ChangeMature

...

The time for change is over...

There is nothing new to discover.

...Nothing new to explore.

...Nothing new to report.

...Nothing new to be...

It's sad when you realize that all the people who did anything that really mattered, are to be found only in history books, movies, television and graveyards.

It's sad to know that you will never have the opportunity to live up to that kind of legacy, be that kind of immortalized, remembered through the ages....

It's sad to think that all of that, is just for someone else, and not you...

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

There is nothing new under the sun, nothing new to discover that hasn't been for sale, nothing new to be, or do, or admire...

All of our true heroes and heroines, they're all dead and buried now...

So sad...

We will never be president, never become an explorer who discovers a new land, never lead a revolution, never make a real mark in society or history, never escape the confines of this consumerist, lolligagging prison that someone else has built for us so many ages ago, before we were ever conceived...

But they knew we would be here, sooner or later, and they laid the foundation for our limits, saying "you are free...you are free to do whatever you wish, so long as it is within these limited confines that we have prefabricated for you..."

..."So run, frolick and play...play in your cages, like the silly monkeys that you are..."

Change...

Change is for somebody else...

Change is for someone who has the time, the energy, the willpower, the stamina, the fortitude, the ambition, the imagination, and all of these combined, and so much more...
This is what someone capable of change must possess, and nothing less...

The problem isn't that nobody has the above mentioned qualities, the problem is, that everyone who DOES possess them is: beaten down by the modern day, hierarchical, rat-race, consumerist, pay now/play later, busy body, expressionist, popularity contest, spirit crushing, bullshit bandwagon, that says: "Join us, be like us, or be left out in the cold to die..."

To the point when somebody does come along, with some kind of "change" in their mind, heart, body and soul, somebody bold, fresh, new and alive, that they seem so alien to all the rest of the sheep, so alien that the mainstreamers feel obliged to stamp that person out, and everything about them and their ways...

So funny though, that everytime they do so, even just turn a cold shoulder to them, that they heap on just a little more dirt onto their own graves, the graves in wich they voluntarily inter themselves (and eachother), buried alive, from their own salvation from all of this...

It's been said that "The time for change is OVER...", but, perhaps the time for change has never been better, than NOW...

How will YOU be remembered...?
  

The End
