No Fool

Someone tried to scam me today.  Using my business and a false order they tried to steal from me.  Ugh. Red flags went up and thankfully I caught on and cut off communication before any damage was done. Well, monetary damage.  I’m afraid my psyche has suffered.

I hate that the world is like this.   I have a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.  Cheated by a fellow human feels lousy-disturbing-unsettling.  We’re all in this together aren’t we?  Fellow sojourners, we all travel this life, cradle to grave, sharing the same air.   Aren’t we, as part of the human race, supposed to have each other’s backs?   Instead we steal and cheat and scam and judge and criticize and wound our planet mates.

But I want to hope for more.  I want to believe that all is not lost and that good, honest people still exist.

Ever since uncovering the deception, this U2 song’s been in my head.

16th of June, nine 0 five, door bell rings
Man at the door says if
I want to stay alive a bit longer
There’s a few things I need you to know.
Coming from a long line of travelling sales people on my mother’s side
I wasn’t gonna buy just anyone’s cockatoo
So why would I invite a complete stranger into my home
Would you?
These days are better than that
These days are better than that
Every day I die again, and again I’m reborn
Every day I have to find the courage
To walk out into the street
With arms out
Got a love you can’t defeat
Neither down or out
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe now
16th of June, Chinese stocks are going up
And I’m coming down with some new Asian virus
Doc says you’re fine, or dying
Please Nine 0 nine, St John Divine, on the line, my pulse is fine
But I’m running down the road like loose electricity
While the band in my head plays a striptease
The roar that lies on the other side of silence
The forest fire that is fear so deny it
Walk out into the street
Sing your heart out
The people we meet
Will not be drowned out
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe now
We are people born of sound
The songs are in our eyes
Gonna wear them like a crown
Walk out, into the sunburst street
Sing your heart out, sing my heart out
I’ve found grace inside a sound
I found grace, it’s all that I found
And I can breathe
Breathe now
