Have you Got a Heart?
There are many who walk this pathway on our Earth journey, who finds themselves lost. Unable to see a clear path of where there journey is taking them.. As they scramble over the rocks in life, dragging themselves out of the pits of despair, as they get sucked deeper into the mires of debt, drugs, and depression, as their world around them seems to collapse which pulls them ever deeper into the dark forces of negativity.
I see it every day on the streets, as I look into the blank faces of people who never smile, I see it in the devil may care attitude of some of our youth as they play havoc in a world where adults now seem to fear children for what they are becoming, with their ‘you can’t touch me attitude I’m a minor and can get away with murder’, which some do, and some have..
I look around at what the world in general and see what it has become, for the majority the rat race of who can accumulate the most in this throw away society of food, goods, and that couldn’t care less attitude.
And I despair for the future of our children’s children, as our communities are full of strangers, who view each other with suspicion, who lock their doors behind them, and who dare not look another in the eye, in case they be offended and shout abuse or rob you at knife point.
Cities where we walk by those who stand begging pn the streets, turning the other way, as we wonder if they are really genuine or do they leave there begging bowl and return to a plush home counting their takings for the day..
Where have our Hearts gone?
When did the Care go from our lives?
When did we become strangers to one another?
I sit and think, and I remember when I was small.. when I could name every child in my school, and know where each of them lived within my village, I would know every parent of that child, and we didn’t lock our doors, I could walk for miles on my own aged 10 in the countryside and I would never be fearful.. My parents taught me to be wary of strangers yes, but child abductions were rare, and I remember people seemed to laugh more, socialise more, and the only TV I was allowed to watch was children’s programmes, and I would have to be in bed by 7:30pm. The most violent of these programmes being ‘Dr Who’..
Hospitals had their matrons and were kept spick and span, and you went into hospital you got better. Now you go in and are fearful you catch something else. Care has gone and is now replaced by Bums on Beds = X amount , administrators are accountants and businessmen, as they run Hospitals it like a production line.
Patients lose their patience as they wait 5 hours or more to be treated in A& E. And whereby you need to book a week in advance of any illness, because by the time you can get in to see a GP, you already got better.
So….. Where Did the Care GO?
When did we lose are Hearts?
Because for those that CARE… who try their best to keep smiling, and keep caring, and giving, at times it gets harder. I see it even now within my own employment.
I DO CARE…. and I am certain more folks out there care too.. But sometimes we feel lonely at heart as I look around at the world in which we live today.
So when I see the disasters around our globe, my heart bleeds another tear, but I also see how through the turmoil and despair how strangers come together. And communities rebuild… Maybe our Earth Mother as she sheds her many tears as she floods our shores, maybe she is crying for the Lost Hearts, and Maybe she know best how to mend a broken world.
Just speaking what’s in my heart.
