In days that see Media Hype and even expose at most the negative rather than the positive to serve their goals that again often misguide the viewer from their intended goals in achieving what could be an intended Goal in their walk in Life. Thus below is my poem that stakes a little view or take on the confusion that media hype can bring to normality of life.
Do we believe the hype? Or do we continue to finish the race that we set to run, in carrying out a simple task in this walk in Life. As with everything today we are ruled by media hypeing one end of a tale that seeks to guide the viewers to the end road that media seeks to steer viewers to. Be it in Politics, in Faith or Lack of faith, in Health or any other area in our walk in Life we as people are losing our creative bite to the media hype. Thus the poem beloe is my
Sitting staring at untold tales
That exposed my silent thought
To stars a cause to blow like gales
Rampant in fears that which I fought.
Longing Loving to clear the tide of fear
That carried the flames that burned
the unquinched thirst for Life Near
to the extinct realms which it churned.
Boldly believe the hype that steers
To cage you towards the endless trek
Else stay the course allay the fears
That keeps you from the roads your trek
Steer Safely from the dragons Claws
That keeps you within the chains that Hype .
