While we all want stability in our lives, there are times when all we want is some peace and calm. But in this modern day and age, it is all the opposite. We are all ticking time bombs, waiting to blast off with an explosion of anger and frustration. The unstable lives that we live in are just the tip of the iceberg. The deeper we go, the more volatile it becomes.
While we all say that we are calm and collected (even I do sometimes), inside is a very big bad storm that brews, waiting to unleash its energy and maybe some evil laughs. Look around, people are venting out like blown up pressure cookers, expecting something calm and quiet in return. But no, fate has other plans for them. They just get blown up more till the time their brains do not explode and just go berserk. Completely oblivious to what happens around when it’s their brain ordering them to do mundane tasks like consuming their own lives for greatness. Thus leading to the greatness of an unknown future.
We are staying in a volatile environment, where anything could happen at any moment we cannot do anything. From what I have seen, it gets a lot worse. It’s always guns, germs or steel playing their role in decimation. I have seen war, have seen the brutality and the horrors of it all. From seeing the people getting their limbs dismembered right to digging holes for their final rest place. The only thing that stayed was the mutual respect that we all had for one another. The uncertainty of when we are going to each other next. But other than war, people are still fighting, some for their lives, some for getting accepted because of their choices. Some are just trying to survive. Look in the news every day there is some shitstorm brewing.
But why should I care or give a damn? I am that dickhead who has it all, the comfort and safety of a home, the luxury of having whatever food I want to, and accessibility to the clothes I want to wear. All I do all day is just post some stupid hashtags on social media and show that I care. But the reality is, we all ignore it all. It does not matter if the person in distress is our next-door neighbour until unless it happens to us or someone close to us, we do not give a shit about what happens outside, as simple as that.
This very voluntary ignorance is what eventually leads us to the meltdown. No matter what we do, there is always someone bearing the fruits of their labour. Now I do not say that everyone is an ignorant fool, but most are. I commend those who are seeing past this wall of ignorance and trying to make a change. We should support them if we could, but we don’t, because our ego and our ignorant brain say so.
We have become so immune, that it does not matter anymore who lives or dies. What matters is that we, the self-centred fools survive in the gluttony and pride of achieving nothing. While we complain of the instability and volatile nature, it is us only who have created this hellscape. And we cannot reverse what we have done now.
Was it worth it? That is all I ask.
