Of hopes and high hopes

Filed under: Life,Sobriety — Teal @ 1:14 am

Sometimes in life we always think a 1000 times before making a sound decision,wondering how and when it will affect our day to day lives why we even end up wasting time thinking so much for something that is as visible and obvious as green pastures to a hungry herd of cows !

And yet somehow, somewhere down the line your gut instincts screw you up in the middle of a thoughtful and steadfast process of decision making and you just think to yourself WTF? [Yeah, going by most junta around me, I am sounding a lot like Scorcese’s dialogue writer lately.]

But there is one amazing thing that we all possess in our systems that we never seem to find an expalanation for.

Hope.

Sometimes I wonder if Hope is just a mechanism that people end up using to explain and justify all their feuk ups on a day to day basis? Or a long term decision?

“I am hoping for a change of work”

“I am hoping for him to come back”

“I am hoping for promotion”

So more often than ever, do our hopes end up becoming vain hopes or just high hopes too lofty to ground themselves in the plane of reality?

” Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun

Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
Do they still meet there by the Cut

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before times took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
When friends surrounded
The nights of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide
At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There’s a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we’ve been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter”

Yeah, overdose of High hopes by floyd. Big time overdose.

  4. toamna trece-acum…,invelita-n fum …
    trandafirii mint ,visurile mor….
    toamna mi te ia-
    vis stingher ,cu ea
    lacrima de dor ,
    strop de margarit
    trandafirii mor …visurile mint
