Our Time

We live in
an individualistic era
of the contemporary world

We idolise self
iPhone
ME Bank
selfie
me
me
me
more me
super dose of
ME

Ironically
we are in identity crisis

We neither know
who we are
or why we are
who we are

We constantly
think about
to be
or not to be

Everything is about
mind and mood
Everybody needs
a psychologist

We are shut out
of the world
that we so desperately
want to
and need to
belong to

The continue blurring
of moral codes
and exaggerating need
for individual rights

We are destined to
self destructions
The question is
When?

  1. Wow what a piece, Cassa. Amazingly written. I love the “me” part in the beginning, you hit the nail on the head there. Good combo of truth and poetic brilliance here, well done 🤍🤍

  2. That’s very true. Though I always hold onto the hope, and practical application of consciousness raising in my own personal and professional life, we do have a lot of work to do to mitigate the “end”.

    1. Most traditional values keep us grounded and connected to family, community and society as a whole. I am hopeful that the new generations will see these values and foster them, because they experienced the dysfunction of their previous generations.

  3. Such an applicable piece for today’s world. I wonder, though, do you think humanity has always been self-obsessed? I realize survival was a more critical element then than now as our quality of life continues to get better. Still, those who were more fortunate certainly cared nothing for others, only themselves. Your thoughts?

    1. I feel that we are by nature are self centred more so when we were younger. We learned to care for others besides ourselves.
      Right now, I do feel the social media and AI play a huge part in filtering info we see and read, therefore, self glorifying is seen to be a norm rather than just part of human behaviour.
