As humans, we are born with hands and feet. Our limbs are what enables us to move forward day by day and reach out for whatever we desire. While there are certainly limitations, as humans, we can only rely on our limbs to move towards whatever we seek.
Our legs bring us as close to what we seek as possible while our hands reach out to claim that which we desire. Even if it means that we must first let go of the things we currently hold close at hand.
This week has been a string of not so positive posts so I figured that instead of going for the first song that came to mind when I saw the theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, I should go for a more positive song.
It’s been ages since I last participated in Song Lyric Sunday but I figured it was worth starting again. Or rather, it was a rather fun and easy post to get ready for the weekend which I usually spend binge watching anime and have little time to actually write anything.
Anyways, this week’s theme is basically about myself as well as those around us. At least that’s what I deduced from the multiple choices that is I/Me/Them/Us/You/We.
When I think of people in general, I think of how difficult they are to understand and get along with. I feel that many of us aren’t all that great at getting along with others and even ourselves. As humans, we are just too full of flaws that are jarring to look at. We are constantly trying to act in a manner that others as well as ourselves would be able to accept. As a result, we are constantly faced with an internal struggle to determine what kind of person we should be. Desires, morals and ambitions all mesh together to form this clay model of our “self” that easily morphs into something else when pressured.
Do we hate ourselves or love ourselves? We swing between the two extremes and are unable to agree on who exactly we are or who exactly we should be.
At the same time, those who are more judgmental, are constantly thinking of ways to grade other people based on their actions. Depending on their judgement, they either reject or accept the person as an individual.
