The word used to describe the generation of today,
Righteousness seems so scarce that the few who act right are labelled as ‘the good ones.
‘ What the previous generations used to call taboo has evolved to be ‘cool.’
It has so much power, it’s pulling us all in , drowning and choking us to death.
We’re left with no choice but to CONFORM.
It’s the fear of being isolated,
It is the fear of being labelled,
It’s the fear of losing the ability to be acceptable,
It’s the ‘fit in’ mentality that defines us.
God if we could just feel the joy that comes with being the odd one out.
The peace that comes with righteousness,
If we could just silence the ‘belong’ voices that haunt us,
If we could just understand that we’re pilgrims,
If only we could understand that our destination is far beyond this cruel world,
Only then shall will be able to stand out, shine and soar high up in the sky,
We will be able to carry ourselves around with confidence, we won’t have to pretend anymore and finally be at peace,
Only then shall we experience true happiness.
But how? The question still poses.
