Default True Colors


watching the fray, I found my head spinning
hypocrisy is the order of the day, voices dinning

loving all. I canít love you because you disagree with me
you are evil and not human, it is perfectly clear for all to see

we all know it is wrong to taunt, ridicule and to most of all bully
unless, of course, my side does so. Then it is wit, pointing out the silly.

do as I say not as I do because I am me and clearly smarter and better than you.
the election is over, it did not go as I wished so Iíll tantrum until my side gets its due.

if all of that doesnít get me the result that I feel was my right by my birth
I will continue to act out, poison everyone around me for all I am worth

Iím the one from who the world was created, I know that is so true.
All that You have should be given to me and all taken from you.

It is all so very simple and to me quite clear
I should get everything because Iím here.

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Money is a good yardstick to use to determine one's character. Though judging others is supposed to be off-limits, I believe it is sound judgment to find out what makes a person tick before he or she cons the pants off you. Be grateful when you lend a person five- or ten-dollars and they stiff you. Consider yourself lucky to find out a person's true colors at such a bargain price. I don't have to tell you people have been taken to the cleaners by the con artists. You understand this well.

Then there's the flip side of money, or lack of it, which allows you to discover just who your friends really are. I consider it a blessing to be broke at times in your life because when you are down, your true friends will be revealed to you. A dog is a loyal creature; it cares not what you have in your pockets. It will follow you even when you are broke . So too will a true friend! When you are broke and someone is around you, it is a good indication that person is a true friend.

All these words are meaningless. Action determines true colors, especially actions involving money. True generosity rules the roost. If you know one person who stuck with you through difficult times, consider yourself fortunate. For talk does not make friendships ... actions do. (My take)

I mean what's going on here. I don't sign on for two months, and I come back expecting a bunch of good writings from my favorite members, but it's all saturated with the election.

I posted some very tasty lyrics sung by Ms Cindi Lauper; does that count?
