Get Real

July 12, 2015

 

It's not enough

to say you

 

feel good

 

as this feel good revolution has taught us to do

 

through positive thought

manifestation

 

What if hurting someone

makes you feel good

 

what then

 

What if 

feeling good

makes you blind to another person's pain

 

You can't feel the feelings of another

so their feelings are irrelevant to your own person

 

But what if you were 

one

 

what then

 

If you could feel their suffering

would you feel more compassion

 

We are entrenched in a system

charlatans have thoughtfully designed

to keep us deaf, dumb, numb and blind

 

Inspirational talks are wonderful

they make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside

but they don't change the system from the inside

 

People are starving

Wars are raging

Banks and Corporations are ruling

We are losing more and more of our freedoms

 

while we chase mindless nothings

hopeless, empty dreams

 

You can pretend it isn't happening -

that this fragile world isn't collapsing

that the enviornment isn't hurting

species aren't facing extintion

human rights aren't diminishing

 

Or you can open to the discomfort and bad feelings

of the real situation

 

Our honoured -Democracy- isn't working
