Empty Puppets by Gervanna “Gravity” Stephens

Push my buttons, string me along; make me dance or sing a song. Heart beats fast, I’m under your spell. I’m an empty puppet, but no one can tell.

We are all under the control of one thing or the other. Whether it’s our religion, the government, the education system, the materialistic concept of the world or the idealistic nature of our society, we are all led by something. We oft are voiceless puppets for we never truly understand why we lean more towards a particular fad or why we fall prey to consumer advertising whether directly or indirectly. We let emotions rule us from time to time not paying much attention to the concept posed by Elizabeth Kenny that “he who angers you, conquers you.” We need to perceive our surroundings differently, not be influenced by the corporations, the media, the church or even the school system. Not be influenced too by this article.

The strings that control us are not invisible, we just fail to look keenly and think critically about situations. The analytic mind is a gift to the world; don’t deny the masses the privilege of experiencing concise structured thinking. Don’t deny our children the opportunity to excel, for if our children are controlled, what is to become of the future.

Puppet masters hold your tongue, kill your will and bid you adieu on the best of days. Damage your resolve and ‘wish’ you well; wishes are nothing to the dead. For that is what you will be if it all goes according to plan and the plan says you lose by the puppet master’s hand.
Step left, step right, now look up, higher, higher, it’s almost out of sight, see the strings? Now cut them with all your might.

  1. Sadly too true how unaware we are of things that control us. But the quote, “He who angers us, controls us,” might free us from many inner shadows if written instead, “He who angers us, reflects our blind side.”
