The Shape of Things to Come

The Shape of Things to Come

Well it’s late in the hour
And a few more grains of sand will fall
On the colorful flowers
Have grown upon the dust and moss

Now I fear the worst is near
I hold them close and count their years
And pray a ray of light appears
To shine down on us here

Break down in the shape of things to come
But I’m moving on like a soldier
And I say now when all is said and done
It’s not ours to break
The shape of things to come

There’s a crack in the clouds
But only for a moment now
Like an eye looking out, in blue skies
Finds the roads we will go down

I wonder what they hold for us
I hold my family to my breast
I fear the worst and hope the best
Will come to see us blessed

Break down in the shape of things to come
But I’m moving on like a soldier
And I say now when all is said and done
It’s not ours to break
The shape of things to come

The Shape of Things to Come ~Audioslave~

I find it harder and harder to listen to the news, and I’ve always been one who keeps up on current events. But, to keep my anxiety at a manageable level and try to stay positive about life, I’ve had to cut out a lot of the news from around the world. I’m not sticking my head in the sand to avoid it all, but now I get caught up on the current affairs and then make my mind move on to something else. It can be so frustrating, completely immobilizing, and downright scary to hear of what we have become. I don’t know what it will take for things to change, but if this is the shape of things to come, I don’t want to see it.

Sorry to be a downer, I’ll just say that this is a’not enough coffee in the world’ kind of day to get me feeling alive and kicking. But, when I look at the colours of this picture that I took yesterday I feel a brightening of my mind. I just love the tones in this, it’s funny how my emotions can be swayed so easily, I’m just this blob of emotion ready to pick up vibes from something…..anything……*sighs* But, anyway……I’m wearing the ‘Sofia Turtleneck Dress’ from LEGAL INSANITY and it’s a good thing I have curves in all the right places because this really hugs them! ‘Sofia’ is Maitreya exclusive and comes in eight really pretty colours. I’ve opted for the red……so I guess you could say I’m the Lady in Red, if you must. 🙂

This tousled hair is ‘MAYU’ from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 4 options from the ‘Sexy Smokey Eyeshadow’ set from M I L A. My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ set from Zombie Suicide.

I was going deep into my poses folder yesterday and came up with this one from the ‘Breathe Easy’ set from Le Poppycock.

I’m at Mother Road for this shot! I love the dry heat of the desert!
