Although writing is a great Medium
& one which i really enjoy I suppose there comes a time when you think Vocalized words will be more than what, you may be thinking & writing!
In times of peace i have heard that humanity turns to Books & times of learning which i am starting to understand why & the how? its Math 101 Really
but on a deeper level it is more.. i am Starting to realize this.
I Have said to my friends over the last wee while, that there is for sure, definitely more war & strife around the world than ever before, & then i would conduct a list from World War 2 and onwards. and say it out aloud to some of them!
The response from some is Yes that there is for sure more Bullshit in the world. Yet for some they would say that is because of media coverage & that its always been this way no less, no more! Only more Media.
And as much as i counter their response, still they refuse to accept a blatant truth!
why? are they scared? maybe! or, maybe they are just ignorant of certain facts & prefer to live in the Blinkered version of Society.. work/pub/wife/kids/holidays
maybe they are the true Hero’s trying to Hold on to an Ideal? a simple happy life.
I wish it were so.. As if it were so .. i would not feel so impotent when speaking to them, instead of feeling Drained? i would feel alive as they told me of there newest project, or most red Wine they had tasted or, when they were due to be Married, or the news of the 1st born. of which i take an interest for sure but, it is not with a whole Heart, there is no joy from there words echoing in my Heart. And Deep down, Neither in theirs as they turn to watch the Football
I sometimes wonder, why you would want to bring a child in to this world as it is now! I myself have wondered at that possibility with the right Girl & have dreamed about it but, in this world this day, this Age, not a hope & to think there a people out their that desperate to conceive they will go through years of treatment! most, with a mindset of our Kid, our Blood etc, with no real thought of adoption. which in itself is Racist.. only at the end of the Line will they think about adoption.
i understand the need to bring a wee bundle of Joy into the World, yet! that wee Bundle is going to Have to face a real uncertain world one where Joy is Bought our Taken & Marketed.
If i asked all my friends would they want World Peace some would say yes, some would say it is never going to Happen… to the Latter here, I would say ‘..My other Friends who Go to the pub after work, Who try and stay away from the wife & maybe who are trying to Have Children” at least they said Yes!!
But too you My Friend who said its Never going to Happen when a Simple Yes would do.. when i think about it? you said ”NO”
Sometimes i wish i was like my other Blinkered friends.. the Hero’s, in there apathy! Holding on to a Dream.. but to My Friends who said it’s never going to Happen…..
I am Glad i am not like you!!
