10 of 365 - Let Go

View On Black I know this doesn't technically fall into the time frame required to be counted as my daily photo..but in my mind..a days time is from the moment you wake up in the morning to the time you go to sleep that night...or in my case the next morning.


The only thing I really did today was hang out with Leslie. It was pretty fun. I went over to her house at about 8:00 and we chilled for a few minutes and then took off to drive around and listen to music. A little before midnight, we went back to her house and watched "The Other Boleyn Girl" and I do have to say that it was a pretty good movie...


After that we watched some Roseanne. I love that show and I love Roseanne herself! She cracks me up.. Then we YouTube'ed (?) the finale of Roseanne and got all emotional because it was way sad. Around 3:00 a.m. she finally forced me out the front door and told me I didn't have to go home, but I couldn't stay there.


Naturally, I drove around listening to music for just a bit longer and then managed to find my way home.


I attempted several times today to get my photo for 365, but I was absolutely disappointed with all of the shots I got, so I started taking more of random stuff after I got to my bed. This is what I came up with and I guess I'm satisfied enough to post it.


I was so distraught that I even had half a mind to just take a shot with my lens cap and just have a black picture just so I could have a photo up and to show how friggin frustrated I was.


I am gonna leave you with the lyrics to a very powerful and meaningful song that has been on my mind quite a bit lately. If you haven't already, take a listen to it sometime. Pay special attention to the underlined part. It's the best part.




What It's Like - Everlast


We've all seen the man at the liquor store beggin' for your change

The hair on his face is dirty, dreadlocked and full of mange

He ask the man for what he could spare with shame in his eyes

Get a job you fuckin' slob's all he replied


God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes

'Cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues

Then you really might know what it's like


Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom who said he was in love

He said don't worry about a thing baby doll I'm the man you've been dreamin' of

But three months later he said he won't date her or return her call

And she sweared god damn if I find that man I'm cuttin' off his balls

And then she heads for the clinic and she gets some static walkin' through the doors

They call her a killer, and they call her a sinner, and they call her a whore


God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes

'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose

Then you really might know what it's like


I've seen a rich man beg

I've seen a good man sin

I've seen a tough man cry

I've seen a loser win

And a sad man grin

I've heard an honest man lie

I've seen the good side of bad

And the down side of up

And everything between

I licked the silver spoon

Drank from the golden cup

Smoked the finest green

I stroked the baddest dimes at least a couple of times

Before I broke their heart

You know where it ends

Yo, it usually depends on where you start


I knew this kid named Max

He used to get fat stacks out on the corner with drugs

He liked to hang out late at night

Liked to get shit faced

And keep pace with thugs

Until late one night there was a big gun fight

Max lost his head

He pulled out his colt .45

Talked some shit

And wound up dead

Now his wife and his kids are caught in the midst of all of his pain

You know it crumbles that way

At least that's what they say when you play the game


God forbid you ever had to wake up to hear the news

'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to lose

Then you really might know what it's like

To have to lose...
