"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."


- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry


I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

This Is A Call To Arms!




I've had just enough time to...   question the call to arms.


Taken in my favourite hotel museum in Malacca, Malaysia.



This is a call to arms!
Weary soldiers, pick up your swords
And fallen shields
Leave your fallen comrades behind

Brace yourself for the onslaught
Though your weary arms refuse to obey
Steel your heart and plunge your steel
Into the heart of your fallen enemy






This is a call to arms!
Defend your country
Defend your brothers
Defend your family
Defend your pride
Defend your manhood
Defend your belief
Defend your religion
Defend your creed
Defend everyone
Defend everything

But…
Who is there to defend me?

_______


Fight For The Kingdom Bound For Glory
Armed With A Heart Of Steel
I Swear By The Brothers Who Stand Before Me
To No Man Shall I Kneel
Their Blood Is Upon My Steel
Blood Is Upon My Steel

Call to arms - Manowar

    I hate the word "patriotism" these days, the way that it is being used by the politicians. Especially the corrupt ones who robbed the country blind and then accused you of being unpatriotic because you do not blindly wave the flag and threatened to soak your knife with the blood of all those who are "unpatriotic". And who are these "unpatriotic" people? They are anyone who do not subscribe to their war-mongering ideology. Today it is them. Tomorrow it may be you! When I am accused of being "unpatriotic", I take pride in that it means I am patriotic because I question what is good for my country instead of charging in with a knife ready to slaughter just because the one running the country wants to do the thinking for me.

    What an antimilitaristic concept strongly presented through the versatile side of your nature and your writing style.
    A grand image with magnificence and trumpets to call to peace,reason and social justice. I wonder,who is going to stop them from thinking for us without us ?
    Shall we ever manage to change the course of the well-orchestrated situations or is it an illusory vision ?
    I assume most of us just follow apathetically,unable to face the day-to-day reality and we are simply sacrificed at the alter of their sick ideologies and notions.Apparently, they,very well, know how to manipulate the power of our weakness ...
    Big question marks and dilemmas for the intellectuals,Thou, and plenty of Trojan horses in our societies ...
    Loved the spirited quality of your thoughts and your trumpet that loudly proclaimed peace and blarred war against war, condemning the dirty propagandism and the false-patriotism that poison our lives and thoughts.
    Blessed those who know how to defend themselves ...
    Stay well dear friend Thou !!!!
