What Good Am I?

What Good Am I?

What good am I some like all the rest
If I just turn away when I see how you’re dressed
If I shut myself off so I can’t hear you cry
What good am I ?

What good am I if I know and don’t do
If I see and don’t say if I look right through you
If I turn a deaf ear to the thunderin’ sky
What good am I ?

What good am I while you softly weep
And I hear in my head what you say in your sleep
And I freeze in the moment like the rest who don’t try
What good am I ?

What good am I then to others and me
If I had every chance and yet still fail to see
If my hands are tied must I not wonder within
Who tied them and why and where must I have been.

What good am I if I say foolish things
And I laugh in the face of what sorrow brings
And I just turn my back while you silently die
What good am I ?

What Good Am I?‘ ~Bob Dylan~

I don’t feature Bob Dylan songs enough, the lyrics are some of the most powerful. The ‘Oh Mercy’ album of ’89 is one of my favourites, and if everyone listened to this song and applied it to their own life I’m sure the world would be just a little bit better for it. I know it seems like a very small thing, but in this fast paced, impersonal world…..what good is anyone who doesn’t care about others. I care….sometimes too much, and it’s then that I have to control how much I let in, because it overwhelms me and I can’t deal with it all. This may sound a little bit like preaching this morning, but it’s just something to think about and if nothing else….to listen to Bob Dylan. You don’t have to like his music but you can’t deny the power of his lyrics. Have a great day, all! ♥

The January round of Shiny Shabby should be settled down making it easier to access for everyone. Carol G Tattoo Studio has the ‘Shiva’ tattoo exclusive to the event. It’s a pretty design that plunges down the back, along the arms and between the breasts drawing the eye to all the good places! 😀 It comes in black(seen here), read and white and works with all the major mesh bodies. Shiny Shabby runs until February 15.

I’m wearing the ‘G0303’ hair from tram. The top is ‘Aqua’ in ‘camel’ from Scandalize.

I’m surrounded by odds and ends from Nutmeg.

The pose is from .MILA..
