Both Sides Now


With all of the constant daily attacks on each other,  maybe we need to truly STOP and attempt to take a long, hard look at the opposing side. Just a thought ……

Both Sides Now

Or, read Joni Mitchells’ lyrics to “Both Sides Now” ……

Bows and flows of angel hair 
And ice cream castles in the air
And feathered canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that wayBut now they only block the sun 
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels 
The dizzy dancing way you feel
When every fairy tale comes real
I’ve looked at love that way

But now it’s just another show
You leave ’em laughing when you go
And if you care don’t let them know
Don’t give yourself away

I’ve looked at love from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say “I love you” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange 
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost but something’s gained 
In living every day

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

 

At the end of our days, it won’t be who won or lost. Not who was right or wrong. It will be about family, love, hope and faith.

I know I’m not right all the time, nor am I wrong all the time ….. how about you?
