Telling it like it is

The only thing I know is that people have to get together and love one another

The only thing I know is that people have to get together and love one another. I mean really FEEL each other. People have to look so deep inside themselves and inside of each other that they see the SAME GOD, and we can't stop looking until we KNOW we SEE it. Just knowing it's there isn't enough because it might NOT be, you've got to look until you're OVERWHELMED with how much it is there. And when you see it, it will make you smile, it will make you feel good inside, it will make you feel like everything is going to be all right. If you don't see it then don't pretend you do, don't get phoney about it, don't get holy, don't go around talking all that garbage about we are all one and he is my brother unless you're damn sure of what you're talking about cause if you do then I am going to catch you in your silly little game and expose you for a fraud. I much prefer an honest sinner to one of these bastards, a good kick-em-in-the-ass get-it-while-the-gettins-good all-for-me-and-none-for-you Capitalist, at least I know where he stands, I know what he's after, can deal with him right on the line blow for blow cause he's SURE of what he's after and it's right out front. It's these damn sweet smiling, blessing, flower spouting paper saints that I don't trust, there's a murderer inside every one of them and they don't even KNOW it they're so full of their own goodness. Please, whatever you do, don't bless ME ............. CURSE me! HATE me! Do SOMETHING real!
