When people see the slightest of weakness on you, they target that and use it against you. On the other hand, they also target you when they see that you are strong, thinking that you can probably just deal with it. When you’ve spent your time and dignity building an image of yourself that shows you as being strong as a rock but in reality… on the inside you’re nothing but feebleness and emotions. People think it’s actually okay to pick on someone and tear apart what little self esteem they have just from what they portray them as. They think that they can handle it. They think that they can do all this to them just because they’re “strong.” They pick and choose every last bit and piece until there is nothing left. You begin to fall into this bottomless pit where it seems as though there is no way out of it. You just keep falling, and falling,and falling. There’s only one way out but you feel as though there’s no chance of getting there. So you just keep going deeper and deeper until you’ve reached your limit and say you had enough. You end it.
Then, they go off saying how “they shouldn’t have died,” “they were a beautiful,” “they would have been a use to this world.” Why don’t people say these things when the person is alive. It would’ve changed their minds about their decision. However, others still go along acting as if they didn’t have anything to contribute to what had happened. As if they were completely innocent. As if what that one person did was completely their fault and no one had anything to do with it. Which makes me really think, How absent minded can a person really get? How can you be so blind to what you were saying and doing to a person? How can you not feel the guilt of participating in what you have done to this innocent person? But you know what they say… Ignorance is Bliss.
Some poetry for you guys:
She walks down the hall on her own,
Hearing quiet whispers
She pretends she doesn’t hear them
Even though her ears burn
She replays all the things she heard
Like a song in her head
She plays a song,
Her wrist the violin
Every stroke she makes with her bow
The more numb she gets
Scars her for eternity
But a reminder, she survived
This song can be interpreted in many different ways. As so, there is still one line from this song that stands out:
“Ain’t it fun, living in the real world?”
It is in the chorus so therefore is repeated quite a few times. Haley Williams, the singer, is saying this in a sarcastic tone because the world is not all fun and games anymore. It’s the truth about reality.
Some people have it all made, since the start. They never had to struggle. Everything was taken care of for them. Not an ounce of stress on their shoulders and doing what they please. This may seem like its the “ideal” way of living but it doesn’t teach any lessons. It doesn’t allow room for mistakes. It just doesn’t mean anything at all. They spend their life cooped up in a false reality. They are living a life of selfishness and doesn’t give anyone a second thought. Those type pf people need to know that there are 8 billion other people in this world too and that those people aren’t just there to make their life easier. When they finally experience the real world, they see that the world doesn’t revolve around them anymore. When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.
Essentially, everyone has to grow up and make their own decisions.We each have to be our own individual and not entirely depend on others. You can try and avoid life, but soon it catches up to you. To be independent, you must take risks, make mistakes and learn. No one will be with you every step of the way and no one will be there to fight your battles for you all the time. This is a reminder that THIS is reality and it’s time to wake up from your dream and take responsibility for your actions, your problems, and YOUR life. This is the real world and the world will not wait for you.
Shout out to the man that makes my heart melt just by smiling.
