Dragons

I have come to learn in this crazy mixed up world of ours, that when people say that another person will get their dues, they really don't. Have you noticed that? There is always that handful of people in your life who always land on their feet, no matter the situation. Now, there are some people who work hard to do so, and I give them credit. As long as they are working hard in an honest, moral fashion. But then.....then there are the Dragons. Why do I call them Dragons? It really doesn't matter the reason, what matters is that these people are out there, getting everything they want and more, one way or another. Am I bitter? Yes. Angry? Sure. Jealous? Not really.

So how do they do it? Or do I really even want to know? I guess there would be no point in me figuring out how they do what they do when I so disagree with it. How does a person lacking a moral compass get up in the morning, greet themselves in the mirror and say,

"Hot damn! Here's to another day of screwing people out of what they deserve, belittling others so they feel like crap, and making sure that I get all that I need today."

How do they do it with no remorse, no feelings, no guilt? I feel bad when I don't return a phone call. But I suppose with years and years of acting the way these Dragons do, it just becomes natural behavior. Something automatic. Scary.

What is even more scary about these people, is that there are weaker people amongst them who see what they do, and think that they should do it too. Baby Dragons, if you will. I am glad that the people I chose to be around are anti-Dragon. I have no time for Dragons, unless of course they are apologizing for being such.

I believe that if you do something often enough, the conscience wears off.

When you lie about something, the angel on your left shoulder tells you to be honest. The devil on the right tells you that it's okay. Everyone does it. You feel guilty the first time you do it. After awhile, it gets easier the more you do it. Same thing with anything else-stealing, making fun of people, ripping people off....

That's the way I look at it. The heart gets hardened and the devil on your right gets stronger.

Sinful nature. Only thing is, God gave people free will. So we can't force them to do the right thing. So it's not a felony to cut people down and make them feel like crap. I can't help but feel that these people need attention, want to hurt others because they are hurting, or just plain mean.

Dragons are all over. Yes, the best thing to do is ignore them and be around people who are positive. :)

God bless.

Is there someone specific you're talking about? I sense a story here. I think that dragons exist because no one has made them pay for their actions. We need a real life Justice League to give them their just desserts. What do you say? You wanna?

I would so be in the Justice League! I think I would be Princess Knock You on Your Ass. Yeah, that would be me.

my sentiments exactly...the dragons do always land on their feet. I am often discouraged by the dragons....but that is my cross to bear and figure out.
Can I be....Eviserate Gal????
