I find that of a lot of people. My relatives mostly. They are happy to be status quo, ignorant of the things around them, and it's as if when I speak
to them, I'm speaking to a television. It glosses over their faces, obvious in it's obliviousness that it is not sinking in.
I rarely visit my relatives, and if I do it is under subtle protest. But what irks me, is despite it all, they have everything I do not. They fall
within a normal family as regulated by mundane society. They have the big fancy hd surround sound tv, despite having gone bankrupt a number of times.
They have the toys their kids want - laptops, ipods, etc.
It's not that I envy them, I almost pity them. They don't see the world as it is, at least as I see it. I don't pretty up the world I live in. I know
it's eat or be eaten. I choose to let those willing to be participants in that, go forth and whither.
It's a complete irony. I see the things that they do not, yet they flourish in their own self made sense of worth. And yet, nothing will really come
of it. As much as they are the problem, they offer nothing by way of change. Nor do I to be honest. It's not my lot. I choose to sit aside.
Not part of the problem, per se, but also not part of any solution. Just content with the little I have, happy to help people in more need than I, but
absolutely never contributing to the ailments that plague people like my family, who must constantly maintain a false standard of living.
ahh but then, I choose not to bring children into this world. My burden lays on my feet alone. It just seems so foreign to me, having family.
Especially when they are so distant in their beliefs.
back to the mental bin for me eh.. lol... fly the coup mainidh, fly... before they clip your wings. And terminally ground you to their oblivion.
