A day in the life of a Steemian~ Part 3

in dtube •  2 months ago



Click! One wrong move can change the course of the day. Click! Click! Two wrong moves can make your day ridiculously more frustrating. In a split second that calm sleepiness is replaced by the feeling of an extra heartbeat. Your body already knows you are in for a fight with technology and might. Who will come out the victor is already set in stone. One doesn't walk away from the rabbit hole your brain glitch just made.

Watching the perfect window of time slip away, click by click, raises your heart beat out of control. Inside you know it's not the act itself that brings on frustration ready to explode. Control becomes the key. Once again you had control up until you clicked. Your path down a side road becomes the night.

The detour, while unplanned, is enough to set you off. Must everything follow its own path? You watch from the outside while she fights to be in control of one tiny bit of course in her life. You listen to your own advice. Stick out your tongue while making the best of the situation at hand.

Chipping, chipping away at the problem. Finding a solution becomes larger than life. Searching for some form of control. Nothing comes but darkness and noise. The perfect window of time has gone by. Breathing becomes labored. Fresh air, a must. All you want was to play in the sun for a little while.

Assessing the situation one last time you make your own shortcut you hope will be the last. Throwing out what 'should be' for 'what is', is the key. Forging new paths where there were none becomes the excitement of the day.

Click! You won.



Devils Island


The light that fills my lonely cell,
Is blocked out by the key,
That locks the door to this hell,
The place they wanted me.
Time's racing like the wind,
Execution's near,
Oh lord, I wait for death,
And, yes, I have no fear.
I recall that night, my every breath,
And, step along the way.
Closed my eyes, walking,
As danger paved the way.
The devil, and the darkness
Let her evil wander free
And, here on Devils Island,
The final stop for me.

Devils Island, Devils Island.

Oh, there is no escape,
The sea is full of sharks.
The tide takes you away, and
Smashes you on the rocks.
The sun is shining,
But feel not today,
It's warmth, it's dying,
And fading away.

Devils Island, Devils Island.

Oh, hear the call,
From the grave beyond.
Oh, so pernicious,
Her soul it creates song.
As there is no man, that is
Here upon the earth,
Able to terminate our
Noisome will since birth.

~Megadeth



CliffsNotes: I forgot what I was doing and didn't download all of a program. The program doesn't work now. I ended up sitting in the car, in the garage, in the dead of night, recording the soundtrack above on a tablet. It was the only place there was quiet and the only device that picked up my voice.

Moral: Never Give Up!

Thank you so much :D HUGS

Who will come out the victor is already set in stone.

Yeah, it'll be you. Because you don't give up and there is always a way. Maybe not exactly what you wanted, sometimes with more frustration that you don't need to be happening, but still, you'll be victorious. 😎

It's good to listen to Snook advice - she's pretty damn wise after all. 😘
So are you ready to turn your car into a traveling studio yet? (Slammin' & Jammin' Snookmobile has a nice ring to it...😜)

And you know that you're killin' these covers, right? See, the story behind what's happening when you do them sounds like a 'Behind the Music' special. (And everyone loves being able to peek through the car window.)

·

they are getting harder LOLLLLLLL

and Thank YOU!!! No, I didn't know so it is wonderful to hear........

don't yell....... I'm still just me LOLL

HUGS

Oh, there is no escape,
The sea is full of sharks.
The tide takes you away, and
Smashes you on the rocks.
