''Scratch the surface serve a purpose scratch the surface don't waste my time ''

These are the first verses from Scratch The Surface one of my favourite tune by SIck Of It All. I am not a loner but I am self sufficient yet it's true that I probably rather be on my own than in bad company. I don't get the cravings for superficial companionship or small talk, I just don't understand it. I have been told numerous times that I am unorthodox, whatever it does mean. Maybe I am different but aren't we all?


Don't pretend you know the almighty

Or Is it your favourite strategy when playing the hypocrisy melody?


Don't come near me with your trivial smiley

Dobious behaviour freaks me


Don't tell me I am an accident waiting to happen

How come all of a sudden you are incapable of expressing an opinion not vetted by the Knights of Camden?


Don't, please don't call me a pal when you give me the solitary recital

A beautiful loser will always be more genuine than a pedantic winner


I don't want to enter your plea, why do you push me in a direction where I don't want to be

By now you should know there is sometimes just enough mercy for a free wheel captaincy


Don't claim you understand me ahead of producing a well rehearsed encore

I know damn well that you would not even dare dragging my body from the floor


''Scratch the surface serve a purpose, scratch the surface don't waste my time ''

indeed CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit pretending and staging is easy enough in life acting is an altogether different matter and does not necessarily involve publicizing it :-)

The chief trouble with our society I say is that it does not spend enough time delving into the antonyms of bullshit. It is easy to point out but this song speaks to the actual challenge of the antonym - our actions speak louder than our protestations about BS.

This is so relatable. Id rather be alone than with others who make you crave being alone.

cheers Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador we have a say in French '' Mieux vaut etre seul que mal accompagne '' :-)

Being alone is not necessarily being lonely. Time with ourselves can be time well spent.

Praveen Raj Gullepalli good karma on that one I agree and sometimes people only do what they can not always what they would like too 😀

indeed this term as some know irritates me too 😀. There is always more than meet the eyes a back story an underlying issue that should in circumstances define an individual. To all the misfits and losers like me then 😉 Many thanks for reading Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic

I am not a loner either, but I'll always choose to be on my own than in bad company. I read your beautiful poem several times, Pascal. I would point out a verse: "A beautiful loser will always be more genuine than a pedantic winner" because I don't like people being called losers.

Thanks Vincent we have to choose what is best for us sometimes protection means a bit of solitude #18 😀

I agree and I would have to state that I am loner myself. Always figured I was born in the middle of a spacetime riff. Still trying to get back.

thanks for this interactive discussion with Harvey Joyce \ud83d\udc1d Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee people shy away sometimes from strong characters too 😀

"It's difficult to make a relationship hold at any point. It wants to grow. The irony is when you realize this...you observe those that are unable to withstand the growth." So true, Harvey Lloyd. A lesson to be learned here. I have been a loner all my life and regret it now. I have never been able to withstand the growth.

Sometimes it seems as though I am looking into a snow globe and all you need to do is shake it and watch the flakes swirl. It's difficult to make a relationship hold at any point. It wants to grow. The irony is when you realize this...you observe those that are unable to withstand the growth. Good thoughts to 🤔

interestingly I had written that 3 or 4 weeks ago people's relationships can be complicated if not complex thanks 😀

I see it likewise, I also love deep connections, and prefer to be in good company. A bond can only get stronger by creating meaningful interactions. Reminds me of this: Surround yourself with good energy, the topic of good energy appeared earlier this week in a blog from John White, MBA

Thank you Pascal Derrien for sharing your insightful post so well calibrated. That impermanence seems to be a process of continual loss and rebirth. That doesn't exist to suddenly appear for ever, and steer your creativity.
