The Sky Falls in Fear

untitled (2)

Back when we were one

Dear Mama

Don’t get me wrong, I love my fellow brothers and sisters but human is all they are, in our history as the human race, none have lived a perfect life, care free, without worries or mistakes, we’re not perfect, yet we continue trying to chase this “perfect”. Now I’m not ouchea trying to let a meer mortal tell me how to be perfect, what’s right or what cool is. Conforming or trying to be someone else’s idea of perfect would be me robbing myself as a human being a fair chance of hitting perfect, my perfect, one that’s not an imitation or a shadow of someone else’s attempt. My journey to being content.

This is when you as a human are no longer afraid to fail, it’s when you’re no longer moved by how another human sees you but how you see yourself. You become the leader of your own world unfazed by judgemental eyes, fazed by highs yet to be created by you.

I’m not one who has received much advice, well maybe I’ve had career or relationship advice from a friend now and a few other times, but that’s just it, A lot of the “Good Advice” I’ve gotten is advice that hasn’t been directly given to me but perhaps advice that I’ve got via reading, watching a movie or listening to a song. It only occurd to me recently that I do actually have advise that has been given to me, advise I can consider the best advice I’ve ever gotten. Though I’ve been a wild child, I do come from a fairly religious family. The best advice I’ve ever gotten was from my dear mother, She told me never to under estimate my prayers as a child of God. As humans we tend to look for leadership and guidance from “more important humans”, we might not see it, but we may tend to see prayers from our religious leaders as more efficient. Ma told me that my prayers are just as good, just as powerful as any Pastor or Bishop praying for me. My mama taught me faith. To have it in myself… to believe.

There have been many theories behind The Pied Piper, but I haven’t seen or heard any that link him to that illuminati “secret” society we’ve all ironically heard of. Think about it, why is a musical instrument used to “mislead” the children of Hamelin? Is this story perhaps telling us about the truth of the choke-hold the media today has over the youth’s individualism?… the oh so perfectly architected and hidden mind control tactics music has over us children of the son?

Without dwelling too much on the story, The Pied Piper is a character from a children’s book who offers his services to the rat infested city of Hamelin, well, he is hired to get rid of the rodents by luring them away with his magic pipe, upon doing so, the city fails to pay him, he then decides to retaliate by leading the children of Hamelin away as he had the rats.

Have we failed to pay our dues? Were we doomed from the start? I don’t know, what I do know is we’re losing sense of ourselves, our humanity, we’re dancing along to the tune The Man is playing as we drift away we follow… loneliness scares us away from pulling away from the crowd, happily lost together, we march.

As kids turn into adults stories turn into legends, trees turn to bibles, life turns to death… God is our safest bet.

“Now and then it seems like a life is just too much, but you’ve got the love I need to see me through, When food is gone, you are my daily meal, When friends are gone, I know my saviors love is real, you know it’s real”

Most famously covered by Florence + The Machine, Candi Staton’s late eighties early nineties gospel-house hit carries what the early 70s late 60s members of the counterculture movement would consider the lionized words of a Jesus freak.

This number exposes the disposability of the things you and I hold so dearly, this being food, friends and everything under the sun, it speaks about the precious things in life you and I can go on without, versus the love we need to see us through this tremulous journey, the road less travelled, self discovery.
