the tears of a bleeding Africa.
I used to think that there is absolutely nothing wrong about indifference. That people who are indifferent are lame and just scared. What I didn’t know is that even in the same colour, people could see the difference, even in the same colour, someone sees another as an obstacle, someone somewhere sees another as the reason why they are not successful, that the one you consider a friend friend, a brother gives a fuck about the progress you are making, that they are bitter that you’re a step ahead and that they just hide in pretence and sarcasm ready to pounce on you.
A part of me wishes I could have a way to tell this in a magical way but the sad truth is, however how much I try to sugarcoat this our continent is in tears. I wish I could even be telling about the beauties that Africa has to offer but beauty in the face is no beauty without a good heart.
Life is not easy and definitely will not be easy just because those you consider abstacles are out of your way. The reasons for the bitterness might be justified maybe because of loss of hope, failure, lack of employment…………………. But certainly the way of handling everything now takes us ages back. It shows how small minded we are. Today we’re bitter because they are from the neighbouring country and are here taking the place meant for us. What we don’t see is that you’ll always be bitter because people that are a step ahead will always be around you.
It really is painful seeing the kind of future we have for the next generation. That it’s OK to turn against a brother, that violence is a solution to unemployment, that colour is just color and makes us nothing more than people sharing the same colour, that it’s OK to take a life to get their way.
If you feel that you are consistently bitter about every shit that bothers you, chances are you lack anything important going on in your life and your real problem isn’t your neighbor, a friend or family that you feel are taking what is rightfully yours, but yourself. These are just problems of not having anything more important to worry about.
