a large extent political will is not abundant when it comes to solve that issue and many similar others so what do we do in the meantime ? I believe only a coordinated action plan can solve this now there is no political will to draft one let alone execute on it...:-(
