and "On The Turning Away".

see video down here

A LIttle Shout OUt To @nnnarvaez for reaching a milestone. 1000 followers is worth celebrating. Big Ups to yhun man. Yhu have been great to me. Love Yhu

Lets Go

Us and Them

Sometimes we feel there is a us and them on steemit. Right now i dont know what i believe. I can say there are some who are earninh high and some are earning low. Some will say there are minnows and there are whales but i got to realise that even some minnows earn more than whales on a post sometimes

And after all we're only ordinary men, Me, and you

Whales, dolphins and minnows are just ordinary men. You might be older thann some whales as a minnow but it does not change the fact that we are men

God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
Forward he cried from the rear
And the front rank died
And the General sat, as the lines on the map
Moved from side to side
Black and Blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and Down
And in the end it's only round and round and round
Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
The poster bearer cried
Listen son, said the man with the gun
There's room for you inside
Down and Out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
With, without
And who'll deny that's what the fightings all about

Ill relate this to the happenings on steemit. I wouldnt want to bve flagged so i will not mention names. We have seen a lot of things happening. Peoiple raping reward pool and some others not happy with the fact. Some angry over a comments and all, Even people who used to be friend turned enimies. In the end those with the large sp have the final say

Get out of the way, it's a busy day
And I've got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died

Spammers come to your post when you are expecting a whale to come drop and upvote.

From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won’t understand
"Don’t accepting that what’s happening
It's just a case of others’ suffering
Or you’ll find that you’re joining in
The turning away"

You dont know wheter to count yourself among the lucky ones. You feel you are still not eraning well even with the few you get but then you see others not earning at al

[Verse 2]

It’s a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting its shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we’re all alone
In the dream of the proud

Steemit that has once been a place of joy is turning to something else. Now people are living in fear. They cannot do things freely. They feel they will be caught up in the web even though they are taking the right side .

Verse 3]

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
Mesmerised as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

Instead of speaking out. Insteading of taliking and getting flagged. They gather themselves. The speechless. Those whose voice cannot be heard. Those who cannot speak. Gather around in the wings of the night and share their fears.

[Verse 4]

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It’s not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there’ll be
No more turning away?

This is getting too much, they wantn theirt voices to be heard. They have to do something. They want to take a bold step. Too much of coldness inside. Standing an staring might not be enough. They need to act. Now they act, flaggings everywhere. They wish it was onlyn a dream but it is not.

Hi @ewuoso, you entered a little late, but today starts the spanish submissions part of the same contest.

Also i liked your entry so i will count it as valid.
Just vote the other one and ask others to join.


You went the flag's way man, but when one reads between lines one sees that you've understood it beyond the silly wars...

On the wings of the night

Instead of speaking out. Insteading of taliking and getting flagged. They gather themselves. The speechless. Those whose voice cannot be heard. Those who cannot speak. Gather around in the wings of the night and share their fears.

The speechless unite in a silent accord, not to shiver and lament, or maybe for that, but that would them only be the first step to do something about!

If we work together and we build bridges between us and between them... we can make change happen, not trough confrontation, but building together, the key is bridges, open dialog and collaboration...

While there are 2 camps in steemit, there will be Turning away because both camps thinks the other one are scammers...
