I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. And again. And again. I hate this world – with a passion. Words cannot even express how much I hate this world we live in. It’s sad, depressing, backwards, selfish, twisted and very, very sick.
The human race has become an abhorrent disgrace and distanced so far away from everything we should be about. Love continues to diminish, self-centredness is running rampant, we destroy the earth rather than nurture it and we hurt the animals we’re supposed to protect. I don’t even want to say that we’ve become feral, because even some of the animal species don’t behave the way we do.
Cruelty, greed, ignorance and disrespect have become major characteristics in our world, which is apparent in many of the horrible, downright depressing news stories we read. Parents killing children for the strangest reasons; poverty being allowed to continue while the filthy rich continue to get richer; young boys calling girls “bitches” and “sluts” in schools; a racist, xenophobic mad man in the running for President.
Black people are being pointlessly murdered, and for some reason, we shouldn’t be in an uproar about it, but people wanna get mad at a sportsman making a point and not standing for his national anthem. When did a life cease to mean anything? Why does a living person’s actions stir up more emotions in you than someone losing their life? Why can the United States of America not see that it’s country is inherently racist and riddled with issues? Why aren’t more of them coming together to do something about it?
Then there are the young individuals running riot with knives and guns, terrorising the UK and each other, wreaking unnecessary violence on our streets. Taking a life has become second nature to them, as the respect for the living has gone out the window for them and you have to wonder why. But worse than that, you find yourself asking, who will be next?
Modern slavery takes a new form in what we call work, with companies and managers thinking that they own you because they pay you. Now it seems that we have been born to live to work, rather than working to live, having to push our lives aside for the every need of our employer. Unable to nurture relationships or really give to people, we have become so consumed with paperwork and legalities, forgetting about the living, breathing beings walking around. Is it any wonder that so many families are falling apart and mental illness is on the rise?
The human race has officially lost it, and what’s worst, we’ve lost what it means to actually be human. If we took more time to regain that, show more love and be a whole lot more selfless, the world would be in a better state. Of course, a world riddled with sin will never be perfect, but it can be better and that has to start within every one of us.
However, right now, I can truly say that I hate this world and I am desperate for it to come to an end, because I don’t want to be hearing and seeing these horrible things anymore.
