People Equal Shit

It is a jazz cover, absolutely amazing.

People do equal shit in the broad scheme of things, manure to fertilize the ground.  Food for the maggots and worms.  No matter how poor or rich, lowly or important, weak or strong, we will all be reduced to compost.

Why does it matter?  There is a beginning and an end to life.  We have no idea how long it will last, do we?  You can talk about living to the ripe old age of ___ (insert desired number here).  Some may take a different approach, saying things like "I want to go out with a bang" or "I want to die before my body deteriorates into a pile of mush."  My favorite saying is "I want to go out while I am having sex, right as I reach an orgasm."  Do you know how fucked up that is going to be to your partner?  Scarred for the rest of their lives!!!  "Yeah, but I will die one happy son of a bitch!"  You could be reading this on your smart phone right now, not see the open manhole cover in front of you and fall, screaming to your death.  We just don't know when Azrael will come to take us away from this mortal plane.

My point is this;  We have no idea how long we are going to live, so it is what you do in between that counts.  Why act like a piece of shit while you are alive, when you will be one when you die?  We all have to make choices every day.  Why not choose to be nice and helpful to your fellow mankind?  No one makes anybody be mean or hurtful, it is just a choice.  Life is so much more enjoyable when we treat each other with compassion and respect.  I choose to like everybody, until they give me a reason not to.  Even then I may still give them another chance.

To me it seems like hard work being mean and nasty to people. My mother has worked so hard to make herself miserable.  She works even harder to try and make the rest of us miserable.  With so many blessings in her life, she will not open her eyes to see them.  I know I don't have to do much to be nice, a smile here or a few words of appreciation there.  Not hard at all.  Smiles are contagious, you know?
