    Great Pronto
    ,it brought back memories to an old geezer of 92,I was brought up like that in Germany in those days,we had bugger all except the youth movements,in which we were indoctrinated, However apart from that my childhood was not dissimilar to yours. I would recommend this poem to be read by today’s kids!!! Worth a nib.Be lucky,
    Peter.

      Thank you, Pommer, for your kind remarks and nomination. I’m only 76, a youngster by your standards. It must have been bloody awful for you living in Germany after the war, With most of the infrastructure destroyed, food shortages and occupation, a nightmare situation for sure.

    Do you think perhaps the name Tex could be better?

    I don’t know about you but Rage is my middle name until everything has a decent experience of living and dying. Not this hellish situation we all experience from the subatomic level to the largest sun in the “universe”.

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

      Thank you for reading and commenting. I know where this is coming from, I am guided by the belief on the futility of changing the world, it is not in my hands, I can only change myself, and in that, rage ruins my health, physical, mental and spiritual.

        yes make oneself better in every sense, more righteous virtuous and moral and compassionate but the goal is one and only to help others to change the world also or try on your own and you need rage against the old order. you need to be merciless towards them so that the world will be free from them forever.

          From supratik on Practise

          and in so doing, i wonder if rage can help or damage an individual physically and mentally… as for me, i know i can only change myself, i cannot change anyone else, cannot change my situation, e.g. i am jobless for the last three and a half years, plus there are other hurdles… i dont have ‘any’ reason to continue with life so to speak: but i am living with love where everyday is not a struggle, but a living lesson that is charming and light… raging war was also an option, but meditation has been my way out, it has changed my perception, i feel i was a caged bird, angry with others secreting harmful hormones and harming myself all the time, but now i am free to take on any challenge.
          But having said all this, i know there can be other perspectives I respect and completely understand.
          Blessings

            i’m jobless for the last 16 years. yes I felt the way you feel now. I tried the things you mention in my own way, but I was curious about what’s next, I felt this wasn’t enough.
            i don’t have anger. my rage is against the unseen ways humanity is being controlled.
            i don’t want to change anyone. i write and use the internet only temporarily. just for fun that is all.
