...and then we have the species called Mankind. Supposedly created after the trees and the animals, and set to rule the earth. There are many kinds of Man. Firstly, they are divided into male, female, and hermaphrodites. Hermaphrodites are those who are born with both sexes. Well, Mankind, collectively, is divided into many variants. You have the Faithful Man, who only has eyes for one partner. Then, another Faithful Man, who has eyes only for two or more partners. Then, you have the Unfaithful Man who has eyes for anything that moves. You also have the Faithful Man who has a partner of the same sex. Or two or more partners. You also have Man who has sex with animals. And the Man who has sex with children. And the man who likes to kill. And the man who likes to molest. And the man who likes to abuse. And the man who likes to watch any of the above. Then there is the man who is unfaithful, by having one partner and seeing another partner without the first partner knowing about it. I think this has something to do with making the sex life more exciting. And the other unfaithful man, who just likes to be sneaking around. Now, before you slice me up, remember that the word Man refers to either a male, female or a hermaphrodite. Then we have disabled man. Either physically or mentally disabled. Then we have the good man. And the bad man. And as the old adage goes: the ugly. On Earth, there are many different kinds of Man. Put what you got into the picture... Big, eh?
Then we have religion. Yeah, gotta put that in the mixing bowl. There are more religions than one can write about, because each Man fits religion into their life as befits them. I mean, no one really knows what goes on in another person's mind. You have the communicating Man, and the non-communicative man. You have the open-minded and the narrow. You have the judgemental and the carefree. You have tolerant people, and those who exercise intolerance. You have free people and chained people. You have people in jail and people who put people in jail. You have law-makers and law-breakers and jaw-breakers and jaw-makers... You have fighters and peacekeepers. You have this custom and that custom. You have the addicted and those who believe they are not addicted to anything.
Put that, also, into the picture. Messy, eh?
There is the patient man and the impatient man. There are those who enslave their own children, or buy children to enslave them. There are countries with borders and rules and laws. Many countries. Many different rules and laws. There are towns, cities, hotels, homes and apartment buildings, each with their own set of rules. There are derelict buildings and homeless people. There are vast open spaces and there are cities crammed full of people and their animals.
There is fine print and their is BIG PRINT. Some can read, and others can't. There are many different languages and - truly - not many people can understand one another, even if they speak the same language, sometimes. And it is rumoured that if you speak your truth in your language over and over, someone, yeah, just maybe, someone - will listen...
Now put that in the dish, also... Oi, it's so dizzy...
Now these people, in whichever state they prefer or are forced to live in, have children most of the time.
Just add it in... it's just too awesome for me...
...and they get older and sometimes have children themselves...
...and they, too, indulge in the act of life sometimes...
There are people who dump their children, murder their children, break them, sell them, use them for sex objects. There are people who do the aforementioned things to other people's children, with or without the parent/s consent.
There are alcoholics, drug addicts, caffiene addicts, and addicts of all descriptions out there. Including sex addicts. There are rapists, murderers, robbers, killers and paedophiles. There are serial killers...
You have those who are understanding, and those who have no compassion... You have those who were brought up with values against the grain and others who are brought up correctly... You have wise parents, and some children have no parents.. or just one... or too many...
There is divorce for couples or crowds... that sometimes brings strangers, step-parents, step-in-laws, step-grandparents, and step this and that...
Then you have the partner who is disgruntled and either murders the spouse/s and/or the child/ren... You have people who are armed and people who don't believe in arming themselves... You have peaceful people and angry people... There are people who want to work, and people who don't want to work. You have work for some people and no work for others. Some people get enough money to survive, other's can't get through a month on their money. Oh, yes... add many different currencies to the mix... and bartering... and the control-freaks and the freedom fighters and then some... And you have loan sharks and banks, and credit and interest and ...
Put that in the mixing desk... Sounds fun doesn't it?
Of course, there are good people. They are the givers, the donators, the philanthropists, the care-givers, the shelterers, those who are generous... those people try to understand the victims, through being victims themselves at some stage, or looking for victims, or just trying to make a living doing something good...
You have healthy people and sick people and people who don't know they are sick and people who don't know they are healthy... You have people who are considerate and people who couldn't give a damn, and people who don't know that people are being considerate and people who think that other people don't give a damn, but, no one knows anything for sure, that's the truth...
You get people who say what they mean and give their word... You get people who don't say what they mean to say and they give their word... and you get contracts and serious documents and the literate and the illiterate... You get liars and honest people... You get people who love to set fire to things, people who love to draw blood, people who love to inflict pain, people who love to be made to feel pain, people who love to hurt, people who love to be hurt, people who want what they can't have and people who believe that they can have what isn't theirs to begin with, and people who eat other people... You have people who tell secrets and people who keep secrets and people who kill people with secrets to tell and people who love chasing storms and people who love taking photographs and people who enjoying culinary delights...
You get people who love to type and people who love the sound of their own voices and people who love to draw and paint and create and people who love to destroy... People who are frightened and people who frighten other people, animals and/or children... People who play practical jokes and people who test people and people who fail tests and people who believe they are successful and people who believe they are failures and people who want to bring one down and people who want to raise one up... People who shine and people who carry a veil of darkness around them, people who are loud and people who are quiet, people who love noise and people who love peace, and people who believe in freedom and people who know that freedom is a myth, and people who sell freedom and people who give freedom, and people who prefer the afternoon, morning, evening, night, twilight or whatever... You get all sorts of people, more than any selection offered in any kind of packaging available...
Now add that into the mixing bowl...
Scrumptious?
You've then got the naive and the trusting... The innocent and those who are dreamers... The artists and the fools...
Add that...
Then you've got the leaders and the followers... You've got loners and mobbers... You've got snipers and habitual criminals... You've got conmen and more conmen... You've got the smokers and the drinkers and the tokers and the thinkers... I'm sure that's a famous line from somewhere... You've got the spiritual and the meditators, you've got the cults and the churches, you've got the open doors and the closed doors, you've got those who will learn new things and ditch their primitive inheritance, you've got those who won't learn new things and will cling to the archaic... you've got traditional, national, international, cosmic, neighbourhood, rural, civilised, military, lax, strict, funny, fat, short, tall, long, some with one leg, some with two, some with three, some with four, you've got standard issue and standards and normal and abnormal, you've got the perfectionists and the doctors and the scientists and the nurses and the lovers and the lawyers and the laymen and this lament of mine...
Well, I'm done trying this evening to capture the essence of Mankind...
but, I mustn't forget their sustenance...
Some eat vegetation only
Some eat flesh of animals only
Some eat both the above
Some eat their own flesh
Some eat other peoples flesh
Some do these things willingly
Some do these things by force
and some just breathe...
You've got the copycats and the followers, you've got the blind and those who are out to make a profit and those who see a good thing and those who see a bad thing... you've got mystery and imagination, you've got coverups and state-secrets, you've got spies and plainclothed policemen... you've got detectives and receptionists... you've got writers and spinners of yarn... you've got drapers and suitmakers and drycleaners and hitmen and armies and suits and serious suits... you've got weapons, you've got concealed weapons, you've got those with abilities to use their bodies as weapons... you've got mothers and fathers.... you've got good and bad... you've got multiple personalities and you've got psychics, you've got mediums and schizophrenics, you've got autistic and you've got genius, you've got angels and demons....
Recently you've got the vegetarian Panda bear killing and eating meat... you've got the male spider eating its mate instead of the other way around... you've got the polar bear running out of ground... you've got species of animals, insects, fish and bird that have only recently been discovered... you've got evolution and you've got revolution... you've got cycles and parallels... you've got you and I've got me...
Now, we've got a partial list of some of the kinds of people out there as well as barely touching on the other creations ... and what has that got to do with anything? Well, my truth is that I don't like to mix with the baddies, and would rather spend my time with the good people of the earth... and yet, God sent His only BEGOTTEN Son to die for the sins of the baddies so that they could be saved from eternal damnation... and, let's face it: who is really good nowadays? Even I have my demons and horrors and days that I wander around and can't wait to sleep and awaken to a new day where I won't have to live through Hell... So, what is this all about? Guess it's just to let you know that if we don't let the baddies know that there is a way to stop being bad, there's going to be a lot more baddies than goodies and that's not the kind of world we want to live in, is it? So, yeah, spread the word about the Saviour if you can... It's not easy, that's for sure: at every turn one is always thwarted from a goal, and my goal is just to reach at least one soul and turn them away from an eternal hell... of course, it would be great if I could reach more people, but, hey, remember: I am a paranoid schizophrenic and prefer my own company... and I'm terrified of people anyways, just in case they turn out to be baddies... Anyways, I am fine and getting along well, so, I'm one less person to worry about... LOL!!!
I've got some one telling me that I am God... and that I created ALL THIS... The more I tried to tell them that I didn't create a single thing and that there is no way I could and even if I did create anything, I would have to use something tangible that was created already by THE CREATOR, the more they looked at me as if I were crazy....
Now put that into this package... What am I supposed to think? I just sit back for a moment and listen to the thunder and know that somehow, if I were to listen closely and concentrate, I would hear the Creator Himself, and as it would be, the lightning crashed overhead and I had to hear, and I do believe: I WON'T GET RID OF YOU...
Why on earth should I get rid of my Creator? Why on earth would I want to overthrow the One who gave me everything I have? No matter how I bitch and moan when I do my daily chores, no matter how tired I get, no matter how much my inner child wants to play, I respect my Creator and do the best I can with what I have to make sure that my Creator is not displeased with me and I'm as good as I can be without becoming a nuisance or a hinderance or a burden... I mean, the story has been told upteen times about how the created Lucifer wanted to be God and how he was tossed down and thrown out of Heaven... and that was that... Now why would I want to repeat that history? I do know that I have to govern myself, within myself, and I'm not shy to follow the guidance of the laws that govern my country so that I can live in peace, and follow the laws of my Saviour who gave me the words of wisdom to Love My God above all and do unto others what be done unto me... It's simple for me... Ok, so it's hard sometimes, yes, to do the chores and to keep myself and my house in order, but I do what I can with what I've been given... and even if some one were to stop me from worshipping my Creator, I would still do it within my soul... Why do they try to change another's religious beliefs? Every one believes that they are the right one, but what does it matter? As long as each and every soul has a Saviour to turn to when they are in trouble or in Hell of some kind... This is the religion that saved my soul and it works for me... You may have another, and your friend may have yet another... As long as we do unto others what would be done unto ourselves, and we keep our Creator's commandments close in our hearts... People have fought over words for long enough now, don't you think? Just be nice, that's what I think, and wish each other a lovely day, and forgive those who have hurt us and leave the revenge in the hands of those who are stronger than us...
I'm trying to catch my breath here with a puff of a cigarette
and trying to see through my half a century old eyes
and trying to open the eyes of those who are so innocent
so that they will not fall into the traps...
yes, there are trappers and capturers and fishermen and scouts and policemen and officers of many organisations looking for any of the above that I've mentioned... and they have many different locations to find their prize/s... and all have myriad different agendas...
I can't think of all the different types of people and places out there all at once
All I know is that with all this information
I don't easily trust anyone...
I'm really scared
For the innocent and the unborn more than myself
For they still have to learn these things
And in doing so
They will be shaped forever
and they will resculpt themselves as they wander and wonder...
I'm praying for the souls to think before they act and speak
To spare a thought for their neighbour's child or children
who should be able to grow up and live the ideal life - uncluttered with despair or mourning, debt or sorrow, pain or discomfort, confusion or sadness, depression or harm, molestation or horror... anger or disappointment... and no disillusionment...
There are untold things that shouldn't happen to children or the unborn foetuses, but I can't bear to think along those lines anymore
I instead think that our children and our childrens children should be comfortable, warm, cosy, educated, safe, loved, entertained, pampered, taught, mannered, well-read, literate (ah, those two go together)... (It's getting late and I must rest awhile... and of course, our children etc. should be well-fed... and know how to survive)
and that goes for our animals, too
and our insects...
and our birds...
and our fish...
and our mammals...
and our bacteria and other microscopic beings and things...
if only we could live and let live ...
it saddens me to feel distant pain
it saddens me to feel my own disintergration...
it saddens me to become slower and older...
...and then I brighten up, remembering that Jesus is coming SOON SOON... whether it's only for me or for you or for us all or just for some of us...
It won't be long now...
He has protected this middle-aged old lady now through my life on earth, maybe and probably brushing shoulders with more than half of the above-mentioned kinds of people... and I have survived, thanks only to Our Creator - GOD - (or by which ever name you call the Creator of Everything) - for his love of the world that He gave up His Only BEGOTTEN (that's the important word to focus on if you get into an argument, and I pray you don't) Son, Jesus, to be crucified in our place so that we don't go through Hell, or, go to Hell... and little old me here, He made me and He made me happy to know that there is always going to be HOPE, for all people in all walks of life, to have an Eternal Life with Him, in Heaven... and so...
My eyes are closing in protest against the bright white light of the computer screen...
I'm ready to rest
for a while
until...
the next time I have to witness for my Saviour, Jesus, to the much loved world, even though it's drowning in sin at this time... Turn away from any kind of evil, no matter how big or small it is - GOD is MUCH BIGGER than anything or any problem you may be having... He's truly helped me through everything... and He's here RIGHT NOW with me and you and everyone and everything... He doesn't want you to suffer and he doesn't want you to cause any suffering... He wants you to embrace the fullness of a healthy lifestyle with Him at the Helm of your life, to guide you and to keep you from going astray and falling off the edge of the Universe...
Be kind to yourself, and Love Yourself, as Jesus said...
Be kind to the others around you
and look softly and kindly upon the World that God Loves so much that it's breaking His Heart to see it in such turmoil... You can make a difference just with a smile, even if you are only smiling at your own reflection, just to say to yourself: There, you are COOL and CALM and COLLECTED, and together we can make it through this day ... and then share your smile... You'll see the world in a different way... But, don't forget, there are TONNES and TONNES of people out there who DESPERATELY NEED TO BE SAVED, coz, as you can tell from my writings, there are many different people who are NOT saved and who aren't thinking STRAIGHT... and that's because they were harmed... somewhere, somehow, something was said or done to them that wasn't COOL, and maybe it happened only once, or it happened more, or it was on a daily basis; but, somehow they were harmed and cannot come to terms with being victimized in some way... Please help that person... A smile or a wave, or a hug, or just SAVE... You have NO IDEA of how powerful the Love of God and Jesus are for this world... Many times I have had to interrupt my Love for God and Jesus with an impassioned cry for their STRENGTH against some misguided victimized person trying to crucify me for what happened to them... and, here I am, still... God and Jesus have not EVER forsaken me and have got me out of many hairy situations in my life... Many! And now I am so scared I just stay at home and be a good girl... And so I should... I'm a middle-aged lady and a housewife and an artist and a lyricist and a writer and a poet and a singer and I've got the internet to communicate with the World, and I have been made to understand FORGIVENESS as I've grown up and asked and been given, and given to those who could not ask me because I ran away in fear...
Again, I'm growing weary here in this chair and wish to catch up with chores and some rest... This writing is not just done in one day or one sitting... it is thought about and pondered and has taken many hours... And it's been months growing on this page on the pc, waiting for the right moment to be sent to all my friends and posted onto the internet at my sites... I'm so glad that I'm a prisoner of Jesus Christ, coz he's entrusted me with keys and a little bit of freedom and His Peaceful Communications that keep me going on from day to blessed day, and gives me the strength and the Holy Spirit to keep on fighting against the baddies and trying to get them to turn away from horror and face eternal life in Joyful Communion with his fellow mankind through Jesus Christ, my Saviour
Warmest wishes
