The Covid-19 pandemic has changed everyone’s life and some of us are filled with darkness, or despair because so many of us have suffered a loss. It is hard to find a bright side in these painful moments, especially since most of us are feeling a deep sense of meaninglessness about all of this senseless death. Disasters have a way of invalidating the meaning that your life had before things turned dark. It would be nice if I could emerge out of this with a deeper sense of purpose in my life and transform into the being that I am supposed to be.
It is not just the pandemic; it is also that idiot that we have for a president and his loyal following who seem to think that he is a good guy and they ignore all of his lies, that also upsets me. I see Trump as being the Dark One, a primordial, sapient, cosmic force of evil in the universe, that only cares about himself. He is the Dark Lord, a powerful villain and an evil henchman who has a history of speech and actions that have been widely viewed as racist or racially charged. It seems that he wants to divide our country by inciting hatred, which no president has ever done before. Racism has been around a long time and the way things are looking now, maybe things will actually change for the better as no particular race is superior or inferior to another, and no person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by their inborn biological characteristics.
Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Sunday Writing Prompt where we are supposed to use the following quote for inspiration, “The Dark Night of the Soul is a purging process that calls us to release all that is unhealed or unnecessary— releasing all that is in the way of our highest good” and this challenge is hosted by Yves.
