I am so tired.
I am so tired of terror & death.
I am so tired of their partners – injustice & war (based off of lie after lie).
I am so tired of prejudice inspired-hate & ignorance, systematic oppression & day after day – night after night – as the hours dawn & reality awakens us all –
I am so tired of another attack on the livelihood of mankind .
But I am not exhausted simply because I am disappointed in mankind’s ‘mistakes’ – no .
I am tired because I am sick of seeing the world focus on the livelihoods of certain people -and understand this – with recent events having taken place , my heart breaks for the people of Manchester & London (even for Paris & Brussels) – but get this , my heart is also frustrated by the silence shown to the dying & suffering people of Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, the working slaves of Africa still serving their oppressors – why are we relatively silent when people are blown to bits in Kabul but then beyond outraged when the same happens in Europe .
Why do we sit still & place blame on whole groups of people – when our (or your) leaders are worth more blame .
Why is Syria in the state it is in , because foreign entities meddled in its (peaceful) political revolts resulting in a civil war – meant to carry out a proxy war – all to benefit the gruesome Goliath’s that are the war-frenzied United States & their ugly Middle Eastern friends Saudi Arabia & Qatar, maybe even that other one … Israel !
Why do we assume that our :
- news media
- religious institutions
- economic power-houses
that all of the above (& more) have our backs & are not at fault .
Blindness can never bring about justice – but I’ve come to see that in this mortal life , the search for justice is never easy & is never met with actual justice .
We are pawns
We are being used to promote the interests of a few
They profit off of the suffering & annihilation of others
especially those below them , weaker than them , poorer than them
We remain oblivious to the greed , corruption & terror around us –
& when it is presented to us – we accept or reject it (sometimes both) & continue on with our lives .
We live as if we are already dead – like corpses we think, feel but no- we act like the living – greedy , selfish , manipulated , foolish , weak & ignorant .
We will (by Gods ‘hand’ – I believe) destroy ourselves & the Earth that cares for us – & for some of us – we would slaughter our own mothers & hang our own fathers , trade our own children & imprison our own siblings so as to succeed in this life – that is the terror of human kinds existence !
