Open up your mind/ Don’t be afraid to cry/ Everybody telling you all of their own nothing/ Hold me and tell me your everything. I don’t care what they say/ Only words of small minds projecting their own insecurities, too scared to realize real potential.
Real power is within the self. When you resist their need to conform, this will make you stand apart from the crowd. You will see the fear and regret that they did not resist the pressure to assimilate into a senseless pattern of thought. The only response left is to project themselves unto everyone else. After all is said and done, their remains of lives wasted are ifs and wishes. You walk away being firm in resolve to be more than the example of a mind stuck on a path not able to see the other roads that are around.
However, you must try to help them turn from the path of a mind held in muck and mire. It will be their choice to accept or deny your advice. Let them open their mind, listen without as they release what is within. This will be the most difficult part of the exchange as you are being attacked verbally with preconceived notions or uninformed opinions.
Destiny such a fickle thing/ Hope soaring, Angel wing/ Per chance to dream/ Dreams fragmenting, Loosened consciousness/ Invading nightmares dance freely/ Realized fantasy, Alluring reality/ Dreams, By-gone eons cessation/ Equilibrium maturing, Soul liberation/ Madness entrapped, Soul bonded/ Freedom fleeting, Sheep bleating/ Darkness advancing, Humanity fading/ Animals breeding, Resources depleting/ Lofty ideals dashed away/ Pride Courage Honour Dignity/ Human strengths gone forever/ Such fancy false dreams/ Ages ago lost, forgotten/ Hold thought, Sight spark/ Eternal flame, Hope ignited/ Per chance to dream once more
The United States of America is going through difficult tests. We are currently at a split in the road. This country was built on Unification, yes granted their have been injustices. However, if there is any hope of fixing the problems at hand we must become unified.
A well known tool of Psyops is controlling the emotions of a person. We have seen this used many times recently to incite riots. Once the riot starts, the Media then spins the story.
“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.” John Fitzgerald Kennedy
This is bigger than any one State or Country, it affects the whole world. I am not suggesting revolution of any kind. I am suggesting everyone question the various Governments that are in place. The Government exists because the People agreed to it. Not the other way around, which has been happening for a long time. Before people vote or promote a candidate, they should question the motives of said candidate.
It has been a long Eight Years with this administration in the USA.
During that time:
- People have been arrested under false charges
- People have been silenced when dissenting
- Peaceful organizations have been infiltrated by instigators
- Whistle blowers have been ridiculed when revealing the truth
- Deals have been made in secret
- Organizations have been targeted by the IRS
- The people have been spied upon by their own Government, in the lie of security
I can see for miles, past all the trials.
The goal is in sight, down below I face a fight.
Never told it would be arduous, so far it has been adventurous.
Wishing I would fly over the parts making me cry.
This journey has been tiresome, always more heartache to come.
Trudge through a field of pain, told experience is what I will gain.
In the field I can not see what lies beyond.
In my mind remains the horizon.
Others gather at my side, in unison we stride.
For riches or glory, they listen to my story.
Bright sunlit crystal castles lining hills of purple majesty.
Losing some along the way, on this path we stay.
Though this journey has been arduous, so far it has been adventurous.
Down below was a fight, goal is in sight. Trials are all past, for miles I can see.
At the apex.
When I realized that my circumcision was not normal, I researched as much as I could. I found that it started due to religious reasons. Later it continued for health reasons, if the intact penis is not cleaned it will become infected.
In current times, people are fighting against Female Genital mutilation. Yet, not so many are fighting against Male Genital mutilation.
Is there a difference between mutilation of Males and Females? If considering Female mutilation more important an issue than Male mutilation, is this not discrimination?
To begin with, I have known that I am gay since I was younger than 18. I had to hide it from religious leaders and my family. When I came out, I was told that it is a phase, you are just eccentric or some other excuse to not accept the truth. “Omg, so familiar with this cliché,” you say.
Here is the difference, I did not conform to social programming that gay equals effeminate. I still like working on cars, fixing things around the house and other “masculine” things.
In these times it is familiar to see gay men in the media as the archetype of gay men everywhere. However, in reality these are nothing more than stereotypes forced upon the young. It is more acceptable for a gay man to have a soft voice, outrageous hand movements and a crass attitude. It is not acceptable for a gay man to have a hard voice, subtle hand movements and a polite attitude.
A scenario: Two men, one masculine and one effeminate, walk into a gay bar. They are both drinking and talking to guys. The effeminate guy is insulted, then assaulted. He fights back and the assaulter is removed from the bar. The masculine guy is insulted, then assaulted. He fights back and he is removed from the bar.
To some the scenario may seem ridiculous. It does happen but you will not know about it. It is not reported in the media, that would show the discrimination still existing in the gay community.
As for myself, I would rather be masculine than be forced by social stereotypes to conform to something that is not me.
