Wayne's blog: "Darkness"

created on 11/27/2009  |  http://fubar.com/darkness/b326182
Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man.  He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the Kentucky backcountry.  As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost, and being a typical man I didn't stop for directions.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight.  There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.  I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late.
I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.  The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around.  I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends.  I played like I've never played before for this homeless man.  And as I played “Amazing Grace,” the workers began to weep.
They wept, I wept, we all wept together.  When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car.  Though my head hung low my heart was full.
As I was opening the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "Sweet Mother of Jesus, I never seen nothin' like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years!

Darkness exist in the absence of light

No darkness is greater than the darkness that inhabits an empty heart.

Or empty soul, not empty by choice, but by the cruel chain of events.

That is a lifetime in the making. A lifetime of loss, treachery, pain and

broken hearts, no man knows this better than I., To embrace the dark.

Is too hold back the pain drowning it out with anger and spite, Anger

becomes as familiar as the air you breathe, a constant companion.

Or painkiller an emotion so strong. You forget you are capable.

of any other and you forget that you have ever felt another.

Next, you know, a lifetime has passed. The world has changed.

To a alien environment. Where you have no place the only thing.

Left you to do is to try to pass on to others. The harsh lesson.

You have learned through a lifetime of mistakes .


Many of my fu-buddies ask me. Why do I only put positive quotes in my status box. Don't you think life is negative enough. But for those who think I am so chipper I am not a churchgoer or holy roller. I just believe we are on the site to have a good time by meeting new people with common interests. But since so many have asked. I do have a darker side, keep a eye out for my new blog you might be surprised I will be posting later on


I live my life by the rules, honor, honesty, loyalty and compassion and trust.

Rules laid down, 2000 years before I was born in the oldest book ever written

somewhere along the line, someone has changed the rules. So does one change.

With the times or be a creature of conscience.
