What’s On My Mind? Ha, Facebook!

Okay, I’ll share it since you asked. 

I am sitting down here and sipping my Earl Grey Tea, having woken up early to complete a draft I’m working on.

And as I looked through the window, behold a beautiful panorama stretched out before me. Wow! The world is beautiful indeed. So beautiful despite the challenges and the murky darkness that surrounds it.

As I looked deeper into the horizon, everything looked so perfect, so peaceful from a distance. Everything appeared amazing from far away.

But as I took yet another sip from my white tea cup, I pondered on the negativity all over the globe. I pondered on the many challenges in this world. I pondered on myself, and the rest people out there. I pondered on the atrocities of our leaderships and the pains they unleash on the defenseless masses. Oh, how the common man bears the brute of our incompetent and corrupt leaders. Oh, how the value of human life has reduced so drastically in our society. And I hear echoes of Run, Run, there is fire on the mountain.

This wild fire is spreading fast. This fire must be quenched. But who will be the Fire-Man?

And I concluded thus: that the dirty details of life seem almost invisible and even non-existent from afar.

I am still wondering how everything seems perfect whereas the world is engulfed in deep bitterness, anguish, excruciating pain, violence, and evil.

From here, I could barely hear the noise of this amplified animosity, this expanding hatred that is festering among humans.

And that is only because I am right here, inside, which appears cozy. I am right here, inside, which exudes warmth.

But sadly the outside is filled with potholes and fierce demons. Angry lions parading and looking for naive and easy preys and who to devour. Humans looking for who to bludgeon to death… Who to stab next.

The world is beautiful indeed but perforated with varying seeds of discords, evil manipulations, and deep rooted animosity.

The world is sick and in acute pain.

And this wicked world is in dire need of an urgent surgery to bring her back to her default state, perhaps.

And just now, I sipped the last drop of my Earl Grey Tea, from my white tea cup, a gift from Nkechi, my dear cousin.


Peace and Love!

  1. This morning I was having similar thoughts (except I was sipping coffee). And I didn’t have a window to look through (I was at the kitchen table.) My search for solace (and an answer to your question about who the “Fire Man” will be), came from John 9:4. We must quickly work at what we can while the day lasts, because the night is coming soon.
    Good post! Good to know I’m not alone in thinking these thoughts!

    1. Such a remarkable, *witty* and great feedback. 🙂 I deeply appreciate that you shared these insights esp with the scriptures. You made me reaching for my bible and that is quite insightful. Thank you so much. Hope your weekend is fun. 🙂


    1. Thank you, Kamal. So true that most of us can relate to this line of thoughts. Like you said, it’s the world we live in now and we can only hope that there will be an end to this seemingly endless chaos that has engulfed humanity. 🙂


  2. For me, the simplest thing I can do is to do one kind thing today — not to my family and friends although them too — but to a stranger. I can’t change the world. It’s too big. But I can change my world, change my actions, and hope those actions ripple out, making other small changes, make a new norm. It’s easy to be mean, to say something bitchy and it makes people laugh which reinforces the meanness until it escalates from words to action which grow bigger. Nice is seen as boring but we need to flip that. Make nice and kind what we pay attention to, what we reinforce. Not just the big heroic things but the small things too. I can’t change the world but I can do this. (lol, I said a lot. I think I’ll copy my own reply and plop it into a blog post, cracking up.)

    1. Haha. So very okay to use your comment as a blog post. 🙂 And I agree with you that reaching out to someone everyday in kindness goes a long way. It doesn’t have to be anything financial but just a smile, being polite, listening to someone are acts that maximizes happiness. And if everyone contributes to a significant change on a daily basis, it will have a resounding rippling effect in our today’s world. Thank you so much for your remarkable feedback. Have a great week ahead. 🙂
