A Misguided Pilgrimage

I often think of the last scene of the witch on the Wizard of Oz, her cries of what a world, what a world. For one so powerful to be taken down by a little girl and a glass of water. Yes what a world it is.

Well here we are, 2016 and what a year it has been already. Still no flying cars, no commercial jetpacks, shit they are just getting back into Virtual Reality. how 90's is that?... 

Well there is that special lexus hover board, however I can't even afford a used lexus let alone the price of the board and the designer track you would need to build with it. I also have never attempted to gain a learners license, so any car would be kinda pointless. Now I can't say I have never driven, I am actually a good but slightly nervous driver. Actually that is bullshit, I am down right annoying. Liked a stoned grandma 2 hours early for bingo annoying. 
Trust me I am better off the roads . I also have grown to enjoy the face people make when I tell them I don't drive. It's like 

Truth is I was never really responsible enough to drive. I was highly destructive and I drank like a fish out of water. Getting a license would have meant my death or someone elses, and that is something I could never live with. It's kinda hard to concentrate with Ice giving my that wtf  next Friday look. Where was I getting at with this trailer trash version of the future?* Trump running for President, equality now gone to lifting only one group higher while hating the so called oppressors who have had the same choice as them or any of us on what shade of skin they were born with. We are different colors, whoop did dee doo basil. Like all life we come in different forms. Even those deemed without life come in many shapes, I myself think we have the idea of life all wrong. It is within out arrogance that we deem human intelligence as a guideline, and look where that idea has taken us. We are the lions, sheep, whales and wolves. Well we are made up of the same stuff as those creatures, along with everything else.

Our existence like the rock has every right to be here, and should not be placed lower than any other. Every bug wiped out by toxic chemicals, every animal extinct by the hands of man, before us or now, and now, and now. And our species, the ones we hold so high. We treat each  other like coins to be wasted in wars creating more wealth, while killing all the true value. Fighting constantly like children, because you don't learn shit, you are children. And the people follow...They separate  us with blind illusions of grandeur and stupid things like color, opinions, sex, gender, fuck nowadays you name it, someone is pissed off about it.  We are part of the tree, part of the fungus that connects all plants. This is our home.
Part of this ball (and yes I mean a ball, not a square with ice walls and with some limp god looking at us like a snow globe of idiocracy) that they seem to want to destroy. Placing value on everything, life holding little. Our trees are being cut, or fish are being over fished. Our people are hiding in fear while our so called leaders fight each other in a sick game of risk. They spend more money talking about the island of garbage in the ocean than they do cleaning it. And what is on everybody's mind?
At least now they give you a trophy for trying.

You're special and you are special...

Life is more than custom ads, clothes don't really make the man. As with clothes don't define the woman. Yes we all want to be heard, we all want the best for our groups that we deem higher then anyone else... I don't care if you carry cross or opinion, the world is more than any one belief structure. It is of all beliefs, all opinions, as long as they don't form the rules for anyone else. Wolves in office and distrust the norm. The snake watches through every corner, it's eye more then floating over a dead pyramid. We are our own worst masters, just slaves for the picking chasing after something someone else owns. They want us to feel alone, blinded by fear of the unknown. We need more to life than darkness, we need not stand alone in a forest slowly fading away.

We need more togetherness, less walls and negative emotion. Stop hating a person for things we have no control over. Life is a gift. The fact that we can feel love makes it even more powerful. It is something that is freely given if you look for the right arms.We need to stop running from our parents mess, and start cleaning things up. We need only one cause to change the world, one we can all agree on. We just need to figure out what that one cause will be.

*(Disclaimer- There is nothing wrong with mobile homes, yes done right they can look very beautiful, they still are not a mansion let alone a nice 3 bedroom beach house)

Yeah...this 2016 year is totally not that future we all were waiting for. No super cool technologies, no robots.

Bacaladito do Portugal said...

The portugee economy is in the toilet, and droves of it's citizens are fleeing to neighboring Spain to work just to put food on the table! Those who don't go to Spain are swimming, or jumping on bannana boats to go to Angola or Mozambique just to sell their body for cod to feed their families. The slightly better off portugee are flying to Brasil to live in a favela that is much better than the poor, decrepid conditions they live in now; at least here they can eat.

The portugee are an ignorant bunch stuck in a mental time-warp that only focus on a national soccer team that has never won a single Euro or World Cup and "how" good things were in the distant past rather than focusing on their now deteriorated, non-existant economy, and how bad things really are today.

This is "why" they can't seem to see the log stuck in their eyes but see the splinters in everybody elses eyes. I do find it ironic that they are racist toward Spain, Angola, Mozambique and Brazil only to later go look for a better life in these countries!!
