Little Man

Little Man

Of us, it is said that we are like twins

Yet at the moment it seems that only one of us appear to have a thick skin

Whatever is the trouble it's surely not about blowing the biggest bubble

I agree it's not easy to fit, where is it that you find the well known and fully grown grit

I am the same I don't get it, how unfair it is that life does not always come up in a perfect kit

Easy buddy and I know you have already asked me

Truth is, I really don't know why everything has to be a constant source of worry

I am also unsure how you overcome such a difficulty, why there are always tearful sprinkles at the party

You know what? If it was up to me I would never invite this unwanted feeling of anxiety

But then surely it does not matter if you don't always see a perfect gong on the road to be long

That's said it would be nice if growing up was not coming at such a high price

Thanks CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit always an enlightening and insightful point of view. Duplication or multiplication that is the question when it comes to wearing a mask :-)

Personally, Pascal, I reckon that the best way to tell anxiety to bugger off is to break al those probs down to little bite size pieces of chocolate. After all who doesn't like chocolate? As for your expenditure problem, being of Scots origin, I never did pay the price and. consequently never did grow up. 👶🏻

There is a reason why when we were young some of us thought more of Catcher in the Rye where the mask is on real tight when we were young. Now I celebrate J.D. Salinger for a totally different reason, that he managed to hold on to his privacy and did not caught up in the bubble of the fame that came his way. At 16 the mask may be more than just anxious, but an act also, at 56 the mask begins to drip off revealing the face of life with an age. That is exactly why I don't like personal branding, for this is a way of making the mask the socially acceptable persona - so I prefer the reality of skin, when we know we have been skin deep and our brand is body armor against a society still driven by economic anxieties. Want to see how skin deep - criticize a persons personal brand and watch the mask begin to bleed.

Indeed @Julio Angel \ud83d\udc1dLopez Lopez sometimes people hide their anxiety behind mask in a pretty good way which makes harder it to detect :-)

They are words to use in different pictures. It depends on who you paint. Thanks Pascal Derrien
