Life has a way to reveal things to us about ourselves in the strangest way possible. If you haven’t yet had this experience with life then you haven’t yet lived.  I wake up to a world each day filled with so many miseries and unhappiness that it makes me extremely unhappy. The people who have the power to make a difference do not seem to care and the rest just go through each day with the intent to make people’s lives miserable.  I grew up in an environment where there were so many instances to feel how I feel today and never once did it happen.  Maybe because of how my parents raised me.  They knew the world I was coming into and so they tried their best to provide me with many distractions as long as they could so I could enjoy life and that I did.  They never ever placed any restrictions on where I went and what I did and for that I must say thank you to them a million times over.  Due to the lifestyle they gave me the opportunity to have I now realize how cruel this world can be.  People will see lifestyle and all they will think of is wealth and material possession but how far from the truth they are.  It was quite the contrary, I grew up in a home where materialism was not practised and as such, the wealth of life and a happy home was ours to take.  At the end of it all, my sisters and I were never left in need of anything, I miss those days.

Today, those memories are more priceless than I had thought them to be.  Every day I look around, God’s beauty is being ruined by people who think they possess the power to make decisions about the life of others.  You read the local and regional newspapers or you listen to the news, all you are faced with is death and people killing each other.  When and why have we become so ruthless that a life means nothing?  Take your readings and your curiosity internationally and you realize it is even worse.  One incident will wipe out an entire nation and the perpetrators have no remorse for their actions, it’s as though everything is a game.  You look around you and all you are seeing is little care and respect for life, instead we are being fed material gains and the idea to crave and worship vanity.  Why is that so important, it’s not as if you can take everything with you when you leave this earth?   The people who believe they can are the same ones who say debt and taxes are the only things in life that are sure.  Oh how ignorant they are about the truths of life.  Taxes, sure, but death is a lot more definite that debt.

I have made my peace with this world because the way I see things, your time to leave this earth is unknown but so close.  Not only that, I realize how hungry people are for power and just to get it they will turn on their own without giving the idea a second thought.  They try to control how people live their lives and those who are strong willed and strong minded they try to deprive them of what they think they control.  The funny thing is, that which they can take was never important to me in the first place.  I am not accustomed to being attached to people and things that do not matter because the purpose they serve is one that is not of any necessary good in my life.  They learn from society, and as such, what they have grown to know is the gold-plated bullshit that society presents them with.  Me, I learn from life and life has taught me that I must stand for what I believe in and if it means that I will die believing in it then so be it.  Some people strive to make others miserable but that level of happiness they will not get from me. Yes you have a choice, and a very easy one, choose whatever makes you happy and comfortable, everything else will fall into place.

SONG ENDS

So very often I hear people say that their ill-will and negative attitude was taught to them by life.  I say bullshit, that is a lesson that is on every syllabi of society, not life.  Life presents us with opportunities and experiences both good and bad, the lessons your learn from such experiences however are self-taught.  Society on the other hand, tells us that we don’t have a choice and the gullible individuals we are we swallow every bit of that which we are spoon-fed.   Society tells us we need the company of others to make ourselves happy and feel like we are worth something.  Yet we find ourselves surrounded by people who instead of making us feel like we are worth something, they make us feel horrible for their own amusement.  Think it’s a joke, look at what the corporate world markets to us then tell me how much of it is a need? Little, yet they tell us that we must have it and to get it we sell our souls and those who stand firm are ridiculed.  Well guess what, I am use to ridicule, I had a big head and big eyes as a child and I went to a Jamaican public school, so go ahead, ridicule me and see if I give a shit; tell me how much of a misfit I am because I don’t have a Facebook account.

In life, we always have a choice, that is the reason we have night and day, ying and yang, the haves and the have nots, the educated and the uneducated.  That last pair is what drives me so crazy.  The bullshit we are fed about how much education does for you and how much you need it is enough to make the crab shed its shell.  Education is important but not the formal one.  Formal and institutional education is just a facet of life that was marketed to separate and divide people.  If it was that important everyone would have it at their disposal to decide whether or not they want it.  Instead, most of us who had the opportunity to sit in a formal classroom and managed to leave with a piece of paper at the end make the others feel as though they are nothing.  Newsflash, there are so many individuals who have never gone through the school system or didn’t complete same, that are more brilliant than the formally educated.  One of the things I see happening is the craziness of forgetting where we came from before we had a piece of paper with a few selected letters of the alphabet.  Show me an Doctor of Philosophy of any other discipline and I will show you twenty, society-labelled John and Jane Does without a formal education that can do a better job.  They didn’t get the opportunity to go to any prestigious institution but instead they got their education at the Streetside College where they major in whatever hardships they are dealt on a daily basis.  Do they do English, my question is, do they need it?  They can still talk their way through or out of any situation they find themselves in.  We need to stop kidding ourselves about we need English to survive in the global market.  What!!! Many of these individuals don’t have access to such avenues and what global market, the most they see is what the cable stations show them.  Mathematics, aahhhm, nope but they can show you how to survive on a sum of money that can’t even buy a litre of gas in Jamaica.

At this point I am tired, tired of hearing my thoughts drive me crazy and tired of feeling my hard beat faster because of some level of injustice I see taking place. I just know that people who set themselves on a level where all they do is look down on others all have to cope and face two of the same things as the people they look down at, TAX and DEATH!  People, live your lives as you feel comfortable doing, do not make yourselves uncomfortable because society says so.  Your discomfort is their playing ground and living rooms, it’s about time you turn the tables. Live your lives, be happy and see how miserable they become.  The choice? Whatever makes you happy…
