It is time to be selective of our tenants.


Look around.

See the signs.

 

“Rooms for rent. All tenants welcomed.”

“No background check required.”

 

Another sign says.

“Live in my head rent free”

 

Unsuitable tenants create havoc

physically and emotionally.

 

The mean boss and his words

occupy a large room there.

 

The lover who shattered a heart

has a cozy room there.

 

The insecure child plays hide and seek in the rooms.

 

The angry adolescent smashes furniture in the basement.

 

The martyr friend lives in the largest room

constantly trying to get the attention of other tenants.

 

The intellectual occupying the living room

broadcasts doom and gloom

providing “his” version of truth for consumption.

 

It is time to evict all the tenants.

 

It is time to be selective of our tenants.

 

A new sign goes up:

“Vacant room available.”

 

“Background check (intention) required.”

Great advice. Sometimes we need to clear our heads and the clutter in our lives so that we can move ahead.
