In light of all the sexual assault allegations against so many I write:
Please think long and hard about what you are doing
Please stop and think about it
Please don’t do it
Think about the other person
Think about the agonizing pain
Think about if that was someone you loved
And how you would feel
Or just think about what is right
And if you still want to do horrible wrongs
Please get help
But …. !
Just stop it!
Stop hurting others
They are scarred for life
Full of sadness, pain, and strife
Because of your actions
Stop the hurt
Stop the assault
And above all
Stop using your power to hurt others
Stop this train
I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
But, honestly, won’t someone stop this train?
-stop this train by John Mayer
I think in lyrics and these lyrics are how I’m feeling. You could stay it’s my current mood. Or it has been since the campaign for president began. Now, day after day the decisions Trump makes continue to be self-destructive but also destructive to America. I don’t know why but it feels like the walls are closing in on me when I watch the news or catch a story on my phone. Do you know that my best workout was when Trump was speaking at a town hall and I was so appalled by the lies and rude words he was spewing so I continued going on the treadmill until the talk was over. My dad was next to me, and I remember walking out of that gym that night thinking, there’s no way that after this type of behavior and performance he would be the republican candidate? Alas, worse than just that happened. So as I think in song, my current mood is Stop this Train by John Mayer because honestly, won’t someone stop this train?
