Rage Against the Machine Day 19 by Chitanand Naas

Into the Depths by Chitanand Nass   The more I chase happiness the more it eludes me Why is something so intrinsically, so intimately a part of us, so hard to grasp and feel? – like trying to grab water with bare hands – only fleeting moments nudge us along this endless search, sludging through the …

Rage Against the Machine Day 18 by Amar Gressel

Stemming the Tide by Amar Gressel   There is no machine except for the one I create with my mind. My rage exists only when I cannot accept that which has been gifted to me. Rage will never serve to provide peace, only to destroy it. Do you have any fucking idea who I am? I …

Rage Against the Machine Day 17 by Amy

I don’t understand… by Amy of GARDEN2DAY   I have watched society go humming along until we hit some type of snag causing the bottom to fall out landing us in some alternate state of reality. I like to say we fell down the rabbit hole and can’t find our way out but truth, we …

Rage Against the Machine Day 16 by Trevor Washington

Hear Me Roar By Trevor Washington   Let me share a secret with you, right in the beginning so that you won’t feel cheated later, I don’t actually believe in peace – at least not in the way we normally think of it on a very human, idealistic level. On a transcendental level?… well that’s …

Rage Against the Machine Day 12 by Oliana Kim

Searching By Oliana Kim of Traces of the Soul   When I was about sixteen, I heard on the radio about a little boy of five years old who was shot dead and his father shot himself but was still alive. The broadcaster gave the name of the father. I recognized the name and later when I turned …

Rage Against the Machine Day 11 by Sherry Marr

EARTH GRIEF by Sherry Marr of Stardreaming With Sherry Blue Sky I have always been a strong, stoic person. I had to be; as a single mother of four, I was the one who had to get everybody through, look after everyone else, be a strong oak, for my fledglings to lean on. But seven …

Rage Against the Machine Day 10 by Kathie Arcide

An Anecdote or Antidote for Rage by Kathie Arcide of Chosen Perspectives     I am NOT a big picture person. It is excruciating for me to try to grasp the larger workings of the world, and I have known this about myself my whole life.
