This is an unusually sombre tone for me, but I wrote a poem and I wanted to share it with the world. Sometimes it’s so hard to understand humanity. You ask anyone you know, anyone you pass in the street, if they want wars, the answer would be no every single time. Literally no one wants wars, yet here we are, the same place we’ve been forever.
I hope sooner or later our love will win the day and the killing will stop. I think I echo everyone’s sentiments, when I say, we, the human race, earth’s children have had enough. When will they hear us?
The bombs they fell The lives as well After explosions came the cries The hate was sewed And fed again Within the vicious lies And you yearned for more The soil you craved Replaced with nowt but dust The soil is yours To do with what you will But it’s paid for with our blood And though no one wants To kill and maim It happens everyday And our love combined, has no voice To make the evil go away You, the twisted soul That’s blood runs cold The small people feel your scorn And none of them Are at fault For the coming of the storm You bloody pigs of war That feed and prey Burn every boy and girl You sit there on a throne of rubble But at least you own the world
I will carry on the usual shenanigans and laughs of course, but I never want people think it’s because I don’t care, or that it doesn’t hurt me as much as it does the rest of us. It’s because that’s my way of spreading light. I make you smile and for a moment, that stops the tears.
I hope that peace is something that will one day find us, until that day, stay safe and keep on shining.
First, I’ll start by apologising for not writing as many of these articles as I should have, frankly my only excuse is 2020, but you know. It’s a new year so hey ho. At last, the latest in the Human Wellbeing series is here, and today we’re going to cover the subject of ego.
My friends, fellow humans, good and wondrous souls, you are the soldiers of the revolution. For this revolution we need no weapons, (hey, put that pitchfork down, I said we need ‘no’ weapons). We will shed no blood, cause no pain, we are soldiers of the Joy Revolution or #Joyrevolution.
Positive thinking in its simplest form, is to find the good in a situation. It’s searching for the point of view that will show you that even in a negative situation you will become a stronger, better or a more well-rounded person.
This week’s human wellbeing blog is an unselfish one. It’s about friendship. Having and being a good friend is one of the most rewarding and beautiful parts of life, it’s good for your heart, good for your soul and wonderful for your own wellbeing.
Mindfulness is a very wide subject and you can go into it as deeply as you want. What it means is for mind and body to be in a state of present. To be where you are, doing what you’re doing, without distraction from the next task or what the future will hold.
