Another BMX departed my life!

As sad day throughout society, when someone can steal a bike right in front of London Drugs, on Broadway an Cambie..

 

Then said thief, (Brad (street shit)) can work all night probably scraping the paint off, to come by the next day an ask to trade my other BMX for the BMX, i am riding at the moment!

 

Yet!  When i ask to look at the video tapes from the camera´s outside the store i need a cope to view these tapes…

 

Now for those within normal society, living throughout humanity, you’re not the only people, whom have to put-up with the thieving…

 

i paid honest cash for everything i own, just like you…  Only i do this on a fixed income!

Dropping Coins

We all make our money in different ways, now i’m not say that i have not panned for spare change, nonetheless panning is just not my way of life, especially when there is money lying everywhere in the dumpsters and in the back alleys of this midnight city of Vancouver BC Canada…

 

As to a drop of the coin, feeding your own addiction, or let’s just say paying for another’s, there was a time when my father paid for mine, however my sister had convinced our father about tough love.

 

That was a sad day in my life where as now i was out looking for some other ways of paying for my drug of choice… (You just gotta love sisters!)

 

Even throughout the toughest times most of those, which i called friends and myself, we’d tried our best not to leave a mess in cleaning up the garbage as we’ve left…

 

When i pass a coin, most times i know where it will be spent, simply because i’m an addict also!

 

So in ending this post;

 

When you drop a coin, maybe feeding your addiction, throughout anothers…

A snip from my journal…

My living on the street and the drugs I do is not what the family wishes for me and they say ” you can do better for myself.”  I don’t see my lifestyle this way! By living on the street I don’t bring my addiction into their lives.  In weird and strange way I know that I’m happy. Sometimes it seems really hard; I do have my moments when I would not want to be any where else in life.  I never started out to living on the street, I was forced too through bad choices of my own, then it grew on me.  Now it is away of life which I enjoy…
