Tonight the pain in my heart is real. The pain is tearing me apart, and I wish, I wish I could put a total stop to this madness.
I came on social media a few minutes ago, just to catch up, laugh, read and then go to bed, but while scrolling through my instagram newsfeed, a video started playing and immediately I scrolled pasts it because the scene was hideous and barbaric.
I didn’t know when tears started flowing from my eyes as though I was directly involved, BUT OF COURSE I was directly involved, INDIRECTLY. Just because I am human.
How do people get to the point of heartlessness where they can carry a knife and butcher a fellow human just because the person is a rival.
I ask, how do people even become RIVALS.
We should all be partners, brothers and sisters.
My heart is heavy, my heart is bleeding, if only tears could put a stop to such gruesome acts.
I am trying so hard to understand the rationale behind these killings we hear of everyday and I find no real reason but that the seed of HATE has been implanted in humans and WE in our stupidity FEED it daily, instead of killing and maiming it till GOES AWAY and KILLS US NO MORE.
TODAY, I am reminded that there are still people who ARE not like some others who can never raise an arm to harm a fly, let alone a fellow human.
Where there is NO LOVE, hate REIGNS as KING.
We have limited the WORD LOVE to just what we feel for that boy or that girl that makes it difficult for us to think straight or even eat food, LOVE is far from that.
LOVE is a conscious CHOICE and DECISION we make to prefer and look OUT FOR THE GOOD OF ANOTHER.
LOVE IS A DECISION WE MAKE AND HAVE TO REMAKE EVERY DAY OF OUR WAKING LIVES.
LOVE IS IN EVERY ONE OF US AND WE HAVE TO REACH IN AND REACH OUT.
TOnight, I am in pains, deep paina and hurting for the many lives lost during communal clashes, wars, hate battles and via injustices at various levels.
We have become so far away from LOVE and understanding the bond we are meant to share, so we find it so easy raising hands and weapons to injure and even kill one another.
Please, bring back our LOVE.
Bring back our HUMANITY.
Bring back our BOND.
I am human and I LOVE.
