Artist's Description

The ‘barb’ that came to mind while photographing this dragonfly was “a biting critical remark”, that some humans choose to relay as pertinent, judgmental and necessary communications to share with others. In a world filled with so much verbal toxicity, I find myself sitting in the ‘middle of the fence’, so to say and constantly reminding myself that if I have nothing nice to say, I simply say nothing at all.

Dragonfly ~ A key to my dreams, an eye for the truth, an ear open to spirit for messages bold, will break down illusions and transform my life, so I remake myself in a positive mold. DJ Conway

STICKS AND STONES
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But names will never hurt me
I think someone’s full of bull
Cause words are really hurtful

Don’t dwell on what was said
Don’t take it to your bed
In just a little time
It’ll erase from your mind

CHORUS
Don’t look back at what you had
Sometimes we all get sad
It’s not worth getting mad
It might not be what you thought
Happiness can’t be bought
That’s just what I been taught

A little encouragement
Can go a long way
It may even help
Turn around a bad day

So try your best
Sometimes you’ll get no rest
This goes for the weary
That’s just my own theory

Chorus
Don’t look back at what you had
Sometimes we all get sad
It’s not worth getting mad
It might not be what you thought
Happiness can’t be bought
That’s just what I been taught

Keep your eyes open
If you’re hoping
Things can happen
With a quick reaction

It’s not first or last
Boy does time go fast
It’s not about always winning
Maybe a beginning

Chorus
You can’t always get what you want
So be happy with what you got
Many battles have been fought
It might not be what you thought
Happiness can’t be bought
That’s just what I been taught

Sticks and stones may break my bones
But names will never hurt me
I think someone’s full of bull
Cause words are really hurtful
