Popped collar, popped doors, go back to the future

to see who will meet you, who’ll still be around.

And each time you try, but you’re never quite sure

Whether words, people, or silence will abound.

But the flux capacitor makes you speed

Towards something so bright,  so grand you concede

To the light, to the flow, to the deep water

where you are safe, the waves a chronometer.

Wisdom breeds humility, not bitterness.

Consider: you are not the center of all.

Mercy over sacrifice, I’ll acquiesce.

But different natures will slow you down, stall

progress you have made to make you youier,

Take you down, knock out the wind and make you crawl.

But this is rough, trench warfare has no chauffer;

Everyday is a battle for your mind, will,

And emotions.  Don’t get off track.  Don’t detour

The main road.  For narrow is the way that still

Takes you in the right direction.  Do you know

That no matter what you choose, it’s your free will

In the end, causes you to stay or to go

Higher than you’ve ever been; or down below.

Is it too far gone?  Time to go.

You can’t go back; only forward

Until reaching, you hit plateau.

Is it too far gone?  Time to go

Down, farther down, deep down below;

Only through death life is restored.

Is it too far gone?  Time to go.

You can’t move back.  Only forward.

“No more; the text is foolish.”  King Lear IV. ii.

Yes, we all text.  Texting is not inherently bad, by any means.  But you if you want to woo a pretty girl, don’t do it!

You need to call the girl.  You need to hear her voice, and she needs to hear your voice.  If she doesn’t like your voice, texting won’t save you, because she’ll have to hear you speak if you ever go out with her.

Plus, there are so many ways people can misconstrue text messages.  If a text message is misunderstood, you’ll just have to call and apologize anyway.

Here are  just a few things people miss out on in text messages, all of which can make a girl feel better (or worse, be careful) about you: 1) pitch 2) volume 3) rate 4) quality 5) intonation 6) vocalized pauses.  For example, she will be able to understand your sarcasm because of your pitch and intonation.  Or, she can get you’re SUPER EXCITED to see her again, because you sound happy and slightly nervous.

Texting has its uses.  It’s not all bad.  But if you are trying to date someone, just call them.  In the end, calling just means “I like you so much, I’m calling just to hear your voice.”  And that realization will make anyone feel good.
