A Simple Perspective


Imagine the world I grew up in.

I am nearly 30, I remember mobiles that couldn't send texts, email had never been heard of, CD ROM hadn't been invented yet, my first computer couldn't log on to the internet because it didn't exist then and TV had only 4 channels, the only way to stay in touch was by a hand written letter and yeah I really miss that.

Sometimes that’s all we have.

The basic knowledge that the ones we love are alive and ok. So we may continue to love them, as much as what is possible within ourselves, that way sometimes the world becomes truly magical, then we realise that the world we see, it’s the same world we saw as a child, though just with a greater sense of reasoning. But a reasoning, that can only be only based on education and personal experience.

You see when u say how much u appreciate technology

For the means to decipher words disadvantaged by the written hand, I realise how much mankind has become so accustomed to the very things that will ultimately lead to our destruction, dependence on speed of technology, the taking for granted of oil, the abundance of free choice which gets manipulated by governments to arm the east to be bombed by the west.

We the people

Who are the very perpetrators of our own demise, because we don't have to live this way but it’s too damn easy and set in our ways to change to anything better

    Definitely remember and know that world of yesterday - a memory blast from the past.
    Agree with your viewpoint wholeheartedly regarding mankind's destruction on earth!
    Very well written. Thank you for sharing, RoseAnn (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
