Short Story: I too was a child
I too was a child!
But I am so sure that we see thing differently, and there is nothing wrong with that, life give me these answers that proves it to me .Sometimes I cry when I look at the different ways we have to take and it shames to know that the first priority of even this thing called modern man is not even the total eradication of disease and hunger. There should be a War declared on those things, and guess what? The finance is there for it.
Regardless of our respective ages, through some kind of way, through some kind of mean, an idea will enter our being in an attempt to create some kind of direction. We will hear it and question it and answer it, all within ourselves, it will bother us and we will dream of it, get angry at it, sometime share in ways that are not encouraging, simply try and stop it from reoccurring. But it won’t stop that easy. Some of us will try to do things that we see others do, we will get into circles with others who we know literally hates the progressive nature and human wisdom that is carries. Things like if my parents tried their best to show me a way even with the limited access to knowledgeable information, then it should at least be that I should double their efforts by utilizing that which is available to me. But I have come to realize that there are so many forces that are at work to win the rights to all human existence, it’s quite difficult for them to stay and the straight and narrow which our own parents and grand parents have worked so hard to do. The distractions were no match for the discipline of those times, the forces of evil it seems were planning strategies and methods of approach, where they used the darkness and now they are using people that can withstand the light. They are powerful.
I too was a child, sitting at an age of no responsibility, indecision was never a problem I quickly formulated a course of action, that lead me too many places, and I learned that there was a meaning to all the madness I created. I moved away from the simplicity, that it is, to the mire and the mud creating a quagmire of difficulties for my life. I had this belief planted in me but I felt that it was limited; not knowing that it was actually limitless and I grew to find out that we were truly from Adams generation or a generation that was similar. I stayed with me, never ever giving me up, and it was through these actions and reactions I found Love. Not love for a woman or a man, but love for the reason Love truly exists. I love you means nothing to anyone, if they don’t really know what love is.
My biggest problem came when I was able to see the deepest inside myself, and was able to grasp a general idea of why we as youngsters never seem to like, or even wanted to hear from adult figures, unless we were commanded to. We could not wait to break loose and run free. The adults always it seems wanted to tell you what and how to do what you do, they always want to make it look like they knew best. But I have come to realize something on both sides , on the path of the kids , that’s the rebellion and on the part of the adults , this is me even now . The Experience it the experience, one experiences, when one experience the experience. We as youngsters know nothing when we are young, so that need for each one teaches one and that’s the way it should be is no place in our vocabulary.
But it will; work its way to maturity as time goes by and all youngsters will feel the need to help someone during their lives. They are not adults and won’t easily understand.
I did pretty well growing up but that beast was ever so present trying to convince me but it was the sweetest victory for me as an adult I have battled through to be on this journey from which no one can convince me otherwise.
I am saying to the youths that I too was a child, and the questions came and I stood up quite well and like Adam m the temptation was rather strong and overpowering, but never give in that’s your fight and the rewards are well worth it inside. You came as an individual and you will leave as such even in war. Take this beautiful opportunity not from me, but from the beauty you feel inside, everything that you need is here for you but like it says in the Bible in the book of:
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 .There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: 2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
Know you this this day , that God is great.
I too was a child!
