nothing is what it is
everything is in process
the beautiful process
there is not much in
seeking free will
the thought alone takes
you away from the present
the beautiful present
so many devices
packed full with a swing of emotions
helping me a lot
but are you keeping me captive
has my living become dependent?
have i not seen the stars at noon?
does my heart only wish for
a notification or two?
like a subway train
came the realization
in the sound of telephone static
People are different. We go through diverse childhoods, experience different colors of joy and feel many different shades of sadness. Influences from family, school, friends and media mold into a unique mix for each of us. Mix to shape our perspective and view of the world. Further mixing of these unique views has created a world of possibilities. A world which fosters us to imagine and dream. We then build the tools needed to fuel our dreams. And use those tools to design our imagination. The spheres of differences also cross link on this finite planet. What’s intimate to one, will be intimate to many. But the quantity of that many varies here and there.
Yet we unsettle ourselves when we cannot cling on tightly to one of these labels. Labels, social groups, status. Labels which propel on defining us without knowing us. Forcing us to compare and compete with those we shouldn’t. It’s not our fault, we have been taught to do so. It brings us a sense of security when we “belong”. But such security shouldn’t come at the cost of self sacrifice. Media continues to portray false realities. Building up false hopes and expectations in young minds. Young confused minds. Sometimes equally confused as their older counterparts. We as a society don’t stop pushing these labels onto others. Creating a circle of confusion and fear.
A mind occupied in such confusion and fear is often crippled. Each mind deserves love. Love to understand what it is and what it wants. Finding other people with similar love. Sharing the love. It’s really amazing the things we can create when we come together. More diverse the crowd, more amazing the result.
Let’s detach all titles and labels from people. There are more than two genders. There are too many types/forms/sects of religion to name. On top of that the personal sense of existence varies by life experience. Let’s learn to appreciate our differences. Let’s share our experiences, and learn and teach each other. Let’s be weird.
