Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" #REAL #Love #Patience #READTHEPOST #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Young Woman Walking in the Rain (1)


Patience is not sitting and waiting, it is foreseeing. It is looking at the thorn and seeing the rose, looking at the night and seeing the day. Lovers are patient and know that the moon needs time to become full.” 
― Jalaluddin Rumi

Sometimes one needs to step back and assess the situation at hand. Is this really what I want? If one is impatient, then loosing will most likely be the outcome. However, if patience, resolved and with the belief that those things that matter are in reach or even a possibility, the situation may change.

This is called hope. Hope for lovers is always painful because it is based on a probability not a fact but then if one gives up to soon or settles what does that say about the persons character, commitment, and true feelings. You live with a million sorrows.

Finally, if you give up to soon on someone you love then you really did not love that person in the first place and/or you will live with regret. A perfect example is my perception of Adele.

Adele became an instant sensation with all those “broken heart songs”. She has made millions. Moved on from that infamous lover, married, had a baby and presumably was happy; however her most recent hits are more of the same, "broken heart songs". What does this really tell us about Adele? Remember we are defined by our emotions and actions.

I am featuring Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain"(2). YouTube video was uploaded on Nov 16, 2011 by AdeleVEVO. This song does not reflect my emotions on the contrary, it tells us that "REAL LOVE" is worth the wait.

"Set Fire To The Rain" (3)
I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

My hands, they're strong
But my knees were far too weak,
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there's a side to you
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you'd say
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win.

But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

When I lay with you
I could stay there
Close my eyes
Feel you here forever
You and me together
Nothing gets better

'Cause there's a side to you
That I never knew, never knew,
All the things you'd say,
They were never true, never true,
And the games you'd play
You would always win, always win.

But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
When it fell, something died
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!

Sometimes I wake up by the door,
That heart you caught must be waiting for you
Even now when we're already over
I can't help myself from looking for you.

I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain,
And I threw us into the flames
When it fell, something died
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time, ohhhh!

Oh noooo
Let it burn, oh
Let it burn
Let it burn

I hope you like this selection as much as I do and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight. FYI I don't give up on people I love and want in my life. I have enough regrets already LOL!

Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton

My darling... the love, passion and desire I have for you drives a living breathing patience living my heart. This means that existence without you is not acceptable and this being my choice, I would say plainly that my love for you is enduring.

Obama's Ratings Remain Unchanged #OPINION

President Obama by Adam Zygis (1)

My political Rant:

This weekend on I watched NBC-Meet the Press with David Gregory and their guest was Mitch Mcconnell, Minority Leader of the Senate. His comments about the White House and the president in particular being a bully and using strong armed tactics (harassment) on various government groups to influence and or move into action pursuant to his agenda, left me perplexed. It was the way he kept going OVER and OVER the same point that got me thinking he was definitely trying to convey an agenda and submit a “Bait and Switch” tactic/plan of his own.

Wow, folks! A president that is actually trying to drive a do nothing congress/senate to legislate for the better good of their constituents (i.e. The American People)! I don’t think President Obama had anything to do with the IRS’s harassment of conservative groups. Might I suggest that the IRS acted in revenge on their own and were just getting back for the conservative oversight “power impediments” that were enacted upon a few years ago by the senate (i.e. government (bureaucrats) do have memories and yes this was unethical and possibly criminal). It sounds like the President is doing his job and on this point, which is not just my outlook on the situation; however, it is the opinion of a majority of Americans according to the most recent published polls (see below). What is almost hilarious is that President Obama has technically climbed in the polls, after all this negative press bashing and deck stacking.

So, let’s write to those DO NOTHING congress/senate men and women that you elected and please remind them to start working on issues that are considered moving forward such as - Immigration, Gun Control and NOT repealing medical services for all Americans which was already passed.

According to the Huffington Post (1): 
“Rating -- the CNN/ORC and ABC/Washington Post surveys, plus another national poll released on Tuesday by the American Research Group and the ongoing daily tracking surveys from Gallup and Rasmussen Reports, show virtually no net change in Obama's job rating since April. An average of the five polls rounds to 50 percent in April and 50 percent last week. [Pollster chart]

IRS and Benghazi controversies are potentially damaging - Yet the recent controversies roiling Washington present the "potential for significant damage" to the Obama administration, according to the Post/ABC poll: "Americans by a vast 74-20 percent see the IRS' behavior as inappropriate, with most feeling that way strongly -- and 56 percent see it as a deliberate attempt to harass conservative organizations, not a mere administrative error. The public divides on whether or not the administration is honestly disclosing what it knows about the IRS' actions; 45 percent suspect a cover-up, 42 percent instead see full transparency...Further, on the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last fall, suspicions of a cover-up rise to a majority, 55 percent. And in this case only a third of Americans are persuaded that the Obama administration is disclosing honestly what it knows about what.“

There is really nothing more to say except, I know I am voting against any and all “ENCUMBANT” political positions in my area! This is where we need change.

Peace Diana

Kim Kardashian-A Humanitarian?

I agree with Mr. Sixx's tweet which was highlighted in the Huffington Post (1) "Pick your priority or pick your poison. Pretty embarrassing screen shot Kim. Isn't your 15 minutes up…
http://instagram.com/p/Zj904sGLoT/and honestly feel that Kim Kardashian (KK for the rest of this rant) leaves the impression that she lacks the humility and philanthropic concern for events affecting our communities at large (i.e. America). She is strictly about promotion, marketing and the collection of money; the eye looks inward in this case.

I guess I am DONE with KK’s arrogance and the constant media machine churn. I was hoping that she would take a break, go home and have her baby quietly, but no such luck!  I, for one, am not going to write about KK anymore in order to stop providing further credence and or validation to her constant intercourse with "Publicity".

I recommend tweeting “#KK BLACKOUT”, stop giving her attention! Please re-tweet this message.

Peace out Diana
