Become a Fan
life got you down-something on your chest?....
something on your chest?
Something on your chest? what could a doctor?
say...does it hurt here?....pressure?.....
What could a psychologist say-use worry beads-swing at
your beanbag-tell me!!.....
It'S in the air all around...... Maria , maria ,,, I'll never
stop saying maria.... But I dont knOW anyone fitting that
description in the Colorodo mountains or in downtown New york.
It's just something i can't define--big, heavy and
valuable.. do you have any suggestions?,ideas.......
IS LIFE NATURALLY LIKE THIS-A DOCTOR SAYS SO, THAT IT
IS-THE GIRL IN THE COLORADO MOUNTAINS LECTURE'D ME TEN YEARS
SAYING SO-ANTHING BIG, HEAVY, AND VALUABLE AGREE-LIFE IS
LIKE THAT. EVERYBODY NOT ONLY HAS THE SAME PROBLEMS THEY
EACH HAVE THEIR OWN PROBLEMS.
THAT WAS SOME WHILE AGO-TODAY AFTER A LIFE OF CONTORTED
SELF EXAMINATION AND ADJUSTMENT - I HAVE FOUND OUT. AM TOLD
BY ALL, I THINK DIFFERENTLY-YOUR JUST DIFFERENT-BUT I DISAGREE-I NEVER LEARNED ANYTHING BECAUSE ALL THOSE PEOPLE, LECTURERS, THE BIG, HEAVY, AND RICH WERE WRONG-MY LIFE WAS EXPERIENCING SOMETHING DIFFERENT
NOR MY COMPLAINTS-DESPITE APPEARANCES TO THE METICULOUS-THE SAME AS SEEN IN THE EYES OF OTHERS
IN MY SHOES AS i WALK IS A GRAIN OF SAND-IN NO MATTER WHAT I BUY, THE BRAND OF SHOES OR SIZE, IS A GRAIN OF SAND-THAT RUBS ON MY FOOT-THE SHOEMMAKER INSISTS HE REMOVED IT-ANYONE ELSE TO TRY THEM ON DONT FEEL IT-WHEN I WEAR IT-THERES A SORE ON MY FOOT-AND ...THE DOCTOR CANT FIX IT.. THE PSYCHIATRIST GOT A LINGERING SORE IN HIS SIDE FROM IT, THE GIRL MARIA IN
THE MOUNTAIN-SHE SAW IT-THE BIG, THE HEAVY AND THE RICH, THEY SAW IT -IT
JUST LINGERS ON, AND ALL ARE SORE FROM IT-A LINGERING SORE ON MY FOOT ONLY AND NO WHERE ELSE-
NOTHING TO SAY OF IT-
LIFES JUST LIKE THAT-RIDING HIGH IN APRIL DOWN IN MAY-THE GIRLS ONLY THERE IN MAY-THE DOCTOR..THE BIG, THE HEAVY AND THE WEALTHY......? I'M THE ONLY ONE THERE ALL THE TIME-ANYONE
TO WEAR MY SHOES DONT FEEL NO GRAIN OF SAND-AND ANYONE CAN SEE THE SORE ON MY FOOT ANY TIME.
SO THEY ALL STOOD IN MY SHOES AND ALL THERE IS, IS A SORE ON MY FOOT NONE OF 'EM HAVE OR HAVE ANY THING NEW TO SAY
BUT I'VE LEARNED NOT TO COMPLAIN--BUT I'VE GOT A DAMNED SORE ON MY FOOT.-NOT EVEN A FOOT DOCTOR WHO SARCASTICALLY
IGNORED MY HEAD ALTOGETHER (WHEN I DANCE MY FOOT...THE
RADIO MAKES ME...RAINY WEATHER...ITCHES PRONOUNCEDLY AT THE METROPLOLITAN ICE SKATING RINK(WHEN IT HURTS I LIMP AND
EACH TIME MY WALLET AND MONEY SEEMS MISSING, STOCK MARKET SEEMS TO CYCLE THE SAME WAY AS MY UPS AND DOWNS(WHICH MY PROFESSOR SAY IS A NATURAL PHENOMONOM FROM GENERAL PUBLIC
PROBLEMS -BABY BOOOMERS). TIME GETS LOST IN SUMMMER AND NOT
WINTER AND NO OTHER TIMES...THE PEDIATRIST WANTED CASH ON THE BARREL
HEAD TO GET RID OF IT. THE MAFIA PUT A PRICE ON MY PET DOG WHO AT ONE TIME WAS TRIPPING THEM UP AT SOMETHING- SHE ALSO LIMPS WITH A SORE ).
A GRAIN OF SAND NO BIGGER THAN A poor GRAIN OF SAND on a thin, poor mans foot could shake no earth less it leave a sore elsewhere...can it.?..they was always down on
me so who'd know my sore foot from a sore doctors office,quiet girl, or college professsor who, less than one millon years old, has a sore himself on his other foot himself
thats not the same...
I guess after a while it' get in everyone eyes after they
wore my shoes saw my sore -the pediatrist-lifes got me down
so much I dont have the cash on the barrel head to pay his bill.

|Intriguing write, Marvin. I think now, we each have our grains of sand, some may be aware of them, some may not. Some produce physical discomfort, some mental, my discomfort is mental. I hope you can find somewhere to be that will feel like grains of big, heavy, valuable pearls, and not jagged sand.|
