We live in a world where freedom has become a danger to civilization, a
world where democracy gives the right to those who shouldn’t have it, a
world where justice is the rhetoric of a lawyer.
We are in an era where the salvation is offered to the rich without many
setbacks, an era where the church has become a place of asylum, a refuge
for those who have betrayed the law of the world and those betrayed by
We live in a world where democracy has become a weapon against the weak, a
meaningless word that uses the power to asleep the people.
This democracy is the people’s right, it gives them a platform to raise
the words of their misery, but it also gives a voice to those in power,
because the power is the people as well.
But these people have been dancing for too long the sound of this political
music that is unfortunately a sound not pleasing to the ear anymore. This music
doesn’t calm the hunger of the people who no longer dances at its rhythm.
We live in a world where a burning identity question arises; because
according to the man what the creator has generously offered him was not
enough, he raised his name (Adam) so high that it has lost its original
meaning, the meaning of the first born called to take care of God's creation,
instead of destroying it and turning into hell on earth. He turned this
Eden into a battlefield that even God sitting on his throne no longer
recognizes it. He served in the fall of mankind, applying principles
established by himself, "Life is a battle," he says; to justify the acts
of his selfish heart. He became a wolf for his brother.
We are in a world where the poor works to fill the attic of the rich while
his own children dehydrate and die of hunger. A world where it is the
child who goes to war to defend their homeland auctioned by adults. A
homeland sold for a piece of bread that will never see the table of the patriot.
In this battle of life, the poorest is unfortunately the most vulnerable,
his head is sold for the benefit of those who are in power (...)
Where is the world going? Surely to its tragic end that man has caused.
The man is certainly going back to his original state, his predatory
instinct which remains in a perpetual search of welfare, a welfare as deep
as the depth of his pocket, He is in a perpetual search of a selfish
In his race to happiness, He will erase in his path towns and villages,
digging common graves and filling them with the blood of those who dare
We sometimes lift our voices, speaking of genocide, terrorism, rebellions,
without giving equal numbers of life that selfishness of man has made, but
look also at the door of your neighbor, his misery and pain that we
ignore; are we better than these terrorists?
Our future is dark because we have placed it on the front line, Man is
afraid to die for his rights, he then found the best human shield that is
nobody else than the fruit of his (her) womb, the blood of his veins,
his son ... His heart is so full of selfishness and envy that he can’t see
the harm he is causing to life.
What will become of us tomorrow without the child of today?
A child left to live like a shadow, envying the hands of the baker, soiled
by the bread’s dough he will never have a chance to eat, sniffing the
smoke of meat roasted in the neighbor’s stove, piece of meat he will never
Poor child that man has transformed into a slave in the land of his own
We live in a world where the essential has lost its sense. A world where
the need to dominate dominates the human heart, is this a misunderstanding
of the order of the creator, this order that said:” man shall dominates
all the creatures, women included, or is it simply the falling into hell
that is reflecting on the behavior of human?
We live in a world where humans should look around themselves and see all
the misery they caused.
It is time for him (the man) to get to the frontline to confront and take
responsibility for his selfish actions, because it is still possible for
this man to change his tunes and correct his mistakes of the past ...
Otherwise what is he becoming?
This question of identity remains, for neither man nor God's nature seems
to have an answer to it...
