Lesson 075 ~The Chain of Command~
Hey Lady Lu,
No Fear because fear is but a chain meant to keep you in your place and sometimes it doesn’t seem to matter which end of it you find yourself on. Braxton has his leash but most days he fears nothing, the leash is for me to keep control of him because… yes, I am afraid of what he might do or where he might choose to go.
“You know what the chain of command is? It’s the chain I go get and beat you with ’til ya understand who’s in ruttin’ command here.” The Train Job, Firefly
Am I afraid to take command, I wonder how my father does it, no scratch that, fear and I don’t think that anyone should rule by fear though it is an alluring thought we’ll get to it? Today, I found myself in a command situation and I think there is a difference in command and leadership, I have no problem with command but if I must lead, I want to know where the hell I’m going and today I was just lost. Now I don’t mind being lost but for others to be lost with me, hell no man is meant to be a slave, at least not forever but how does one find freedom?
“Lead, follow, or get out of the way.” Thomas Paine
During the day I am but a slave chained, not actual chains mind you but yeah in the mind, I am commanded except for those rare occasions when my experience serves a purpose. Now in the bedroom, of course, those chains become more a reality, not just chains, scarves, ropes, my current submissive’s lingerie, methods of exerting dominance and control but again who is a servant and who is master, true dominants accept the situation as we know it to be. To have such control over another person, for someone to trust you with such power and authority, only the true victory is when you know they will stay regardless without such tools being employed.
The problem with the world today is too many who have power, command, leadership and the like don’t know what to do with it and while confidence is key… that might be it right there Lu, I mean of course confidence sets of free, we’ve talked about this. Anyway, my point is that I want to earn such power, to be worthy of it, and of course to know where I’m going with it honestly.
“Dreaming of windows black tinted like a hearse
When waking up to life sometimes seems worst
And all I ever wanted is to be a better man
And I try to keep it real with my homies land
For me to save the world I don’t understand
How did I become the leader of a billion fans?” from R. Kelly
That’s what I learned today, that it isn’t so much the chain but the key of command, that I’m not afraid, you’ll leave, that I’m not tempted to give you the key, and that you don’t go looking for it because at the end of the day I am still holding The Chain of Command.
The only thing in this world that gives orders… is balls.” Tony Montana, Scarface (1983)
