How good were Poison?

You know the 80’s hair band.

Nothin but a good time and all them classics.

Anyways, my favourite was Unskinny Bop.

I even remember back in the day wearing a Poison t-shirt to a family photo shoot.

Thought I was too cool for school.

Looked real good when everyone else was all dressed up…

Enough of the trip down memory lane though.

Cause the reason Poison came to mind was a line before the chorus kicks in on Unskinny Bop:

“what’s been going on in that head of yours”

So what does Poison have to do with you?

Everything actually.

Cause that line is so true.

We’ve all got that poison that runs through that head of ours.

“I’ve undone all that hard work” = said after a big weekend of too much food and drink

– especially at this time of year.

“I’ll never notice any progress” = said after starting a new habit and being too impatient for those jeans to start feeling loose.

“It’s alright for her” = said when you look at what someone else has achieved and thinking you can’t do the same.

I can’t profess to know what goes on in everyone’s head,

but there’s one thing I am certain of as sure as the sun is going to come up tomorrow,

 is that we all have this poison that runs through our head.

We’ve just got to see things for what they are.

Don’t read too much into something.

Those blowouts – it happens.

Deal with it. Move on.

Just plan in your cheats and work around them – so you can enjoy them without the guilt.

That progress – it happens.

Some slower than others – depending on what hormonal issues you may or may not have going on inside.

The only thing that we can control is stopping that poison before it kicks in

– so we can all enjoy nothin but a good time (bad pun).

Bet you never thought a throwaway line in an old Poison song could have such a deep meaning!
