back from the brink in the ring


I was born madandcrazy, never pausing for thought, until I nearly lost you. Now I don't know if I'm crazy anymore or mad enough and I don't know who I'm without you. I'm lost, my soul on ice, figuring the new me out.

@Bantuntu, Abstract? I think it's crystal clear what's happening here. It has alot to do with 'Eve' in the profile pic, not?

I am repeating this comment from the post below because. Well, you read it and see why I think you must not miss it.

They will get you eventually. You will sell out. Why do you think they are not scared when they see you free? Why do you think they are not panicked? Because they know it is just a matter of time until they get you. You will sell out. You will become one of them. The changes will come in a small series, insidious little steps. You already traded in your phone; next thing you will be seriously unable to leave the house for work because you can’t find a pair of socks that goes with your fucking tie.
You will sell out. You will think you are making compromises, but you are actually making sacrifices. You are selling out. Cheaply. You will trade in ideals, your chosen purpose for life for what you think is security, or convenience, or just money. You will think that think that inside, beneath the tie, you are the same person, but no, you are not. That person is gone. Has been taken away. You don’t know where or by whom, but one day you look back at this post and at your past and it will all look so different. It will not look like truth, it will look like some stuff some other guy wrote. It will look foreign, and distant.

Because your eyes will have been replaced with TV screens. Your mind will have been replaced by a rote-sheet of approved ideas, a programme of preconceptions and prejudices, unanimous biases, consensus ambitions. Minds are outlawed, man.

You will see the books and plan to buy them, or at least plan to read them, but you won’t have the time. You will have the time for cappuccinos and meeting the boys to watch Man U at Steak Out, though.

So what are you going to do then? You may like to think you will fight back, but they know. They are not scared.

You will proceed to do what they programmed every one to do. Necktie, car, masters, wife, kids, house...

You have just inspired the new tumbavu.blogspot post, by the way. Please visit.

baz said...

Obsession? "I wonder if they'll listen to a nigga when he gone?"

Are you still down?

Darlkom said...

Iwaya, this is, as usual, b.e.a.utiful. Does the name of the girl in the picture start with the letter 'J' by any chance?
