35 Years On

(The video is age restricted because of the “Eff” word)
Amazing that after 35 years my ex still thinks all her problems are my fault. Wow, that says a lot about her problems. I wonder why I couldn’t see that in 1979 when I met her… hmmm. Now all these years later thanks to her hatred, my son born in 1980 was never allowed to get to know me. He is the one that suffered her ugliness. He still suffers from only knowing about his father through the ugly stories and lies told by my angry ex-wife. He has never asked for any validation or clarification to the stories she tells. Sad really. In my stubborn refusal to ever say anything unkind to him about her, I blew my chances to tell him and show him who I really am. Every time I tried to be with him she made the scene so miserable that there was nothing to do but pull away, or prove her to be the monster to me that she was.

I am not saying I did nothing wrong, I am saying that no matter what I did to try to make our parting amicable, she always turned it into a way. Just like this song says, 35 years later, ALL of her problems are MY fault.

Songs for Christopher Jack

Songs written about, to and for my son, Christopher Jack Cline. And songs that I wrote for his mother.

I love you Jack. We are all writing our stories until we close the book.

Ain’t it funny how life changes by the hour?
Ain’t it just like weeds to start with a pretty little flower?
The weeds they were unlucky that day up in Kentucky in Bowling Green cleaning grandma’s grave.
