Recycled Glass

Glass

Drinking glass…. humans.
When something strong (problems) comes along and you’ve taken too much or hits you very hard, you can break.
You can only hold so much and then, everything overflows.
When the load placed on top of you becomes too heavy, you may break.
But, when you’re stacked correctly with other glasses (the love of others around you), everyone can become stronger, hold more.. push on further.. farther than the usual limit.
You can fill anything within you; Good stuff… bad stuff… (choices that you make, paths that you take, what you say and do).
Change yourself… Get influenced by others around.. When all the glasses around you have gorgeous motifs and you’re the only plain glass.
Do you start wishing to be like the rest?
Or when other glasses are filled with poison and you’re only filled with plain water.
Everyone else thinks that they’re fine, but, you’re weird and different.
How’d you or they to know who’s right, when the view has been skewed?
The rest are kept in a nice glass cupboard for viewing, as, they’re too beautiful and expensive to be used and you… this poor cheap glass is always being used.
Always washed and reused, whilst, they sit there looking pretty and get cleaned once every 6 months.
How’s one to say which has more worth?
By the cost? By the usage? Which is more useful to society and/or yourself? To be sold afterwards, as an investment? Just to look pretty… a background wallpaper?

When you do break down and in time to come, decide to start again (pull yourself together and stand up again), the glass has just been recycled into a new drinking glass.❤

Family

It’s been like this for a few years now.
There would be times, when, I would unknowingly stare at my parents (without them noticing).
Then, start to notice the extra white hair or less thereof… more wrinkles… their weary voice… how much they’ve aged.
Before it struck me that, I’m going to lose them some day.
Then, I’d either choke back my tears or cry quietly somewhere else.

That awkward moment when half your random pub team members are made up of islamophobes. 😂

Some immature people who finds it funny to make fun of another player (who was from Malaysia, but, admitted that he isn’t even a Muslim – I have no idea who all these people are – I was pubbing alone). The usual mentions of bombing, Allah, ISIS, etc. Just because, he was awful at playing even though, he was a high level. Although, it doesn’t seem too extreme, after I voiced out a little. Not much, because, one: it’s a pub and we’ll go seperate ways after the 15 mins game; two: who cares about what keyboard warriors think?; three: it looked more like youngsters talking crap rather than the real deal anyway.

I was more worried that the guy would get emotional over, what I see as cyber-bullying, because, they asked him to leave the game.

Racism after Brexit results?

Seeing a lot of articles on the Brexit.
Following the results, the faces of reality emerged.
Racism is surfacing.
Wouldn’t know how far some people have went to show their true colours and how much it is true… it could be only a small percentage that’s doing so and is being publicised to seem more than it should.
Either way, it’s still way more than what it used to be.
I was in London twice early this year and was only belittled twice, on the first trip, which I couldn’t care less.
As, it’s a fact that there’d always be someone not liking something somewhere.
But the amount of news on this, as of the past few days, is intimidating.

Sure… if I do go there, I’d only be a traveller and not someone, like the rest of them, have lived there for years and being discriminated.
But, who would even care to know whether you’re a dweller or traveller, if they’re a racist, by heart?
Not that people will travel there until everything has cooled down…. right?

I feel sorry for the “non-white” people, even if they were born there and/or have been living there most of their life.
Just for not being “white” enough to live amongst them?
It’s sad to see how things turn around so quickly.
What’s the world coming to?
Once the US election results are out by the end of the year, there’d probably be another huge hoo-haa.
Hope they can stay safe.
