Change the channel

July 13, 2015

I found myself listening to a show that wasn’t fun.
But I kept it going.
As if I didn’t have the choice to press stop.

Suddenly, I snapped out of the trance.
What the fuck am I doing wasting my time?
Pause. Tossed the headphones off my head.

Unless you’re in prison and they have you chained down,
and keep your eyes & ears wide open and force you to watch something,
we have the power of choice.

Bad books, podcasts, websites, shows, family, friends, jobs, town, country.
Whatever.
Change the channel.
And move on with our lives.
