Talk Of Revolution

Ever since I was old enough to understand what society was, all that talk of a revolution made sense. Stereotypes, class warfare, corruption and general skullduggery is evident everywhere we look. The societal views that most of us share have been implanted into our minds through the media and propaganda. Most of these views are indeed detrimental to us as a people. I believe a revolution to be a new start and fresh beginning. Society is far too messed up for minor reparations. We will need an entirely new way of doing things. The way things are now will destroy us. Actually, it has already destroyed our sense of identity. Through a revolution is the only way some things will ever change.

When you consider the extreme lengths that some are willing to go just to feel accepted, you get a general idea of how twisted society is. This is a major problem. You learn about individuals of the same communities and race exalting other individuals over others due to skin complexion. Some beautiful women are willing to cause physical damage to themselves in order to fit into the image society said they should mimic. The pain of unacceptance can paralyze. Especially, if you're not accepted within your own communities. We learn about some individuals degrading themselves because they don't choose to behave the way society wants them to. Individuals who are compassionate and caring are looked down upon while those who are cold and heartless are exalted. What have we come to as a nation? It will take a revolution to shake this up.

Let's talk about the entertainment industry. Of course, it does an excellent job keeping us entertained but search deeper. What is it really doing to further us as a people? Nothing. It has actually paralyzed millions and stunted the growth of the revolutionary spirit. It's almost as if we are having a break while still on the clock. So many of us don't care. The things they feed us through the media does not instruct us on how to fix ourselves. They don't tell us how to solve the major problems. All they do is show us the major problems. That is a distraction in itself. The crazy thing is, those individuals who really have something to say are kept away from the spotlight. Most of them aren't even accepted by the people. Society condones any behavior that will keep us in the shape we're already in and reject anything and anyone that may threaten this way of life with a true change. Even though the need for change is obvious, it is not welcomed. The entertainment industry will continue to put out what sells. Unfortunately, what sells are those things that will keep us oppressed. Some of us want to see something different but the majority don't. This will make a true revolution that much harder to come by.

The lower class communities suffer the most in society's current state. Everything just leeches off of the ghetto. This society will give the underprivileged youths a false image of what success is supposed to look like. These children may then become discouraged from striving for these things and lose their sense of self. They can become so preoccupied with their idols that they don't think about trying to elevate themselves. That's a part of the trap. All it does is keeps the lower class in that position and keep the upper class in a higher one. That's how the money is made as well. One person can't change these situations but talking about it enough will at least bring awareness. Once you have that, eventually, someone will come up and make a change some day. Once we've realized our true conditions, the revolution has begun.

Looking back at history, I've noticed that most of our changes didn't happen without a serious struggle. Unfortunately, some blood had to be spilled just to gain support or awareness to an issue. Without those individuals and their contributions to society, we'll be living in an even darker world than today. It's safe to say that history does repeat itself. We are now dealing with some serious issues. These are things that we can't afford to let continue. Though it is impossible to fix the world, if you can make a difference in the life of one person, your job is complete. To me, that is the fruit of a revolution.

Smile... The Death Will Change To Birth

How long can stay the happiness?
How long can stay the sadness?

Nothing in this world can go always up
Nothing in this world can go only down.
Nothing in this world remains the same forever.

As the day changes to night,
And the night changes to day.

As the cold changes to warm,
and warm changes to cold.

As this natural law always changes everything,
up to down and down to up.

So long as there is nothing without an opposite, smile...

The Death will change to Birth!

Change Here I Am

Change Here I Am

Forever changed am I,
Forever and Ever!

Gone is the old me,
Here is the new one!

Changed by Theory,
Changed by Idea!

I didn’t want the change,
But the change happened!

I don’t care what you think,
The old me is gone!

Forever and Ever,
The New Me is here to Stay!

Changing World

Changing world changeth
Waiting for none to stop!

Do I change or not is the question
If not where do I stand is the puzzle!

Born on the earth to reach a goal
Came to the world to play a role!

Can I change the shape or shape the change
Thoughts relevant in mind to face!

Await not but bring the change
Anticipate the effect of change
Unforeseen may be the end
Understand that is the world!

Be yourself and behave yourself
Keep the good of all, all the while!
