'Tanya Sama Hati', Day One
Next short story:

Judging from my previous entries, one might think that your humble writer might be hating on the rich. Truth be said, neither does he hate rich people nor does he dislike wealth (duh!). Many of my friends too are people who are well off. Also. I’ve recently have with my own eyes come to know many generous rich old chaps who assist and help organizations and needy people. A respected scholar I know said, “We compliment each other, the rich needs the religious and the religious needs the rich.” He also added that it is always better to give people the benefit of the doubt. Still, whenever I think of the oil rich Arab countries and compare them to African countries or other Asian countries. It just makes one go, “Hope for humanity…*Poof*”

 Having said that let me explain myself; what I have a deep dislike for is the arrogance, the misuse of power, the special treatment, the disparity, unfairness, capitalization and the list just goes on. Still, if only the poor stop betraying the poor and stop preferring the rich to their own kind, things would be so much better. It is also the delusion of the poor who thinks by helping the rich, he too might get wealthier hence he betrays his own kind. Alas we are often cursed with a hollow mindset. Again, I don’t dislike money, I dislike the effect money brings to people. It changes them into monsters. Let us hope and pray that we don’t swerve and turn our backs from humanity and from being human and humane if were to ever obtain wealth.

 Recently From an entry of mine, I’ve been getting some feedbacks that made certain individuals think that I am against earning a living or something (Yes, there are humans who read my work). To that I say, I waste too much money on things I don’t really need hence that makes me ‘pro-living’?

 Finally, amongst the the things I wholeheartedly despise, is the demented delusion people have or are programmed to believe that wealth = happiness. To that I say, well I don't want to say anything because what I say has no substance neither weight. Let's look at the bright side and hope we all become brighter both outwardly and inwardly.


p.s. This is a good clip to watch:

about the writer


Often seen as cold, bitter and distant but in reality is cool, sweet and not very distant..haha Sometimes I feel like saying what Kierkegaard said, People understand me so poorly that they even dont understand my complain about them not understanding me. On the other hand often I assume of understanding people i guess its a given or an irony or something else..depends on how you see it..
