Greetings Hive Open Mic!!!

Well, it seems this will be my last Hive post for the year... and what a song to end 2021, the worst year in my 51 year old memory.

This is frankly the only song that came to mind for me when trying to think of the subject for this week, BTW a very hard one at least for myself.
This song is off the 1997 album from Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, "The Boatman's Call" and happens to be my favorite album from Nick. I hope you all enjoy!!!

Lyrics
People just ain't no good
I think that's well understood
You can see it everywhere you look
People just ain't no good
We were married under cherry trees
Under blossom we made our vows
All the blossoms come sailing down
Through the streets and through the playgrounds
The sun would stream on the sheets
Woken by the morning bird
We'd buy the Sunday newspapers
And never read a single word
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
Seasons came, seasons went
The winter stripped, the blossoms bare
A different tree now lines the streets
Shaking its fists in the air
The winter slammed us like a fist
The windows rattling in the gales
To which she drew the curtains
Made out of her wedding veils
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good at all
To our love send a dozen white lilies
To our love send a coffin of wood
To our love let all the pink-eyed pigeons coo
That people they just ain't no good
To our love send back all the letters
To our love a valentine of blood
To our love let all the jilted lovers cry
That people they just ain't no good
It ain't that in their hearts they're bad
They can comfort you, some even try
They nurse you when you're ill of health
They bury you when you go and die
It ain't that in their hearts they're bad
They'll stick by you if they could
Ah, but that's just bullshit, baby
People just ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good, at all
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good, at all

Good evening @lk666

I am so sorry to hear that this was your worst year... Sometimes just so many very very hard situations beat us, and there are no words that could ease your feeling. Everyone lives its pains until time makes them more bearable. Still, I wish you could have a better year... and for sure, for the New Year, I wish you lots of better moments that could compensate for this year!

I do apologize for the misunderstanding. I was speaking about the Human species as a collective. You know, the Government mandates, war postering, and all the other BS that has ticked up since early 2020.

I myself had a mediocre year, with a lot to be grateful for in my personal life.

I hope you and yours have the best New year possible and great abundance, somehow, upon the entirety of the Earth. I know we can all do way better.

Happy 2022 to you @mipiano ❤️

Oh, I am happy that it was just a misunderstanding :) I understood that it was your personal worse year in your life, but good it was not!! Just mediocre, with a lot of grateful moments, it is then more than bearable! Actually, great then :)

I know, yes, many things are around that are maybe not promising a good future for the mankind. I try to cut away the news and all what is giving fear or unnecessary struggle, and read/hear just the minimum I need to know. Someone would not understand it, say that I am ignoring the things, but that is my way to stay "sane" for my family, friends, and people I get in touch with.

I also wish you a great 2022 @lk666 ☺️🥂

You're all clean shaven, and looking good, friend. Sounding good too. Nick Cave is a heck of a talented songwriter. I'm glad to hear you making music, expressing your finale to a brutal 2021. Wishing you a warm and wonderful New Year!

Thanks for joining in and enjoying Hive Open Mic

Thank you so very much man. I needed to let the old face breathe a bit before starting another beard.

Nick has been one of my favorites for quite some time and a big inspiration. Absolutely one of the best.

I also wish you a fantastic new year and may the world drift closer in unison instead of further into decline.

This makes me feel really emotional... the song, the lyrics, your voice, the guitar sound...
Maybe that's how the song's supposed to be..
And thank you so much for bringing a moment like this for the end of the year.
I believe that tomorrow will always be better than today. If things don't get better, then our attitude towards will still get better. And that's all what matters!
Cheers for the New Year! And it makes me day to hear your performance! 😊

2021 can totally keep that beard 😆
No future, no past, only right now and "There is no destination, there is only the journey" are words I try to live by.
We should collab again. just send over something 👍
Have a great New Year @tygertyger ❤️
