Alone 2010

All these years I thought what you gave out, you got back
If you loved someone you should set them free to choose
I believed that by understanding people,
You received understanding back

But it’s all bullshit, in truth, the more you give out,
The more people take, the more you listen and
Fail to condemn, but try to understand
The less acceptance there is for you

And when you set people free to choose,
They will always choose the one thing –
To break your heart. So I’m more selective now
There’s only one or two people I love unconditionally.


About titflasher

Writer, blogger, animal activist, people activist, dream-catcher maker, mommy to 9 cats and a roving band of foxes ... Blog name comes from my father's suggestion for the title of my autobiography ... after my mother's and my awful habit of flashing whenever the security police took our photo in the dark old days of apartheid South Africa. I love nature, including creepy crawlies and people, find life fascinating and frustrating and have two terrible weaknesses - nictotine and animals in distress ... can't abide the latter situation and can't give up the former. I'm Pagan but not anti-Christian, funny but quite serious, light-hearted but can be annoying. I am warm-hearted until someone p*sses on me too much, then I get soggy and even. Feel free to link me but all the words on these pages is copyrighted, so copy it and take the credit and I will find you and slap you upside the head, hard. The blog is probably best read via category as there is loads on here already, and I just got started :-)
