Last night I was walking through the streets and I noticed that everyone was in a hurry, women were busy buying home product from the cold stores men were walking fast dragging their young ones ,not even thinking if they can make those big steps like theirs, everyone is in a hurry they could not even notice how beautiful the sunset was!, the could not notice the flowers growing beside the pavements not even could they notice the beautiful butterflies flying around.
Every one of them seemed serious and perhaps angry, the shop owner could hardly smile at the customer and on the other hand, the customer had not time even to say hi when he or she approaches the shopkeeper, I was standing wondering how cruel this is, in that these people have no time to interact, because if I can recall where I was raised it was your responsibility as a human being to know how your neighbour is doing, help them when they are in need, cheers them up when their down, and lift them up when they fall down.
So decided to continue with my journey to the bus station while trying to smile at every innocent face that looked at me but to my amusement no one smiled back and they looked at me as if there is a loose screw in my head (as if am crazy) on reaching the bus station I was amazed there was a huge crowd of people, oooooh yes I was very happy that I have come across a group of people who can bring back this human feeling once again, but ooops!!!!! I was shocked to see all of them looking down at this small divise in their hands, some of them were serious, some of them were laughing, some were lonely, some were confused and I was the only one smiling, while others looked at me with a strange face.
well, I came from a small remote place at the end of the earth where happiness is the foundation of life, helping each and being there for one another as well as interacting are the building blocks of life.
But here am trapped in this messy and boring world where, you are measured by how many likes you have on facebook, how many followers you have on Instagram where 90%of them are unknown to you, by how many subscribers you have on youtube and am sure you don’t even know even a single one of them, by how much money you have that you can say the dumbest thing or do the stupidest thing in the planet and people will imitate you,
A world whereby we have allowed the evil to look good and the good to look soo bad, we elect killers and thieves in the highest offices and later we complain that life is hard, we cry when our family members dies but we don’t care when innocent kids men and women are boomed sprayed with deadly chemicals, die of hunger caused by those we put in power, simply because they are not ours, we praise what is bad and criticise what is good, and that is why I wonder every single day where are we heading as human beings.
we claim to be smarter than before yet more people are dying from diseases and wars, there is more hatred than ever before we have ruined our planet, we still can’t even read the language of the Egyptian mummies, yet we want we can’t even explain the pyramids, we can’t find food for the starving tummies yet we want to fly to the moon, therefore, the Question is are growing wiser or are we just growing tall
I want to back to my tiny village but will they allow me to????
RISE ABOVE FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS
