world of wiffledust

where creative minds can interact

Surrounding the world is a thick mist & dark shadow

It threatens to take over, suppressing all light & hope

Hate, cruelty, & greed have such power, it tries to sway all to follow

It has the capability to leave a soul feeling nothing but empty & hollow

 

It defiantly smirks & tells hope, joy, & love that its time here is done

That instead it shall takes its place among the hearts of men

Already it has begun to corrupt hearts once noble & true

Seeking to destroy each & every soul, including me & you

 

Promising power, riches, fame, & fortune to all who succumb

Not revealing its true intentions, to win our favor & then let us destroy one another

Will you fight against the evil that appears to have the upper hand?

Will you with those brave enough be willing to take a stand?

 

Upon our fortresses, we must gather & fight with all that is within us

Hold our shields over our hearts & resist the urge to give in to it

Standing tall together with our heads held up high

Letting society’s darkness know it will never truly win, no matter how hard it does try

 

It tells us we must quietly blend in, to give in to its propaganda

To believe it, to not see what it is really trying to accomplish

Divide & conquer is & has always been its true goal

To be our master forever more is its desired role

 

Diets, plastic surgery, designer clothes, & other frivolous things

Do not stand out, just blend in, give up your identity

But then we become what it wants us to be, clones of one another

Forgetting that we are bound together as sisters & brothers

 

So to you all I say this now, do not give in to its false promises

Do not let it divide us as it’s been trying relentlessly to do

Stand tall & be proud of the individual that you were born to be

And never forget that within each of us is love, hope, joy, & loyalty

It is how I feel about the world today. It's how I feel society wants us to be, not unique and the people we're born to be, but instead it feels like we should all just blend in and conform. But, I never will and I am proud of that! :) I want others around me to be proud of who they are too and be unafraid to be themselves....no matter if they don't look like the glamorous people on the magazines, make tons of money, etc etc. Be you always!

do your words truly reflect how you feel about the world today? or, is this a moment in time when you were feeling a shadow overcome your life? Curious because I love to know about the process of creativity and how you came to feel what you feel above. Thank you for sharing
