The Bus of Life
Feel free to love yourself, they say.
Feel free to explore who you are...
as long as you follow your dreams...
You, like I, will only have to love this world.
After all, this harsh world beckons us.
It calls upon us both like the PA system on a bus...
...cold and harsh, a caucophony on our bleeding ears...
It welcomes us uncaringly. It greets us just as the savage capitalist greets its interns. It does not care to know our name.
Meanwhile, buses will continue to move. Capitalists will continue to make profit. And life will continue to move on, with or without you.
So what will your complaints accomplish? Your cries of despair are all in vain. What to do?
No matter who you are, regardless of whether you're a passenger on a bus or a capitalist, life will simply tell you once:
"Feel free to get on the bus."
No matter your answer, the bus will go on towards it course of life.
No matter your answer, capitalists will continue to make money at the expense of life.
No matter your answer, you'll always be free to love yourself.
You'll be free to explore the world both in and out of the bus. Let the world offer its own journeys to you.
