Fictional Mumblings Quoting Others

"It is beneath human dignity to lose one’s individuality and become a mere cog in the machine." Gandhi

Rebel- The surly,ungroomed, tobacco chewing biker on a road to nowhere with scruffy boots and matted clothes that are a narrative of otherness in a world of people rushing blindly towards a plateau of sameness. But there’s another rebel, softer, a more subtle version, the person who forces their way past boundaries, who challenges socialisation practices, who battles the fiercest opposition from those who mean well but essentially, mean otherwise, these rebels must duck, dive, swim with fish, and find more empathy from hibernating bears and yet trudge through, searching for an elusivity but forging an individuality all the same. And with a heart full of thankful sighs to a higher being for the opportunity to realise that, the rebel’s on the right path.

 

“If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it…”
Rudyard Kipling
