Who am I?

27 July 2014, 14:43
Hello, my name is ...............  well, it doesn't really matter.  I am NOT black.  I am NOT white.  I am not any other colour. I am NOT English, Afrikaans, Zulu or Xhosa or any other language you would like to attribute to me.  I am NOT from the DA, ANC, EFF or any other political party.  I am certainly NOT a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or from any other spiritual entity.  Neither am I from this or that culture.
What I am is:  ME
ME:  This "being" ...  existing right now, together with a trillion other "beings", similar, yet different, living on this small spec of dust in the vast expanse of the Universe ... ALIVE!  For this one moment in time - yesterday I was a small child, today I am the mother of two, tomorrow I will be dead.  That is time for you, here now, gone tomorrow, in the blink of an eye!  
What I am is:  ME
Me...who hate what is happening all over the world, the famine, greed and religious wars, starving of innocent children and humans abusing other humans and abusing animals, Me...who hate lawlessness, the ethnic cleansing and genocide perpetrated by delusional human beings who suffer from insecurities and who commit crimes due to their blood lust cravings and who live their lives being bitter and hateful.  Me ... who hate these cowards, who lie, steel, rape, murder, abuse and do the most vile things imaginable to appease their despicable lust for power and greed.Me ... who hate to hear how an innocent child is killed horrifically by car thieves or how a family can be so delusional as to want to murder their own 10 year old child because a filthy old Afghan mullah have raped her.........These parasites with NO morals and values, who walk around like weapons of mass destruction killing not only our beautiful world but those who live upon it - Oh, how I hate these nations, gangs, individuals who commit terror attacks on the innocent.  Those, that destroy our forests and drive some species to extinction...and we call ourselves the most intelligent species on earth.  I tend to doubt that, history tells me that we have not learned from our mistakes and I can only hope (for earths sake) that we will drive ourselves to become extinct.  We are well on our way.  However, if I look at the rate some humans breed, I think earth might not be so lucky.  It actually makes me think that we are more related to mice and rabbits than to our cousins the apes.  But truthfully, intelligence is not a word I would attribute to the human species.  I am almost ashamed to be one of them.  So yes, hate is an emotion that occupies my mind far than what is healthy for one person.  I watch a big plane land on some far away land, bodies being carried after the other, with body parts, those of adults and children and I am filled with sorrow and pain but somehow the hate for those who shot these innocents down and then behave like they just won a big prize, overtake the all other emotions....
What I am is:  ME
Me ... who does not want to hate.  What I WANT is to life to its fullest, short as it might be.  I WANT to love and be loved.  I WANT to wake up every morning, feeling happy and content.  I WANT to feel the sun on my face and the wind in my hair.  I WANT to live without fear.  I WANT to travel and see the world and experience life where we are all the same, on a planet without borders, where children can run the streets and be save, where they can become free-thinkers in their own right and choose their own path through this wonderful world and where NO other person's influence can hold them hostage. I WANT a world where they can learn honesty, integrity and other values and be respected for them.  I WANT to hear laughter and see happiness and love everywhere.  I WANT to look into their beautiful eyes and NOT see trouble, hurt, horror or any other pain in them.  I WANT a place where BRILLIANT MINDS will take us into outer space and beyond.  THIS IS WHAT I WANT!
What I am is:  ME
Just a "being" on this planet which orbits the sun...a sun, which, had it the ability to "think" would have thought me completely insignificant!But here, I am important, I am intelligent and deserve respect. I am everything and I am significant.....

                     I AM ... YOU!
