Things are never what they seem!

September 11, 2014

Hey yall,

Today I was browsing on Facebook and I noticed a few people putting up statuses and pics and all happy-go lucky and some of them I know that their life is not all that good..so why pretend that all things are so good.  I am not saying to be a Debbie downer and be all negative on Facebook but don't pretend to be running the world, when you know you ent..which is why I said to myself things are never what they seem.

I don't think social media is a place to publicize all your business but I don't think it is also a place to be pretentious either. Remember what goes on in the dark always comes out in the light..so continue flashing all them good things you purport to have; eventually people going to know that it is a lie.

I found this beautiful piece (from a song) by Bob Nolan:

Things are never what they seem.

A blackberry’s red when it is green.

The night owl says “who” when he doesn’t much care

If it’s me or you or the feller out there.

You see that things are never what they seem.

Things are never what they seem.

The bright moon won’t fall without his beam.

My pony says “neigh” but he don’t mean “no”,

He’s just sayin’ “hey”

And he don’t mean “hello”.

You see that things are never what they seem.

Things are never what they seem

And you’re not asleep, but what is a dream?

A river can run but he hasn’t got legs,

A carpet can lay but, tell me, where are those eggs?

You see that things are never what they seem.

So people be yourself and stop pretending to be something that you are not!

xoxoxo
