Mudcat is not the place to come for solace or a friend. Cruelty, criticism, debate and one-upmanship, yes. Kindness, no. Sorry Ed

I don't believe in a god that can make everything better. You look for that with loved ones, and if you don't have any of those, you try to figure out what you can do for yourself. Find out what you love and focus on that, because, in my opinion, external things, religion and other people, can and will let you down. It doesn't even mean they did anything wrong.

Ignore this or post on topic. I swear, if someone came in here and said they were thinking about suicide, a semi-regular Mudcat regiment of sanctimonious, knee-jerk offended, judgmental, know-it-all assholes would egg him on. Either that or bitch about the fact he posted.

I miss compassion...
I miss people being able to shut the fuck up when they don't have anything positive to say. Then again, I don't think Mudcatters were ever any good at stifling the urge to attack when they smelled blood.



I Think It's Going To Rain Today    (in the DT)

Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen smiles to chase love away
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
Think I'll kick it down the street
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
To help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today
