My Society

The youth should join politics! The youth should join politics, the old guard chants. We need you. You are the future. We need you. The youth should join politics. Politics where its illegal to do one thing today, and your leaders will do it tomorrow and call it okay. Politics where a sole canditate wants to campaign for a free and fair election. A sole candidate that believes what he did in the past still needs to be done in the future. The youth need to join politics they chant. We apply for jobs where the old guard doesn’t want to retire. The youth should join politics. We have to be corrupt to be something. The youth should join politics. Where a police force works best for the ruling party and closes an eye to the others. The youth should join politics. Where the ruling party is creating opportunity for scientists and limiting the arts. The youth should join politics. Aren’t artists politicians? The youth should join politics. I see street kids with no place to go. The youth should join politics. We’ve sold all our swamps to government investors. The youth should join politics. Because when we join, we should ask for a salary raise. The youth should join politics. Because we need to learn how to make shady deals. The youth should join politics. What was Temangalo for again? The youth should join politics. Because we lack appropriate medical facilities. Our hospitals are run down. Our service delivery is beyond incredulous. But the youth, the youth should join politics. Because the change starts from within. The youth should join politics. The youth should join politics.

I am tired. I am tired of a society that believes joining politics is the only get rich scheme. And when they get into power, they actually look for ways to get rich. I am tired of a society that doesn’t believe in working hard, and doing things right. I am tired of a society that doesn’t want to create change in all fields. I am tired of the old guard’s chanting, for like their ideals, they should stay in the past. We can’t move forward by looking back. So, I am moving forward. I want to see a better society. I am going to change my society. But I am not and cannot join politics.
