A game without rules this life is
A stage set for everyone to lose
Only fools will strive to understand the madness that this is
After all vanity has no real meaning
The hidden consciousness we have cannot be seen
Until we surrender to the fact of the irony
life is make belief I tell thee
Brothers and sisters, let’s make a great play out of it
Life is a tale of no tales. A weird jumble of fun inconsistent meaning. When I think about what it means for one to live, I feel like bursting into laughter. Sometimes though the feeling is closer to tears. Life cannot be explained. Some might call it vanity, some call it our temporary home, some might say it is a tale told by an idiot… But life is so complexically – simple that it has no definition. But life is meant to be lived well and for discovery of meaning and purpose. Only when will discover this, will we reach the next stage of understanding ourselves.

“Don’t dim your light to make anyone comfortable. Live your life as a standard for yourself. Don’t let the fear of judgment trap you. Let them call you anything they like, but as long as you are not perverted or hurting anyone, ignore the calls for conformity. Shine so bright like a crazy star.”
“It’s that seed of thought that is planted, enlightening the human mind of the wonders of possibilities. The things that we can do from a mind of creation are stunningly endless. It’s a fine dance between our consciousness and the subconscious. We realize how close to gods we really are. A glimpse into a pool of our potentials can be described as the start of inspiration. However, it starts just as it dies. Just like a seed planted, our destiny for greatness is up to how much we utilize our actions.”
I had realized something a long time ago but remembered again recently. While registering for a PayPal account, I spotted something. A feature read that it was a good source of making payments for online shopping. Why this statement stood out to me was simple, in this world we live in there are always so many mediums in which we are told we can spend our money. Sometimes to even earn money from a venture you are required to spend some money. Money that some don’t even have. A good example of this would be WordPress and paid blogging before you start earning from your blog.
Everyone is always suggesting new ways for us to spend. It was ironical because the reason I was opening an account in the first place was as a means to earn money from the internet especially via foreign sources when possible. I was not interested in going on a foreign online shopping spree.
Nobody really teaches us how to get money to spend really, but society knows how to tell us of the various ways we can spend. Constantly we are bombarded with adverts of several different products. New products are created everyday as well, non stop. There is always a way in which a product can ‘change’ our mundane lives according to people of the marketing world , but most don’t really care if our lives get better, as long as they earn those crisp notes.This is why today , we have a lot of frustrated youths, the images of the numerous things they can buy contradicts to the level if information of how to generate wealth for themselves.
How to solve this problem?
Really I don’t know how such problem can be solved at large in this society. But I do know that individually we have power to resist whatever. We should strive to teach and learn how to gain financial independence rather than pursue the latest spending fads then complain on ‘the lack of money’. Our spending power should match the level of our financial freedom.
Just my thoughts
Poems give me life
Makes me breathe
Puts me to sleep
Poems brings me chills
Turns on a light
Gives me feels
Poems turn me on
Shut me down
Making this little girl cry
Poems wake me up
Tells me to be strong
Works me up
Poems tells me truths
Gives me voice
Makes me smile
Poems reeks of lies
Hits me hard
Makes me smile
Poems, my very life source
