A Poets Rant - Poem by Melvina Germain

My Rant (If you're already in a bad mood, don't read this)

Do Humans want peace or do they have that certain element within that says I have to go out today and hurt someone, or just be as mean as I can be without touching them but affecting them inwardly until they fall. What is it that makes some people so cruel that they jab at a persons heart until the heart finally fails or until the person can't take it anymore and jabs back even more cruel hurting the wrong people.

Is it possible we were once on another planet and due to our behavior we were banished to the planet called earth which was not necessarily good for us human beings. We were given an average of perhaps 70 years to live but prior our suffering would commence with many different diseases, often maybe become bent, memory disappears. Ha perhaps that's what we received for being that rebellious person on our own true planet and today when we look to the stars, somewhere out there is our true home but will we ever be accepted back since still to this day we have not found peace. To this day long time friendships break for foolish reasons, to this day family members turn on each other and to this day due to some religious beliefs some find it necessary to kill.

Do you think we're getting closer to peace or are we falling backward leaning more toward hating for whatever reason. What will we find next to hate, what reasons will we conjour up or look for as an excuse to leave our families. Will we learn to stand up for those we say we love or did we ever have love in our hearts to begin with, were we born with that bad seed that never learned how to love. Do we know if we fall into that basket or do we even care to find out. How arrogant has some humans come to think they can blame all others and not themselves. How absolutely evil can one become thinkinng they can lie profusely about another human being no matter what the outcome is for that person in order to make themselves look bloody good.

What is it with the human race, do we enjoy watching others hurt, watching them try to pick up the pieces that never seem to fall into place, are we laughing and delighted when we see our so called friends fall, do we enjoy jabbing them in the back. Have some become so money hungry that we use people up in numbers and everyone has a dollar bill placed on them. We often blame the people at the top for all of our problems when the people at the bottom have no chance due to themselves with their egotistical and wild behaviour knowing full well they want to be standing high on that pedestal enjoying the power.

Ha ha, we wonder why some people check out and O do we feel sorry for them or is that the time many find themselves sitting on the judgemental wagon hollering how stupid and how cowardly the person who checked out is. Is that same person who hurls out baggage for the weak to carry also calling down the poor homeless Veteran who has no way of making back unless he or she has a hand up, that's right as the commercial says not a hand out. What have many of us become, who the hell are we.

So many work thier 8-10 or 12 hour shifts day in and day out, never collecting a penny from unemployment and later in years when their health begins to fail and they need a little time off that poor individual is backed against a wall and sometimes to the point where they say forget it and force themselves to work. Some make it through and grow old, my gosh, don't get old, it's hell, dang it it's hell. You might just get peanalized for doing all that was right. If you own property you better own lots of it because in some provinces that might go against you. Of course we might have a new problem that has risen in Canada, and that might be this...Who is in charge now that don't give a dang about you but are willing to take care of their own. It's a new day people and if you sit still you will be mashed.

Ok that's my rant for the day, if you can make any sense of it...GOOD! if not well you know what's coming take what you can use and leave the rest, yep that's all folks...Melvina.....

    It often seems that there is more wrong with the world than right. A good rant can dissipate some frustration (Report) Reply
