FEELIN LIKE CHARLIE BROWN

so i got laid off today
after 5 months of attempting to be a normal working stiff


god doesnt want this for me clearly


he (she?) is trying to tell me something

maybe this isnt for me...

i havent neglected music . its the only thing that keeps me sane , but i have to be honest and say i havent put as much of myself into it as i should.

we all want to be secure , we all want to feel safe... we all want stability in our lives

and ladies and gentlemen none of that exist in the music business , not unless ur kanye west or somebody

and even then your future isnt promised..

im not gonna lie and say im not afraid
this shit is scary , not having a consistent income

the economy aint exactly peachy keen right now

i think ill be ok .....

send ur positive thoughts please and thank u

from inside my head....

"you're a lot more broken then
most girls that i know " , thats what he said
thats right , its a lie , i do it all for show
lets not waste time talkin bout repairs
i need not to be fixed, guess thats the glitch
when strangers meet to kiss
and words slip from there lips
just close ur eyes and


dont tell me your name
frankly , dont care
we all look the same
when there's not light in here
i just want to be blind
i prefer not to see

any thing about u
and i will not show u me

i fucked up....

two years ago

i remember ...

staring at the sun
cuban sandwich shops
bell hooks
believing in drea smith
crayon colored mix cd's
your coffee and cigarettes
daily show when we got home ( back to your place)
late night conversations about everything
falling asleep next to u
waking up next to u
poetry
music
love
the first time we talked
the last time we talked
you trying to put me back together again
me being to broken to realize it
finally feeling understood
but
not being ready..

i hope u read this


love
drea



THE DAY MY CHILDHOOD DIED....



August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009


one of my heroes died yesterday ,
i honestly feel like my childhood ended 

i remember......

*trying to lean forward like the smooth criminal video
*moonwalkin in my socks
*wanting mj's outfit from the BAD video
*having to watch the making of thriller to not be afraid of it anymore
*wanting to ride the rollercoaster in leave me alon
*askin my mom can i wear a white t shirt and black pants for my 1st grade pic
*spending saturdays watching moonwalker and all of my mj music videos on vhs
*reenacting "the way you make me feel" with my cousin brandon ( he was michael and i was the girl he followed around.....we were 3)
* the day "remember the time " premiered
* trying to figure out which "diana" he was talkin about it
* trynna call mtv to win one of the guitars from the "scream " video

and sooo much more...

we miss you mike  ,  thanks for leaving an amazing legacy





i leave you with one of my favorite performances of his :)
