Why Am I A Lineman

Sine Waves: The highs and lows of Life on the Line Hits: 337

Why am I a lineman. No one gives you the title, no one gives you anything associated with the title lineman.

We love hard, we live fast, we are your worst nightmare and your best friend.

We will laugh in your face, we will stand at your wedding, and stand stoic at your funeral.

People think that we don’t hurt, that we don’t care.

We hurt deeper than anyone you ever met. We feel everything deeper than you ever knew existed. What your name is matters, not at all what people call you, you take to your grave.  We give you all and we walk away.

I am a lineman every day, no matter what I do today.

Thomas H Palmer - Lineman
