MAN UP, STOP BEING SUCH A COWARD !

There are some things I absolutely love about the “old school” when men could be men & when they settled their differences like it. Things were simple – where the terms Mano e mano, “fair-go” and “toe-to-toe” actually meant something. For all the shade we throw at the old-timers, they had a lot more to be proud of than many of the weaklings today.

Nowadays, the change in men’s demeanour & approach is noticeable and I just can’t explain why. Why has there been such a drastic change? We have a thousand and one genders (more than a person can humanly keep track of) with guys who look & act like high school girls – I guess it would be more fitting for us to refer to them as women. Like honestly, how can today’s women even be attracted to these gossiping, invertebrate, sorry excuses for men who are more weak & cowardly than Shaggy from Scooby-Doo.

I look at all these young kids who idolise the fools they see on the television who have created this false impression of what their lives actually entail – Hip-hop artists who glorify the gang life without truly knowing what it is about. Why would they look up to people whose ideals are based on materialism, over-indulgence and putting up a front, as if it hides their insecurities? This social media age has made it all the more simple to create a false image, spitting poison whilst hiding behind a keyboard as if that exhibits any bravery.

I miss the days when men could settle their difference in the way they were meant to. It wasn’t too complicated – Two combatants raised their fists, slugged it out in a vicious but controlled way until one man was left standing. Amidst all the brutality & anger, there was understanding and respect. Even then, the battle was over as soon as one man couldn’t rise to his feet without the need for constant retaliation or calling “back-up”/”back-stop” to settle the grudge. We left it all on the field of battle without the fear , hanging over our heads, of being shot at the very next day . Like the late Pops from Friday said, “You win some, you lose some but you live… you live to fight another day”. We resorted to classic one-on-one brawls & it was beautiful.

No need for bad-mouthing your enemy, no need for starting dumb ass rumours or formulating a Garrison of accomplices to mercilessly beat a single person. Honestly, there’s just no honour in that. I have no respect for people who gang up on a person to inflict pain upon them. To put the cherry on the top, they still gloat about partaking in such a cowardly act as if that proves anything at all about their manliness or superiority.  If anything, it just shows how weak & co-dependent they really are. How about lining up one-by-one? It’s a whole different story now, isn’t it? Just remember, a real man fights his own battles and will never rely on others to take a stand. Men have forgotten who they are, those innate animal instincts which drive them & their lineage of true warriors, who fought & died by the code. If you would like to fight or have a personal vendetta against another man, do it old school & stop being a little bitch.

Mayet's World

And there you were, trying to keep your head up above water whilst this world kept swallowing you in. Trying to end the world’s slaughter when you were actually dying within.
Hate seeing you forgive the whole world but forgetting about yourself. A Discarded material, as I see you isolated on that shelf.
You save everyone, but who saves you? no beacon of hope, no rope to cling to.
They say you are stuck, “just evolve with the times!!”. Then why is it that you suffer for your father’s crimes?
Seems like everyone is a judge in the world of the decrepit and depraved. They put you in a box and your mind they enslaved.
Plagued by darkness, blinded by rage. Anything beats being trapped in that cage.

Dear Humans

Interesting perspective. Indeed, the world has changed in such a big way. Who would have foresaw things changing this drastically?

Rhapsody Bohème

“You fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another.”

Suddenly Disney is out of magic, Paris is no longer romantic, New York doesn’t stand up anymore, the Chinese wall is no longer a fortress, and Mecca is empty.

Hugs and kisses suddenly become weapons and not visiting parents and friends becomes an act of love.

Suddenly you realize that power, beauty and money are worthless, and can’t get you the oxygen you’re fighting for.

The world continues its life and it is beautiful. It only puts humans in cages. I think it’s sending us a message:

“You are not necessary. The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine. When you come back, remember that you are my guests. Not my masters.”

Sincerely,

Planet Earth 🙏🏼

Friendship

Just recently I made a request to friends and strangers alike to find out exactly what it is they would like me to write about or share my thoughts on. There were some interesting suggestions put forward but one topic in particular stood out. Simple, common and relatable to almost everyone, yet playing a vital role in each and everyone of our lives. Even contributing to who we are as people, affecting our views on the world, attitude and overall demeanour. We’ve all had our fair share of mishaps, disappointments and joy when it comes to friendship.

BLACKLISTED

Nowhere for you to go, not a morsel to spare.

You tried to heal your sick self, but does anybody care?

Sometimes people hear but don’t listen.

And you just gotta make do with the scraps that you’re given.

Everyone would prefer a quiet little bird, that barely makes a sound.
I guess that’s basically the same as you not being around.

I believe that every man should have his say…..
Coz even a broken clock is right at least twice a day.

Best believe that there’s one that’s always been there.
To listen to you when you’re sick & your soul is in despair.

Maybe we all lost souls looking to make a change.

Clean our dirty hearts and our lives rearrange.

I know you hear me…Even when I don’t say a word.
I just wanna be free …More free than that soaring bird.

Until I meet you, I know I’m never alone.
And that we’ll only truly be happy when we come back home.

A New World order: How twisted ideals are shaping our world and conditioning the next generation of sheep

I recently made a trip to Moscow, Russia, to participate in the Street Workout National Championships where I had the honour of representing my country in a sport I’m deeply passionate about. In addition to it being an adventure and learning experience, for a change I found myself having some down time, aloof from the stresses of daily life and the responsibilities back home. I used this time to clear my head, to gain some clarity, to do some self-reflection and , in general, to just question the plight of this spinning sphere we’re standing on. You can easily dismiss yourself from situations and nullify external influences in life but the same doesn’t hold true when it comes to the thoughts that run wild in your head. Try to run, but you can’t run from yourself!

(Pictured above: Taking a tour through Red Square with my trusty backpack)

I often wonder about this world we live in, nothing seems to make sense. Material possessions are held in the highest esteem and, strangely enough, your value is based on what you have rather than your qualities. People have made money their Lord and utilise people as a means to an end. Do the right thing or try to make positive changes, and you will be considered strange, an outcast and often ridiculed by those who don’t understand you. Blend in and portray a superficial image, be fake, be selfish (every man for himself) and nobody bets an eye. This twisted sense of reality is nauseating….celebrating/respecting men who behave more like women and women detesting the very qualities in them that we respected from the beginning of time. The liars are called truthful and the truthful are called liars. Speak the truth, be straightforward and you will be hated because people would rather have you lie to them beautifully. Indeed, a promise is a comfort to a fool. Deception has become the norm and falsehood is the order of the day. Everything we do is motivated by love. Even fear and hate are born of love, so be careful what you love 👌✌ .

(Gorky Park, Moscow City, Russia)

The captivating scenery pictured above is from the well-known Gorky Park which runs along the Moscow river and encompasses a large area of land, containing everything from beautiful flora and pathed forrests to an indoor soccer complex and training facility. All of that aside, it had an overall relaxed atmosphere with positive vibes.

Try as I might, I still couldn’t help but think of the people back home (Johannesburg, South Africa) where many issues seem to plague the country. Poverty is rife and rears its ugly head on every corner, the crime rate is amongst the highest in the world and nobody feels safe , and decent employment and education is but a luxury. And we have a government that would much rather ignore the problems, misappropriate funds, committing daylight robbery against its people by blatantly stealing from the ones who need it most. I guess that’s just a common theme in this world, in life. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. It’s always those at the lowest spectrum of society that suffer most. They punish those who ask questions, and those who possess, steal from those without possessions.

“You can easily tell the character of a man by the way he treats those who can do nothing for him”

You’re probably wondering what this has to do with the world as i see it ,or people, for that matter. Well, its simply that people give to receive. They don’t like to “help” if they don’t see any personal gain in it. This is just a common theme with people in your life if you see it on a smaller scale. Their level of respect for you is based on what you can either do for them or their image. In that sense, even the blessings and goodness of charity is lost. It’s frustrating living in a world where people are so self driven and their greed has dehumanized them.

Though the world is filled with so much darkness, best believe that the almighty has blessed people with light in their hearts. There will always be those people who don’t blindly follow the rules that society has set for themselves. The ones who don’t give a Damn about image, the servants of justice, advocates of the truth. The ones who are raw, real, genuine. The ones who say what they mean and mean what they say. Those that are both free from judgement and immune to it at the same time. By being themselves, they unconsciously allow those around them to be too. In this superficial, fake ass world…This may seem impossible but there ARE such people out there. Those are the priceless jewels of life. If you are lucky to find just one of these people in your life, hold onto them because they are products of a dying breed. These are the true soldiers and their mere existence is a rebellion against the New world order!
