Good evening all! I’m sorry it has been some time since my last post my days have been crazy! I was inspired this evening to write because of some things I experienced over the weekend. I had to make hard choices and I realized that hard choices are made even HARDER because of culture and society. So much of our lives are skewed and twisted and judged and BACKWARDS because of standards that our world puts in place. I wasn’t completely done with this piece I wrote but I decided I’d throw it up here to see what y’all think. I wrote this in probably 5 minutes so I probably could have taken time to edit it but sometimes I like to leave things uncut! So here’s what I just wrote, I’d like to know if you agree or disagree with me.
Backwards world we live in
and the lines are blurred between right and wrong
Best or worst intentions who can tell?
Lies are pretty and the truth is ugly
The heart tells the story but the pain is unseen
What would pain look like ?
A crack deepening over time
A rip down a perfect portrait
A stain on your favorite shirt
Hurt- so clear, fragile but so imminent
Pain has left no one untouched.
The scars mar each their own
dismantle relationships, societies, lives
Can we lie to ourselves for so long that it becomes truth?
Can we hurt so long it becomes pleasure?
Can we isolate so long it becomes living?
the evil one skews pursues wanting us to lose ourselves in a battle with this world
A hint of truth in a list of lies can sway and stray the many
Patience is torture, a virtue no more
Waiting is tainted by the swiftness of evil
Backwards is the world
Sick is beauty
Health is fat
Death is celebrated
Birth is eliminated
Man is women is women is man?
Black who hate white who hate black
Virtue is ashamed
Promiscuous is sought after
What a backwards world we live in.
