We live in a world that is upside down, that says one thing and does another. We are told to tell the truth and then told to be polite (which urging us to lie all the time with the intention of saving face and keeping everybody happy). The rules that we are brought up with keep changing. The real truth about all of us mentally is that we are confused, and control is part of that confusion. We feel we need to control ourselves in order to tell the lies we are forced to tell and to keep up with the rules as they keep changing. Once we enter the world of control (even of ourselves), we are then susceptible to being controlled by anyone and everyone. We are lost and confused
We lie in marriages, we lie in business, we lie in religions, we lie in schools, and we lie in government. We are all liars, we have created a world of illusion from words, and the brain we are born with becomes polluted with the fake. We can pretend that we are kind and do good deeds to fool ourselves that we are helping the world, but we have separated ourselves from the truth, and we have each created this fake self. When you tell a lie; you’re saying that someone either isn’t worth the truth, doesn’t deserve the truth, or can’t be trusted with the truth. Everyone deserves it, though, and it’s up to them what to do with it, not you.
Truth is a living, vibrant thing. It lives and dies every second. Lies do not die until the truth of them is spoken.
Since I was a child, I can remember being told that I needed to learn how to cook and iron to find a husband. Then I started to come across these oh so cool teen magazines telling young girls what to do to keep a man, to make a man happy or to keep him from leaving, and I always wondered if men magazines were educating them on how to treat a lady. Only to realize that nope ” Men will be men” and we need to suck it up and do what it takes to keep one. Society molds young women to be feeling inferior and insecure trying to tell them that if they don’t conform it is normal to be cheated on or mistreated.
And if you think about it, females throughout history have been beaten down, downtrodden, and been made to feel stupid. All females are at the effect of this history. It has been part of our society to consider females dumber. This bias has been passed down from generation to generation, and it doesn’t come only from the males, it comes from the females of the prior generations as well. They bought into the conditioning and passed it on to their children. Although it is not true that women are dumber, many societies believe that is true, and both sexes perpetuate that belief.
Teach your daughters to know their worth and to be the best version of themselves. Teach her that she can tame the dragon, splits the atom, owns the castle, and do it all in a really comfortable pair of shoes. Let her grow up idolizing women who were called “bossy” and “difficult” and “unconventional,” without feeling like she should apologies for it. Let your daughters learn the value of being self-motivated, self-reliant, and self-loved. Allow your daughters to grow up without the subtle weight of being “just a girl” that is historically thrust upon us with a smile and a pat on the head.
Some people amaze me, Some people disgust me, some people worry me, some people like me, some people love me, some people aren’t worth trusting, some people I give too much trust to, some people talk about me, some people defend me, some people love with all their heart, some people still don’t know how to love, some people care too much about material things, some people will always chase something they will never catch, some people have their priorities mixed up, some people don’t even have priorities, some people care, some people don’t, some people dream, some people are jealous of other people, some people lie, some people tell half the truth, some people are true to their self, some people forget about where they came from, some people appreciate the little things, some people have everything and still can’t be happy, some people are nice, some people are rude, some people bully other people, some people smile all the time. And I sit here thanking my lucky stars for allowing me to know some people!
I write to cope
I don’t choose to write my poems
poems choose me
it’s my get away time
it’s my soul’s language
My passion & how I manage
I reach out to others with my pen
for healing, releasing, awakening & even revenge
poems gives me a voice when I feel stifled
& give me hope for love delightful
I share the beauty my heart sees
all the passion, desire I need
my poems are a journey of discovery
a plethora of ideas come into being
a privilege to share as we lift our eyes seeing
poems gently landing in soft rhyme
hectic writing of stunning wonder time after time
I can only imagine a world where people understand that no matter what color you are, we all bleed red. That we all have feelings. We all crave to be loved. That every single one of us only has a short time on this Earth so every moment must be considered as precious. That one of the true beauty’s of life is embracing the different cultures and learning from them. A world where no one has an ill-conceived entitlement that they are superior or inferior to anyone else. Raise your children right. Raise them with a hope that they are going to embrace and learn every culture that this world has to offer as they grow up. Make it something that they look forward to, and not something they are scared of. Together, we can make this a better world . No president or leader is going to do that. It starts with us. It starts with YOU!
Every circumstance in life has the potential to be a learning experience. If you are open to it, life has a way of changing you. Every second you can change. Change the way you think. Change the way you view the world. Change the way you live. Change the way you treat others. You can always choose to change for the better or to change for the worst. It is all a choice. With those choices, come the repercussions and rewards. Whether good or bad, every experience is a lesson that you can allow to affect you in a positive or a negative way.
