So I wrote this in 2011 during the Presidential Election. This was after I had attempted to exercise my right to vote. Plus it was the first time I was even eligible to vote. I went with my mom and I have to say it was a loooong, exhausting and enlightening day.
It was the only post on my old blog so I decided to put it on here. Have no idea why I named it ‘what it is now’, but it made sense to me then so I’ll just keep it as it is. So here it goes;
Seems peaceful but far from it
Why do we deceive ourselves?
We all know what is going on, yet we sit quietly and just stare.
We continue to wait, and wait we will ‘Cause nothing will change with this attitude.
We claim to be ONE but we are far from it.
We are just individuals, bound by a name,
Individuals who are driven by religion, driven by ethnicity, driven by the need for power.
We live in such a dark place,
A place where light is abnormal and darkness isn’t
We claim we want change, but do we really?
We are caught up with the idea of change not change itself.
‘Cause change does not come by saying we want it.
It does not come by claiming we want it, it comes by taking action and doing something. And if that ‘something’ fails to be done, we will sit and stare, into the DARKNESS until there is no sliver of LIGHT, of HOPE!
