Pictures & People

You shouldn’t be surprised you know,
Pictures have been lying to us for decades.

What once was embellished got painted by hand,
Pictures have been lying to us for decades.

From artistic to electronic,
Pictures have been lying to us for decades.

Believe half of what you see and half of what you hear because
People have been lying to us for decades.

Like a memory only not….

There was once a time where people could, would, should disagree because that’s where growth of mind is born.

Yet even when this happened the very same people who had differing opinions would fight for the right of the other person who they may or may not have agreed with to have said opinion.

Not now though.

Not now.

Now you will be silenced with fear, shame and censorship because apparently words that don’t fit the narrative, regardless of whether they are true mis the silenced, the script must be appeased.

The world is treading in to dangerous territories, casting our and forbidding certain text and history to be shared.

Erasing the past and with it all the lessons and warning it held.

To me this means something terrible is coming and that which is doesn’t want people recognising it.

1984, equilibrium, the book of ely and all other dystopian films are seeming less like fiction as each day passes.

Something is coming, something bad and the worst part is it’s happened before, many times over and just like before it was scrubbed from the minds, hearts and memories of all history so that it could happen again.

Dangerous times are ahead.

Remember this.

First World Poor, Third World Rich

Our world is truly quite impressive.

Staring out of the window in front of me I see people on their phones, in their cars, operating machines that I can’t even fathom and we take it all for granted.

Take the humble mobile phone for example, how on earth doe this thing actually dow act it does, do you know because I sure as hell don’t and yet people created this technical marvel, it’s quite impressive really.

I feel we take for too much for granted now.

Everything we have we feel we deserve, that it is our right to have, toxic entitlement I call it.

You, I and everyone doesn’t deserve a damn thing, not really.

In the first world countries we have it all so easy, so much so we can’t see how easy we have it.

There is no struggle to survive for some of us anymore and yet we will bitch and moan about how unfairly we’ve been treated because they forgot the add the cinnamon to our latte.

How pathetic.

Then for all the altruistic talk, benevolent bullshit about equality, fairness and anything else of that ilk there are perhaps 1 in every million that would give up everything they have to go and make a difference.

All the most touching messages come from those in the most comfortable positions.

Yet not one of the would give it all up and trade places of step down from their gilded cage, we live in the age of high status hypocrites, and I’m one of them.

This conflict of self is truly maddening.

I know I’m an amoral piece of shit, yet to give up what I’ve worked for and now have will never happen because like you, like everyone in our position, what’s mine is mine and why should I let it go?

Aha, my self loathing is amusing to me.

Then again, growing up first world poor and still being first world poor now I have more than a large amount of people in the world, how’s that for irony.

In another country I’d be seen as wealthy, and would I share in that wealth or give it all up?

Probably not, I wonder though, would you?

Back in our day

Back in our day you didn’t throw out what was broken,
You worked at it until it was fixed.

Nobel words,
We’re not living in your time any more,
This is today, the one before tomorrow and the next.

Today we throw away what is broken,
Discard what is useless,
Avarice rules this world.

Throw away society,
Instant gratification,
More, more, more, more, MORE!
That is our battle cry, fear us you relic of the past.

Your time is over,
The day is ours,
The day is ours,
For now at least…..
