I was riding in a taxi last night and was debating with myself about where to get off. Where I lived was within sight from the taxi however it was not on its route and I would have to walk a small distance to go there and it was already quiet dark. Unfortunately I could not do this. I had to pass where I lived, ride aaaaaalll the way into town and pay R50 for a cab to take me BACK where I live and to drop me off at my doorstep.All because of one reason… fear.
Fear of what one may ask,this is not a Game Reserve, there are no wild animals roaming the streets of Pietermaritzburg and it couldn’t have been Ghosts because I don’t believe those even exist. I was rather, scared of people. My fellow brothers and sisters, who according to the good book are supposed to be my “keepers”. Its sad that we live in a world where a person cannot walk freely and has to constantly look over their shoulders in constant fear of what another HUMAN BEING would do. I think I would feel safer in the density of the Amazon rain forests, in the presence of rattle snakes and exotic beasts than in the streets of South Africa.
There was a one liner joke that was going around not so along, it went something like …”where are you? The zoo called and said they’re missing a monkey.” Actually that was more of a reality that a joke, that person wasn’t very far from the truth. Human behavior these days has stooped to that of animals if not lower.
If a person can walk from their front door to the driveway and back these days they have to come back and thank their lucky stars and be glad that their still alive. Its sad to know that there are sick twisted individuals out there who get pleasure in causing other people pain and who are so useless and lazy to do anything for themselves that they resort to stealing and robbing those who have worked so hard for themselves. Its a sad reality of the world we live in,and I’m not pointing fingers.However I found this really interesting quote online that just felt… closer to home.*winx*
