See me in the streets son!
So I had a conversation with my grandmother today about fighting/violence and things of the sort and we both were at a loss as to why people enjoyed it. Me personally I don't like violence and even when I'm pissed off I'd rather talk it out or just walk away from the situation instead of hitting someone in the face. I've some fights in person and watched even more on youtube, not because I like it, but because I'm just amazed at the spectacle. It's ridiculous and even more scary to see how people act when a fight breaks out. Almost reminds me of the Gladiator Colosseum in the days of the old. Watching two people beat on each other for sometimes as long as 5+ minutes will constantly egging them on and sometimes jumping in. And what's even more sad is people would join the fight before they would try and stop it from happening. It's like people aren't fully aware that there are two people in there practically beating each other to death, or maybe they are completely aware of that and just don't care which is even worse. Coming from experience being involved in a fight is a scary feeling because it's pretty much you trying to survive and on top of that people barely fight fair anymore so then fights nowadays truly do become a matter of life and death. I think the aftermath of a fight bothers me more than the fight itself at times. Just the scene of disturbing to me. Blood everywhere, sometimes teeth, someone struggling to stand up or not getting up at all. I think it may be because I'm a very visual person but that's an image that always sticks with me. Things like Boxing, Martial Arts and other fights done for sport don't really bother me because these people are trained to do this, there are strict rules involved and if someone's in true danger (except for accidents) then the fight will be stopped. Sadly this doesn't apply to the outside world and that's always gonna bother me because I don't see that ever changing as long as I'm on this earth smh. I think we'd all be better off with a little bit more love in this world. I'm gonna stop rambling on now so I'll just leave yall with a little message that Lupe's been giving lately at all his concerts, "Love Always Shines Everytime Remember 2 Smile". I wish all of yall the best and be safe out there ppl. Rock on from Krypton
