Bamboozled No More! Are You Crazy?


 

Are you crazy?
This is the response of those who don’t care and won’t admit they don’t know the answer.

Are you crazy?

This is the response which has been tooled and hurled as a weapon into the heart of the one who questions.

The words are delivered as a warning, bearing the promise of isolation, hell fire and eternal damnation.

Are you crazy?

The words are spoken to the infant in place of a lullaby. It is the chant that makes sleep worrisome, inspires fear, doubt and births insecurities.

Are you crazy?

Remember how the words made you cringe? How ‘they” tried to seduce you into disowning your spirit. They want you to answer NO because there is comfort in numbers.

Are you crazy?

You are sitting in Hell. Now think how different things would have been if you responded YES!
