I’m not okay.
I’m not okay with the way of the world.
I’m not okay that we don’t agree.
I’m not okay that everything costs money.
I’m not okay that so many have to do without.
It seems these days everyone’s out for number one.
Nobody seems to want to take responsibility…
Or make a sacrifice, even for their friends.
It’s terrible that there are people lonely in the midst of company…
And that millions are starving in the midst of abundance!
It’s not okay that I have to say “I’m okay” so you can be comfortable…
It’s not okay that we have to do it that way…
Because that’s the way it has always been done.
It’s not okay that many need to fight to exercise their basic human rights…
It’s not okay that those who resist the status quo and promote change
Are mocked, victimised and labelled as rebels.
It’s not okay that we can’t get around politics…
Whether in the family, in the state or even in our small Whatsapp groups.
It’s not okay, but it’s the truth that:
You can’t always get what you want;
Things won’t always go in your favour;
You can’t control the thoughts and actions of others;
You’ll find peace when you learn to be OKAY regardless.
