Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1100: Taking Things Seriously

Don’t have long before I need to head out so I’ve got to think about what I’m going to put down before I head on out and do the things that I need to do.

Something important approaches all of Australia and it needs to be taken seriously, but I don’t want to cover that. There is so much optimism, pessimism and many other things surrounding it and I have no hope that any form of success or reprieve will be had, yet I still hope for the best. I just expect the worst.

Anyway, I sit here and I do very little to help lead to a better outcome for all and so I need to wear that on my shoulders. However, this is not something that I want to cover. I want to think about other things. I want to think about the possibility of a better world. I want to think about the possibility of people actually helping each other out and not looking to obtain as much wealth as possible.

I want to see less discrimination and more opportunity, and I want to see a world that truly connects everyone in a way that benefits everyone, and that is something that I believe is possible. I don’t think we need to remain in the mud and keep throwing shit at each other, but apparently that is the best way forward.

Sometimes I want to believe more in the inherent potential to be better, but it seems a lot of people don’t. Of course I could be thinking about that incorrectly, but there’s so much hate and anger out there. It doesn’t make sense to me that we accept casual racism and claim that it’s all just a joke. It doesn’t make sense to me that people don’t seem to want respect to be a two-way street. A lot of things don’t make sense to me.

We’re too willing to shit on the environment. As we sit in the mud and keep trampling those underneath everything around us is disappearing, but we don’t care as we’re not under the surface and so we can breath in that really healthy, polluted air.

I just don’t understand. I don’t understand why we keep going through all of this and I don’t understand as to why we allow ourselves to be mostly talk. We can do so much better for each other and the environment and too many of us refuse to do so. We refuse to accept and work to realising our potential and it’s devastating. What are we doing? What are we doing in this particular moment in time that allows us to believe that our actions (or in some cases, lack thereof) hold no consequences, and when will we start working harder toward actions that have beneficial consequences?

We can do so much better and we don’t, and we talk about oncoming things and yet all we’re doing is talking. We may as well be giving up.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 08:05:57

I wrote this yesterday and I’m not sure why I waited until now to share.
I think it had a lot to do with being really tired. Maybe. Yesterday afternoon ended up really long.

This is more along the lines of stuff I want to spend time writing here, but I often don’t and I’m not sure why.

Written at home.
