Leave The Drama For T.v.
When We Have To Say No More
We are vicitms of the television
Day after day we come home from our real lives and then turn on what used to be called the little black box
Now it is full size and larger than life
Sometimes there is little difference
With the special effects,surround sound and three d,high resolution
No wonder people are drawn to the action and the drama
It is better than real life
The problem comes about when the fine line is crossed
Fantasy and fiction become real and imaginary becomes real life
So now you can see why three hours or more a day of t.v. has some effect
We tell the children not to watch to much t.v. but who is telling us
You don't think what I say is true
Try a week of no t.v.
See how easy you can be unglued at the seems
Finding fault with little things that don't mean so much
I have seen so many holidays come and go
Where we celebrate all kinds of things
I don't think we will ever see
Give the t.v. a rest holiday
Find something else to do
Some people will be alright on certain nights
As long as their favorite shows aren't on
Not a sports event or a late night special
Think of all the options we have
Net flicks,red box, and don't touch my d.v.r.
For me it use to be rent a movie from Blockbuster , Movies and More or Avenue a local movie store
Friday night at the movies isn't for kids anymore
When we bring drama into our lives constantly
We accept it openly
Then we think it is the way life shoud be
Always funny and exciting and sometimes crazy
Just like we see every day of our lives on the boob tube
It was nicked named that for a reason
You don't have to think
It does everything for you
I am the first to say wow that was so much fun
Lets do it again and again
Then it becomes a habit
We no how hard habits are to break
Scientists say it almost takes almost a month to break a habit we have
That is along time for anyone to wait for a change
So as your day plays out like a movie
See what drama you have ?
Is it real ?
Do we encourage it and engage in it constantly
Welcome it and adore it
Has it become part of our lives and the lives of people we know
Keep an eye on the events that shape our lives
Is it productive or destructive ?
Do we handle it or does slowly cover us like leftovers turned to mold
You hold the clicker that turns on your world
From inside or out
Where is our life going ?
Am I jumpy or a little hot headed ?
Do I snap at the littles thing ?
Is it the way the world is or is it the way I see my world ?
Do I curse when things don't go as I planned ?
Do I do more sitting and watching and lots of gossiping ?
Change those things that bother us
Enjoy the things that make our life incredible
Are we just actors and actresses and life is our stage
Maybe just maybe we are people who love and have learned how to love everyone a little more
