Ewa’s Thought in Words

WHEN COURAGE FAILS…

When courage fails me…
When faith seems so absent…
When life seems to be  against all my efforts…
When the truth does not look like the answer anymore…
When evil tends to be an acceptable trend…
When those who should be the custodians of justice are themselves the injustices that prevail in the land.

I languish in pain..
Only wishing it was physical pain, where sorry could suffice
where empathy of a loved one could make a deep difference.

My soul griefs…
My heart bleeds…
in fretful array of consistent tiers of disappointment wrapped in pure disaffection.
My thoughts are stirred and I begin to wonder how exactly we got here!
How and when we are ever going to find our way back home. . .
Home to that time when love was true…
Home to the time when truth was real,
When people prided in noble deeds…
When honour was earned by those who worked for it.
When there was joy in being human…
Home where peace was like a sweet melody of songs.
Home where hope led each day in honesty…
Home where the society was cared for by it’s occupants. . .
When nature agreed with man..

Home where this craze of “I wanna blow” was not trending. .
Where cultisim and ritualistic ventures were far from crave and patronage.
Home where women felt safe and the story of rape, emotional abuse and sexual violations was not a theme. . .
Home where kidnapping and abduction were rarely heard of…
Home where killing of a fellow human person was perceived as taboo and punishable…
Home where the community would banish anyone who brought shame through bad name and image…

Home where people were warm and watched out for the safety of all…
Home where anger did not rule the day nor envy the master of trade..
Home where evil people were careful to be noticed because of the consequences they attracted…
Home where people rejoiced genuinely for others’ success and growth and sincerely prayed for others’ progress and breakthroughs. . .

Like migrants, we migrated from all these goodness and got lost in the desperate acts of individualism, where all that ever matters is satisfying selfish wants and desires.
