21 years have gone by.
Nowadays the world is rotten.
Honesty has been forgotten.
It’s all a swindle.
So get what you can
from your fellow man.
The biggest of them all.
Bragging, pandering to everyone.
Pretending it’s a humble act.
Appeasing the wise and the fool,
catering to the warm and the cool.
We often get the ‘feeling’ of something, it goes normally accompanied by the ‘knowing’. There’s no knowing without feeling. Feeling is first. In order to know (I am talking about inner knowing, not knowledge, please note), we must feel first. The soul comes before the mind. We can push down the feeling with the mind, but the feeling is always there, no matter what. Feeling is the secret. It’s a simple, yet powerful concept.
Can’t you hear their frantic laughter?
We are stupid, foolish, malleable, weak, predictable.
Orgies of fun at our expense.
Like them, I am growing an extra layer or two.
Funny how strangely I am enjoying this.
Where are all the Michelangelos gone?
The Greek sculptures of glowing, exuberant, healthy men and women,
the blossoming and naivety of Renaissance paintings,
and the enchanting houses of fairy tales
that mother used to read to me as a child?
