Figured if there was ever a time to get back to writing now is the time, hello all, missed you guys and missed it here.
Sincere apologies have been away for weeks, truth is have been struggling with writing for awhile now, don’t worry, i haven’t lost the passion for it (smiles). So how are you all doing? Fine i hope.
Today I will be talking about a world where everything isn’t about you. By natural impulses and without apologies the first instinct of man is to protect (think of) himself/herself. But for a husband it is to protect his wife, for a mother it is to protect her child, for a priest it is to protect the congregation and his/her faith, for a CEO it is to protect his/her ring of businesses, for a teacher it is to protect his/her student, for a lawyer it is to protect his/her client. At least,so should it be. By now you get the gist, if not, stay with me.
Here is the thing, the world, regardless of what you have concluded actually isn’t about you. We need to create a world where people around us don’t just exist but are very much settled in our hearts. A world where you don’t just help out but you are also making sacrifices (for all the right reasons ofcourse) , and sometimes putting yourself on the line. A world where the first thing that comes to mind is not how you can have it all, but how “we” can have it all.
You wake up in the morning, with your soul still in your body, it’s still that same you, no surprise there. You begin your day either eventful or not, i believe at some point we ought to think of another even though our bodies haven’t been possessed by another’s soul and our souls haven’t been possessed by another’s body.
I look around at the evils of the world, and i realized we won’t have so much of it eating into the core of our societies if only we started living for each other and not just ourselves. There is always a young boy out there who needs tutoring, a man out there who needs shelter, a sick person out there who needs health. If we could just reduce the degree of “self awareness” and increase our sense of communism then the world would definitely be a better place, no doubt.
For as much as you want to be committed to your job, your wife needs you. Priest, as much as you want to be committed to the church, your family needs you, so you see, it really isn’t about you or just your loved ones. If that happens to shock you then you have work to do.
At the end, what am saying is: be a little more selfless.
Brothers were butchered with evil
purely diluted with rage,came
of age after a millennium of nursing
a pain of what could not be.
Spirits crawled to surface
with a vengeance,heads rolled
in that instance,uncontrollable.
Watched lives leave bodies,
gruesome kind of massacre.
Laid down in shrinked faith,
at the expense of my escape,
remembered a vow i made to bow
at fellow brethren’s needs.
In broken bones and bleeding hands
i raise sword against these demons.
Their level of heinous frightens me not.
Caught in the middle of a beastly
war with a hunger fetched from
hade’s own infinite well.
How can all then be well?
Souls crying their lives
out of them,with nothing else
to offer,am their last defence.
I fight,with a sacred kind
of loyalty to all,not just royalty.
Could it be my seek for reward?
or a quest for popularity?
For i battle even at the sight
of death staring at me in malice,
angry i saved many from him.
No,it couldn’t be,my mortality
is far too precious,yet i place it
on the line for fellow mortals.
A selflessness in Category A.
P.S: Am back !
