Slave Trap

“I hate people but I love people; I hate that I love people. I love to drive out the hate; guess I love that I hate people.” -KB

 

¬† ¬† ¬†When I think about America she makes me feel trapped. Like some voodoo lady that keeps casting spells. When I think about her some more I start to feel bad because somehow I believe it’s not all her fault.

 

¬† ¬† ¬†America’s been a slave since the day she was born. Her creators made her that way. They made her work for them, feed them, clothe them, and give them shelter. When she could no longer be of service to them they set her loose; made her a slave owner too. Inevitably she made children who wanted to be slave owners as well. Families were being created, but within them were selfish individuals. Within them lived a superiority complex. Somehow they believed this “better than you” spirit would manifest abundance and wealth, but instead it only birthed jealousy. America’s families were being nourished by envious desires. The love became lost, the happiness left unfulfilled and empty, their homes destroyed and torn apart.

As the generations multiplied of course the population grew, and the spirits of envy eventually made spirits of hatred too. The hatred; well, negative behavior was conceived out of that, and it didn’t cause anything but sensible destruction. The descendants of America became grossly impaired. Families became separated¬†by the thin line between love and hate. Cultures evolved to cults. They couldn’t see past their own perceptions, they couldn’t hear outside of their own voices, and they didn’t dare touch, taste, or smell anything unfamiliar.

¬† ¬† ¬† I told¬†you that little anecdote to tell you this: America is going through the same thing she went through hundreds of years ago. The United States of America is more divided than when Moses parted the Red Sea. Why? Because we’re still slaves. We’re still slaves to the system, slaves to the industries, slaves to the gridiron, slaves to technology, and most importantly slaves to our feelings.

¬† ¬† ¬†The way we feel controls way too much of what we say and do. We can’t think for ourselves because we can’t get out of¬†our feelings. This is affecting the ways in which we communicate, which in turn affects our relationships. And we wonder why a lot of us feel miserable and lonely. We must learn to be more intelligent emotionally. We must learn to accept what is and let go of what was. We must learn to love each other more and hate each other less.¬†

¬† ¬† ¬†I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be enslaved by the American Dream. I want to feel free enough to create my own. One that will benefit myself, my community, and the generations to come.¬†
