The duty of man is the bane of man. How creepy could that be. Anyway, where are my manners? Hello, Hi, Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening etc. I have no clue as to what time it is anywhere in the world apart from here in my sappy room.
So it is Febuary; the ugly month of love. Well for the coupled people it is the lovely month of love. It is not that I have something against the whole notion of love and its encompassing emotions, but I have had enough of it. I have seen enough chaos in 2012 to say the whole notion is doomed for my generation.
It might just be me but the whole world is out there. People have forgotten the true meaning of love in this day and age. Love is not in the car you drive; it is not in the clothes you wear; it is not even in the words that you say; it is not in spreading it in one day. It is in your actions. People think that showing that person you care on Valentine's day is something big but it is not. I rather show them I care for all the other days in the year but ignore that one day.
Men will go broke. They will waste money on things that are being sold exorbitantly. Roses that will wilt in a few days, bottles of wine that will be empty in a few hours and the sappy sappy gifts that will be forgotten in moments. That is what we spend on for the sake of one day where we are not appreciated. The females will blow their angry horns like wild pigs and make us regret why we spent the money in the first place.
I should ask the ladies a few questions. Well ladies of my generation...so you older and respectable ladies might relax. Do any of you know how much planning men put into that day? No. Do you even repay the men with a kind thank you or gentle smile and give him a day or two with no nagging? No. Do you even bother to see the small things he ,in this case being we the men, does the rest of the year? I doubt that.
Girls today don't notice the small things that we do for them. They never have and never will. I just hope that one day the whole world realizes that Febuary is the worst month but it can be the foundation of a better year for love. That is if we can sort ourselves out and get it in our heads that the world is better off with men not being so bothered about the damn Valentines Day.
Forgive the incohesion in my rumblings today. I have no answer for that one today. I am weirdly tired of the whole chaotic nonsense the young couples are going through today as 14th closes in.
It is not in the material things,
It is not in the things left around,
It is not a thing to be looked down on.
It is in the little things,
in the simple things,
in the smiling things and...
It is in the hearts of all men.
and the small things will reveal it.
