It’s a place where you’re safe. Cozy, warm and surrounded by beautiful things. Everything is soft, luxurious and at your finger tips.
There are a pair of rose-tinted glasses at every window. So when you look out the window, nothing hurts your eyes. You don’t see the whole picture, just half. Of course there is only a half to every story..OF COURSE!
There’s also a beautiful white horse waiting at the bottom of the stairs, it’s there for you.. For you, and for you only!
There are gloves – white ones of course. As it’s just too hard to get your hands dirty.. Everything needs to be protected.
Living in an Ivory Tower is not where I reside nor do I want to!
I’m not going to jump on my white horse and gallop through the town chanting “I’m here I will fix everything”. No, I won’t because that’s NOT REAL!
NOTHING is black and white. Shit isn’t easy. If you want to help, if you want to make a difference, get out of your stupid tower, take off those rose tinted glasses and for christ’s sake take those off those gloves.
It’s so easy to sit in your Ivory Tower and say ohh it’s simple “just do this”. Well if it were that simple our society wouldn’t be experiencing such terrible, awful, disgusting things like child abuse, neglect and the likes.
Our problem in our society is we are experiencing an empathy epidemic. We’re too busy living in our Ivory Towers.
You see, people don’t want to live like this. They don’t want to see their neighbour abuse their children. They want to live in an Ivory tower too.
I may not do things perfectly, actually I fuck shit up daily, And i’m certainly nothing special. And I may run on a fine line of what is right and what is wrong (in some people’s eyes) however please don’t point your finger at me.
UNLESS you’ve taken off your white gloves, gotten off your high horse, realise we don’t live in a perfect world, and have actually put yourself forward to POSITIVELY contribute to the lives of others and hopefuly make our community just that little bit better.
I believe listening with a compassionate ear will help. It will change things.. Pointing from your ivory tower will not!
Rant over.. Sorry had to get that off my chest. I’m so over dealing with “this”. And just finishing.. Thanks to all the beautiful I.M’s that choose not to reside in the Ivory Tower you make my life a hell of a lot easier.
