Straighten Up And Fly Right

Nobody wants
somebody else
to tell ’em what
to do all the
time….

… man,
do I get that,
especially
when you’re
young.

But,
it’s hard
when you
see people
that you
love going
down
a path of
self-dissolution.

” Hey, it’s just
kicks, man. “

If you don’t
speak out,
it’s almost you
like you
didn’t care
enough to
try —

And if you do,
you could just
end up making
the whole issue
worse.

You fear that
they could go
irretrievably
spinning off
out of orbit
and into
the waste lands
of darkest space
beyond.

Or they could
dig into deeper
isolation inside
themselves.

Caring words in and
of themselves don’t
carry across certain
kinds of barricades.

We all get
ourselves
boxed in
once in
a while, and so
maybe it’s just a
phase?

You could think
and talk yourself
right into one of
those endless curves
they use to denote
infinity if you’re not
careful, and still not
be closer to the
solution .

In the end,
sometimes,
it all comes
down,
I think,
to love.

Don’t try
to solve
a person’s
problems
for them….

… just love em,
let them know
you do care,
that you do
remember,
and then
simply
have faith
and hope
that,
on their
darkest hour,
they’ll be able
to follow your
benevolent
beacon
back to
to the light.
