I’m a bit loopy, misunderstood, weird,
Yet this brand of cuckoo, is seldom revered,
If I’d been alive in centuries past,
The powers that be, would section my ass.
My eccentric views are offensive to some,
Those wanting to keep us in turmoil and dumb,
So the search continues, in the hope that I’ll find,
More wonderful, passionate, peculiar minds.
Having your own voice, being original and independent, takes at least a smidgeon of lunacy. There is a script that we are all supposed to be reading from, an expected way to think and act, which keeps us circling the same problems, yet never overcoming them.
These encouraged behaviours, give a huge advantage to those who deem this necessary or “normal”… giving them control of our choices, our emotions, our thought patterns, our motivations, simply put, control our lives!
To go against these protocols, you are often seen as a lunatic and a trouble maker. For the ones upholding and enforcing these protocols, however, I have a message, quoting the wise soothsayer in Kung Fu Panda 2, “the cup you fill has no bottom!”
Their efforts will amount to nothing, because our well-being, prosperity and happiness is not their goal. More and more of us will begin to see through their lies, start thinking outside the box, redefine what happiness means to us, and gradually reclaim control of our lives.
Love and Respect always,
