Open letter to the world

This is an open letter to the rest of the world, i have sat here and watched this world fade and wilt away under its own failings and we as a people have no one to blame but ourselves for the situation we are in, I am but one man what difference can I make, I can't make a difference, i can't speak for the rest of the world, each person needs to stand up and let their own voices be heard, but i can have my say and let my own voice be heard.
Does one decide to follow blindly behind another or are some men born with the instinct to lead those that are to blind to lead themselves, without fail those to weak to have their own opinion will always be manipulated by those willing to preach the word that has corrupted their hearts, campaigns and vendetta's that fuel their inner prejudice that masks their own fears, whether its based on someone's skin colour, race or simply because they worship a different religion.
Ignorance, not realizing that we are all the same, we are all human, we eat, love, sleep, work.
All of us breathe the same air, yet we sit here in the comforts of our homes watching our TVs, listening to our Ipods as millions die every year through conflict, persecution, poverty and disease.
What we don't seem to understand is that our life can end in the blink of an eye, we are just a drop of water in the sea of life.
Every second, minute and hour of everyday should be treasured not wasted on conflict, we have many threats that we face daily as a people, from starvation disease and mother nature, we have homelessness and poverty on a global scale, people living on the streets wondering were their next meal is coming from or if they will be safe from violence and abuse if they made the wrong choice to they their head down to rest for the night, but billions are being spent fighting each other, when will this world realize that we should be working together for a better world instead of killing each other off on an industrial scale, as a people we are good at mass production but is death really something that should be mass produced.
The politicians sit in their ivory towers making judgement calls that affect all of us, but in a whole they want whats best for themselves and their political party, going back and forth arguing what is best for us, but never asking us what we want, just telling us what they think, no one power should have the say for the rest of us, a decision should be made for the people by the people, not a figure head blinded by infighting to know what is best for the society that they say they stand for protecting.
As a people though no one will stand up we all complain from the comforts of our homes about all the political unrest and are all divided on the current issues affecting there country, but come the next commercial on TV than the problem is solved something else has distracted us and the issue they were arguing has vanished, this out of sight out of mind mentality, if it doesn't affect me than why should i bother, I am guilty of this many times over.
This never ending cycle of violence is being passed onto the next generation who has to guide this world, old vendettas recycled for a new generation, this is something that won't change in my generation, you can't click off years of distrust, but you have to ask yourself this do you want your children, grand children or even your great grand children left with a world that is scarred and battered and filled with conflict, poverty and disease, knowing full well that right here right now you could have made a deference but choose to ignore the problem.
We as a people are extremely self centered if it doesn't revolve around out lives than why should we care, well nearly everyone that reads this open letter will ignore it and not care what has been said, but that's all i can do is show them the door its up to you now if you decide to walk through it.
I can not physically change the world that is impossible, i can not change the minds of over 6 billion people and tell them how to act and live their lives.
The question you are asking yourselves is what gives me the right to say this, what makes him think he can speak for the world and all the people, well nothing, I have no faith and i have no political affiliation, I am an average Joe nothing makes me special, but even i can see that we are screwing this beautiful planet of ours.

Well worn track

we walk aimlessly along the same well worn track of life, many times we will slip into the undercurrent of fog that lines this road, lost and unsure where we are and how to get back on track, most brave the fog and find that track again, others linger and wilt away without any hope of return, sometimes a hand of a savior will reach out and be the guiding light back, but at times it might seem like that hand will never come and the other travelers on this track are deaf to your calls, that's when you have to stand without fear in your heart and march forth blind but with purposes and determination for it takes a strong willed mind to stand back up when fallen but it takes a braver mind to say i need help, not all the ears of the deaf will respond to your call and they flutter away in a blur like a faded memory, but one will be there so vivid and bright to reach down with outstretched hand and say "I hear you clearly my friend".


Control

Do we have control over our destiny or does our destiny have control over us, how does one determine if our destiny is the right path to follow, myself i feel i am destined to be a writer but who knows what 1 mile down the road of life might hold, my destiny might lay away from the path in life that i have envision for myself.
Do we walk through life thinking i am in control of my own fate, when in the blink of an eye our world can be turned upside down, we try to control as much as possible but that's not always the case no matter how much we plan ahead and try to control every aspect that some outside force will blow in like a tornado and wipe that slate clean leaving everything we attempted to control in tatters for us to start over and try again, in a sense we can control our fate to a certain extent but in the end fate controls us whether we like it or not.

Afterlife

Death is but the beginning, life after that is a mystery, where we go or what is installed for us whether it be to heaven, hell, reincarnation or just nothingness, it is blind to me, it is blind to all, what I do know in my heart is that the life we live here and now is but the beginning and it doesn’t matter what religion you are I am sure when you pass it will be all that you have ever dreamed of.

Modified Life

We all search in life for who we are grasping at the social stereotypes of what we are meant to be and then conforming to those clich├ęs as if they are the only option, most people will never be who they want to be for fear of being labelled different from this herd mentality of the supposed normality of society, but what society in general doesn't understand that they shouldn't judge people based on what they look like just because we make the choice to modify our bodies doesn't mean we deserve to be treated differently we all have the same blood running through our bodies, we are all human beings and we should be treated that way, we are all put on this pedestal for the rest of the world to view us, to judge us as if we need their approval, god forbid if you break away and become a unique individual than those haters out there will try to bring you down to their level of childish taunts because we are different, in life be who you want to be, it's more liberating living life free and enjoying it than getting to the end of your time and have remorse for not be yourself for fear of what others would think of you.

BENEATH THE SKIN

If you cut into me do I not bleed red the same as you, this means we are the same beneath the skin, it should not matter what colour my skin is and what is inked upon it or carved into it, we are all human we are all flesh and blood, yet we are divided in the fact that you think I am crazy for doing the things I do to change my body into a living breathing canvas and in turn I think you’re crazy for being plain with no colour the difference is I do not enforce my opinion onto you because you choose to live this way, in the end those who are not tattooed will always insert their unwanted opinion on those of us who choose to walk a different path to the one that is most traveled.
