Starwatching

This post was written after the past few days of starting to write a post but not feeling any desire to write more than a line or two.

In the world we live in
Where politics remains a circus
Where people put their feet in their mouth
Where nonsense & stupidity prevails
Where news is a warped form of entertainment

A world where barrels cause inflation
(Donkey Kong would be sad)
Where human want for profit > all

A time of tragedy, suffering & pain
Where some question the end of the world
Where lies, brainwashing & cults seem… common

Yet

A time where arts flourish
Where great leaders rise above & beyond

A time when people start to reflect
When loved ones are given more importance

A time when more go for passion
When a job is more than merely earning benjamins euros

A time for inner peace amidst turmoil
When we look beyond the next crisis

Maybe this is the actual new face of globalized civilization

Postnote: It felt good to write this. Somehow.

  5. Gazing at creation’s glow… Standing in the midst of a multitude… Getting lost in translation…

    In a world of twisted values and pressures to conform, there is…

    HOPE for the hopeless…
    REST for the weary…
    JOY after sorrow…
    HELP to all who finds…
    ONE who strings our lives…
    LOVE…

    “For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has?” Romans 8:24
