"Redemption"
 

Can a bad person, turn out to be good? Can a person redeem themselves? Maybe, I had a uncle who was a son of a bitch. He was abusive to my aunt, wasn't a good father. On some payday he would gamble his check and lose all his money , and my aunt wouldn't see him for several day. My aunt had to pay all the bills. My aunt must have really loved this man! She had four kids with him, and never filed for divorce. She was his rock when he was down and out, she always took him back when he left, and when he was sick she nursed him back to health. There was one time he admitted that he didn't deserve such a loving woman. Years later she died, and he inherited everything she owned, two cars, a little money and a house, along with the life insurance policy. Family members was upset, and thought he shouldn't have gotten anything. Later in years, my dad died. He was a good man, good father and everyone loved him. He was 6yrs younger than my uncle. I was upset, why would God take a good man and let a horrible man remain alive? I look at life as unfair, I was hurt. But as time passed by, my uncle started to change. He gave up drinking, cussing, and started to go to church once in a while. His child, my cousin moved in with him. He tried to reach out to the other children, but my oldest cousin refused to acknowledge him. His health start to deteriorate, so my cousin was there to take care of her dad. At times, I talked to other family members and they said he did 180 degree turned. I couldn't believe it, with in a year he died. Then I thought about it, my dad was a good man, and did all he had to do so god took him, and my uncle was spared and given a chance to redeem himself. It took much longer for my uncle, compared to my dad. So the question is? Can we be redeem? Maybe if we live long enough, we can!

First of all, go to school, get a trade! I tell my grandson son all the time. I tell him that he won't want to be in his 50s doing a back-breaking job. Working in the transportation field, there is a millions of ways you can get hurt! So when there's big load they suppose to sent two driver together. The lead for the driver was strong on safety and concern for their safety.

Now he's in charge of the drivers and the stock keeper. Once they gave him a higher grade, his concern for safety decreased. Safety wasn't a priority anymore. We have a director, that preach safety in her meeting, but she only concern about getting all ticket done regardless and the Matrix system. This is a system her and a few other put together to get tickets done within a certain time limit, regardless or weather.

Also regardless, people are sick or equipment is down. If there's bad weather, he once allowed his people to stop work and come back to the yard. But now, he believe if you out, finish the job first. Then maybe come back in. Now with big tickets, he'll send two people, but they in their own truck and working different areas. He don't cut no slack, and not going to lift a finger to help.

He turn into a Diva and he's our Union Rep. It's all about the numbers and customers. I guess, when you given money, you got to dance to their music! We had a man who was the safety man for all of Logistics, they promoted him to a manager , he's sing a different tune too! So my question is , "Safety first"? I'm sure they would say, "Not if they putting money in my pocket"!

"I'm alone".

The other day, I was alone in my room. I turn on the radio, they was playing a song by LL Cool J. The song called, I need love. Right now I don't have anyone in my present, so I was debating on contacting someone from my past. Do I want to go there? The few I knew wasn't good people. There were a few toxic relationships in there. So to get companionship, after going 1000 steps forward, to I go 1500 step backwards? I pass.

A while back I decided to start dating someone, that we can complement each other. Some who's not always in .need. I don't mind helping, but refuse to be used. So now I decided to date someone with a job, or at least a good conversation. Even though, I don't need anything from them, or asked for anything. I felted, like they fell, they taking low for being with me.

I dated some with Masters degrees or someone who has their own business. There were some who lived on the wealthier part of town, and one who made 6 figures, she was the 6 figured chick!. To be honest, I tell them where I worked and what I did for a living. I tell them my education level. Then after that, I might hear from them once or twice. But never a second date!

We eventually delete each other's number and more on. So I do get lonely. But, maybe me being alone is God's plans? I don't want some who only wants me for what I can do for them. Or be someone's charity case. At times I visit my family, they got their own lives. So sometimes I write and listen to music. I should learn how to play my Guitar. I have two, I should learn how to play one. I got to learn how to enjoy me! For me is all I have. For, "I'm alone".

Years ago a lot of years ago. I told a friend a joke. He laughed, it was funny. Then a week later I told the same joke. He made a comment, "Didn't I hear that one before"? That stuck on my mind! I have a friend who believe in quick money. Buy low, sell high or other ways to make a dollar. This is his way of making money without punching a clock, his wife is furious!

She said, she been trying to get a job and hold on to it! He love to run the streets. I known him 30 years now. I remember when he was a student intern. he got a good government job and figured out, there is more money hustling. He left New Mexico , and when to Arizona and got married. A few week ago, I talked to his wife. The first thing she said, he's not the man I married.

She want him to get a job and keep it, and she threating to leave him. So when I talk to him, he said, the same thing! That in a few month he'll find a job. I told g him, "Didn't I hear this one before"? These word just came out of my mouth. Through a friend, I met another person who was down on his luck. This friend found a place for him to stay. He would stay and take care of this elderly man.

The deal was, he would get a job, pay $200 a month and help clean the house, cut grass and do things around the house. This would 1997, in 2007, he crashed at my place for a night. He said the same thing he did 10 years earlier, that he's in a rut, he going to get a car, have money in his pocket and buy a house. Of course, you know what I said! "Didn't I hear this one before"? He has potential!

His situation haven't changed a bit. The last few months, I thought I need a change! Or see what's out there. There was some day that was a carbon copy of times before. I guess I got content on how things are. Last weekend, I followed the same routine and was thinking about my future. Without speaking, I though in my mind, "Didn't I think of this before?

"The perfect day".

Just imaging you wake up next to the one you adore. You make love to her many times and afterwards. She make you the best breakfast ever! She later start her day, while you start yours. You have an appointment to get stuff done on your car. And on the way you catch every green light. Green light all the way, baby!

You get there, they look at your car, and it's something minor and they don't charge you a penny. On the way back home, you check your lottery ticket, and you have the winning numbers, and on this day. Everything that could go right, will go right, This would be "The perfect day"!

Hell, I'll be happy to have a good day! Not being negative, but my day, isn't always a good day. But there are some good things might happen. There are days, bad things shows it's ugly head, sometimes things get resolved. But why doe's it has to happen in the first place? I know my day won't be excellent or great. but I'll settle for good or even, decent.

Maybe no mishaps? Even times when I go to work. I know I suppose to do a certain task, but at times there are changes to the work schedule. So when I show up, I don't know what to expect. I have to adjust and try to deal what lies ahead. There are times when things don't go perfect. My attitude now, is "Shit happen" better that stressing.

Not sure if the perfect day really exist? But to me if I can have a day without minor mishaps, and something good happens, and my day is decent, then to me This would be "The perfect day"!

"Midas touch".

Since I was young, this is something I wished upon. a tender age, I would sing songs as I was on a stage. But of course I didn't have the voice. It wasn't the singing but the lyrics was my choice. I would listen to what they had to say, and I hope one day, I can do it that way. First of all, Smokey was my man, even at a young age I was a fan.

There was many who came along the way, and they all had good things to say. The Beatles was also on my mind, there was a group well before their time. Lionel Ritchie and the Commodores, when you mentioned their name, you didn't have to say a single thing.

There are so many out there, they have talent like no one can't compare. Marvin wrote songs that make you think, while Thorogood wrote songs about his favorite drink. Barry White and Babyface wrote songs of love. When the Staples sings wrote the song, "Ill take you there. They was talking about the Heaven above.

For whatever reason, the song is better if the lyrics has meaning. There are many that loves a good beat, but for me great lyrics would get me out of my seat. What I'm trying to say, this is what I pray! I wish I had the Midas touch! Everything I write turns to gold! Smokey, Marvin, The Beatles, Lionel, Phil, Barry, Madonna, Dolly, they all have the Midas touch!

"There are many who rather have the "Y".

Every several months I miss a day or two from work. I say to myself, I need a mental health day. Because of my depression, a day or two off a new man. So when off, I know the why! Anxiety is one factor, being paranoid and being around crowds. An a couple of days off always help me regroup. This is the "Why"! But I want to know the "Y"!

The "Y" is me being born with depression? "Y" I was dealt the hand I was dealt, and why couldn't I had a better hand? Another situation , I knew a man who would get a job, for some reason he'll get fired. He'll get unemployment, he always have a roommate. the 1st couple of months he'll pay his half of the and every month after that he'll pay less.

His motivation in life is sleep around hours a day. Times he's not sleeping, he also love to eat. Also he's an alcoholic, so he's also drinking. He would lie on the couch, eating, drink or sleeping. He don't want nothing else in life but to do them 3 things. Sleep, eat and drink. So when people get tired of him, they throw him out, and he go to the homeless shelter.

He'll be there a while, someone would take a chance on him, he'll get a job, and then the process would start again! "The Why" for him, He just wanted 3 simple things in life. Food, Alcohol and a couch. He said, he has room mate, because the landlord going to get on them when rent not . He feel whatever he give towards rent, he's helping out. Besides, he told me he's a lazy fuck. I agree, he was!

His "Y" would be. not being born with tons of money , and owning a liquor store adjacent with a restaurant. He would have an upstairs with a toilet, couch, a table. After his hours of sleep, he would come downstairs to get two cases of beer, a couple of bottles of liquor, plenty of food and go upstairs eat and drink, and pass out! While others run his business.

The last one is a little more serious! A friend of mines girlfriend had an accident and died. He never told me how she died. But she died. the "Why" accidents happens, and in life, we are born and eventually all of us is going to die. Maybe the accident could had been prevented, but in life when it's our time, it's our time! In this would people are born everyday.

So, in life people die, then other's can live. Then they die, for the next generation of people to come. His "Y" is, "Y" people don't live forever? No one dies! No funeral homes, or cremations, we be like Cats with extra lives. The world would be way over populated, we would have take care people over 1000s of years old. People never die would be a good thing, but yet a bad thing!

After talk to many people, "There are many who rather have the "Y"!
