Taught to believe in a blond-haired-blue-eyed savior that darns the halls of our places of worship.
Instructed to be thankful for a decent paying job that breaks our spirits slowly over years, just because we need those medical benefits.
Frightened to take a chance or make that leap of faith and follow dreams because we don’t want to loose that false security of our 9-5.
Putting on blinders so that we don’t see what’s really going on in this great big beautiful world, because if we do we just might loose our seat in the hereafter.
Afraid to step beyond what we’ve been taught out of restrictions placed on us since the day we were born.
Confined to the lessons dictated to us by leaders who tell us that they know who, what, when, where, how & why we should lead our lives.
Too proud to show weakness or feelings because if you are living right then you shouldn’t have any worries, nor should you have any second guesses.
Dictated to by a media that tells you how too look, how to walk, what to wear, what to drive, how to stay young, how to love, how to hate, and the time of the year that you should be giving and showing you care.
Memorized by technology and her advances; driven to wait outside all night just to be the first to have and own that new “thing”.
Afraid to move beyond that crabs-in-a-barrel mentality and rise above the ranks to a higher purpose, and too afraid to allow another to climb outside.
Creating new lives without the monetary or mental means to cultivate and care for them so that they can lead productive lives.
Hooked on blaming and expecting something for nothing, instead of utilizing higher education and working from the bottom and rising to the top.
Too busy trying to be a friend instead of being a parent and role model.
Too self-absorbed and insecure to chase a dream instead of a piece of ass.
Too wrapped up in outer-appearance to really harvest inner-beauty.
(I’ll add more onto this later, but for right now these are the things that moved me right now)
