Unjustified potential is the most widespread disease creeping the world. The fear of failure enervates the youth and makes them tread the obvious path. Hence they fail to realize their natural gifts and belie their potential. The society obfuscates young minds into believing that they are born to serve the society instead of offering something new to it. So to avoid the social chagrin that comes as a result of failure, you fail to try at all. Hence our current system is churning out sycophants who claw their way up a channel of professional servants.
While some parts of the world lavish, our prudence prevents us from going after the bigger fish, hence we are too busy struggling and competing for necessities. Disillusioned by the deceptive munificence of the ones ruling the world, we are like the big fish in small ponds. Happy in small victories because we are afraid to swim in higher tides.
But with better connectivity, people are not as deprived of information as they were before. A storm brews, the silent indignation wont be muted for too long. Some will be enlightened and will take it upon themselves to empower people around them.
Nature gives all of us a fair chance to blossom into the best that we can be, till the time we realize that anarchical despots have limited our potential boundary.
Our bondage is not about chains anymore, methods of bondage have evolved with time too, its our minds that our being controlled, we are subliminally enslaved, and we don’t even have a clue.
How can we think right when our very social system has been debauched to its very core, While the ruling powers are busy competing for the big fish, we fight among ourselves to decide who will be keeping score.
They took centuries to dent our realities and rob us of our values and culture, Now they soar the sky with the loot, still monitoring our downfall from the top, like ravenous vultures.
Our insecurities reflect the miserable state of our minds, we are perpetually afraid because of the system they gave us, It wont happen overnight, it would take centuries of thought refinement to save us.
Although the journey is long and the destination unseen, we can play our little parts by realizing the ineffable power of our dreams.
You might not be able to sing the right songs or dance the right dance, but by believing in yourself you surely give yourself a fair chance.
As it is better to try and fail than to not try at all, At one end lies success, the other lessons from the fall.
