Fair As The Sun©

Fair As The Sun©

I look up at the sun

Rising up everyday

In spite of long nights

Cold winters, dark and grey.

Our lovely sun

Spreading light and warmth

To everyone East, West,

South, and North

Without discrimination.

I looked up at the sun

And all I saw was brightness

Clear, and true. I had a revelation.

I looked  down and around

Right and left..far and wide…

Shocked at what I saw:

Poverty, wars, killing…madness.

Injustice & inequality filled the land

Few had a lot, filled with gluttony

Greed and pride. whips in their hand

Chains of all kinds.

I saw some white, some yellow

Some brown and some black.

I closed my eyes and wished

That I was color blind.

I looked back up at the sun

And was filled with inspiration.

I had a dream, I knew that

A lot has to be done.

Unity, togetherness, and determination.

That soon fairness, Equality,

And Justice will rule the nation.

A Breath of Air©

A Breath of Air

Is all what we need.

The snuffling, muffling,

Stale is baffling indeed!

 

A fresh breath of air

Is freedom to the soul.

It is essential to be free,

It matters to us all.

 

Equality Is a birth right to all

Citizens of the nation.

We all breath air

without discrimination.

Equality is fair…

Without it, we fall.

Humanity©

Humanity is

What makes

A man Human

Not beast.

A man deformed

Is a man without

Humanity.

 

Humanity is a collective

Concept that unites

People not divide.

A common ground

For all our children

To grow safe and

For all societies

To flourish & thrive.

 

Humanity is the dream

The present, the past.

It is the drive

For compassion to bring

Us together, reach out

For each other to live

Continue living and survive.

Revenant is He who Awakens to the Truth.©

The movie, The Revenant takes a raw aim at the human nature and dissect it to the bone. I haven’t seen anything quite like it. First I was shocked by the brutality and the rawness of it all; yet I kept watching. Then it hit me and jolted my soul…the realization of the human nature with all its facades vs. Nature itself. Awakening!

All was tangible and real right in front of my eyes. The virginity of the snow, the harsh yet serene winter, the remoteness of the place, and the shabby print of the white man’s presence on it …bringing greed, weapons, destruction, diversion and hate.

It cuts deeper into the human nature layer by layer. You see it raw, crude, and as natural as it was when man was first created. Love between husband and wife, father and son, family, tribe, and friendship. Loyalty and comradeship vs. betrayal that cuts deeper and hurt longer than the marring of a giant grizzly. Faith when it purifies the soul and heal the wounds as portrayed by the native man (Hikuc)’s dealing with the loss of his family:

Hikuc: My heart bleeds. But revenge is in the creator’s hands”;

On the other hand, when egoism and arrogance hijack Faith and turns it into extremism  as portrayed by the character Fitzgerald.

Then racism, white-man-supremacy with its power, discrimination, greed, stealing lands and conquering people. The movie is an experience, a revelation that transforms the viewer and force him to look face to face deep within.

My intention is not to write about the movie, but to share a synopsis about the feelings that it may stir in you, it’s so powerful, it compels us to reflect and think. Revenant, may will be, all of us who are awakened to the truth.
