Good morning my dear Friends in the States, I wish you all a Peaceful Voting Day!!!
We are prisoners of ourselves. Some of us unknowingly lock ourselves away and paint our faces with smiles in hope that no one will notice the pain in our eyes. Barriers are built and destroyed over and over again. We tell ourselves over and over again that it won't happen again. We tell ourselves that they aren't like the rest. But every time, just like the rest who had broken us, we let the next pick at the neat little threads we'd used to sew ourselves back together.
We let people tear open our hearts and bare our souls. As they stand there laughing in our faces, we just smile. We have to smile. If we allow ourselves to feel again... if we allow ourselves to acknowledge the fact that this may be the point of no return, we might just crumble. How far have we gone? How far have we been broken passed repair? How long and how far will we let them break us? On the outside we smile.
We laugh with them so it doesn't hurt so much. We pretend and play along until we are alone. Once the doors close, the smile fades and all the seams that kept us together tear until our hearts are bleeding out. On the inside, as we smile every day, we hear the tiny gasps and whimpers of our souls begging for love and affection.
So we tell ourselves, one more time. One more time I'll fall in love again. One more time I'll bare my heart and soul. Yet, we know that this "one more time" will turn into a thousand "one more times" because all we want is love. We starve for it. We starve for it as much as we need air. They starved us of it for so long that we become desperate for it. It's a hunger we can never seem to quench. The longer we starve, the more broken we become when another person comes and tears another seam into our hearts.
Do you know what our greatest fear is? It isn't love, dear. You'd think that wouldn't you? Love should be our biggest fear. No, it's being alone... it's being rejected. We fall in love so easily and so frequently in hopes someone will some day do the same in return. But then when one person after another chips at those seams, we begin to realize that we can't imagine a life alone or full of rejection. We want affection, whether emotional or physical, we starve for it.
We smile and pretend. We laugh with tears in our eyes in hopes no one will see the pain. It becomes hard to trust, but we find ourselves so willing to trust again naively because we can't help but once again search for that breath of fresh air. And just when we think we've finally found the fresh breath of air we'd been starved of most of our lives, we find out it's toxic and now we're dying once again. (Autor: Emily Eisenhart)

Great image and thoughtful commentary... I will only add a quote from a rather more notable occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, FDR (paraphrasing Michel de Montaigne). "the only thing we have to fear is â¦ fear itself".

Today is the most important day and will define the path, that this country will take from this day forward! May the news of tomorrow bring us happiness and not sorrow! Excellent work of art! I like it! :-)

Thank you from the U.S. my dear friend. You are a caring and fine human being. Your words and actions show us that. I admire you and you have wisdom. Be well and stay safe my good friend...Dag
It was a pleasure for me to post this here, because the welfare of my American friends is also close to my heart and not only the virtual ones here in the gallery, I also have good friends in Oregon, Virginia and Texas and I hope that they will all make the right decision.

I'm done with his whole clan. I want him out. Bravo to you for having the strength to put that smug face in your art, I can't even look at him.

I sincerely hope he will be voted out and this country can get about repairing the damage he has done. I hope we never forget the lies and misery of the past four years as well as all the Americans that have lost their lives to Covid19 due to the slow and inadequate actions taken.

J'adore la rÃ©alisation de cette image mais je ne me prononcerais pas au niveau politique :) ! Excellente crÃ©ation !!

We did our part... Unfortunately, as Barb said.. There are still too many people out there with s##t for brains. As of this morning, Biden has a narrow lead. I hope it stays that way. Dufus Trump needs to go. Far, far away...

Let us all hope that justice will finally prevail and that such an uneducated, selfish baron of lies will not be allowed to get away scot-free (if he is voted out of office). "He wants to have the election aborted because of the postal votes", I am about to cry (but for laughter)!

politicians are all scoundrels including the ones in the UK
