Change is just another Idea

Change is as funny and corny as the old saying goes you can never find true love with the wrong person, but isn’t as complex as it shouldn’t be. We insist it on a stranger standing next to us in a bus station. Demanding it on the people governing office and power, a halo we bestowed right over their heads, and when the time comes of their corruption we cry our ass out and file for their impeachment and proclaim another shithead for the same position. But we do not reach it deep within ourselves—not within our souls.
Aren’t we tired of the same destruction—racism, weapons, wars, pollution—which destroys the young, the innocent, the kind disposition?
If we want something, shan’t we become the torch of inspiration that motivates a whole damn nation to interfere against the destruction we ourselves once started, and finally put an end to hypocrisy and malevolent only we invented. The truth is change is never in action if we put it upon the grace of other people. But what’s even truer is that none of our half have come to realize the truth yet, and none of us at all have decided to put it upon themselves—otherwise there would have been serenity and prosperity in every corner of the street. In the end change is only an idea, and it will remain as is without our will and action. We will never find it with the person standing next to us nor the person we elect in the office. Stop complaining and start doing something.

    1. Hi there, Renard. Thanks for reading! And right, change is inevitable, and it must come first from us individually before we demand others to better circumstances.
