watch them argue
“you cannot kill an unborn child!”
as they scream
quoting their scriptures

but

aren’t those babies
they fold their hands
and
watch being murdered
in Gaza?


tell me
does your scripture
turn numb
at the sight of brown skin
and
children of Arabs?

show me
what holy book
gives you the right
to plead superior

and i swear
i will be the first in line
burning it to ashes.

brown skinned. Gaza

"The Europeans", the young man would say, "wiped out from history all trace of the cultural presence of blacks in western civilisation, worse still, they now mean to destroy all our traditions, our whole memory."

Rainy Season - Jose Eduardo Agualusa 

When I read this last night, I thought about the backlash going on about the Exodus movie. 

Destroy the idea that men should respect women because we are their daughters, mothers, and sisters. Reinforce the idea that men should respect women because we are people.

Kill the idea that naivety is an unforgivable flaw but cynicism is just wisdom, murder it, chop it up and serve it for dinner, I don’t care, just end this bullshit idea that it’s better to hate than to love and better to rot in miserable bitter resignation than to hope for the best.

I don’t particularly believe in soul mates.
What I believe in is that you need different people in your life.
Your life cannot be about one person.
Your spouse.
Your children.

We shall all die.

I shall die.

Tomorrow, next month, next year, twenty years.

I do not know when, but it shall happen.

Many are the times when I question what the purpose of it all is… and of course many a philosopher has tried to tell us. 

"Leave the world better than you found it", "Be Happy", "Live your dreams", "Be all you can be", "Help others"….etc……

I shall die, and maybe then, I will know the purpose.
