Let’s Pretend

How long are we going to tiptoe
around the elephant in our living
room, pretending he is not growing,
consuming more and more of what is
ours, our human rights, civil liberties,
natural resources? When will we finally
ask, “Where are the 30,000 people who
disappear every year just in the USA?
Where are the children who no longer
play on playgrounds, or grace our lives
for they, too, have disappeared?

People of the Earth, wake up! Join
together for those who have enslaved us
have no power against our numbers
when we call forth the mighty shield
of Love. The time is now to raise our
Light and dispel the Darkness from
the Earth forever.

***********

If you have not read the trilogy, “The Hunger Games,” do so for it is a story of where we are headed if mankind does not join hands and resist those who wish to keep us enslaved.

  1. I couldn’t watch more than the first episode of the film as I found it so distressing and they also brought out video games fortnight that my grandson loves (at 8!). Yes it is all true and it is why I help inspire everyone to wake up and stop playing the enslavement game❤️ When we realise and shine our light they cannot hurt us anymore. Much love to you pat x Barbara x

    Just a couple of weeks back, a male elephant walked through the main thoroughfare of my home town in India. It came down from the nearby hills as people has encroached the nearby reserve forest – the elephant’s home. After nearly twenty hours or so, forest department officials were able to remove the jumbo to safety. The behavior of the thrill seekers was pathetic. Thank God that there was no destruction or injuries, otherwise people would have blamed the elephant.

    Thank you. The apathy towards our missing and abused is clearly outstanding.

  4. I have a similar take on movies. I think some are made in an attempt to change our truth, to hint at how we are going to “go down the tubes”, and what life could be like. Why… because when it starts happening, and we speak up, many will say it is just a movie… not real life. Those who learn, plan, and seek to be with others like minded will flourish… the rest…????

    I have read all books, and yes our society could definitely become like that in the future if socitey continues to turn a blind eye.
    Your Poem was very real and these are issues that should not be ignored. So why do so many of us seem to be living in a bubble. Only when our own bubble is shattered is when ppl truly start seeing the truth.

      I believe that it is because it is to terrifying to think that everything we have been taught to believe is a lie. We have been lied to by our government, schools, religions, etc. It shakes on to the very core to believe what is being revealed today. And many people do not have a spiritual anchor to help them, especially if they are seeing the lies of most religions. Many do not understand the difference between spirituality and religion. The awakening can be quite painful and scary until you consider the alternative. That being said, I can tell you that I now know a serenity that I never knew was possible. It is important that those who hold the Light help others who are struggling with all of this. Thanks for your thoughtful comments. hugs, pat

  6. I have not read the book nor seen the movie. I expect I will sometime. I have been thinking lately about the elephant in the room and am in awe that no one, I mean no one, seems to even know it is there.

      I expect many simply find the truth too terrifying and are in such denial that they can’t see the obvious. Ironically, the books and movies about these things, though listed as sci-fi are the truth arrogantly put in front of us to frighten us into submission. Why would schools make The Hunger Games required reading if not to add to the already strong brainwashing to not resist.

    Elephants are the most amazing creatures.

    It’s true that they can determined elephant bones from other similar sized bones.
    And they are intelligent enough to recognize their individual selves in the Mirror Test.

    They are a lot like land elephants, their sound capacity blows the human hearing scale.

    I saw my first elephant when I was about 7 years old.

    My parents took us to the circus and there was a baby elephant.

    I just wanted to see it up close.

    I didn’t realize that they were making it carry children around on it’s back.

    Before I knew what happened, I was grabbed by a carnie and put on the elephant.

    I remember the touch of it’s hide and the rhythm of it’s gait.

    but mostly, I remember crying
    for the poor baby elephant inside that loud circus tent

    and, as an adult, I wasn’t surprised to learn how devastated PT Barnum was

    when Jumbo died. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumbo

    I dream of a day when animals can just be animals in their own natural habitat niches

    because, when I go shoot animals in the wild or in sanctuaries; I use a digital camera.
