It's hard to not write about lust, heartbreak, war, unhappiness, troubles, insecurities, and hate in the kind of world that we're living in today. Its already bad enough that negative thoughts and ideas seem to travel as fast as the speed of light yet thoughts and words on positivity, love, and happiness are many times viewed as the facade of an unrealistic dreamer.
I was riding the train sometime this winter. This guy came in the wagon I was in and began telling us he was going to recite a poem. Of course, I pulled out my phone as soon as he said the word "recite" and started recording just because thats what I do (lol.) The only (and most important thing) that I FAILED to do was take this amazing poet's information down because when he finished his second piece, he rushed out of the train, and It truly saddened me.
Upon the commencement of this remarkable poem I realized something very interesting. I was probably the only person paying attention to what this man was saying. I felt bad. Not only did I feel like poetry will never make its way to the kinds of masses that violence, nudity, drama and other things with means for discretion have made it to everyone's reach and attention but I also was baffled by the fact that people on the train were giving ME the crazy eye because I was actually recording him!
Like, the blasphemy of this dude entering the train, running his mouth about how "Power is already in OUR possession, the key is to embrace it" as if its baboonery and not newsworthy information. It truly kills me. In the last 24 hours I've seen more gruesome photos on instagram of the bombing in Boston than any of the motivational, inspirational, meaningful words, thoughts and prayers writers and people all around the world (combined) have shared on social media sites. Not that my heart and prayer doesn't go out to everyone, but it shouldn't confuse people. We focus more on negativity. Negative energy has found a way to travel faster within the human race than any other species in the world. At least today it feels that way.
Look, Im just about tired of writing about it, talking about it and letting it consume my mind. If we don't change our ways of thinking and help ourselves AS A WHOLE become a better HUMANITY, shit will only to continue to get more real, FASTER (and do pardon my french.) I will continue to spread my love, joy, happiness and motivation through my writing, just for MY piece of mind. As for you, you decide what helps you sleep at night, or what will help contribute change the minds of those who follow.
Oh yea, and here's the poem! If anybody can find this dude please contact me. I'd love to be in contact with yet another person with a similar mindset to mine and he absolutely deserves all the credit for this entire blog post.
Good day, and enjoy, and spread the love!
