As illnesses grow, mental disorders worsen, and the race for cures continues it’s relentless journey, I find myself increasingly worried. I’ve never been an emotional child, but as of recent, I find stray tears after I watch as so much a documentary of a dying child, or see someone out on the street, a homemade, worn duvet cradling their heads, the look of lost hope dimming their tattered features.
Why is it we do not care? Because we simply choose not too, for many think we do not gain anything out of this selfless deed. Most of us are too filled with apathy, our hearts turned to coal, to the point we look out into the world, and forget about the dying soul across the street, the hungry family who seeks but one act of kindness, or the canine dragging his legs across the pavement. We close our eyes, our minds to empathy. Even a mentally ill child is not worthy of our help, or an elderly who only needs for you to hold their door open, so, if not even then, should we expect anything better from us, then we are certainly dooming ourselves, and sometimes I wonder about standing atop the tallest building, and leaning forward, wondering, would people come near, with concern framing their expression, or because it’s just another event that captures their prying eyes? I sometimes go for the latter, mostly actually.
I’m not saying I am anything better, and I feel truly ashamed, because I feel like I should stand up beside those I chastise, for I am hypocrite. I see and hear about millions falling to their deaths, innocent blood spreading and tainting across battered and evil hands. Well, it hurts me deeply, because I felt we could have done something, as a country, as a nation. We have so much to offer, food, shelter, and a few acts of kindness to spare. I appeal myself as well, because without the ones that care, then we cannot expect anything from anyone else.
So, drawing back to what I said in my first sentence, I would love to blog about different diseases, problems, disorders, and anything anyone would love to ask of me. In this we all win, so, I ask that you try it out. I’ll try my best. 😉
I realize this post was headed nowhere, but I’ve just been sick and tired of all this fighting, all this corruption, all this sadness. I know it doesn’t affect me directly, but to the family who’s lost another member, a husband, a wife, a child, a mother or a beloved father, my sorrows and condolences to you all.
