Today it just feels too much!
Too much cruelty, too much indifference – and it’s all unnecessary. That is just the worst heartbreaking part.
It’s unnecessary for animals to suffer for humans to survive.
It’s unnecessary for one child to be starving in the dirt, while another is wheeled around in a gold-plated stroller.
What words can I find… what am I not saying… to make people take the blinkers off.
Don’t they realise this entire way of being on Earth is rigged, and we need a new system?
Don’t the tentacles of despair curl around their hearts and mind, threatening to choke them in the dark hours of night?
Do people switch off their feeling because otherwise they would go mad from knowing?
Maybe they do what I used to do…. drown their sorrows in a bottle of vodka to numb the pain of too much feeling?
Maybe these horribly violent games and movies desensitize people to the point where they do not appreciate the anguish in the physical reality?
Maybe they are too scared to notice because of a little voice that whispers “that could be you”.
Are their hearts closed?
What about those who rejoice in the suffering and pain of defenceless ones, whether they have fur or skin, 2 legs or 4, or wings.
How do I get up tomorrow with this weight on my consciousness and make it through another day while animals are being tortured and dying? How do I not lash out or bow out?
How can I look at my toddler and not shudder wondering what the future holds for him in this time of crazy-modified foods and social fabric tearing apart?
I can’t, but somehow I'm just going to have to.
