SPEAK, THINK, SEE NO EVIL Photo by Stephan

I WAS JUST b. Malin

Are you really superior? Or am I just insecure?

Have you really climbed all the "mountains"?

I mean have you really seen EVERYTHING?

And is your knowledge so vast, that there's room for no more?

Aren't YOU lucky to have DONE IT ALL!

I look at you, "your kind" you can be picked out anywhere...LARGE CROWD, or small room.

I can spot you right away, for when you "speak" you look past the person, as though "eye contact" would INSULT your intelligence.

Suddenly, "I" feel SUPERIOR to "You" for I realize why, as I watch you gaze past me. For if our eyes were to meet...I would see, what a SHALLOW, INSECURE, PERSON, "YOU" REALLY ARE!


EMPTY WORDS... by b. Mallin

Hey, what's new with you?

How are You? You really look great!

I haven't seen how long? Nah...can't be that long.

Hey, listen "call me" you have my number...Or better yet, "Facebook me".

We really HAVE TO GET TOGETHER...It's been so long.

I really wish we had TIME to talk...but I'm so RUSHED for time. But it's been great talking with you. God, I'm glad we bumped into each other.

Is anything wrong? Ah save it, you can tell me EVERYTHING when you call me. I really do wish that I had more time to talk...It's been FUN! And remember I'll be waiting to hear from you, so don't forget... FACEBOOK, or call.



What's it like to follow the sun and not to look back when day is done?

Not to have cares or worries...regrets but a few, to feel really alive, to do what you wish and make excuses to none.

When can I stop pleasing "others" and do for myself, and not give a DAMN what "THEY" think.

When will I reach that "stage" in life?

Will I know it when it comes along?

Or will I let it slip by, because "others" preoccupy my mind.

      b. Mailin,

      "When can I stop pleasing "others" and do for myself, and not give a DAMN what "THEY" think."

      The answer is today... now... you have the right view... don't worry about people who look to "upgrade" at a party. They are the weak ones because it is a selfish world full of the need for self-aggrandizement. It is an addiction that in many cases suppresses the inferiority complex that lurks below.

      Your hubs are always thought provoking. I love this! I especially like the ending in each of the works that I just read, it sums everything up. You explain human emotion and attitudes so well and you make everything understandable and yet remain so creative. You are a very good writer B, keep up the good work
