The World Is A Beautiful Place

Updated on July 7, 2015

The world is a beautiful place to be born into

as long as you don’t mind being short

on happiness and abundantly surrounded by negativity.

It’s a wonderful environment if you don’t mind

pollution on the beach, people spending more time

with their phones and laptops than with each other, people

judging you left and right for all of the choices you make.

The real problem here is that people were born to be loved

and for things to be used. Instead people are being used

and things are being loved. So I guess the world is a

beautiful place if you don’t mind some of those things.


It wouldn’t be so bad if there weren’t such

pessimistic and cynical people all around us. Some room

for improvement one might say? Don’t get me started on that.

People that come from loving families are going around the world,

dying for our country. Yet all we care about is what our favorite celebrity

has for lunch on one particular day. There’s that homeless man that
I see every day, crying for hope and begging for money. Does it count for

something if all you do is smile at that poor stranger that looks up at you with

depressed eyes and a broken smile?


Clean water? Taken for granted. Food aplenty? Try again.

None of us know what it is like to live a life in someone else’s skin.

The same skin that one might throw into a tanning bed, attempting perfection.

Perfection, such an awful word. But why do we all strive for such a petty little

concept that means nothing more than a word on social media?

Where’s the compassion? Where’s the love? Where’s the feelings

that bring us back to the days when we had our fruit chopped up into little

non-choke able pieces for us by our Mommies and Daddies and were tucked into

the tiniest twin sized beds? Do you miss that feeling? I sure do. But do you miss

it enough to have that feeling bring you back to the way you treated others during

that season of your life? You push someone down the slide, you say sorry, maybe

you hug each other and you move on, but most importantly everyone lets go

of the grudges being held against one another. What happens now?


Well one man shoots another, but is there really a reason? Why can’t

they shoot each other with water guns, those squirt guns that we use

on the Fourth of July, you all know the kind. Dogs and cats are pushed

under the rug, as if their feelings and intuition don’t matter. But they have feelings

too! Imagine that, what a strange concept that someone besides you might have

emotions that mean something. Something more than what meets the eye.



Now don’t get me wrong, the world will one day be fixed. Or whatever fixed

actually means. I long for the day that people smile back at one another.

The day that they look up from their screens long enough to remember

to hug their grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. There will come a day

when the beautiful people of the world will see the common ground in one another’s smiles.

There’s no such thing as a bad person, but bad decisions paired with a person’s

name. One day none of us will be judged.


When will this day be?

Well, why don’t you tell me?
