When I started this blog no one could see it. And I go back and forth on how self indulgent it is to write something that no one sees. Then a handful of people started to loosely follow it, which for me is the right balance between no one and hundreds which was the case with my Tumblr. I use this at times to hold myself to account and at others just as a place outside of myself to write to a slightly better standard that if absolutely no one would ever see it.

Then I thought it’d be interesting to open it up to my love. And that’s proven to be positive for me and hopefully for him.

I called it Turn the Season after the song by Fucked Up. Age old cliche of a new leaf.

I recently let some of my family see one post but obviously limiting it to that didn’t cross my mind at the time. I’ve started another blog which I’ll make up of select items from this one that I don’t mind my friends and family seeing, but i like the feeling with this one that i can write what i want.

So to manage the audience and to maintain the way that I’m using this I’ve changed the URL. It’s still Fucked Up and it’s still turn the season but it’s Like the spinning of a wheel, He will hurt but he will heal. There’s a flower in the weeds, There’s a life inside the seed.

 

Things go up and then they go down,Chase a smile with a frown.

He knows that his joy will stop,

Waiting for the other shoe to drop.

He’s a ship on the sea,

Setting sail to perfidy.

He is cold, he is warm,

He’s the peace inside the storm.
Feel the swelling of a wave,

Hear the ringing of a bell,

He’s been weak and he’s been brave,

He’s been to heaven and he’s been to hell.
See the old in the new,

See the life stretch out before you,

See a mother in the child,

There was youth behind grey eyes.

I don’t know him anymore,

He isn’t like he was before.

A stone is taken by the tide,

Another season on the other side.
Like the spinning of a wheel,

He’ll be hurt but he will heal.

There’s a flower in the weeds,

There’s a life inside the seed.
(And he said)

“I have never been as happy as I am today”,

(But then the seasons turned and the darkness came)

“So when it all falls apart

I will have peace in my heart”

(Try to think of the healing that comes out of the pain).

“Try to redeem myself for my mistakes in advance”,

(The sun will shine after the rain)

“I know that when I fall down

I’ll get another chance”

(Just wipe away the tears and try again).
We couldn’t see without the dark,

Thing’s wouldn’t end without a spark.

There is no truth without lies

And no future without memories.

He’s in the middle of the road,

From where he’s been and where he’ll go.

He’s the forest kissed by flames,

The trees die so they can grow again.
He knows that death is part of life,

He would have made that girl his wife.

Now there’s only darkness,

There is no dawn, now that she’s gone.
(And he said)

“I have never been as happy as I am today”,

(But then the seasons turned and the darkness came)

“So when it all falls apart

I will have peace in my heart”

(Try to think of the healing that comes out of the pain).

“Try to redeem myself for my mistakes in advance”,

(The sun will always shine after the rain)

“I know that when I fall down

I’ll get another chance”

(Just wipe away the tears and try again).
