Who are you?
Say hello to yourself. You know yourself better than anyone else knows you. You know your strengths, you know your bittersweet weaknesses. You know your ups and you know your downs. You know what brings you joy and only you know what brings you deep sorrow. The only problem is that people have been shielding themselves from reality so long that they have begun to believe in someone they're not; they believe in who they portray themselves to be. Many have lost themselves to life and for chance of loss or rejection or disapproval have put on a costume, forever stuck in a life that other people want them to live in. Forever someone else, always lying to themselves. What has happened?
What have we become? What has all this boiled down to? Is it that we are so deeply entwined in the tangles of the system that we no longer see clearly? Is it that we are so pre-occupied with our superficial problems that we have forgotten ourselves? The answer to that is still not apparent. Really hope its not one of those things you find out near the end of your natural life. It has gotten so out of hand that humanity has become de-sensitized to the fact that most of them are now living like sheep. They will call each other when they need something. They will never trust. They will steal, cheat, hurt..worse yet; they are becoming further distant from one another. As our earth is moving towards digitization and globalization, more and more of us are becoming distant from humanity. Becoming more clam shelled, more introversive. Are you not afraid?
What is happening...its getting darker out there. Pick up a newspaper: what the hell is going on? Everyone except a few are oblivious to the fact that they are doing what they are doing in their daily lives for nothing. Part of a company, part of a business, part of a community; and where is this headed? Stack money because it's a cruel world. Watch your back because its not safe. Stay out of these areas and those cities. Too many problems around you of your own, no time to worry about war victims unless you are one, or until you just turn on the tv for a few minutes. Believe what the media feeds you and live in frenzy. Spend what you make or save all you make. What difference do all those warnings make? Desensitization. They tell you the cigarette WILL kill you, ON the pack of smokes. What the hell is happening?
The average child of today sees more than 8000 murders on television by the time he/she is 14. Death is not left to be contemplated any longer; it's now an everyday part of the media, video games, etc. There is no respect for life today, and this "degeneration of our generation" is taking it's toll. Its taking it's toll on religion/belief, ethics, moral standing, and on us - the people. The same people from "Power to the People!", the same human race only the power is imbalanced. Today it has become an army of masked people. Masked & in costume, waiting for the next big theatrical event to show off their outer selves and squeeze their insides away. An army working for work. An army working for the system, the upper-class down to the poorest poor are working for the rich, who really don't know what it's like down there; or they do and they don't give a damn.
And here we are, humanity. Here we are scared and afraid, here we are terrified; we are paralysed. We can not move under the weight, we can not breathe under the pressure. We can not scream out lest we be heard and punished. When did we lose our strength? Where did our convictions go? How are these invisible walls so thick that we can no longer break through them?
Do you remember who you are?
Fear fear. Break boundaries. You will find that you are stronger than they expected. You will find you are tougher than their tanks, faster than their bullets and sharper than their barbed wire. You will find that you were born, for greatness.
Break free, and you will find yourself.
