It’s easy to pontificate when your pockets are full, when you haven’t nearly died (which I have),
when you haven’t lost your teef (which I have),
when you haven’t been sectioned (which I have),
when your stomach hasn’t exploded inside of you (which mine has),
when you haven’t fallen onto train tracks and split your head open (which I have) and when you don’t have Type 1 Diabetes (which I do).
The list is endless and all I’ve ever wanted to do is change the lives of all of us, for the better.
I’ve seen and met more misery than I care to share. Good for me, or a shame for me. You’ll all be the judges. By the way, I’m only 30 years old.
But I feel that people who feel comfortable, aren’t up for all that nonsense. I’m a postman. I deliver people’s unwanted bills every day and everything I’ve explained is why I’d like an nonviolent revolution. For all of us.
I’m truly speaking from embittered experience here.
I just want change for all of us and luckily, I’ve still got the drive to make it happen.
