If all humanity looked at what was wrong with the world, turned to their neighbor, and asked them what THEY saw, they would probably find their answers to be incredibly similar.
We know who we are. Who we want to be. Who we don’t want to be.
So then why don’t we live what we believe? Why do we stay in our silence? Why do we continue to tighten our own chains?
If we all stood up, and did the right thing, I wonder what would happen.
We look, and we see.
Some of us DO.
We admire those who act, because we know that is what we want to do.
But I’ve heard too many times- I love what you’re doing, but I don’t think I could do that.
Wherever we are, however the world is, it’s familiar, and we like familiar.
People would rather face every pain, anxiety, depressing thought, as long as it kept them safe.
We would rather suffer than stand out.
In too many stories, peace and happiness is foreign.
Therefore, it is scary.
We were built to be afraid of the unknown,
of the mystery
It has kept us alive forever
yet we’re getting to the point in time that what we know can no longer save us.
What we know could be more harmful than what we don’t know.
We long for peace, for better days, to break from the box, but,
lets be honest.
The box is comfortable.
Why burn down the place we grew up in?
Good for you
When somebody breaks the box, stamps it down, lights it on fire, and finds their voice.
Whatever voice that is.
They say good for you, because that’s what they want, but for so many
it’s easier to dream than to do.
They’d rather stay in their chains with everybody else.
Let their own minds torment them.
Let their truth be smothered
because the truth of humanity is frightening.
In a good way.
We can create so much destruction with a simple gun.
What happens when humanity bands together and uses their power of light to create something better?
What happens then?
Infinitely more strength for infinitely more good.
We have more power than we could ever know.
The only reason there is so much dark is because the dark is easy.
It doesn’t take much effort to destroy something.
With the light comes effort.
The light is stronger.
The light will always win.
The only reason it isn’t the only thing that’s left is because it’s easier to destroy than to create.
Let’s create something better.
